Big City Versus Suburban Living

Suburban Home Midlothian
Lately, there has been a great deal of attention placed on living in downtown areas.  Some love the idea of living in a large metro area with all the lights, sounds, and smells that come with it. 

Still, many prefer the quiet, slower pace of living in the suburbs.  If you've been searching for a home in Richmond but living in an urban setting seems too overwhelming, then why not consider one of our stand-out, suburban areas:  Midlothian, VA.

Only a quick 25-minute commute from Richmond, Midlothian was voted by CNBC.com as one of Top 10 Perfect Suburbs in the U.S. and Money Magazine among their Best Places to Live rankings.  If you're looking to relocate to a community with good schools, low crime, quality living, and affordable housing, Midlothian is the right Chesterfield County community for you.
