Living at it’s finest!
Founded in 1837, New Albany began as a small farming village just 20 minutes northeast of Columbus. In the 1980’s, Columbus native and CEO of Limited Brands, Les Wexner, began purchasing parcels of land in and around the village. His vision was to create a thriving community that upheld the elegant style and close-knit feel of a small rural town, while offering all the conveniences of a trendy suburban city. Les achieved this vision by designing inter-connected neighborhoods of sophisticated Georgian-style homes that reflected high standards of architectural design and quality finishes.
The careful planning of this community has resulted in a balance of residential, commercial, and recreational land use. Hundreds of acres of land were preserved for neighborhood green spaces. Lakes, ponds and heavily wooded areas were strategically placed, and miles of walking paths were constructed to tie it all together.
New Albany offers outstanding community opportunities and world-class recreational facilities. The New Albany Country Club’s 27-hole golf course was designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus and offers a great venue for improving your golf handicap as well as a state of the art clubhouse. Other popular destinations include the country club’s bath and tennis club, as well as the Community Health and Wellness Center. New Albany parents take comfort in knowing their children can safely traverse the extensive walking paths to access the; school campus, community pool, library, and friends in nearby neighborhoods. Residents also enjoy the 135 acres of New Albany parkland, including; lighted baseball and softball diamonds, full and junior-sized soccer fields, tennis courts, and playgrounds. Many residents participate in neighborhood groups supporting social and civic organizations, as well as charity and volunteer work.
All the serenity found within New Albany can sometimes make you forget that you are just 15 minutes away from the metropolis of downtown Columbus and all the city has to offer. For those who consider New Albany their second home, a 15 minute drive will provide you instant access to the Columbus International Airport.
