Looking for a hometown where neighbors live next to each other instead of piled up on top of each other? Well, then this little city in Maine is the perfect pick. Auburn is huge in terms of square mileage, and tiny in terms of population size, giving everyone plenty of room to spread out and enjoy their river valley surroundings. If wide-open spaces are more your thing, look towards Taylor Pond. One of the most popular suburban neighborhoods is around Pettingail Park, where nice sidewalks, safe streets, a couple of shops, and the library are all close by. The library, by the way, is stunning and has a great collection of children's books.
Most of the property rentals are made up of one and two bedroom apartments. Many traditional Main residences have been converted into two and four-unit apartments for those who enjoy the feel of a quaint little house, but only want to pay the price of a cheap one bedroom apartment. There are also plenty of small brick apartment buildings and townhome-style apartments, some of which can be found along the Androscoggin River. Rental homes are another option, with some adorable farmhouses on large lots.
The amenities of Auburn's apartment rentals are more convenience-oriented than luxury-oriented. Community extras such as parking, laundry facilities, and storage are the most common amenities. There are a few apartments where residents enjoy longer lists of amenities, including things like playgrounds, basketball courts, computer labs, and community gardens.
If you're looking for a pet friendly property rental, then you’ll be happy to know that Auburn has plenty of cat and dog friendly places to live. A lot apartments and rental homes include large back yards and easy access to nearby parks and riverfront, making for some especially pet friendly pads.
That's a slice of Auburn living for you. Enjoy!
