Have you ever heard of Trussville’s Carrington Lakes? I hadn’t either, until I had the chance to go there recently and take a look around. What I found surprised me.

If you’re longing for a sweet home in a community that offers the best of the great outdoors, and is actually only about half an hour from Birmingham, you need to schedule a tour.

1—Carrington Lakes is so inviting

Doesn’t that speak for itself? The outdoors is so inviting. And, we were surprised when we stepped inside the model home. It’s just gorgeous, and they thought of everything.

2—Carrington Lakes is all about enjoying the outdoors

It’s not just the homes that draw people to Carrington Lakes. Or the award-winning Trussville schools. Or the fact that it’s a half hour from downtown Birmingham on I-59.

When people buy a home in Carrington Lakes, they also get a host of things other people go on vacation to experience.

This is an ideal setting for a bridal shower, a graduation party, or just hanging out. Downstairs, you’ll find these things, too:

  • Exercise room—because sometimes it rains, and you still want to work out
  • Party room you can go in with wet feet from the pool—kids’ birthday parties, anyone?

Because sometimes you just need to feel the sand between your toes. There’s also an outdoor amphitheater up the hill where you can gaze at the stars or bring a band out.

Five lakes

Three of us from Bham Now went out to Carrington Lakes and we pretty much wanted to move in once we saw the inside of the model home.

While enjoying the outdoors, you can definitely feel like you’re on vacation, inside, the feeling is 100% home.

There’s a cozy home office just off the foyer, an incredible kitchen that opens out into a family room, a mud room just off the garage, plus bedrooms and spa-like bathrooms upstairs. And this is just one floorpan.

New homes sell for between $260,000 and $420,000, with a range of floor plans and views to choose from.
