About the Area
Wyndham is about 99 miles south of Washington, DC. The community lies west of Williamsburg, east of Charlottesville, and only a few miles west of Richmond’s central business district. The main geographic feature of the area would have to be the James River, which winds through the suburbs and part of Richmond. As a newer community, most of the architecture is modern, though there may be a few buildings with colonial or Federal-style features that mimic some of the historic buildings in Richmond.
The community stands out from other places in Virginia in several ways. What should stand out first is the size of the homes, which mostly have three to five bedrooms. The large homes hint at the neighborhood’s affluence. As noted below, the household income is very high, higher in fact than 97% of neighborhoods in the United States. This affluence also makes for one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the state, home to several affluent Washington, DC suburbs.
More Greek speakers live here than in any other neighborhood in Virginia. While only 3.4% of the population speaks Greek as a first language, which is a huge percentage relative to most other neighborhoods in the country. Tiny, but unusually large numbers of residents hail from Greek and Austria.
