This is a neighborhood of strong contrasts. Some streets are very heavily wooded and others are not. Some older homes need updating, while other homes are modern with well manicured lawns. The area is quite steep and hilly, with very narrow streets and no sidewalks. Homes are designed in either bungalow or ranch styles.
Townhouse-style condos occupy the southern area of the neighborhood on Crest Green Road. While all the homes in the neighborhood are affordable, these newer townhouses, offering three bedrooms and two and a half baths, are a true bargain.

Other one, two, and three bedroom apartments occupy Crest Valley Way. The complex includes a swimming pool and playground. Pets under 25 pounds are also welcome.
