Location: off of Old Lynchburg Road just south of the city of Charlottesville over I-64. 3 miles to the University of Virginia and 9 mins to UVA Hospital. 5 mins to 5th Street Station (Wegman’s), and 2.5 miles to I-64 on/off ramp.
Directions: From I-64 Street Exit take Old Lynchburg Rd south past Mosby Mountain to Whittington on right.
My thoughts – 10 years ago, Old Lynchburg Rd was not a luxurious place to live. But since the Mosby Mountain neighborhood was developed property values have changed for the better. I like Whittington’s layout but I wish there were more amenities for the price the homes. Kids need to have fun and there needs to be a pool or tennis court. I give Whittington a 7 out of 10. Why only a 7? There are some neighborhoods nearby that get a lot of police calls. I personally think the homes are over-priced plus Stanley Martin gets in and then they leave. I also don’t like living south of the city near the I-64 interstate. And finally their tiny pond just doesn’t cut it with me. Glenmore and Old Trail are nicer and way more fun.
Note: Albemarle County Police headquarters is located nearby.
