South Chesterfield

Still mostly rural properties, the overall landscape of South Chesterfield is changing rapidly. New roads have connected it to the metro area and development is occurring along those routes. But if you want rural, you can still find it. You just have to look a little bit harder.

Key Features

Rural, but Not Isolated: If your heart is in the outdoors, but you want excellent infrastructure, lower tax rates, and a range of newer construction options, South Chesterfield may be the place for you.

Activity Abounds: South Chesterfield boasts more than 50 park and athletic facilities for the adventure seeking kayaker, woodland hiker, and dedicated athlete alike. From feeding the giraffes at the region's only zoo to a family game of disc golf at Goyne Park, everyone will find something they love.
