While both the single family homes and townhomes are considered to be part of Deer Run Crossing, the homeowners’ association is only comprised of the 62 townhomes. First developed in 1978, these wood-brick townhomes have private fenced back yards, at least 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. There are several different styles to choose from. This is a very private community where the units face trees and not other homes. Each townhouse has 2 reserved parking spaces; there is plenty of street parking available for guests. Common areas are regularly maintained by a landscape contractor and by community clean-up days. A unique feature of this community is that trash is collected twice weekly from behind the townhomes, not in front. HOA fees also include mowing and twice yearly fertilizing of owners’ front and side yards. According to the association’s website, residents enjoy getting together for pot-luck dinners and block parties.
