The original plantation house and the hotel that once sat on the grounds were torn down, and in their place, single-family homes were constructed. These homes are still in place today, with their varying sizes and charming elements of years past, though there are newer construction properties dotting the landscape, as well. Single-family properties mingle with student housing and single and detached rental properties, making for an eclectic neighborhood environment.
And the amenities within Fry’s Spring, they are just as enticing as the properties. There is Azalea Park, which offers playground equipment and easy connection with the Rivanna Trail – a 20-mile hiking trail through the urban wilderness of Charlottesville. Sports lovers appreciate the ability to walk to UVA football games at Scott Stadium. Parents with young children can walk their children to the local schools, and college students are just minutes from campus. There are charming churches in Fry’s Spring, as well as great restaurants. The pinnacle of Fry’s Spring is The Fry’s Spring Beach Beach Club, a hub for warm-weather fun since the 1920s. Here residents have access to a pool, tennis and volleyball courts, an open grassy field, a historic ballroom and more. Near everything residents need, yet an environment all of its own, Fry’s Spring offers some of the best of Charlottesville.
