Brandermill is a Nature Lovers Paradise

 

If nothing but the best will do for you and your family, look no further than the nationally recognized  waterfront community of Brandermill.  Named the Best Planned Community in America by Better Homes and Gardens and the National Association of Home Builders upon its first inception, Brandermill is only 15 miles from Richmond City and near all the best amenities that the Greater Richmond Area has to offer!
 
Enjoy a serene, natural environment with lots of privacy in the Brandermill neighborhood by taking advantage of the 15 miles of biking and walking trails that wind throughout the community and along the edge of Swift Creek Reservoir— a natural habitat that was carefully preserved since the original master plan of the Brandermill Development.  Protecting these natural resources continue to be among the top priorities of the community today in order to enjoy boating, fishing, sailing and hiking for generations to come!  The natural environment is unparalleled within the community and boasts parks, pavilions, pools, and a marina with many boat slips, or enjoy a rented paddleboat, sailboat, kayak or canoe from The Sailing Center.
 
   
 
This natural theme continues to the environments surrounding each one of its beautiful homes.  This cedar-sided four bedroom and two and a half bath house was built on a third of an acre. The natural landscaping means no yard work besides a little leaf blowing maintenance in the fall to the surrounding wooded areas. Rhododendron and Azaleas abound! There is a large wooden deck to enjoy the surroundings, perfect for entertaining—  or watch a summer rain from the extra large screened-in porch. You can listen to the singing birds from the surrounding forest, or hear the Spring Peepers chirping in the beginning of Spring.
 
   
 
While all the seasons pass outside, enjoy all the comforts of a modern, updated home on the inside!  Espresso hardwood floors throughout the first floor creates a warm environment with lots of space in the formal dining room and two living areas featuring built-in bookcases and a beautiful hearth and fireplace.  The eat-in kitchen has a large island, new tile flooring, and lighting. The new quartz countertops and gas range make this kitchen long lasting and on-trend as well as any culinary adventurers dream!
 
   
 
The espresso wood flooring continues in the hallway upstairs between the 4 bedrooms and bathroom with the bedrooms having brand new carpeting for that extra plush comforting feel.  The Master bedroom has two large walk-in closets along with a newly renovated bathroom.  All  bedrooms feature large closets and the hall bathroom has been newly renovated as well.  The walk-up attic and garage ensure plenty of storage in this home.
 
   
 
There is lots to do in the Brandermill Community, from annual July 4th celebrations, to 7.4K runs, wine and cheese sunset cruises, guided nature walks or family campouts.  There is something for everyone in this community.  Bolstered by civic organizations such as the Brandermill Women’s Club and the Brandermill Region Men’s Club, activities and charitable events take place year round.  There are many youth clubs organized in or nearby Brandermill such as little league or youth soccer.  The baseball diamond within the community is a great place to watch games, or play a game of pick-up!  You can keep up with all of the goings-on in The Village Mill, the Brandermill Community’s monthly publication.
 
Truly a community oriented neighborhood, Brandermill is certainly a place where you can find home.
