Albemarle County Neighborhoods: Ednam Forest, one of Charlottesville’s understated luxury neighborhoods

Charlottesville va communities and neighborhoods, Charlottesville Realtor Virginia GardnerEdnam Forest is always a joy to visit. 

I like viewing the variety of homes in Ednam Forest. However, what I really like is the way this community was designed to show off its natural assets.  The lots are large, with mature landscaping. The abundance of large trees really gives you the feeling that the houses are tucked into a forest. Ednam Forest is one of Charlottesville’s luxury communities, but it doesn’t shout it.

There’s wonderful geographical and architectural variation throughout the community

In one area, you might find traditional Virginia homes, Colonial in flavor.  Drive a bit around a corner, and there are a series of stunning contemporaries, built into the canopy of the trees. The materials are all natural, so the houses blend beautifully with their environment.  It works really well.

There are never many homes on the market at one time at Ednam, and the nicest homes come and go quickly.  If you are hoping to find the perfect Charlottesville area home in Ednam Forest or another exclusive western Charlottesville community, email  I can also be reached by text or phone call,  Virginia Gardner  (434) 981-0871.
