We're not really planning to move within Lexington, but we sort of wish we had a smaller house, less expensive, and a larger lot. I just saw three homes in Brookhaven/Landover that fit the bill, in the lower 200Ks with lots around 12000-15000 square feet (we currently have 9000). But I'm wondering why the prices are so low for the great zip code and location and lot size. I couldn't figure out the schools based on the listings (I know how to figure out the schools, but just haven't looked them up yet), but it didn't look like the school pyramids were ideal; they sort of seemed mixed. Is that the downside? I wouldn't call the prices astonishingly low, but just lower than I would expect.

I also know someone in Landover who had some bad things to say, but I can't remember what exactly.

So just out of curiosity, what is the thinking on this neighborhood?

I haven't seen the ones you mentioned, but it could be that they are just really outdated. There are still a handful of little old ladies who have been in their houses for 50 years out there. You gotta watch too for realtors that mislabel neighborhoods. From Brookhaven down to Glendover, that whole area has no defined boundaries, so a house that is in Zandale may get tagged as Brookhaven, etc.

You aren't talking about the one on Robin Road are you? The one with no garage and a basement? If so, that is a short sale.

I jotted down 3 addresses yesterday when I was just browsing zillow:

3401 Hunter (touted as "updated" looks nice)
271 Malabu
787 Sherwood

I don't know those sub-neighborhoods very well, so I don't know the distinction between Brookhaven vs. Zandale and what that means. At this point, my ideal would be near the Arboretum, large lot, large flat backyard, size not that big of a deal. But still no real plans to move, I'm just saying ...

Some of the school triangles don't seem like exactly what I want even though Glendover E. is wonderful, and I've heard good things about Landover, but these aren't getting Morton, etc. You know what I mean ...
