To many people, Richmond, Virginia is known for being a hip and up-and-coming area. The downtown area has all kinds of attractions to offer. From the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to Richmond Coliseum, there’s never a dull moment here.

However, Virginia has long been known as a state that keeps its wild side intact too. While Chesterfield County real estate has some beautiful options throughout countless suburbs, you’ll never be more than a stone’s throw from nature. In fact, even if you live downtown, you’ll have the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden to enjoy.

Get to the James River and it will take you just about anywhere you’d want to go for camping, fishing and hunting. But that’s far from all. There’s Brush Mountain and the forests that surround it. There is no shortage of things to do there. Big Woods State forest will also give you over 2,200 acres to enjoy, especially if you get a permit for hunting. Appomattox-Buckingham state forest is great too.

For a lot of people, we’d spend every waking hour in the wilderness if it was possible. If you look for Virginia homes for sale, though, you can get pretty close to this dream and still have a comfortable bed to sleep in at night, plus a ton of other creature comforts too.


Have you decided it’s time to relocate to Richmond? If so, the help of a Chesterfield realtor like those at The Steele Group Sotheby’s International Realty will make a huge difference.
