I love my readers.
Jim: One thing I looked at when comparing properties was if the subdivision had more than one access; I was surprised at how many were dependent on one way in/out. Thought you would want to mention it along with other insights. Enjoy your blog even long after stopping to look for houses.
This isn’t something I’ve ever thought about, but in light of the snowpocalypse, it’s a pretty good idea.
One thing I do tell my clients relocating to the Charlottesville area from other regions is this – when considering the “sub regions” within Charlottesville and Albemarle, consider this –
Crozet is the only area with two major roads – 250 and 64 – accessing it.
Think about it –
29 North – has 29
Pantops – has 250 and 64, but they converge about a mile too early.
20/29 South – Same as 29 North
