Betton Hills is one of Tallahassee’s oldest and finest neighborhoods. Nestled close to downtown, between Thomasville and Centerville roads, the single family residences in this neighborhood blend design from old and new Tallahassee. Dramatic changes in elevation and lush vegetation add to the stunning beauty of vistas throughout the neighborhood. Betton Hills is also adorned with four lovely parks, Winthrop, Harriman, Chittenden (Bellamy), and McCord. Each park serves the neighborhood in different ways. Winthrop Park is well-equipped with sporting facilities, a fabulous children’s playground, and beautiful rose gardens. Chittenden, McCord and Harriman Parks feature walking trails, ponds, flower gardens or wildlife habitats. The character of this residential area is considered a valuable resource that is well respected in the Tallahassee community. In 2009, Betton Hills was a City of Tallahassee Neighborhood of the Year!!!

What was once a 420 acre, 1850s hunting and farming plantation, was transformed 100 years later in to a family neighborhood, designed to compliment the patriarch oaks, gracious magnolias, towering pines, rolling hills, streams and pond that graced its meandering landscape. It was named Waverly Hills, with streets titled after Sir Walter Scott novels. Twelve of the original homes were showcased in Tallahassee’s first ever Parade of Homes. Today, Waverly Hills is comprised of over 400 homes, and is one Tallahassee’s most stable, picturesque, and greatly desired neighborhoods. It’s close proximity to downtown Tallahassee, Market Square, and easy access to I10, Thomasville Rd, Meridian Road, Capital Circle & Blairstone Expressway, offer a central location from which to reach work, shopping and leisure locations with ease. Zoned for some of the area’s best schools, and with an active neighborhood association arranging activities for young and old alike, Waverly Hills is the perfect place to reside.
