Maple Grove Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Maple Grove community encompasses a large tract off of Lawson Road in Birmingham’s 35217 zip code. El Camino Drive and Harris Avenue form a an area of sprawling, casual lawns. With brick and wood houses sitting on hilltops or back in small glens wrapped by naturally wooded regions, this country setting is reminiscent of a delightful drive to Grandma’s.
Well-established dwellings tuck themselves into beautiful green spots just past a curve or beyond the slight roll of a hill. The neighborhood of Maple Grove is an ecological retreat for daily living. Small, retro cottages with one or two bedrooms interlace with larger five bedroom homes. Houses within the vicinity offer fireplaces, small front porches, and outdoor wildlife.
Much of the Maple Grove district remains undeveloped, and available properties are scattered throughout the sector. On the paved El Camino Drive, a country village is forming. Only parts of Harris Avenue are paved, so many areas on this street are natural, established woodlands. Visitors to the area may discover off-leash pets, vegetable gardens, or cooperative neighbors shelling peas together.
Located in Jefferson County adjacent to Penfield Park, Maple Grove lies near a large lake. In fact, picturesque views of the lake are within easy walking distance of most homes. Deer, raccoon and squirrel are common in this region.
Locals appreciate the nearby Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and the Rite-Aid Pharmacy.
Public education is represented by Sears and North Roebuck Elementary, Martha Gaskins and Smith Middle, and the Hoover High Freshman Center. Each of these schools sit within two miles of Maple Grove.
