Redfields is convenient to UVA, UVA hospital with easy I-64 access.
The new 5th Street Station is just across I-64 where you have Wegman’s, Dick’s, restaurants, a movie theater, and a lot more.
Note – While there is easy access to I-64, there is a road that goes under I-64 to get to UVA and UVA Hospital without having to get on the interstate.
There are many nurses and young doctors living here.
My thoughts: I give Redfields an 8 out of 10.
Why not a 10?
Because you can hear I-64 and in the nearby vicinity there loom some less-than-desirable neighborhoods.
Now before you panic, know that the Albemarle County Police Dept is VERY nearby and is considered a wonderful place to raise your children.
So, do your own due diligence by contacting them.
Thanks for reading along…
I would be honored to be your Charlottesville realtor.
