If an older neighborhood filled with grand old houses, shady trees and blooming floral medians sounds like your idea of the perfect place to live, Victorian Village is sure to make you feel at home. A place like this could be tailor-made for those who value history and cherish the traditional American way of life.
Most of the homes in this navigable neighborhood radiate the grace and charm of an earlier time, and some have achieved landmark status. Many homeowners have split their mansions into rental apartments, and a smattering of condominiums and townhouses adds variety to the living options.
Getting Around in Victorian Village
Residents who generally prefer to leave their cars at home appreciate the fact that Victorian Village ranks seventh on the list of Columbus’s most-walkable neighborhoods. When visiting its generous selection of movie theaters, coffee shops, groceries, restaurants and bars, residents routinely travel on foot. Biking is equally easy, and Victorian Village’s public transportation system is more than adequate for those who would rather leave the driving to someone else.
Victorian Village Schools
Only one educational institution, the highly rated Indianola Informal K-8 School, exists within the boundaries of Victorian Village. Admission is through a lottery system, and children unable to gain entrance can enroll at nearby district or private schools. Most older students attend Centennial High School in northwestern Columbus.
The area’s educational standards are generally high. Forty-four percent of Victorian Village youngsters complete a bachelor’s degree, and a full 34 percent go on to earn their master’s.
Real Estate Available for Sale
As one of the more established areas in the downtown Columbus area, there are plenty of options to choose from. There are plenty of renovated, Victorian homes, new condominiums, and new build homes.
Having Fun in Victorian Village
When not enjoying the great outdoors at bucolic Goodale Park, Victorian Village residents can attend concerts and theatrical performances at one of two nearby theaters or hop over to Nationwide Arena to take in a Blue Jackets hockey game. Art lovers can enjoy a once-monthly evening of late-night gallery hopping on streets filled with open-air musicians, and few residents will willingly miss the off-the-wall lunacy and general disorganization of Columbus’s Fourth of July Doo-Dah parade.
