Recently, my husband and I went to tour The Grove at Swift Creek. Since we haven’t lived in the area long, it is neat to be able to check out places we wouldn’t normally, so that I can get a better feel from the Richmond area. Plus, I want to be able to recommend the best places and the best apartments in Richmond to you all!
This. Place. Is. Fabulous.
And no, I am not just saying that.
I toured the entire space and made my own judgements on the units, the grounds, the community, and the staff to share my honest opinions on them.
Disclosure: NTS Development is sponsoring this post, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Best Apartments in Richmond
The units range from 1-3 bedrooms, at a rate of about $1000-$1600. These apartments are SPACIOUS, and the rate per square foot is really competitive for other Richmond apartments in the area.
The entire community is gated, and is equipped with a ton of amenities. From the gorgeous pool area, to two different grilling areas, lots of outdoor space, and a GORGEOUS clubhouse, they really are an “A” apartment community.
The pool area was (for obvious reasons) my favorite. How beautiful is this?
I 😍 Amenities! Gym, Business Center, Cafe’ & Cookies!
Their fitness center is also full of some great machines, and free weights, and was kept up extremely well.
It has high end equipment, and pretty much anything you would need for a solid workout. Not to mention, there is an area right next door, called the Cyber Cafe, where you can get some sparkling water, or Starbucks drinks after your workout is complete.
All of the units come with a full size washer and dryer, which is honestly a deal breaker for me in homes, so this is a win! I also love the space of the dining area, and the kitchen flows through from that, to a smaller bistro table spot, which is perfect for a small table, shelving, or a wine fridge 🙂
The apartments have really been done well, with white-on-white appliances, walk-in closets, and really nice layouts.
Bonus, the staff is the best! All of the managers are very friendly and they have an emergency 24 hour maintenance (who also happen to be super funny). Everyone on staff is sure to give the residents the feeling like they are a part of a community.
There are also a lot of great things close to the community, without it being too close. Target, Kohl’s, T.J. Maxx, Men’s Warehouse, Old Navy, Stein Mart, and Ulta are all located at the Commonwealth Center which is within a few minutes of the area.
Get yourself some post-workout snacks in the club house…
which is my preference 🙂
Love The Interior of These Apartments
After viewing this complex, with all of its amenities, the excellent staff, and the great community feel, it is easy to rank this as one of the best apartments in Richmond and the Midlothian area.
If you live in the area, and are interested in taking a tour, you can contact them on their website here.
If you decide you love it, and are signing a lease, don’t forget to mention Motherhood and Merlot and they will give you $200 off your first full months rent!
*Cheers to finding your home-sweet-home in one of the best apartments in Richmond
