Harrisonburg Neighborhood Tour: Blue Stone Hills

Blue Stone Hills, located on the hillside in Harrisonburg — behind Martin’s Grocery Store, Kohl’s, and Target — boasts some of the best views of the city (within city limits). This neighborhood is conveniently located to just about everything you could possibly need in Harrisonburg. Downtown is minutes down Route 33, otherwise known as Market Street, I-81 and JMU are convenient, and access to other parts of the Valley is easy. Blue Stone Hills is prime location for anyone who loves “city” life.

Homes in Blue Stone Hills vary in size from the modestly sized (yet usually very well kept and decorated) duplexes near the bottom of the hill to the stately, large homes toward the top of the hill. Most detached homes in this neighborhood are brick Colonial-style, and are highlighted by exquisite features. (I know of one that has an elevator!) Prices in this neighborhood range from the high $100Ks (for the attached homes) to somewhere in the $500Ks (or even higher) for the grander detached homes.

Blue Stone Hills is still considered a fairly new neighborhood, with homes being built anywhere from 1990 to present day. In fact, there are a few unimproved lots in Blue Stone Hills right now.
