I live in this development and it is just as pleasant as it looks in Mike's pictures.  It is a throw back to the days when folks watched each other's children grow up and had neighborhood bar-b-ques.  We still do!

Thanks!  I can't answer the fencing question.  I imagine the HOA would have to approve.  I don't recall seeing fenced yards, though, on the thownhomes.
