A look at three Charlottesville neighborhoods
â€¢ Keswick Estate. Keswick is a historic district just east of downtown and close to Monticello. The biggest draw is Keswick Hall, a 600-acre gated community that is home to the Keswick Club with an Arnold Palmer-designed golf course, an Orient Express hotel, and the Estates at Keswick Hall, 124 home sites ranging from 2 to 8 acres. The first two phases have been built, and the third and final phase includes 39 sites with Robert A.M. Stern designs available. Lots start at $345,000, with existing residences from $900,000 to nearly $5 million.
â€¢ Downtown. Anchored by a large pedestrian mall and walking distance of the University of Virginia, downtown is suddenly hot, with many new condos to choose from. “New condos are attracting a demographic looking to spend under $500,000,” Mailloux says. “You could be in a two-bedroom condo, and walk to both downtown and UVA, for $250,000 to $300,000. The Gleason is a new building offering condos from $300,000 to $800,000.”
â€¢ Ednam. “This is probably the most popular second-home area right now, with everything from condos and townhomes to detached single family homes,” says Mailloux. Located just west of downtown, it is a large, non-gated master-planned community that is completely built-out and well-established. One appeal for second-home buyers is that maintenance fees include “everything down to the landscaping and lawn care,” with about 150 houses and condos from $500,000 to $1.2 million.
Some of the Downtown Condos are selling, some are being re-designed and relaunched and some condos like The Gleason are nearing completion. It’s always amazing to read stories about Charlottesville sound like a theme park.
