Berry Creek, in southwest Stillwater, is radiating with the American Dream. Three phases of completed and almost fully occupied homes, an enclave of garden homes – a gated section of the community where landscaping is provided for homeowners – and two still-to-come phases round out the 205-home community, which is billed as a haven of respite for busy families. A waterfall at the neighborhood’s entrance greets residents, who also enjoy a swimming pool and a community clubhouse. Stillwater’s other dwelling options include Deer Ridge, the first eco-minded development in the area that features Energy Star ratings for each home. Historic Homes If Berry Creek is a facet of Stillwater’s new face, College Gardens is the city’s heritage. The sense of history is almost palpable in this decades-old neighborhood, where distinguished homes grace meandering streets lined with mature trees. The neighborhood, convenient to the university and downtown, is a unique blend of longtime residents and vibrant students, all of whom share a distinct pride of ownership in their homes. It’s close to downtown, and when a home here comes onto the market it doesn’t stay there for long. Retirement Options for retired residents include Stillwater Country Club, which sits on an 18-hole golf course; and a variety of retirement communities such as The Renaissance and the Sterling House of Stillwater.
