You’re done looking! In Schuyler, Virginia, near real-life Walton Mountain, these 2 acres are your key to happiness. Situated in an “eco-village” called The Quarries, with trails in the area and a commitment to sustainable building techniques.
30 minutes from Charlottesville and the University of Virginia, your cabin is always close to civilization, but remote enough for privacy and seclusion among the protective tree cover on your property. This area is wine country, with certain views reminiscent of Napa Valley or even Tuscany — the perfect getaway from the hustle of Washington DC or other cities in the region. Less than 150 miles to DC, 90 miles to Richmond.
The north entrance to the famous Blue Ridge Parkway is only 30 minutes away, near the entrance to Shenandoah National Park. Keep going west for George Washington & Jefferson National Forest, and the Monongahela National Forest. Rich in history, you’re never far from a Revolutionary War and/or Civil War battlefield or notable homestead such as Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. Great minds think alike!
HOA dues are $8.33 per month, or $100/year. This parcel is perfect for someone interested in eco-friendly architecture and sustainability, as that is one of the only covenants. By easement, the driveway is shared with the neighboring parcel, which is currently vacant. The parcel does dip into Nelson county, crossing the Albemarle county border and resulting in a second tax bill, however the combined tax bills only amount to $109.34 per year. Even with HOA included, that is quite affordable for such a nice area of the country to call your own.
