Four Acres Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Four Acres is a cul-de-sac community on a single road, Rand Drive. Centrally located between Canterbury and Mayfair Road, this neighborhood is well established and well manicured. One- and two-story homes line this family-oriented street. Hardwood trees and pines adorn open spaces, giving the illusion of privacy while adding the comfort of close neighbors.
