Albemarle County Public Schools that serve Blandemar Farm Estates are Red Hill Elementary, Walton Middle, and Monticello Hich Schools.

Private schools nearby are St. Anne’s-Belfield and the Miller School of Albemarle.

Location: In Red Hill, 15 mins southwest of Charlottesville and UVA off of Rt 29.

Directions: 64 West to exit 114 for Ivy. Left onto Dick Woods Road. Go 1.8 miles. Left onto Taylor’s Gap Road. Go 1.9 miles. Left into Blandemar.

My Thoughts: This neighborhood is fabulous. It’s not too far from Charlottesville and it’s private and the flora and fauna are spectacular. It’s also one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Charlottesville. While there are no amenities such as a pool or tennis courts, I give Blandemar a 9 out of 10 for its beauty and serenity.

Note – There is one older home dating to 1930. This house was where James Michener wrote his novel, Poland.

Note – Animal lovers, your dogs, cats, and horses are welcome here.
