Century Hills is situated on some pretty good sized rolling hills. The topography reminds me of the Scenic Oaks Subdivision in southwest Rochester. These rolling hills provide walkout lower level basements, a bit more privacy in the backyards and some great views. Mature trees along the soft ravines and off in the distance provide some beautiful vistas. See Map Below.
Most homes were built between 1998 and 2016. You will find quite a few two-story and ranch homes in Century Hills, many with walkout lower levels but some on flat lots. There may be an occasional split-level home but not many. Because these are newer homes, most will have 3 car attached garages. Lot sizes vary from .17 acres to 1.41 acres with the mean size being .31 acre in size. Homes are connected to city sewer and water.

Century Hills subdivision is located in Northeast Rochester. It sits on the very eastern edge of Rochester. Is was developed around the same time as East Circle Drive (aka County Rd 22 East) was put in for easy access to Century High School. It is an easy drive to get from the Century Hills area to downtown - most people take Viola Road NE. Rochester Community and Technical College (RCTC) and Quarry Hill Park are just down the road and it is right across the street from Century High School.
The closest shopping is the Shopko North complex on North Broadway. The only full service grocery store with a NE address is Silver Lake Foods IGA, a wonderful locally owned grocery in Silver Lake Center with fabulous weekly specials on their meats and a local butcher. Other nearby grocery stores are Cub Foods in SE Rochester and Hy-Vee on 37th St in NW Rochester.
Century Hills is very conveniently located to downtown. At this time, it has one bus stop at Viola Rd NE and Cassidy Drive NE. Northeast Rochester is our smallest quadrant in regards to the number of houses. It is mostly residential with small commercial businesses to support the residents. It is a bear to get from this pocket of Rochester to far northwest Rochester but that will improve as the current project to connect West Circle Drive to East Circle Drive progresses.
