Community of the Week: Westerleigh by Main Street Homes

NewHomeSource has selected Westerleigh by Main Street as a Community of the Week for it’s master-planned community that boasts a spirit of closeness amongst neighbors.

Picture it: It’s a Saturday afternoon and you are taking a morning stroll around the neighborhood. As you walk down a wooded path, you pass a young jogger, a happy family with two young children, and an older couple who’s staying active. Now imagine that you know all these folks and the many others you pass on the trail.

That’s what you can get at Westerleigh, a new-home community located in Wester Chesterfield in Moseley, Va. Close to Arlington, the community is great for commuters, yet far away enough from downtown to be a peaceful community where residents can get to know each other.

“There are sidewalks, which give residents are having a safe place to run or go for a walk with your dogs,” says Trish Lawman, marketing coordinator for Main Street Homes Virginia. “Having a social community that plans the social events gives something to buyers who want a traditional community feel where they know their neighbors.”

The master-planned community will feature 500 single-family homes with elevations ranging from Craftsman style to traditional style, says Lawman. And, though this community is quite large, Main Street Homes has created a community with a great neighborly feel.

Amenities range from hike and bike trails to a community pool with splash pads for the kiddos and a large waterslide. Such amenities, Lawman says, provide ample opportunities for residents to socialize and get to know one another.

“People want to enjoy things within walking distance, they want activities where they can put their kids in a wagon or a stroller and be close to home,” Lawman says. “The trend is you have the same people at the pool, so you can create friendships.

“With everybody’s busy lifestyle these days,” says Lawman, “they are always on the go, so to have a real human connection with others is important to people today.”
Other amenities include a youth swim team and a park with a playground and pavilion, as well as proximity to highly-rated elementary and high schools.
