The first settlers who came to Virginia in Colonial days were planters, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson being the most famous. Agriculture is still the dominant use of Virginia land although the amount of cropland in the Old Dominion has been steadily declining. The average Virginia farm still covers 171 acres and parcels many times larger still hit the market.
This agrarian lifestyle is foreign to most of the residents of Northern Virginia, which contains six of the highest-income counties in America and the single richest town, Great Falls. Undeveloped land here is typically secluded on private estates and horse farms.
Waterfront territory is best hunted in the Northern Neck and the Virginia Eastern Shore on either side of the Chesapeake Bay. The Hampton Roads area where the bay meets the Atlantic Ocean is the most populous region of the state, with an assist from the largest concentration of military bases of any metropolitan area in the world.
Some of the closest rural property to Washington, DC is 40 miles to the west down Route 7 where the briskest action has taken place in the Virginia real estate market of late. Beyond that is the four-season beauty of the Shenandoah Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains. One drive down the 105-mile Skyline Drive will have you dreaming of owning property here.
Hunters will find expansive tracts of undeveloped woodland further south near the North Carolina border and deep into the far southwestern part of the state in the Cumberland Mountains. Smith Mountain Lake, with 500 miles of shoreline, is a popular property-seeking destination. This is a land a world away from the political hustle and bustle of the Washington-influenced part of Virginia – it is a seven-hour drive to the nation’s capital from the secluded lands of Lee County.
