My bf and I (not engaged yet) are looking at a job for him in Wichita. Neither of us are familiar with the city. Can you recommend neighbhorhoods or suburbs that are nice? We don't need a bar scene (no condo in Old Town necessary). In fact, we would like at least 2 acres and some privacy. We are okay driving 20-30 minutes to get to shopping, restaurants, work, etc. BF will be working near the main airport on the southwest side of town. I work for myself so I won't have to worry about commuting.
We've heard Andover, Goddard and Derby are nice. Any thoughts on Maize, Haysville, Rose Hill or Valley Center? Can we get a decent sized lot within Wichita city limits or are lots typical city size - 1/4 - 1/3 of an acre?
Our house budget will be $250-275K. We could go higher if we found something we loved. We do not have children so the school district is only important for resale purposes.
