Midlothian Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Virginia
The Village of Midlothian offers residents a quiet respite from the daily bustle of its neighboring metropolitan city, Richmond. While Richmond is only about a half-hour drive away, many who commute to the city look forward to coming home at the end of the work day to the green pastures, tree-lined streets and quiet neighborhoods of Midlothian. Just recently, Midlothian was ranked the sixth best suburb in the United States based on "affordable housing, good schools, educated neighbors, low crime [rate], employment and reasonable commutes" by Location, Inc., creator of the NeighborhoodScout website. The village has also been recognized by CNN/Money as one of the best places to live in 2005 and again in 2008.
Located in Chesterfield County in the Southside of Richmond, Midlothian was first established as a coal mining village in the 1700s before experiencing a decline in coal mining during the early 20th century. During this time, Midlothian was a largely wooded area with farmland and dirt roads before the Richmond metropolitan region began to expand, bringing with it residential development. Today, Midlothian is the thirteenth largest community in the state and is still undergoing new housing growth as more and more people come to Midlothian to settle down, raise a family, and fulfill their career goals. Midlothian's real estate market is primarily anchored by listings for single-family homes. Land parcels are also available for purchase.
