Glenburie in Westhampton

A captivating “village” neighborhood of quiet, tree-lined streets and English-inspired brick and slate residences. Glenburnie was constructed primarily in the 1930’s-1950’s. Its brick and slate architecture is solid and enduring, and its quiet tree-lined streets invite evening strolls and spontaneous neighborly roadside visits. Several areas were set aside by original developers as parks for residents and remain popular spots for children and dogs alike. Residents of Glenburnie tend to range from older people who have lived in the neighborhood for many years and value its peace and convenience to younger singles and families who find its location in the Near West End close not only to shopping, dining, entertainment and jobs but as well to a variety of excellent educational options, both public and private, for their children.

Glenburnie’s location makes it particularly desirable to urban professionals: it is within minutes of the interstate and parkway system, and Downtown Richmond is fewer than ten minutes away via the Downtown Expressway. Boutique shopping in Carytown, the Fan and Museum Districts, and the Shops at Libbie and Grove are within minutes, and museums and educational facilities, including the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, the University of Richmond, and Virginia Commonwealth University are readily accessible.

Properties in Glenburnie typically range from a low in the mid-$300,000’s to upwards of $500,000. Demand for these properties has been particularly high in recent years and supplies low, and multiple offers on newly-listed properties are not uncommon.
