Cuthbertson Village is divided into three neighborhoods, each with 15 private residences, a country kitchen, living room, family room and secure courtyard. Each of the 45 private residences has its own full bath. All three neighborhoods connect to a common area reminiscent of a 1930's and 40's-era town square comprised of a soda shop, theater, pet store, general store, garden shop, and a barber and beauty shop all around a fountain, stream, skylight and aviary.
