Roanoke County - East

East County is home to the historic Bonsack district, and is one of the fastest growing areas of the greater Roanoke area. New amenities are complementing some of the longer-standing draws (like the Blue Hills Golf Course), and price points on both new and existing construction are competitive.

Key Features

Read Mountain Preserve: Perched at the peak of The Orchards, a planned development named for the former fruit orchards on the land, Read Mountain Preserve is considered an amenity by the residents of the area. The Preserve is a forested recreation area with five miles of hiking trails and a summit with panoramic valley views.

The Gables / Craftsman Style: For those who prioritize green building features, consider East Roanoke. This section within The Orchards development features energy-efficient homes. In the Gables section of The Orchards you'll find homes by Fralin and Waldron that follow an EarthCraft design.

Nest Picks


Nestled in the highly sought after Bonsack area, Wedgwood delivers the perfect balance of backyard privacy and serenity, while also providing proximity to shopping and area amenities.

Country Corner

Only open for eight months of the year, the items that line the shop are grown on-site or made locally! Part greenhouse, part store, yummy snacks, plants, veggies, and fabulous gifts are just a few of the things that draw in locals to the Country Corner.

The Kroger Bonsack Shopping Mall

One of the key shopping destinations for the East Roanoke area, including a large Kroger, an urgent care, gym, banks, dining, and more. In addition, you'll find industry housed within the complex, like a Coca Cola plant and a Marvin Windows factory.
