Your daughter is an hour and a half north on 29 from here in Albemarle county. Is it still mostly rural up there? Lots of growth here, with the nearby UVa but we still have no close neighbors, just high tax assessments.

Where she lives is wall-to-wall housing complexes with a "working" farm or two mixed in. Lots of richy-rich horsey type farms.

Far better zoning here, most of Albemarle is rural with no possibility of high density development. In fact, the county board keeps looking at all the land taxed under the land use program (designed to prevent farmers from being taxed off their land) with an eye toward getting some of that $90 million they don't collect every year. I found a state law that will protect me, after jumping through a few hoops.

Not that this isn't a big horse area also. Convenient for me, when I need manure for composting. I can be picky about who I allow to load 6 tons on my truck, for free. They're always eager to have me back. Supply exceeds demand.

Second property over, the 2300 ac farm was sold to a developer. Only 100 house sites, selling briskly around $500,000. By the time you put in your driveway, get the plan approved for an approved builder, and get it built, you don't get in for under $2 million. Pretty expensive for here.

Daughter and SIL bought a place behind the tracks in Remington during the height of the housing bubble. Paid through the wahzoo for a medium sized shoddily constructed house. After the crash they bought a larger place about 2 miles away (forclosure) for $100,000 less (also shoddy construction). They are renting the smaller place until they can pay enough off the thing to sell it. All the neighbors spend an awful lot of time telling you how wonderful the area is. Yet every man-jack among them scours the state looking for the biggest rotte, pit bull, dobbie cross dogs they can find. Every door and every vehicle is locked tight 24/7. This ole country boy might be dumb, but I ain't stupid. NY sux, but at least where I live for the most part, I can still trust my neighbors.

Visited Monticello last year. Spent the day there. Fascinating place.
