Formed in 1744,

Albemarle County and its county seat, Charlottesville

are one of America's most significant treasures. Graced with a remarkable geography from mountain tops of more than 3000 feet and tailing off into Virginia's Tidewater, the unmatched beauty of the area and rich soils have attracted the most discriminating and influential since colonial times.
Here, Thomas Jefferson built his home, Monticello, and The University of Virginia.
Here, James Monroe with Jefferson's assistance built his home, Ashlawn.
Here, history and culture combine in a fairy tale like setting, which has been called the number one spot for "affluentials" in America.
While Charlottesville and Albemarle County have been discovered, its population and local government seem at the very least, obsessed with its survival as one of the best places in America to live. Open Space Easements which eliminate or reduce development rights are popular in the County and seem to enhance rather than detract from market value. Albemarle tends to be one of the more expensive areas for real estate with demand outweighing supply in many categories. Still appreciation has been higher in the county than in surrounding areas making real estate an excellent investment in many cases.
