Afton Village is a neo-traditional neighborhood designed to be a throw-back to the days when homes had front porches, sidewalks, and said howdy to their neighbors as they took their evening stroll. It’s made of custom, local-craftsman built single-family homes with large front porches and rear-load garages. Built in the 2000s, the homes are in both ranch and two-story styles with that traditional neighborhood feel.
Afton Park is adjacent to Afton Village. The homes are smaller, less expensive and are built by national builders. Afton Village homes range from $150,000 to $400,000, while Afton Park homes are typically below $200,000.
