Southwest Virginia at a glance:

Southwest Virginia

Known as the “Heart of Appalachia,” Southwest Virginia owes its stunning natural beauty to its location just west of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The region, made up of seventeen counties, is bordered by North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Southwest Virginia real estate is prime for investors and people looking for homes for sale.

Southwest Virginia was originally prized for its extensive coal fields, but demand for coal began to decline with the passage of the Clean Air Act in 1970. Today, its real value lies in its majestic scenery, abundant wildlife, and Appalachian real estate. With more than 90,000 acres of national forest, there is no shortage of options for nature lovers. Bikers can follow the Heart of Appalachia Bike Route for an up-close view of the area’s vast wilderness, while ecotours are available to intrepid hikers.

Southwest Virginia real estate is popular among vacation home buyers. Water sport enthusiasts will enjoy spending time at the 20,000-acre Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia’s most popular lake. And drivers can take in the scenery from the more than 469 miles that make up the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Because of the area’s natural boundaries, Southwest Virginia real estate has relatively few urban areas. Roanoke, known as the “Star City of the South” is the region’s largest city, with a population of close to 100,000. Salem, the area’s next largest city, has only a quarter of Roanoke’s population. However, as host of the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, it enjoys national recognition among football fans. Bristol, with a population of close to 20,000, is the area’s third largest city. In fact, it is two cities, divided by the Virginia-Tennessee border. It is also well-known to sports fans as home of the Bristol Motor Speedway (on the Tennessee side), which holds the record for the “World’s Fastest Half Mile.”

Southwest Virginia’s rural charm poses no limitations to the amenities and attractions that the region has to offer. A number of major festivals are held here annually, including the Virginia Highlands Festival in Historic Abingdon—as featured in National Geographic—and the National Storytelling Festival in nearby Jonesborough, TN. Speedway in Lights, held during the winter holidays at Bristol Motor Speedway, is a local family-favorite, with proceeds going to the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities. Numerous golf courses, stables, and twelve wineries also dot the landscape.

The region, which is served by both the Roanoke Regional Airport and the Tri-Cities Regional Airport, is home to several institutions of higher learning. These include Virginia Tech, Radford, Roanoke College, Bluefield College, and the Appalachian School of Law. Younger scholars can participate in the region’s Southwest Virginia 4-H Educational Center, which accepts more than 2,000 youths annually into their ACA-accredited 4-H camping programs.

Southwest Virginia real estate is a natural choice for anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of big-city living and buy Appalachian real estate. If you’re interested in finding Southwest Virginia real estate or homes for sale in this stunning rural setting, then contact any of Long & Foster’s real estate offices in Southwest Virginia.
