Land for Sale in Virginia

If you dream about finding a breathtaking spot to build your dream home, you should consider purchasing a large tract of land in Virginia.  The beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia area has many opportunities to purchase large pristine tracts of land, including land parcels with over 900 acres!

Much of the land is beautiful and private, but is still close to all of the amenities and attractions of the Charlottesville Area nearby, including historic sites, wineries, upscale eateries, shopping, and more. 

Charlottesville is in Abermarle County, Virginia, which conveniently sits 110 miles southwest of Washington, D. C. and 70 miles west of Richmond.  Abermarle County is located in the Central Virginia along the Rivanna River  and west of the Southwest Mountains, which the Virginia Board of Historic Resources describes as “some of the Piedmont’s most pristine and scenic countryside. Characterized by undulating pastures, winding roadways, forested hills, and small hamlets, the district contains a broad range of 18th-, 19th- and early 20th-century rural architecture, reflecting the evolving cultural patterns of more than 250 years of settlement.” 

Albemarle County has a moderate climate with fairly mild winters and warm, humid summers. The average high in July is 86 °F and the average low in January is 26 °F. 

Charlottesville and the surrounding towns are rich in history and it is the ideal place to purchase land.  Charlottesville was formed in 1762 and named after Queen Charlotte, queen consort of King George III of the United Kingdom. The area was home to Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, and Edgar Allen Poe when he was a student.  There are many historical churches, taverns, and parks.
