Currently, Good Neighbor Village has 43.5 acres of land, most of which has been preserved and allocated for our future expansion. Our property is conveniently located near downtown Richmond, the Medical College of Virginia, and Richmond International Airport.
Our facilities include three cottages with the ability to house 20 full-time residents and two respite residents. Our first cottage, Founders Cottage
, was built in 1992 by the Richmond Home Builders Association. It was originally designed as a four bedroom, two bath home with a room for respite residents, a staff bedroom, a large kitchen and living area. Later, an additional two bedrooms and another bath were added to allow a total of six residents.
Our second cottage, Remington Cottage
, was completed in 1999. The Remington Cottage features the same amenities as the Founders Cottage with the addition of a front porch, activities room, staff office and a large rear deck.
In 2003, we added our third cottage, The Anne Carter Robins Cottage
. Each of the cottages at Good Neighbor Village is a home to those who live there. Residents are able to decorate and furnish their own bedrooms as they wish. The large living and kitchen areas allow for family-type activities and encourage social interaction. The residents assist with light chores, such as house cleaning or meal preparation, on a rotating basis.
The additional acreage owned by Good Neighbor Village has been allocated for a new and enhanced Master Plan, which includes nine residential cottages as well as administrative and recreational facilities. We look forward to expanding our facilities in the future, thanks to the generous support of our donors.
