Homes with Character and Charm in Upper Arlington
If you care about being in the most prestigious part of town, where history and community mean something, you need to seriously consider Upper Arlington. Thanks to tasteful renovations, you can find restored homes from the early 1900's with many of the bells and whistles you desire but often at a higher price than a suburban home. To select Upper Arlington, you need to value the history of Columbus, OSU, the proximity to Downtown and the Short North and all Columbus has to offer.
Education is a priority in UA and their schools always rank among the highest in the state, rivaling a couple of the distant suburbs. But those in UA cherish the "small town" atmosphere from days gone by. Just driving through, you will notice there are beautiful parks which are always meticulously maintained, the charm of sidewalks and mature trees shading the quiet streets and charming street lamps, circa 1940.
