Chesterfield County is located just south of Richmond. On May 25, 1749, the Virginia House of Burgesses separated Chesterfield from Henrico and created the new county. The legislature named the county for the former British Secretary of State, Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield. Lord Chesterfield was famous for his “good manners and writings”. So, one of his most frequently used sayings was, “An injury is much sooner forgotten than an insult.”
The photo above is an example of a walkout basement that has been transformed into a beautiful living area. The focal point of the basement is a natural, stacked stone, gas fireplace perfect for winter nights. Accent walls of shiplap create a cozy atmosphere. This touch of farmhouse styling complements the stone. A wall of folding glass exterior doors allows light to flood into what could be a dark space. The doors also allow homeowners to enjoy beautiful views and easy access to their backyard.
Below you will see the traditional style in the exterior of the home as well. The owners chose stately, round columns to compliment the black maintenance free railings.
Chesterfield County is a first rate community in which to live, work, and raise a family. More than 340,000 people make it their home. The county’s popularity is credited to excellent neighborhoods, schools and services. Chesterfield is seeing steady growth because it is home to many large employers like Amazon, Dupont and Dominion Power. With locations like Henricus Historical Park and world‐class sports venues like the Collegiate School Aquatic Center and River City Sportsplex, residents, businesses and visitors alike can enjoy the amenities that make it such a special place.
