Looking for suggestions for areas between Lynchburg and Charlottesville to move to. No children so schools are not a concern. We have family in Lynchburg and Bedford and want to be close to them and UVA. Looking in this area because need to be close to UVA because of medical reasons.
Looking for a place where we could buy at least 5 acres with house for around $200,000.
Any suggestions on areas to look would be appreciated.

You don't really have a great many options although I certainly don't know all the small areas/towns in between the 2 locations. I would consider Staunton although I know it's not in the middle. It's closer to UVA. UVA area will likely be too expensive for your budget but maybe retaining real estate agents in a few locations, spaced out of course, might help.

Lovingston or Amherst. Both are small and reasonably affordable. Amherst might have a bit of an edge as it is a tad bigger and has a nice small college with a decent selection of cultural activities. I think you would find some decent offerings- size and price- in both. Staunton is nice, but further than either of my suggestions, and that much further from Lynchburg or Bedford.

Look from North Garden in Albemarle to Amherst/Madison Height's along rt. 29.
Nelson and Amherst county have a variety of home types, acreage, and pros and cons.
Hard to know without more idea from you as to your needs/wants.
200K with 5 acres and newish home/not a trailer or older needing regular work will be difficult.
The further back from 29 and the steeper the land will drive the price up or down depending.
route 151 has places as well but would be more expensive I think

Does it need to be UVA? Have you considered Duke?
