Augusta County Real Estate Scenic Shenandoah Valley
Augusta County offers scenic views, mountains and lakes, vineyards and farms, and more. As the second-largest county in Virginia, Augusta has a lot to offer both residents and visitors. Beyond the independent cities of Staunton and Waynesboro, Augusta County has many appealing small towns and communities to choose from including:
- Churchville: A small community of about 200 people, with many of the houses being older with a charming farmhouse or historic architectural style.
- Craigsville: Part of the Staunton-Waynesboro metro area, Craigsville is a town of about 900 people off of Route 42. The homes are modest in size with large yards or acreage and a suburban feel. Craigsville is located adjacent to the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest.
- Fishersville: One of the largest towns in the metro area, Fishersville is located between Staunton and Waynesboro, giving its residents plenty of employment opportunities in both cities. The homes here tend to be newer construction, built since the 1990’s.
- Stuarts Draft: Stuarts Draft’s seven warehouses/factories make it a local employment hub. Some major employers include Target, Hershey, and Little Debbie. You can find just about any type of home here, from older, farmhouse style to newly constructed luxury residences.

- Western Augusta County: Located about a half-hour from Staunton, living in West Augusta or Deerfield generally means privacy, large lots, forest views, and easy access to outdoor activities. In addition to home listings, you can find land lots for sale to build your dream home.
