Charlottesville has the piece of land for you. Whether you’re looking for a building lot in Charlottesville, a manicured Keswick horse farm or a recreational retreat on the slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains, buying land in central Virginia can be complex. If you are buying a lot in a Charlottesville neighborhood make sure you take a look at the Homeowner’s Association Packet which is an enforceable document controlling such things as architectural guidelines, permitted uses, and various do’s and don’ts. Find out if you are on public water and sewer or will need a well and septic and start interviewing Charlottesville builders and looking at some of the homes they have built. All neighborhoods have their own personality and you’ll enjoy finding the one that suits you. Building Lots for Sale

 

Developing farm land into a working farm will depend on your desires but there is usually a highest and best use for any tract of land. Rolling, Albemarle County farm land near the Blue Ridge Mountains might be better suited for grazing cattle or planting a vineyard while the rich well drained soils of Somerset in Orange County are well suited for row crops like corn and soybeans. Predominant land use will be evident as you drive around and you’ll find fantastic assistance from

the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service to help turn your dreams to reality. Charlottesville Farms and Land for Sale

Perhaps a large tract of unimproved mountain land with a river running through it has been on your mind for years, your own domain for hiking, fishing, hunting or just retreating back to nature. The Blue Ridge Mountains and foothills offer ample opportunities for finding some mountain land for sale but keep in mind there are vast differences in woodland. A good stand of mature hardwoods can have significant timber value and is beautiful to walk through and enjoy. A tract of land that has been clear cut recently and is covered in new growth can be practically impenetrable and should best be looked at as a long term investment. In any case, all woodland needs to be managed to stay healthy. The US Department of Forestry or private foresters can help you come up with a plan to suit your needs. Custom Land Search
