This is a great opportunity to own a very appealing piece of property in Amherst County, Va! More specifically, it is located in Madison Heights, Va, which is considered a census-designated place, or CDP, having a population of approximately 11,000. This 3.63 acre listing is situated directly between S. Amherst Highway and the residential Seminole Drive. This spot is ideally suited to locate your home in an area of relative seclusion, while remaining in close proximity to local businesses. Or if you are more interested in investment property, the zoning is R-2 which may allow for multiple dwellings or townhomes with County approval. This parcel has much to offer with available utilities such as sewer, power and public water nearby. Completely wooded with mostly hardwood trees, there is also a creek running through the property, adding to its visual landscaping appeal.

Once a part of Albemarle County, Amherst was created out of it in 1761, and was named in honor of Lord Jeffrey Amherst, the “Conqueror of Canada”. It is located in the Piedmont Region, geographically near the center of the State of Virginia. As population was increasing in 1807, the county was subsequently reduced in size in order to give up land to form Nelson County. Tobacco was the major cash crop of the county during its early years. Boasting a current population of approximately 33,000 people, the county continues to grow. Recreational opportunities include canoeing, kayaking and fishing on public lakes, namely Mill Creek, Otter Lake, Thrashers Lake, and Stonehouse Lake. Additionally, you’ll find many parks and hiking trails throughout, as approximately 25 miles of the Appalachian Trail passes through the County within the George Washington National Forest. Mountain peaks awaiting exploration included Mount Pleasant, Cole Mountain and Tar Jacket Ridge.
