Cary Street Road // City of Richmond
Exiting Carytown and heading west, some of Richmond's most compelling residential architecture is on full display. The Cary Street Road corridor, from Windsor Farms to the Huguenot Bridge, is unique to Richmond due to its elegance, scale and grace.
The architecture of the stretch can best be described as "classically varied" with a mix of period design that borrows from many different disciplines. The ages of homes along Cary generally date back into the 1920's - 1940's era with a few notable exceptions. The homes were built for the prosperous families of Richmond that sought more space than the upper and lower Fan provided. Renovations in the corridor are probably more prevalent than additions as the larger nature of the homes dictates upgrading functionality over adding space.
Cary Street, while impressive, also serves as a gateway to the hilly and meandering collection of neighborhoods often referred to as 'South of Cary.' Hillcrest, Wilton Road, Windmere, Lockgreen, Kennondale and Rothesay represent some of the legal descriptions of 'developments' west of Windsor Farms and 'South of Cary.'
The home values are consistently the highest in the Metro.
