NEWS & VIEWS

Just in time for the winter cold, the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP) recently replaced 26 space heating and cooling systems (HVAC) at Monticello Vista and Virnita Courts in the City of Charlottesville. Replacing the apartment building systems will not only save the residents money on their individual energy bills but will also alleviate the need for a large investment by Piedmont Housing Alliance in the near future, as the systems were coming up for replacement soon. “This was a great opportunity for LEAP to help some of Piedmont Housing Alliance’s low- and fixed-income residents reduce their energy bills by installing more energy-efficient HVAC systems,” stated Chris Meyer, LEAP’s Executive Director. “We were able to update the systems thanks to $225,000 of additional funding under one of Dominion Energy Virginia’s mandated low-income energy-efficiency programs,” continued Meyer.

The 16-SEER replacement heat pump systems are estimated to save residents 10-20 percent on their energy use and will function for both heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. Heat pumps use electricity and refrigerant to move heat from one location to another, operating by extracting heat from the outside air and transferring it to refrigeration coolant— the coolant is then compressed, which increases the temperature inside your home. Heat pumps are significantly more efficient than other electric heat options, which often resort to resistance heating, not unlike a toaster oven. To cool a home, the process is reversed, transferring heat out of your home and returning cool air inside. Virnita Court, built in 1966, is in central Charlottesville, serving families with incomes as low as 40 percent AMI, including families on housing choice vouchers. Monticello Vista Apartments is a re-purposed textile factory, originally constructed in 1924. With apartments ranging from efficiencies to 3-bedroom, the community serves extremely low-income individuals and families. LEAP supplied Monticello Vista with 12 HVAC units, Virnita Court with 14 units, and provided the mainte-

The Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit headquartered in Charlottesville, VA. As a trusted nonprofit, LEAP delivers direct education and services for improved energy performance that address climate change; create cost savings for families and businesses; enable healthier, safer, and more durable buildings; and bolster local jobs and economic growth. About Piedmont Housing Alliance. Founded in 1983, Piedmont Housing Alliance is the largest affordable housing organization in the Charlottesville, VA area.

nance staff at both properties with HVAC installation training. “The replacement of older HVAC equipment with new high-efficiency ones provides direct benefit to the residents, increasing indoor air quality and reducing utility costs. It indirectly helps the property overall, by removing the cost burden of replacement and allowing maintenance dollars to be stretched for other uses,” shared Sunshine Mathon, Piedmont Housing Alliance’s Executive Director. LEAP wants to remind everyone that an efficient HVAC system is important to keep your home comfortable while reducing energy usage. While HVAC systems can be expensive to replace ($8,000-$15,000) depending on the size of the home, properly insulating and air sealing your home are normally the most cost-effective steps a homeowner can take to increase comfort and reduce energy usage. Prior to replacing the HVAC systems at Monticello Vista and Virnita Courts, LEAP utilized a different funding source to insulate and air seal units a few years ago.

ou expect to hear local real estate agents and the county tourism manager rave about how great Orange County is. After all, it’s their job to advocate for the hometown. But when the data back up that enthusiasm, it’s hard not to become part of the cheering squad. Real estate sales are surging in Orange County. Purchases are up more than 20 percent this year, which is impressive considering they are battling the same low inventory of available homes that plagues the rest of Central Virginia. A more typical increase for the county is less than five percent. Figuring out what’s behind the ramped-up enthusiasm for Orange County is not hard. Tremendous outdoor experiences, historic attractions, the up-and-coming towns of Orange and Gordonsville, and the growing demand in Lake of the Woods, which alone is enough to draw a crowd. Layer on the desirable location and it’s clear there is a movement underway.

Prime Location Draw a line from Washington to Richmond to Charlottesville and back to Washington. Wait, the lines are already drawn—I-95, I-64 and U.S. Route 29. Smack dab in the middle lies Orange County, just far enough removed from the urbanization and traffic to provide a retreat from the chaos. U.S. Route 15 runs north to south through the town of Orange making it easy to hop on any of the major highways

ORANGE COUNTY Close-In with a

to access the surrounding cities and what they offer. Employment, cultural attractions, airports, and other city amenities abound. From Gordonsville and Barboursville, Charlottesville is less than a 20-mile drive. Richmond and Washington are each about 70 miles, and Fredericksburg is

only 20 miles from the eastern side of Orange County. In 2022, construction will begin on one of the country’s largest Veterans Administration outpatient clinics in Fredericksburg. This VA Health Care Center adds another major employer to those already within commuting distance from the county.

With remote and hybrid work models becoming standard, Orange County’s already prime location is even more desirable. As REALTOR® and Managing Partner with Licata Group Real Estate Advisors, John Licata sees the trend only continuing. “Orange County will continue to benefit from the ability to work from home. Think of all the office workers in Northern Virginia. Strong broadband and internet access here make it easy to transition from the office to home and a lifestyle to love in Orange County.”

Historic, Outdoorsy, and Highly Acclaimed Among all the historic and outdoor attractions in Orange County, four stand out as national or regional treasures. Montpelier, James and Dolley Madison’s former estate, combines an American history museum, a center for constitutional education and engagement, tours, exhibitions, and more than eight miles of walking trails. Highlights of the trails include Montpelier’s OldGrowth Landmark Forest and the Civil War Trail. Historic and outdoorsy in its own right, nearby Grelen combines a 1935 Georgian Revival style home with a farmto-table casual café, garden shop, pickyour-own nursery, event venue, and a 1,000-acre tree nursery. The home and site are on the US national Register of Historic Places. Its five miles of trail connect to Montpelier’s, creating a network of more than 13 miles of beautiful walking trails through historic and natural grounds.

ment to preserve the large-scale estates and grounds and make the most of them for residents and visitors. “You can’t be what you’re not,” says Lori Landes-Carter, Tourism Manager for Orange County. “What we have in Orange County is natural and authentic, borne out of our history. ‘Agritourism’ is all the rage now, and that’s what we have always done best. People come to see our history and how we have retained the rural farms, vineyards, historic sites, and natural areas that make up most of the county. “There has been an incredible resurgence of people wanting to recapture a natural element in their lives. It gained traction a few years ago and has become nearly universal in COVID’s wake. Gardening, farm-to-table, local agricultural experiences like corn mazes and pickyour-own orchards and berry farms, local vineyards, and cideries are all right here.” A local network of residents wants to expand on what’s already here. This Town to Trail network is actively connecting green spaces within Gordonsville in partnership with the Piedmont Environmental Center. Long-term, they are working to build a trail to connect Gordonsville to the Montpelier trail system and it’s Landmark Forest. Few places can lay claim to old-growth forests. Because local leaders and citizens embraced their story and are staying true to it, Orange County can. “Preservation has allowed us to keep our green space.”

On the western edge of Orange County, Barboursville Vineyards is an 18th century estate playing a legendary role in Virginia viticulture, with roots dating back to Jefferson. The estate hosts wine tastings in the Discovery Tasting Room and other historic sites on the grounds. Library 1821 displays historic documents such as a letter from President John Quincy Adams and other artifacts. This Fall’s Sommelier International Wine Competition named Barboursville Vineyards “Winery of the Year.” In an appropriate pairing, the acclaimed Palladio Restaurant, on grounds, serves an Italian fine-dining experience to match the elegant 870-acre estate. Perhaps the best kept secret is The Inn at Willow Grove. Named first in “The Top 15 Resort Hotels in the South by Travel + Leisure Magazine, this restored 1770s plantation and estate is now a five-star boutique luxurious country hotel and spa. The grounds are highlighted by oldgrowth trees and beautifully manicured gardens and surrounded by Virginia farms and vineyards. Dining at the Vintage Restaurant & Pub, immersing in the saltwater pool, and being pampered in the Mill House Spa are guest favorites. Classified as a “world-class escape,” The Inn with its 40-acre grounds is one more star in Orange County’s quiver of expansive historic properties.

Something’s Brewing Here Why would a high-profile national law firm move its entire practice from Alexandria to Orange? And then, what would possess the heads of that law firm to open a coffee kiosk, and eventually a full-service restaurant in Gordonsville? That’s exactly what Nancy Miller did with her late husband, Mike. Practicing law together in Alexandria, they wanted a place in the country. It didn’t take them long to find and fall in love with Orange County, eventually moving their home to near Gordonsville and The Miller Firm to the town of Orange. The full-service restaurant they built, East of Maui Coffee, operates in Gordonsville serving coffee grown on the Millers’ coffee plantation in Maui. Since Mike’s death just a few weeks ago, Nancy reaffirms their decision to move and invest in Orange County. “I love Gordonsville, and so did Mike. And Orange has been a great place for The Miller Firm. We have been just as effective here as we were in D.C. My son-in-law roasts the restaurant’s coffee beans in the old Orange Review Building. Orange and Gordonsville are home now.” Nancy and Mike weren’t the only ones to see the appeal of these two small towns. Seasoned and new entrepreneurs are recognizing the opportunity to be part of something special. Champion Brewing Company owner Hunter Smith partnered with BBQ Exchange owner Craig Hartman to open Champion Ice House in historic Memorial Hall on Main Street in Gordonsville. Less than a mile away, Patch Brewing Company moved into the old VFW space. With outdoor pavilions winterized for the season, Patch offers 14 acres of green space to be enjoyed via walking trails, ball fields, firepits, and covered seating. With these historic gathering spaces coming back to life, and other rehab projects in the works, Gordonsville is being transformed into a vibrant destination. Orange, too, has it’s share of investment taking place. The historic Silk

Mill Building is being repurposed into a thriving marketplace. The former mill, nicknamed the parachute factory for its role in providing silk for parachutes during both world wars, sits on six acres. It is the perfect setting for Iron Pipe Alewerks brewpub. Spoon and Spindle is also under roof offering a fine dining experience for lunch and brunch. Other businesses include the Silk Mill Grille and event planners Madison and Mill. While Gordonsville and Orange have been small and quaint for decades, they are enjoying a serious uptick in activity. New restaurants and breweries are often leading indicators of a coming surge in residential buying.

Concentration in Locust Grove To retain the county’s mostly rural nature, much of the concentrated development is focused in the Locust Grove area in eastern Orange County. The resortstyle private gated community of Lake of the Woods is the largest population center, attracting commuters and vacationers alike.

Licata notes that at the start of COVID, Lake of the Woods was popular for Northern Virginians to have a getaway. “As COVID continues, lots of those buyers are making their escape homes permanent. They see that they don’t need to go to Florida when they can have the best of both worlds here without the travel hassles. Twin Lake Villas is a new 55+ active adult community that Licata says has been selling briskly with 10 to 12 homes per month, in the range of $350,000. Developer D. R. Horton is offering new single family “express homes” in the Wilderness Shores area of Locust Grove, starting at just over $400,000. Licata explains, “Horton is able to offer a quick turnaround time, as little as 90 days, because they put the houses on the market as they are beginning the dry wall process. So very little customization can be done, but it’s a great way for a buyer to get a new home without waiting for a year or two on construction. “These two new developments are helping with the low inventory of existing

homes. Demand in this area is only going to grow. Right now, a waterfront house in Lake of the Woods will cost you $2 million. The community has the infrastructure and location that buyers need, and the amenities and features they want.” Donna Waugh-Robinson, REALTOR® with Jack Samuels Realty agrees. “The high quality of life in Orange County and the ability for many to work from home is enticing. People want to move here and I’m seeing more out of state clients. With that higher demand and the low supply, prices will continue to go up. At the same time, we’re seeing land sales ticking up. But those buyers need to be patient to get through the lengthy building process.” Given all the good that is coalescing here, building or buying an existing home are both good options. For buyers yearning to be immersed in historic and outdoorsy settings, with vibrant small-towns, or resort-style living, Orange County is a great choice.
