Chesterfield is one of the two counties that border the City of Richmond (along with Henrico) and is physically located to the south and west along the James River. Chesterfield is the most densely populated county in the RVA Metro and as well as one of the largest in terms of land mass making it a very substantial part of the overall area.
The county can be divided into the following areas:
Northern Chesterfield (MLS Zone 64) – which includes area names such as Bon Air and Midlothian. The Robious Road/Huguenot Trail corridor is a part of 64. Zone 64 typically carries the highest property values in Chesterfield. Prominent new home subdivisions include Tarrington, Founders Bridge and Oak Park.
Central Chesterfield (MLS Zone 62) – which runs the entire length of the county between Routes 60 and 360 (Midlothian Turnpike and Hull Street). Brandermill/Woodlake and all of the development around the Swift Creek Reservoir are a part of this area. Zone 62 and 54 comprise the highest level of growth and density in the county. Prominent new home subdivisions include Magnolia Green, Hallsley, and RounTrey.
South Central/Southeast (MLS Zones 54 and 52) – This high growth area surrounding the Chesterfield Court House, sometimes referred to simply as ‘Chesterfield,’ is located in the southern area of the county. Route 10 and 288 are the major ingress/egress arterials for the residents. The SE Chesterfield corridor borders Interstate 95, The James River and Jeff Davis Highway, all of which are the primary industrial corridors in the area. While there are many large employers (Philip Morris, DuPont) located in Zone 52, their presence is not overly helpful to the values of the residential properties nearby. Prominent Subdivisions include The Highlands and Chesdin Landing.
