Salisbury + Rosemont // Chesterfield County
The history of Salisbury began in the late 18th Century as a hunting lodge and preserve across the river from the Randolph family estate, the original owners of the site. An interesting fact is that Patrick Henry leased the 1500 acre site from the Randolph’s for a farm while he was governor of Virginia in 1784.
This same area that now encompasses the neighborhoods of Salisbury was acquired and developed starting in the mid 1960’s with additional parcels still being sporadically developed mostly along the Winterfield Road corridor on the rear of the property. Salisbury was one of the first communities of its scale (over 1500 acres) that was considered both upscale and mixed-use in Chesterfield County. Although most of the homes in Salisbury have been constructed, the area continues to be a top sought out location to live due to the top rated Chesterfield County schools and central location with Route 288 at its doorstep.
Homes in this area will range from 3000 square feet to over 7000 square feet and due to the size of the community and time frame of construction from the 1960’s through the 2000’s many different architectural styles common to the period of construction are available.
The private member owned Salisbury Country Club is centrally located in the community and offers 27 holes of golf a brand new Olympic style swimming pool and club house. The membership is derived from many sections of the greater Richmond area and membership is not conveyed by living in the community.
