Neighborhoods & Housing
Louisa County has housing at all economic levels, from apartments and starter homes to exclusive lakefront homes on Lake Anna. Louisa County also has several residential planned communities with single-family homes at a range of different prices.
Residential areas vary from quaint towns to scenic vistas near the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Historic homes and plantations make up the 14,000 acre Green Springs Historic Landmark District. The homes and farms are a continuum of Virginia rural vernacular architecture, reflective and respectful of their location, preserved in their original context with little alteration. Plantations in Green Springs produced so much wheat during the Civil War that it was commonly referred to as the "Granary of the South".
Spring Creek offers new homes in a gated golf community at Zion Crossroads. The neighborhood features amenities such as a beautiful sports center with an oversized community pool, fitness center, meeting rooms, tennis and basketball court, a playground for the kids, and The Spring Creek Golf Club.
Developers have recently broken ground on a 1200 acre residential community at Lake Anna called Cutalong.
