Carrington and Carrington Lakes
Carrington may be 6 miles north from downtown Trussville but this does not stop it from being the most prestigious neighborhood in the city. The distance from downtown gives Carrington a more rural feel, as do the tree-lined streets, nature preserve and wonderful views from some of the homes in Carrington. Then there’s the exclusive gated community of Carrington Lakes where you can go fishing and boating on the lakes, hike the nature trails and spend time in the fabulous pool and clubhouse. Whether you’re looking for a family home on an acreage or you just want to be close to the great outdoors yet still within reach of Trussville, Carrington is the place to call home.
