Spotsylvania Va Real Estate

Spotsylvania Virginia real estate.

Communities and Homes For Sale:

Spotsylvania offers and array of housing choices to suit anyone’s desire. From rural to suburban locations, acreage to ¼ acre lots, grand estates to split foyers, there is something here to fulfill everyone’s dream of home ownership! There are numerous “sections” to Spotsylvania County and unless you are a native like me, you may not know that they even exist. To narrow it down, I have chosen a handful of them to emphasize which include, Chancellorsville, Chancellor, Leavells, Massaponax, Spotsylvania Courthouse, Glenora, Lewistown, Stubbs and Belmont to name a few.

There are many neighborhoods in the Chancellorsville area that are close in proximity to the Rappahannock River or who their property lines back right up to it. A few of notable mention would be River Bluffs, Sedgwick, and River Junction. Mineral SpringsEstates of Chancellorsville, Pipe Run, Chancellorsville Hunt, Motts Run Estates, Chapel Hills, and Belle Rive are other wonderful communities in the Chancellorsville area. If you are in the market for land and the possibility of building your own home, Avalon subdivision off of River Road has lots for sale. Newly developed neighborhoods, Stonegate Estates and Glen Haven off of Spotswood Furnace Road also currently have nicely sized lots for sale.

Closer towards Fredericksburg and adjacent to the Chancellorsville area is the Chancellor area. The Chancellor area extends along Route 3 East all the way to where the county line meets the City of Fredericksburg (roughly the Interstate 95 corridor). If this is where you wish to be, I might suggest such neighborhoods as Chancellor West or Estates of Lee Jackson off of Old Plank Road. The Saw Hill community off of Catharpin Road is also very nice. Homes in all three of these neighborhoods are estate style with lots that provide ample “breathing room”. If you are thinking of building your own home, The Woods of Catharpin is a brand new community that is just opening up. Additional communities that back up to the Ni River Reservoir are Mystic Point and Ni River Landing. Stacy Crossing, Ashby Woods, Summers Landing are also great communities in the Chancellor area. More established communities such as Fox Meadows at Crystal Lakes, Red Rose Village, and Enchanted Woods are also very nice and all three are located off of Gordon Road. Following Route 3 East, additional communities that are great for first time homebuyers are Sheraton Hills East, Governor’s Green, Heatherstone, Wilburn Gardens and Waverly Village. The Chancellor area is home to the Spotsylvania Towne Centre, where there is ample retail shopping and eateries. Anchor stores Macy’s, Sears, Belk, and Costco can be found here as well most other regular mall retailers. At the rear of the Spotsylvania Towne Centre is The Village at Towne Centre. Here you will find such specialty shops as Arhaus, Saxon Shoes, Sephora, White House Black Market, and Charming Charlie. Additional entertainment can also be had at The Village at Towne Centre at Paragon Village 12 theatre and Splitsville bowling.

Sitting slightly further in from Route 3 than the Chancellor area is the Leavells area. The Leavells area sits directly beside the City of Fredericksburg line along the Rt. 1 corridor and Rt. 208. This location is very convenient for many due to its proximity to City of Fredericksburg amenities. Neighborhoods of interest in this area are Carriage Hills, Beauclaire Plantation, Twin Springs and Kingswood. All three of these communities are located off of Harrison Road. More established communities in this area consist of Breezewood, Cambridge, and Willow Pond. Newer communities that offer larger homes are Breckenridge, Crown Grant and Edinburgh. If you are looking to build in this area you may want to check out two additional communities that are opening up in the back of Breckenridge, called Breckenridge Estates and Woods of Breckenridge.

The Massaponax area has seen tremendous growth over the last five years; thus making the outskirts of these areas very popular living quarters for many. With new luxury communities like Lee’s Parke, The Estates of Lee’s Parke, and The Trails, there is certainly a house plan for everyone. The Lee’s Hill Community, located off of Old Dominion Parkway, offers a wealth of amenities to its residents; including two swimming pools and a swim team, tennis and basketball courts, walking trails, community center, onsite management concierge and its own 18 hole members golf course! All of these communities surround the brand new Cosner’s Corner shopping area, where you will find restaurants and shopping galore. For entertainment in the Massaponax area there is Liberty Lanes, American Family Fitness, and the Marquee Cinemas.

The Spotsylvania Courthouse area has also transitioned a bit. New roads have been established in order to ease access to major thoroughfares and retailers. If you would like to live further away from the hustle and bustle, The Laurels, Courthouse Crossing, Courthouse Commons, and Fox Point are great perfect for this. Established neighborhoods that have great curb appeal are Bloomsbury, Woodfield, Westfield and Hollybrooke. In these neighborhoods you will find ½ to ¾ acre lots. Hollybrooke even has its own community pool. For large lots and estate homes turn to Bloomsbury Farm Estates. If your desire is new construction, Everette Estates is offering ½ to 1 acre wooded lots for sale.

The Stubb, Glenora, Lewistown and Belmont localities line the Lake Anna area. The Lake Anna area is so vast with the lake itself spanning 13,000 acres that it actually lies within the county lines of 3 counties in Virginia. My focus here was only on the Spotsylvania areas of Lake Anna. Lake Anna itself has so many activities to offer with its endless fishing, swimming, boating, water-skiing or sailing, that it almost seems that you have gone on vacation! The Lake Anna State Park is also here and provides opportunities for hiking, camping, biking, picnicking and horseback riding. The Lake Anna area even has its own winery that you can tour and enjoy a tasting. Notable communities in the Lake Anna area are Magnolia Harbour, Sunrise Bay, Southwind Shores, Sunset Harbour, Oakridge, and Rolling Woods. Because of all that the Lake Anna area has to offer, it has become very popular of the last 5-10 years for many to purchase a vacation home or a second home.


With Spotsylvania, VA being a popular place to call home for many families and spanning 407 square miles, there are a numerous public schools to choose from depending on where you purchase your home. Spotsylvania currently has 17 elementary schools, 7 middle schools, 5 high schools, a Career and Technical Center, the John J. Wright Educational and Cultural Center as well as the nationally recognized education institution of The Commonwealth Governor’s School. Odyssey Montessori School, Saint Patrick School, Tree of Life Christian Prep School, Lighthouse Academy of Fredericksburg, Hazelwild Farm Education Foundation and Faith Baptist Christian School are private academies that are all located in Spotsylvania. For higher education, Germanna Community College has an annex in Spotsylvania County in the Massaponax area.

About Spotsylvania County:

One of Virginia’s fastest growing counties and the one to which I am a native is Spotsylvania County, VA. Over the years Spotsylvania, VA has become one of the more popular places to live and is the southernmost county in what is often now referred to as “Northern Virginia”, due to its cardinal proximity to Washington D.C. Spotsylvania County, VA lies along the East Coast’s primary transportation corridor, Interstate 95, therefore providing an easy commuter transportation route and accessibility to larger markets for employment opportunities in Washington D.C. and or Richmond, VA, without having to live in the expensive urban markets. Spotsylvania also offers opportunity for acreage in its more rural communities, which is an appeal to many people.

Spotsylvania has numerous parks and recreation spots that cater to anyone’s interests. If you are looking to be on or near the water are in luck, as Spotsylvania has plenty of that to go around. Not only is Spotsylvania bordered to the North by the Rapidan River which then merges with the Rappahannock River, Spotsylvania County is bordered to the South almost in its entirety by Lake Anna. Loriella Park has a lifeguarded public swimming pool, lighted sports fields and tennis courts and is located right off of Leavells Road. There is also Ni River Reservoir Park, Patriot Park, Cosner Park, Lee Hill Park, and the Lake Anna State Park are just to name a few. The Marshall Center off of Courthouse Road (by the Spotsylvania Courthouse) not only offers a variety of Teen and Senior activities, but also contains an annex of The Rappahannock Regional Library respectfully called the C. Melvin Snow Memorial Branch.

For the history buff, Spotsylvania is sure to please being that it is “The Crossroads of the Civil War”. The Battle of Chancellorsville and The Battle of Spotsylvania were both fought here; as well as portions of the Wilderness Battlefields lie in Spotsylvania County. Located at the Spotsylvania Courthouse history lessons can be revisited at the new Spotsylvania Museum, the Historic Courthouse, Spotswood Inn, the Old Jail, and the Spotsylvania Confederate Cemetery.

Spotsylvania County offers affordable housing with family friendly communities, quality public education, recreational resources and artistic and historic amenities. Because Spotsylvania County possesses many of the lifestyle factors that we all look for when considering a place to call home, it is easy to see why Spotsylvania County, VA is such an attractive place for many to call home.
