My thoughts – Although most of the homes are 50 years old, the West Leigh neighborhood is one of my favorites.
I give the West Leigh neighborhood an 8 out of 10. Why not a 10? The homes are old and will need upgrading and repairs (although many have been renovated). And there are no amenities.
But, don’t let that get you down, if you see a home that looks great then purchase it! Home values will only go up and the public schools are the best around.
Thanks for reading along…
I would be thrilled to be your Ivy VA realtor.
