Waverly Hills Neighborhood Hosts Large Homes at Affordable Prices
(page 1 of 2)
Waverly Pond is a popular gathering spot for community events.
Picturesque brick homes situated among rolling hills, bucolic ponds and streams, and sprawling live oaks draped with Spanish moss lend the Waverly Hills neighborhood an abundance of Southern charm.
The onetime hunting and fishing plantation has evolved over the past half-century to become a highly sought-after community of more than 400 homes. Indeed, Waverly was named Tallahassee’s best large neighborhood of the year in both 2009 and 2014.
Named after the novels written by Sir Walter Scott, the Waverly Hills neighborhood is tucked off Thomasville Road, across from Tallahassee Nurseries. It’s convenient to Interstate 10, Market Square, downtown Tallahassee and Midtown. In addition, Waverly Hills lies within some of the area’s top school zones.
For longtime resident Barbara Davidson, the Waverly Hills community is much more than convenience, scenery and awards. She has served as both president and secretary of the volunteer homeowners association board.
“Waverly is such a desirable neighborhood. I am proud of Waverly and would not want to live anywhere else,” she says.
As a Realtor, Davidson knows what homeowners want in a community. Waverly Hills has no homeowners association fees; instead, the association asks for donations every three years and always receives more than enough to support its projects. That’s impressive, because the board is active with plenty of initiatives.
