"Wellesley" is an exceptionally well planned community with over 750 single family homes nestled in the heart of short pump. Prices range from $190,000 to over $600,000 and are 1,200 SF to over 5,000. "Wellesley" is made up of 17 separate neighborhoods and the homes were quality built by such well respected builders as "Boone, Boone, Loeb and Petit" "Austin Davidson" and many others between 1988 and 1994. This community is within a 5 minute walk to "short pump town center" but is well insulated from the busy broad street area that features hundreds of shops and restaurants. Buying a home in "Wellesley" affords the luxury of miles of walking and jogging trails, 3 pools (home to the "Wellesley Whitecaps" swim team), 4 tennis courts and its own gym—all of this for "Wellesley" residents and their guests. The in demand schools are Nuckols Farm and Short Pump Elementary, Pocahontas Middle and Godwin High School.
The popular "Foxhall" subdivision has many amenities including pools and tennis along with a beautiful setting that runs along an environmentally protected tract of land on the west side of "Foxhall". Made up of mostly traditional colonials and transitional style homes, prices have recently run from $400,000 to as much $1,200,000 in the newer section of "Foxhall". Most of the lots are in cul de sacs making it a terrific place for the kids. Manicured landscaping, which is included in the homeowners association dues, makes "Foxhall" consistently well kept and a pleasant area to live. Close to restaurants and shopping in short pump keeps "Foxhall" very popular. A pleasant country drive through Goochland county is only a mile away and major arteries of 64,295 and 288 are within minutes. "Causeway Drive" runs through the middle of "Foxhall" and gives residents easy access to both broad street to the north and to Lauderdale Drive.
"The colonies at Wilde Lake" subdivision is very popular and features elegant colonial style homes in a park like setting.

Trees, well manicured lawns and the beautiful "Wilde Lake" set this community aside as a unique area to live.

The "colonies" connects to "Foxhall” subdivision with the "causeway" running through for access to major highways and short pump shopping.
