The 4 bedroom/3 bathroom home  is listed for $2,850 a month, which includes landscaping and housecleaning. It has nice walls of glass and deck and patio in the trees. The subdivision was the first of a string of “contemporary” communities developed by Miller & Smith in the 1960s and early ’70s. They also built Wessynton, Truro and Drumaldry.
