ALBEMARLE COUNTY

“I

A Place to Call Home

grew up in Albemarle County,” declares Georgia Lindsey, lifelong county resident and REALTOR®. Lindsey is an Associate Broker with the Nest Realty Group in Charlottesville. “I went to Monticello High School and UVA.” She attended graduate school at the University of Georgia and she and her husband headed back to Virginia. “There has been so much growth since I was little,” she says. “It’s interesting to see how much has changed.” Clearly Lindsey is speaking of relatively recent changes, but Albemarle County has seen many others since it was originally created in 1744 from the western reaches of Goochland County. In 1761, the county was carved up to create Buckingham and Amherst Counties and at the same time, the county seat was relocated to Charlottesville from Scottsville. In 1777, a final division lopped off land to create Fluvanna County. Today, Albemarle County is a top destination for homebuyers.

Why Homebuyers Head to Central Virginia “Even before COVID, I was seeing that people were leaving larger metropolitan areas,” observes REALTOR® Jim McVay, Associate Broker with Roy Wheeler Realty

BY MARILYN PRIBUS

Co. “We are a chosen destination for a lot of people and now with COVID, you have to work remotely anyhow. That brings many people to this area.”

“Some buyers are out-of-towners,” he says, “but at the same time there are local residents looking to upgrade and some looking to downsize.”

What People? Where From?

Why Do They Come?

“Well, I see people coming from the D.C. area, but even as far away as California,” he says. “A fair number are coming because of UVA—as employees—and also we see returning alums and those who attended graduate programs and the JAG School.” The JAG School, or Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School is a graduate-level federal service academy located on the UVA grounds. Accredited by the American Bar Association, it serves all our military service branches.

“It’s really hard to separate Charlottesville and the county,” McVay points out. “Albemarle’s proximity to work and the University in Charlottesville is important. There are two major hospitals and The Children’s Hospital in the UVA Health System is especially remarkable. And there are so many activities.” The area, he says, is often on “Top of” lists. A tennis fan himself, he mentions that a tennis magazine recently listed the area as a top place for tennis. The

region is also recognized for running and for races such as the Charlottesville Marathon. Other recognitions have included a top place to visit in the spring as well as a top place to view fall foliage, a top livable place, a top place to retire, a top college town, a top healthy city and more. Along with this, says McVay, entertainment venues such as UVA’s John Paul Jones Arena, the Sprint Pavilion on the Downtown Mall and the historic Paramount Theater draw surprisingly “big” names from the Dalai Lama to the Rolling Stones. The reason for this, the staff at the Paramount Theater explains, is the proximity to large cities like Washington, Norfolk and even Baltimore and Philadelphia. Although our entertainment venues are smaller than in larger cities, being only a couple hundred miles away makes us a relatively nearby place to perform and thus a profitable little side trip on entertainment schedules. Various popular annual events are also on the calendar and bring visitors from a distance and volunteers from the city and Albemarle County. For example, the Tom Tom Festival & Summit, the Festival of the Book and the Virginia Film Festival are big draws. “It’s all about quality of life,” McVay says. “Education, health care, recreational and social activities, all of it. We aren’t a sleepy little Southern community anymore. As a university town with retirees


What Makes Albemarle a Popular Place to Call Home Many areas of Albemarle County actually have “Charlottesville” as their mailing address and county residents enjoy their proximity to the city’s cultural offerings. Historical sites in the county—like Monticello and Highland—add to the charm and are wonderful places to take visitors. Numerous vineyards, breweries, and cideries also welcome visitors. There is convenient shopping in the county. The new Fifth Street Station complex is home to Wegman’s, movies, restaurants, sporting goods, spa treatments, a walk-in medical clinic, and other facilities. Located just off I-64, it’s especially convenient for the southern portions of the county and areas near the Interstate.

“Homebuyers with children ask about the schools,” says REALTOR® McVay. “Our public schools are very good and we have excellent private schools also.” The county’s 15 elementary schools and five middle schools feed into three high schools—Albemarle, Western Albemarle, and Monticello which have regular sports programs and other extracurricular activities. In addition, four “academies” accept high school students from anywhere in the county. These academies have been designed for students who seek to concentrate in specific fields and include Environmental Studies; Health and Medical Sciences; Information and Communication Technology; and Math, Engineering and Science. There is also a Dual Credit program where any high school or homeschool student can concurrently take classes through Piedmont Virginia Community College at a campus location or online. Students earn credits toward college graduation requirements and since these courses are free in this program, it is an excellent money-saving strategy.

Homebuyers’ Big Question: What about housing? “Generally,” says REALTOR® Lindsey, “Albemarle is more affordable than Charlottesville for similar properties and has a great variety both in price ranges and in the type of property. The lots tend to be more spacious, too.” The reason for this, of course, is that with more than 700 square miles, the county has more open area for development while Charlottesville is more likely to see denser new development in the form of apartments and condos. What kind of properties can be found in Albemarle? Large individual homes with acreage. Older developments with mature trees and landscaping. Spanking new town home developments as well as age-restricted developments for those 55 and older. The latter two typically have clubhouses, pools, and fitness centers. (And no yards to tend.) These days, some developments combine townhomes with single-family or duplex dwellings to maximize greenspace. Golf course properties include Glenmore in the east and Old Trail in the west. Some development is on extra-large lots allowing for barns and pastures—often called horse properties. These often include or are adjacent to horse trails. “Just look at the range in the 84 Albemarle County properties that went under contract in just the first three weeks of 2021,” Lindsey says. “Prices ranged from $133,000 for a centrally located condo to

Residents to the north patronize shops at Hollymead Town Center which is home to Harris Teeter, Wells Fargo, eateries, salons, and shops. The Shops at Stonefield include Trader Joe’s, a number of national businesses, eateries, movie theaters and Costco. Then there are numerous smaller shopping centers, restaurants and shops along Route 29, which is also known by its longtime moniker of Seminole Trail. (Factoid: “Auto trails” were named before they were numbered. In 1928, the Virginia General Assembly gave the Seminole Trail name to the through route from Danville to Warrenton. It was later numbered 29.) With three large regional parks and many smaller neighborhood playgrounds, there’s plenty of chance for recreation. In fact, Albemarle County maintains more than 80 miles of trails in parks and on greenways and what are now dubbed blueways. These are available for walking, running, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, swimming, rafting, and kayaking. Check online for information about nine specific county park trails including printable maps. Four boat launch sites within the county provide river access and there are lakes for canoeing, kayaking, and swimming. For many, the proximity of Shenandoah National Park gives wonderful access to camping, hiking on portions of the Appalachian Trail, or simply enjoying the scenery at the many overlooks of Skyline Drive.

nearly $1.8 million for an estate on close to 75 acres in the northern part of the county. The oldest is a 1792 post-andbeam home with a guest cottage near Scottsville. The newest is a townhome that is still under construction.” In fact, she says, 19 of those 84 contracts are for homes that will be completed in 2021. “This includes at least 11 homes in the Crozet/Old Trail area in the western part of the county” she says, “and there’s lots of construction in new neighborhoods north, south and east of town, too. This really drives home for me (no pun intended!) how building is happening in all areas of the county right now.” She explains that as an area we have limited inventory for people wanting to buy homes here. “We have lots of buyers ready to go,” she says, “so we need builders and building right now. It’s a pretty healthy situation.”

Albemarle County’s Comprehensive Plan The county, she says, is working hard to have a handle on development. “Things are being planned thoughtfully for people who need and want to be in our area for jobs or retirement.” To this end, the Board of Supervisors has developed a Comprehensive Plan, which is a guiding document for longterm plans for land use and resource protection. This plan guides staff, committees and boards and the Board of Supervisors in framing public policies related to private land use and the utili-

zation of resources. It also includes planning for capital improvements such as schools, parks, libraries, and transportation, while guiding environmental and historic resource protection. The county is divided into designated Development Areas which cover about 5 percent of the county and Rural Areas which encompass the remaining 95 percent. The strategy is to focus growth into the Development Areas to create quality

living while avoiding sprawl. In the Rural Areas, the goal is to improve access to services (such as broadband expansion) while protecting the rural way of life. Various areas within the county have individual Community Advisory Committees (CACs) which meet, generally monthly, to provide input and feedback to the county. Each committee has a liaison from the Planning Commission, Board of Supervisors, and County Planning staff.

“Growth will happen,” concludes Lindsey, “and we want it to happen without taking away the things that make our area special.” Lindsey and her family are in Albemarle County to stay. “Our family is here,” she says. “This is what I know. This is what I love. I just want to be here.” Marilyn Pribus and her husband have lived in Albemarle County since 2007 when they moved from California. They live in a singlefamily home in an older development with families of all ages.
