Northern Albemarle offers a wide range of housing choices and easy access to the most extensive retail and dining options in the entire county along Route 29 North. From the Fashion Square Mall to Hollymead Town Center and everything in between, Northern Albemarle residents are just minutes from just about any store you can imagine. There’s also an extensive variety of housing options: large and small subdivisions, rural communities, established neighborhoods with classic architecture, and many new home communities. But, Northern Albemarle isn’t just close to shopping – there are plenty of other amenities nearby. For nature lovers, Chris Greene Lake – with trails, picnic areas, a dog park, and a beach area – is an extremely popular destination. The Shenandoah National Park is just a few miles to the northwest and several vineyards on the Virginia Wine Trail are just a short drive. With its close proximity to the airport and with the influx of jobs affiliated with the UVA Research Park and NGIC, you can expect the growth in Northern Albemarle to continue.
