The northeast Columbus community of Sharon Woods consists of almost 1700 residential homes, along with a community pool and park.  Developed in the 1960's and 70's by The Metzger Brothers, with a number of different builders creating quality custom built homes.  Homes are situated on quiet, tree-lined streets with generous yards.  Currently these homes range in price from $100,000 to $200,000, and attract many family minded buyers.  There is an active civic association, which publishes The Gatepost Newsletter, and a vigilant block watch.  The Alpine Elementary School and Beechcroft High School are also located inside Sharon Woods.  Adjacent to Sharon Woods is the 761 acre Sharon Woods Metropolitan Park with wooded walking paths and 14 acre stocked fishing lake, part of the extensive Columbus Metropolitan Park system.  A branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library and a YMCA are very close by.  Shopping and dining are only minutes away, along with easy access to the interstate and major roads in Columbus.  Sharon Woods is equidistant in driving time (about 10 minutes) from either historic downtown Worthington or Westerville.  Both of these picturesque towns feature a walk-able downtown shopping district with quaint cafes and shops.
