Surrounding our small towns featuring quaint shops and specialty restaurants, families and individuals can find housing for every taste and need. Townhouses, in a decidedly rural setting, attract young families. Growing families can select from wide range of affordable single-family housing. Golf course communities such as Wakefield Valley, Challedon, Oakmont Green and the Francis Scott Key Golf Club offer prestigious executive homes. Agricultural settings still abound in Carroll County, with family farms ranging from ten-acre farmettes to multi-acre operations. When residents become more dependent, retirement communities such as Fairhaven and Carroll Lutheran Village provide a continuum of care for hundreds of older citizens who enjoy a country setting.
