Welcome to the Greenleaf/Rugby/Rose Hill neighborhoods located in the city of Charlottesville!
The bungalows in this suburb were built partly to accommodate the influx of soldiers coming to UVA on the GI Bill after World War II. As such, they represent the best and worst of the ’40s and early ’50s.
Pluses are the solid construction materials: roomy attics, hardwood floors, sturdy beams, plaster walls, good old steam heat from radiators, and manageable lot sizes big enough to allow a little gardening or landscaping, but not so large as to require intensive labor to keep them up.
These neighborhoods are within walking distance of Greenleaf and McIntyre Parks, and very conveniently located close to Rt 29 at Hydrolic Rd, as well as easily accessible to UVA, The Corner, Downtown, and Barracks Road areas. Prices typically range from $200,000-$500,000 in the Greenleaf/Rose Hill areas, and can be multi-millions in the Rugby section.
