The Arden Heights real estate market is primarily composed of townhomes. These thoughtfully designed units are a fantastic compromise between an apartment and a full-sized home. Like a detached single-family home, many townhomes are accompanied by small yards where you can play fetch with your dog or plant vegetables or flowers in neat displays. Like an apartment, townhomes tend to feature more compact floor plans. A smaller home means that residents can spend less time maintaining their home and more time doing the things they love.
If you choose to invest in a townhome, you will also find that many of the exterior costs are shared between neighbors. If you needed a new roof or major landscaping changes needed to be made, the costs wouldn’t burden a single homeowner; they would be divided among those within the community.
Village Greens is one of the main townhome communities in Arden Heights. It is composed of four sub-neighborhoods:

- Hampton Green

Development of this community started in 1995 and reached completion in 2006. Residents of the community can enjoy the pool, clubhouse, basketball courts, tennis courts, and children’s playground. Additionally, this community is bordered by a large wooded area. For residents this means a quiet, natural space where they can enjoy a walk among the trees.
