Bellona Arsenal + Clark\'s Forge // Chesterfield County
Both Clarks Forge and Bellona Arsenal are smaller exclusive neighborhoods located off Old Gun Road in the northwest section of Chesterfield County. While the neighborhoods are adjacent, they do differ in scope and feel, and compliment not only each other, but the overall exclusivity of the Old Gun Road corridor as well.
Bellona Arsenal is a unique neighborhood within the Richmond marketplace as most of the homes have River access and enough acreage for equestrian purposes. It has fewer home sites than Clark’s Forge and a higher degree of diversity in the architecture of the homes, many of which can literally be described as mini-estates. Homes in Bellona Arsenal have fetched some of the highest prices in all of Chesterfield.
Clark’s Forge, developed in the later 1990’s/early 2000’s, is a striking neighborhood of large lots (1-2 acres) set over rolling topography with a blend of architectural styles common to the period. The entry feature, a simple wooden fence, along with well placed landscaping and highly manicured lawns, augments the idyllic retreat feel of the neighborhood.
