It is within 100 miles of downtown Washington, D.C., 10 miles from the University of Virginia’s Central Grounds, and less than one mile from major retail/shopping centers, numerous housing developments, the Charlottesville/Albemarle Regional Airport, and the Joint Use Intelligence Analysis Facility in Rivanna Station – home to the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Ground Intelligence Center and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

The Charlottesville area is home to Thomas Jefferson’s University of Virginia, consistently rated as one of the very best public Universities in the country.

Set in the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville and Albemarle County are home to a variety of cultural organizations and hosts a wide range of sporting events, annual festivals, and community programs. Outstanding health care facilities, one of the best school systems in the Commonwealth, and an unspoiled countryside ensure a high quality of life.
