Stagebridge, like much
of the east coast, has been blessed with an abundance of much-needed rainfall.
The springs and streams are running well and our landscape folks are keeping
the grounds mowed and trimmed. With the mild temperatures and rain, this year
at Stagebridge has been one of the most beautiful yet. The mountainside is
a rainbow of brilliant colors from all the flowering trees. The leaves on
the trees are just about filled out, however far views are still breathtaking
through our generous view sheds.
Happy St. Patrick's Day
The views at Stagebridge are breathtaking, with the trees beginning to bud
and bloom, and spring bulbs starting to show their colors. Soon everywhere
you look there will be brilliant colors of green, red, yellow, and more. Shortly,
redbud, maple, apple, cherry, and dogwood will be in bloom, contributing to
the rainbow of spring colors at Stagebridge.
Despite the unexpected wintry air that has been lingering around the Central
Virginia area and the unwanted news of six more weeks of winter, we at Stagebridge
are enjoying everything the land has to offer. Snow during the December and
January months made for breathtaking views of the mountains and all of Stagebridge.
The winter animals were out and about enjoying the snow and even some of our
own Community members joined them with snowman-making and sledding.
Fall: October 2009
October has nearly come
to an end, bringing cooling temperatures and longer nights. The still-vibrant
colors remind us that the trees have only begun to shed their leaves. This
is arguably one of the best times to tour the Stagebridge Community. The fallen
leaves have unlocked views spanning Nelson County, showing the depth of fall
The gracious rainfall
has continued this year, July was a bit dry, but August and September have
been wet, creating a lush and plentiful forest landscape throughout Stagebridge.
The blackberries ripened and are now all consumed, but honeysuckle and other
wildflowers continue to provide splashes of color throughout. Soon the fall
foliage and colors will be upon us. The creeks and streams are wonderfully
full, creating breathtaking sights around Stagebridge. Despite the intermittent
rainfall, the weather has been seasonally mild, which despite the shortening
days provides for a perfect tour of Stagebridge.

Through the information
provided on our web site, we at Stagebridge LLC aim to do two things:
• Provide you useful
information about rural mountain living in Central Virginia
• Explain the unique features of our community
We welcome your interest
and feedback, and stand ready to answer your questions.
Recent trends in rural
2010 has begun in the
midst of both positive and negative factors. On the plus side, rural mountain
land that is suitable for building is becoming increasingly scarce, especially
for land with good view sites, a well and utilities, as well as wooded privacy.
Large lots over 5 acres,
especially those 21 acres and up, are hard to find in the mountains. These
large lots can have property tax and financing advantages over smaller lots,
besides providing more privacy and long-term value. Locally, price trends
are down somewhat but still in the $10,000-$20,000/acre range for larger,
improved tracts in Nelson County and twice that amount in Albemarle County.
Nationwide, price trends for larger tracts of rural land are up, despite a
glut in smaller building lots in established suburban subdivisions. It’s
clear that people want to live in rural areas. Furthermore, institutions and
other investors now view rural land as an asset class, one not correlated
with the stock market, and capable of excellent, steady returns.
On the negative side,
national economic trends are poor and uncertain. Money is hard to borrow in
general, especially for land. Locally, our area is doing somewhat better.
Over the years we have developed excellent sources of mortgage funding and
lenders who are willing to collateralize land (most are not), and some provide
preferred terms to the larger tracts. Please contact Stagebridge for more
information on financing.

Deciding to purchase
rural land is a complex process. Our view is that rural land is an asset class
that will serve one well over the next few years, particularly land that provides
recreation, beautiful home sites, and proximity to the amenities of a major
city. This has been our view for the past 20 years and our premise for the
next 20. Please consider joining us at Stagebridge. For a private tour and
