GREAT PLACES AND SPACES
Our version of Walden Pond
Head west on U.S. Highway 98, and just before Twenty Mile Bend, you reach Arden, a 1,209-acre community that Henry David Thoreau might enjoy. The centerpiece of the development by master planner Freehold Communities is a 5-acre farm and event barn. Residents can volunteer to work with the development’s full-time farmers and share in the harvest of fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers. Arden also has 20 miles of trails, 500 acres of parks and green space and 175 acres of lakes. Ryan Homes, Lennar and Kenco are among the developers. Prices start in the mid-$300,000s.
