Storybook Crozet: Living the Good Life

FEATURE

BY CARLA HUCKABEE

“I

t’s autumn in cozy, idyllic Crozet, Virginia—a time for golden days, crisp nights… and murder.” So opens Book 16 of The New York Times bestselling Mrs. Murphy Mystery series by Afton’s acclaimed author, Rita Mae Brown. Crozet is the perfect setting for a series spanning decades. Fortunately, reallife murders are rare and none of them have been solved by Brown’s “tiger cat born somewhere in Albemarle County.” Crozet’s story is the evolution of a community that grew up in the afternoon shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Twelve miles west of Charlottesville and 21 miles east of Staunton, Crozet residents enjoy breathtaking views, a compact urban setting rich in comforts and amenities, mostly still surrounded by a bucolic quilt of farmland, vineyards, meadows, and forests. While runaway sprawl is curtailed by Albemarle County’s land use policies, there have been some growing pains to get Crozet where it is today and where it’s headed tomorrow.

THE REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.C-VILLE.COM

Growing, Growing, Grown? Once ancestral lands of the Monacan Indian Nation, this area became part of the Ficklin-Wayland Farm, originally cultivating tobacco before adding fruit orchards and livestock. Wayland lived in the home named Pleasant Green and expanded it to accommodate boarders and travelers along the Three Notched and Buck Mountain Roads bordering his farm. According to historian Phil James’ Secrets of the Blue Ridge, one of those Pleasant Green boarders was Colonel Claudius Crozet, an engineer surveying land for the Blue Ridge Railroad and Tunnel. In 1870 Wayland’s Crossing was renamed Crozet. The Waylands sold parcels from their

estate to develop downtown Crozet’s business district. Today’s Square retains much of its character and charm nearly 150 years later, but the Waylands wouldn’t recognize the rest of Crozet. The appeal of living near the Blue Ridge and Albemarle County’s designation as a growth area has spurred tremendous expansion. In 2000, Crozet’s population hovered around 3,000. And by 2022, it had reached 9,956. Growth will continue, and many residents worry about losing Crozet’s small-town vibe. Perhaps they identify with Rita Mae Brown’s narrator, seeing the influx of new residents as “… the diamond-encrusted ‘come-here’ set who has descended on Crozet with plenty of wealth and no feeling for country ways.” But the purpose of the Crozet Master Plan is to encourage density to efficiently deliver services and infrastructure, such as the Crozet Library, the Downtown Crozet streetscape project, and investments in The Square, and community parks. REALTOR® David Farrell, with Mountain Area Nest Realty, understands how long-time residents feel. “It’s hard to find a place you love and watch it change. But people need great places to live, and this is one of them. It’s not realistic for recent newcomers to say, ‘now that I’m here, all growth should stop.’ We just need to manage it in a way that makes Crozet even better.”

Everything But the Donuts As the Crozet Master Plan adapts to new realities, people continue to flock there. Before it commanded enough gravitas on its own, many people moved to Crozet to be near Charlottesville. Such was the case with Terri Miyamoto and her husband in 2014. Upon retiring they wanted to relocate from New Jersey to “somewhere along the Blue

Ridge Mountains.” Of the towns they explored, they liked Charlottesville the best. Crozet had one of two area homes on the market with one-level living. Miyamoto reports, “I liked the vibe from Crozet and it was near enough to Charlottesville, which is what I really wanted. Today my trips to Charlottesville are much less frequent. Most everything we want is right here in Crozet.” Plopped on the edge of wine country, Crozet lays claim to Grace Estate, King Family, and Stinson wineries. The Chiles orchard and cidery and Pro Re Nata and Starr Hill breweries are also nearby attractions. In 2006, Starr Hill moved from Charlottesville to the vacated Morton Frozen Foods building that shuttered in 2000, laying off 600 employees. Morning beverage fans choose from Grit Coffee, Mudhouse Crozet, or a homegrown shop that just changed hands, reopening as The Yellow Mug. Wherever you are in Crozet, you’re not far from a unique dining experience. In only 3.7 square miles, Crozet serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner better than most larger towns. Smoked Kitchen & Tap, well-known as a Charlottesville food truck barbecue vendor, anchors Piedmont Place in downtown Crozet. The mixed-use building completed in 2016 brought luxury apartments, a marketplace, and a rooftop event space to town. Old Trail is home to Restoration, serving American casual or elegant fare at the golf club. Enjoy wine pairing dinners, special events, outdoor dining, and spectacular mountain views. Near the Old Trail Drive hub, choose from Coconut Thai Kitchen, Mi Rancho Mexican Crozet, and others. Near the Square you’ll find pizza lovers at Crozet Pizza, pub fare and a place to hang out at Fardowners, and specialty breakfast platters, burgers, sandwiches

and salads at the Whistle Stop Grill. Unique storefronts and services abound in Crozet. Think of it as a great small town, before big box stores arrived. Count on Crozet Hardware to have whatever you’re looking for. Even if you can’t find it, Jeff Brickhead and his crew know exactly where every specialty item is tucked away. Brickhead bought the hardware store after working there for 41 years, believing in Crozet’s bright future. Another unique retail operation, Bluebird and Co. is a combination bookstore, clothing, and gift shop. The new Crozet Grow Shop is just what home gardeners were missing. The 20-acre Barnes Lumber property downtown will become a new Crozet Square. With major road and building construction required, the complex will include a lighted promenade with outdoor dining and retail storefronts. A performing and art space will be prominent and much of the business space will be flexible. Developer Frank Stoner is targeting “early summer 2023 to be pushing dirt.” He has commitments from two hoteliers, one a small boutique, the other a selfserve condo hotel. Restaurants, services, and shops open and thrive if there are people to support them. Miyamato says, “Crozet doesn’t need to be preserved in amber. We still have room to grow. I would love a donut shop on Three Notched Road, but we need enough people to support that donut shop. If you want amenities, you need people.”

Hiking and Biking Central Crozet either attracts—or turns residents into—outdoors fans. Hikers and cyclists, golfers and strollers, Crozet has room for everyone. With Shenandoah National Park next door, strenuous hikes and lazy strolls come easy.


“There is still room for Crozet to grow,” says Farrell, “but we are running out of land that is easy to build on, other than the reserved phases of some older neighborhoods—like Pleasant Green. The first phase of Pleasant Green sold out almost instantly. Phase Two just opened.” Stanley Martin Homes has townhomes in Pleasant Green under $400,000 and single-family homes starting from $549,900. Rooftop terraces, finished lofts, gourmet kitchens, and designer finishes, coupled with a community clubhouse and other amenities make this a highly desirable neighborhood. Southern Development also has townhomes available in Old Trail from the low $500s. Sales Manager Sara Hoagland says, “Sales are brisk so don’t wait. Buyers love to be able to do some customization, and the fact that our homes are 100 percent Pearl Certified locks in the value of the home’s energy efficiency.” REALTOR® Kate Colvin, with Howard Hanna Roy Wheeler Realty, says “Craig Builders has two buildings of attached villas in Block 7 of Old Trail. The homes overlook a pond with dra-

Model Growth It’s not even classified as a town, but Crozet can model how a town should grow—dense, confined, with non-car transportation options, and meeting many of the daily needs of residents. Jaunt’s Crozet CONNECT is the weekday commuter service bringing riders from Crozet to UVA and Downtown Charlottesville. It’s a great start, but anyone driving Route 250 during commuter hours knows ridership could improve. Another potential link is the proposed Three Notched Trail shared-use path

between Charlottesville and Crozet to the Blue Ridge Tunnel in Afton. Albemarle County recently received a $2 million planning award to keep the project moving forward. “We wrote to [Transportation Secretary] Pete Buttigieg and got $2 million!” says Miyamoto. She does her part, working on the Crozet Trail Crew, riding her electric bike for recreation and transportation, and seeing the big picture. “I score Crozet high on my ‘Old Lady Quality of Life Metric.’ I can ride my electric bike to 10 wineries. Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyard is my limit, taking my whole battery charge to get there and back to Crozet. Last year I put more miles on my ebike than I did on my 15-yearold Honda. “We must address climate change as something we can impact. Swapping gas cars for electric vehicles won’t be enough. We need to have and use public transportation, and for public transportation to work we need density. “The best thing about Crozet is in five minutes on my bike, I can be out in the country—mooing at the cows and neighing at the horses. We must allow more density.” If so, that donut shop may yet open on Three Notched Road. And perhaps it will be the backdrop for Brown’s 31st book in the Mrs. Murphy Mysteries, set in Crozet and due to be published next spring. Carla Huckabee writes about high-performing real estate.

Greenwood Homes offers townhomes from $399,900 and single-family homes from the upper $500,000s. Three-bedroom villas are also available from $469,900. Other pockets for future construction include Old Dominion Village along Route 240, which was approved for 110 townhomes and single-family homes on 24 acres. Farrell says, “Montclair is another proposed development. If it moves forward, that’s 150 more homes. “Buyers can find existing homes on the market in Crozet, but inventory is low, and prices are high. Third-quarter numbers show we are cooling off both in year-over-year numbers and one quarter to the next. Million-dollar homes used to come on the market occasionally in Crozet; now they’re common.”

And the Crozet Trails Crew is bringing trails as close to your door as possible. Instead of lamenting what’s missing, the Crew brings it into existence. Their work on multi-use trails throughout Crozet connects neighborhoods to parks and greenspaces at an enviable pace. Miyamato says “We are close to having a totally bikable community. The county has easements connecting neighborhoods and it’s in the Master Plan. We can make this happen.” One high-profile trail will connect the 22-acre Claudius Crozet Park west to the Square and east to Lickinghole Basin. The park includes athletic fields, tennis and pickleball courts, a walking trail, dog park, a fishing pond, and a pool as part of the aquatics and fitness center operated by ACAC Fitness and Wellness. Plans are in the works to replace the pool bubble with a permanent building and expanded indoor facilities. West of town, Mint Springs Valley Park offers three lakes, an extensive network of hiking trails, and an artificial beach for summer swimming. To the east, stocked Beaver Creek Lake welcomes electric-powered boats and watercraft. Most dry days find cyclists pedaling the quiet back roads around Crozet. One popular scenic ride is out Sugar Hollow Road towards Shenandoah National Park. Peter Aaron lives in the Glenbrook neighborhood and says, “Crozet is a wonderful place—rural enough to be away from the density of Charlottesville and close to less-traveled roads and the
