One of the things I hope to accomplish here is to create an overall impression of Charlottesville's variety of housing options available in Charlottesville. While we are in many ways still a very small community, we are forever growing! In addition, we enjoy a wide range of community and neighborhood types of homes. There is something in our area to please everyone.

Are you hoping to find the perfect planned development, with all of the amenities, for your family?

Perhaps you would rather find an older home with architectural charm and be able to walk to downtown restaurants?

The availability may be less, but it certainly exists and is a wonderful lifestyle for certain people.

Maybe you would like a townhome, condominium, or zero-lot-line sort of community  instead?  Maybe you are a busy professional who wants or needs to spend less time worrying about your house than traveling and biking and hiking and working.  Or perhaps you are hoping to downsize and would love for someone else to take care of the exterior maintenance of your home from now on.  There are all sorts of option available.

Or, maybe you want to live in a more rural environment, have a little more breathing (growing) room.

This is probably our largest segment of the market, since its only been in the past thirty years that planned developments have come to Charlottesville.  This rural-area lifestyle is the one my husband and I have chosen.  We live in Earlysville, with gardens and big dogs, and our daily walks afford us this view.
