The construction in Mooreland Farms began in the late 1940s. This original section of the subdivision is known as Old Mooreland Farms and offers beautiful brick Colonials, which are complete with big porches, large rooms and a traditional feel. Later, in the 1980s and 1990s, two more sections were added to the subdivision: Mooreland South and Mooreland West. The newer portions of the community offer a variety of architectural styles – Dutch, Cape, Transitional, etc. – most of which are clad in siding.
No matter which section buyers choose in Mooreland Farms, they enjoy the space and privacy that comes with large homes on spacious lots. All of the parcels are at least 1/2 acre in size, though some are as large as 7 acres. Surrounded by mature deciduous trees, the homesites are built with the land rather than altering the land for the homes. Hills remain, and the lots are not always perfectly flat. The houses themselves are spacious – 2,500 square feet on the low end and well-over 9,000 square feet on the high end. On average, buyers can expect to spend roughly between $400,000 and $2.8 million to own a piece of Mooreland Farms.
Though it is not the rural area it once was, Mooreland Farms offers a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of Richmond. The homeowners association within the neighborhood works to ensure a high quality of life for residents, and the winding roads are perfect for walking along. With the close proximity to public and private schools, great opportunities for employment in the area and a tranquil backdrop for all of life’s activities, Mooreland Farms has something to offer everyone.
