Villa Deste Charlotteville Luxury Homes

Villa Deste Charlottesville Homes Recently Sold

Villa Deste consists of 7 homes whose original theme was French country style. Although most homes are luxurious, the location next to I-64 is too noisy.

The original developer went bankrupt in 2008 when the market changed and since then the lots have been selling slowly and purchased by spec builders such as Craig Builders.

My thoughts: 90% of homes are exquisite but the noise from I-64 ruins the idyllic feel. Yes, you may get used to it but you’ll have a tough time reselling these pricey Charlottesville luxury homes. Most people move to Ivy for its beauty and tranquility. I give Villa Deste a 5 out of 10 for Charlottesville luxury neighborhoods to view.
