Barbara McMurry

That’s local artist Duffy Dillinger’s response when asked to compare Lake Monticello with other gated communities in Central Virginia.

“There just isn’t the same natural beauty in any of the other gated or golf course communities around here,” says Dillinger. “When we moved from New Jersey in 2018, we knew we wanted to be in the Charlottesville area but didn’t want to pay Charlottesville prices. Lake Monticello was within a 30-minute drive and much more affordable.”

While searching for value, they realized what a gem they found. The natural beauty, the community amenities, and most importantly, the people.

The Basics

On the surface, Lake Monticello resembles other gated communities. It has the requisite golf course, restaurants, and pool, with the added bonus of a lake with more than 22 miles of shoreline.

Built in the late 1960s, the community was originally envisioned as an enclave of summertime vacation homes. Then, Hurricane Camille swept through on August 19, 1969, and topped off the 350-acre lake overnight.

Soon buyers arrived who wanted to stay year-round, effectively making Lake



Monticello a bedroom community of Charlottesville. Only 13 miles away, it retains that status today.

Associate Broker Maggie Gunnels with Gunnels Group Real Estate has called Lake Monticello home for more than 16 years. She says, “Approximately 60 percent of Lake Monticello residents work, and most commute to Charlottesville. We have some commuters driving to the Richmond area too, about an hour away.

“We even have people headed into DC and northern Virginia once or twice a week for work. It’s worth the drive to be able to live here full time.”

Vicki Wilson, Principal Broker/Owner of Monticello Country Real Estate, Inc., reports that the lake’s fiber optic network serves the work-from-home crowd very well. “It allows workers to enjoy this

lifestyle and only occasionally show up at the office, if at all.”

Resort-like Amenities

All the amenities do indeed make Lake Monticello worth the commute. With beaches, an 18-hole championship golf course, clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, and sports complex, there is not much that you can’t do at Lake Monticello.

The owners of each residential lot automatically become members of the Lake Monticello Owners’ Association (LMOA). Membership gives owners access to a great slate of activities and amenities including boating and fishing on the lake and access to the marina, boat launches, slips, and racks.

Wilson moved here 25 years ago when her kids were little. She says, “There are so

many things to enjoy at Lake Monticello. I live next to one of the beaches and have my pontoon boat parked at a slip. We can walk down anytime and enjoy it.”

With the extensive shoreline, the lake is a haven for kayakers to explore and anglers to catch largemouth bass, sunfish, perch, and other fish.

Swimmers enjoy five beaches and access to the outdoor pool. Dillinger prefers the lake over laps in the pool. “I swim in the lake all summer for exercise. It’s a great place to swim from early May to late September. And now, when it’s too cold to swim outside, I take an exercise class at Ivy Fitness Center, right outside the gates to Lake Monticello. It’s super convenient.”

Open 24/7, Ivy Fitness gives residents an additional resource to keep them in shape and have convenient access to a workout, coaching, and physical therapy when needed.

Landlubbers have just as much to enjoy as water lovers. Playgrounds, basketball courts, a walking track, and ball fields are sprinkled throughout the grounds.

Nearly every day you can hear the “pop-pop-pop” and “ping-ping-ping” of tennis and pickleball volleys echoing from one of the two court locations, including one under the lights. Groups of juniors, mixed doubles and singles, or the Rusty Racquets keep the courts active year-round.

“You really can’t compare.”

Walkers, with or without a golf club in hand, have lots of options. In addition to the golf course and walking track, there are miles of greenways and walking paths. Jogging, leisurely ambling, or cycling through the quiet, mostly 25-mile-perhour community streets are other ways residents enjoy a daily dose of outdoor exercise, and a chance to breathe in trees.

Besides all the action-oriented amenities, there are two clubhouses for public and private events, meetings, and social get-togethers. Dining at The Lakeside Restaurant or The Pub Restaurant and Bar rounds out the slate of amenities and makes Lake Monticello living delightful all year long.

Patsy Strong, Principal Broker at Strong Team, Realtors, says, “What sets Lake Monticello apart from other communities are its impressive amenities and special year-round events. I purchased my first home in Lake Monticello back in 1996. I’ve owned three homes here since then. I chose to move here for the same reasons buyers purchase homes here today—wonderful amenities and a warm, supportive community atmosphere. No other community can compare!”

People Power

The trees, lake, pool, golf course, and ball courts are just the backdrop for the Lake Monticello quality of life. What takes lake life to the next level are the people.

Dillinger says, “I’ve never had so many friends in all my life! The people I have met here are super friendly and kind. I know there are all sorts of groups to be involved with, but it’s not just the social clubs.

“For me, it started by meeting a neighbor on a walk. Then she introduced me to another, and another. Yes, I’m part of the wine tasters club, but life here is so much more than that.”

The Lake Monticello community has cracked the code on resident affinity groups. The Newcomers and Old Friends Club helps new and old become fast friends based on common interests. Wine tasters, craft beer lovers, history buffs, hikers…imagine an interest group, and it either already exists or can be started up if there’s more than one person interested.

In addition to the self-run resident interest groups, the LMOA provides a great deal of support to uphold and strengthen bonds that develop between neighbors through a robust activities program. Merieke Henry, LMOA Communications Director, keeps residents informed of all the fun ways to participate in community life at Lake Monticello.

Recent highlights have been a community bonfire for neighbors and friends on the Main Beach and a sleigh full of winter holiday events throughout December. Upcoming is a New Year’s Eve party and dance, Italian nights at the Lakeside Restaurant, trivia nights at The Pub…the list goes on and on.

The combined efforts of the Newcomers and Old Friends Club and the LMOA make getting out and about with neighbors easy. There are lots of groups to explore or events to participate in without any ongoing pressure. This com-

bination of always feeling invited but not obligated makes for a high level of participation and a strong social network among residents of all ages.

Still a Strong Market

There are just over 4,600 lots in Lake Monticello. More than 4,300 have completed homes on them and there are 10 condos adjacent to the marina. The community has more than 12,000 residents, making it the most populated community in Fluvanna County.

“I’ve always felt that purchasing a home in Lake Monticello is a wise investment. That’s why I purchased here years ago before I became a REALTOR®,” says Strong. “The community is beautifully maintained, and the Board continues to update and improve its amenities year after year.”

Whereas some resort-style communities allow short-term rentals, at Lake Monticello you know who your neighbors are, and they don’t change every week. Wilson says, “Weekly or vacation

rentals are not permitted. Some people do buy second homes with the plan to eventually retire here, but there’s no Airbnb allowed.” That can make a big difference.

Right now, “There are 18 existing homes on the market,” says Gunnels, “and six homes are under construction. That’s up a bit from where it has been all year.

“Days on market are also rising. But if a home is priced right, it will still go very quickly, even with these higher interest rates. After some sticker shock, buyers are getting used to interest rates of six percent and up. They are coming to realize that the rates under four were an anomaly.”

Strong agrees. “The market is definitely changing, and we are already sensing the slowdown. With this said, however, early to mid-2023 will still be a great time for sellers and buyers to come together at Lake Monticello.”

As is true for most lake communities, waterfront homes are the hottest

commodities. There are 511 waterfront homes on Lake Monticello, with very few for sale at any one time. Wilson says, “We are continuing to see multiple offers on any waterfront homes that come to market, a mix of cash buyers and those seeking financing.”

Out-of-area buyers search for waterfront properties or a waterfront community and stumble upon Lake Monticello. So, it’s likely that homes in Lake Monticello will continue to see interest outstripping inventory, especially for waterfront homes. Wilson says, “We are no longer Central Virginia’s bestkept secret.

“The market here is still strong. Interest rates are high from where they were last spring and buyers are holding off somewhat, though rates did drop a bit this past week.

“What’s encouraging is that lenders are getting creative in offering new programs. My preferred lender has a temporary buydown that uses a fraction of the seller’s closing costs to buy down the interest rate, effectively lowering the borrower’s payment for two years.

“Carl Heimlich’s company, GO Mortgage, is partnering with us at Monticello Country Real Estate to offer First Responders a free home warranty, discounted closing costs, and discounted settlement fees.”

Buyers shouldn’t let an elevated mortgage interest rate scare them out of the market. A good REALTOR® and lender can sometimes find creative solutions to keep monthly payments low even while mortgage rates are high.

Gunnels agrees. “This Lake Monticello market can work for all types of buyers—first-time home buyers, people moving up to more space, empty nesters, retirees.”

For buyers who want some of what Lake Monticello offers and are unable to wait for the right home to come on the market, there are some options. Associate memberships at Lake Monticello for people living outside the gate offer some of the social and golf amenities that homeowners inside the gate enjoy.

Ryan Homes recently completed more than 100 new one-level living homes at Village Oaks. It sold out quickly, and a handful of additional new neighborhoods are at some stage of review in the immediate vicinity. While those developments may be able to capitalize on greater affordability than can be had in Charlottesville, the draw isn’t nearly as powerful without all the resort-style benefits that come with full Lake Monticello membership.

One after another, Lake Monticello residents say that what initially attracted them to the community was the affordability. Ask Dillinger or Henry or their neighbor, tri-athlete Len Toledo.

But after becoming part of the community, they realized what they had uncovered. The “summer camp” style amenities and activities that deliver all year long. The trees and natural beauty are built into the community. And finally, the friendships and connections contribute so much to the rich quality of life.

Together it makes for a gated community unlike any other in Central Virginia.
