Halifax County offers a superior quality of life that combines the benefits of small-town living with the amenities of a major metropolitan area. People are drawn here because of the many housing choices, moderate climate, diverse cultural and entertainment offerings, and quality healthcare – where the cost of living is low and the quality of life is high.
No matter where you want to live or what style of house you want to live in, it is easy to feel right at home. With a large variety of housing options to choose from, settling into one of our communities is simple. You'll find everything from Antebellum estates to modern condominiums. If a traditional middle class house is more your style, you'll find that too, whether inside town limits or in the countryside.
There is an abundance of traditional middle class neighborhoods throughout the Roanoke Valley. The houses are available in a variety of sizes, styles and price ranges. Neighborhoods are well kept and safe for children to play. There are plenty of apartments and condominiums of all sizes and price ranges for those who are looking for a living space that is easy to manage. If rural living is more appealing to you, some areas of Halifax County provide the opportunity to settle down on a farm and enjoy a leisurely pace.
