Cottage Grove

This neighborhood was once filled with cottages (hence the name), but if you drive through it today as compared to 20 years ago one would hardly recognize it. The neighborhood has had an influx of young professionals who want to live inside the 610 loop move into the neighborhood; and as a result of the changing demographics and no historic zoning restrictions, this area has seen very robust activity from builders who are buying the older homes and replacing them with multiple townhomes. If you move to Cottage Grove and your neighbors are not currently living in a townhome, just give it time as they very likely will be in the future. Also, if you like to entertain and have guests over frequently take note that due to the proliferation of townhomes and sometimes narrow streets, parking can be a problem.
