In love with living in the city, but looking for a little more space than offered closer in? You will find yourself wondering across 1-95, better known as the Powhite Parkway, where the lots are larger with more green space, but still with that urban feel you desire.
The West End of Richmond features several neighborhoods with blurred lines as you travel the streets: Sauer’s Garden, Monument Avenue Park, Colonial Place, Malvern Gardens, Stonewall Court, Willow Lawn, Westhampton, and those are north of Cary Street. Cross Cary for Windsor Farms, Lockgreen and Near West End. Continue westward and you are in Three Chopt, where Henrico County weaves with Richmond City.
Each of these unique areas offer lovely older homes, with a spattering of reconstruction, mostly immaculately kept, reflecting the West Richmond pride felt throughout the neighborhoods as you walk on the sidewalks and admire the curb appeal. And if the houses aren’t enough, you’re within walking distance of shops and restaurants in all directions. Whether you want to walk to Carytown, Willow Lawn or The Avenues on Libbie between Grove and Patterson, you will have plenty of local options for all of your shopping needs.
This area is easy to navigate cycling or running, as you will see tons of bikers and runners taking advantage of the space! Libbie and Grove is a gathering place for activity enthusiasts to meet with easy access to the James River through the neighborhoods surrounding the County Club of Virginia and winding through the University of Richmond campus.
Real Estate goes quickly in these neighborhoods, so you want to be prepared to make an offer and armed with a realtor and a mortgage lender before you even take a look. This area is highly desirable, as you can imagine from the description!
