Does Acton Only Have Ranch Properties?
Although Acton has plenty of ranch type properties, there are still a few somewhat traditional neighborhoods to be found. Overall, the lots and homes are larger and it’s obvious residents enjoy more elbow room and privacy. Also, most homes are larger single story type dwellings. Though you might find an occasional guest home type property, there are no condos or town homes to be found in Acton.
Here in Acton, the weather is a bit more harsh than in Santa Clarita and for the most part, so don’t see perfectly manicured green lawns. On the other hand, there are some nicely maintained ranch type properties, perfect for horses, etc. Still, lots of dirt so if that’s a problem, Acton is probably not a good choice.
