* CarrsbrookLocated just north of Rio Road East, this complex is comprised of around 160 homes, mostly single family detached brick ranches and 2-story colonials, but also some splits/tri-levels. Carrsbrook's neighborhoods are off windy, hilly Carrsbrook Rd, which, if followed, leads you back into Still Meadow subdivision and the backsides of the Northfields and Raintree neighborhoods.  Some streets are named after Native American tribes: Monacan, Indian Springs, Powhatan, Cherokee. Others have been named after, well...I'd say Massachusetts towns because I'm a New Englander...but probably named after British townships back from colonial times. Names like Dover, Marlboro, Gloucester, Carrsbrook, Clarke, and Highview.

The neighborhood is mostly nestled around the small Paines Lake, with the Indian streets on the north side and the British on the south:

The community enjoys close proximity to every shopping, eating, and service you would ever want just minutes drive west to Rte 29 North/South, or down Rio into the center of downtown Charlottesville.

Read a recent blog all about --> Forest Lakes



Approximately 1400 homes, around 5000 people within two phases - North and South.

Hollymead Elementary and Sutherland Middle school right in the center of the community and Baker Butler Elementary (servicing North), just down Profitt Rd to the north and east by a mile and a half.

We have two Olympic size pools (the north pool even has a water slide!), a very competitive swim team (part of the Jefferson Swim League) six lakes (no gas engines), walking and biking trails, volleyball, soccer, basketball courts, a workout facility, and a host of planned activities and services.

Forest Lakes has enjoyed stable HOA dues while pro-actively managing our amenities.
This pro-active management, the amenities, the grounds, the schools, and location, have helped keep home valuations historically above other similar homes within the area.

There are about 6 or 7 main styles of home in Forest Lakes, predominated by the 2 story, 4 bed, 2.5 bath colonial with attached garage and basement. There are also some ranches, but mostly you'll see colonials of differing floor plans.

With build dates starting in the early 1970's all the way up to the early 2000's, county records indicate a group built every decade. There is a community pool as well as paved walking trails on the main road intersecting the community. There is half ownership of Lake Hollymead.
