Goochland

Goochland County has some of the highest home values in the entire Richmond Metro area, particularly the eastern portion. With 21,700 residents, it is a beautiful 290-square mile area that runs along the James River, just west of Richmond. Known for stunning views and stately homes, property values have held up better than most in this market surrounding Hermitage Country Club and Kinloch Golf Club.

Interesting trivia: Goochland’s favorite son is Cy Young Award Winner Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers.
