The following will describe the Thornbury development, including an extensive video of Thornbury  at the bottom of the article.

Thornbury has its very own playground and private walking path.


Being part of Thornbury is more than just living in a nice home, it offers a sense of community as well. Our clients who have bought here not only love their homes but also the lifestyle that is offered to them. 

Complete with it’s own walking path and playground, Thornbury is viewed by many as a close-knit neighborhood. People are always out biking, jogging, and walking their dogs, and the neighborhood children are always seen playing with each other.

Since Thornbury is a relatively new development, many of the residents have only lived here for a short period of time. It is a somewhat transient neighborhood. Therefore, it is conducive for easily meeting others within the development. This is ideal for those relocating to Cleveland, or moving here from other area suburbs. 

There is also a small street at the entrance of  Thornbury, set away from the rest of the development, that consists of one story cluster homes. These are ideal for empty-nester’s or those who prefer a lower maintenance living. There is a monthly fee for those who live in the cluster homes and it covers landscaping and snowplow.
