Roanoke County - North

Those looking for a little more elbow room without wanting to sacrifice proximity to the city will be drawn to North County. Its closeness to the airport, its adjacency to some of the larger big box stores within the Valley View Mall, and its easy access to the main highways and byways are just a few of the benefits of living north of the city.

Key Features

Hollins University: As a smaller, private college, Hollins doesn't lend the same college-town feel as some of the bigger universities. That said, the walking trails and green spaces of the campus are a great amenity for those in the North Roanoke area.

Bang for your Buck: Price per square foot is a bit lower than in South Roanoke County, giving homeowners the ability to purchase larger homes and lots.
