Cost of Living

Virginia is known to be a tax-friendly state for retirees. Residents who are 65 and up qualify for certain tax breaks, especially when they own homes. Social Security benefits and retirement income are exempt from taxes too. Virginia sales tax is currently at 5.3 percent, and towns like Lansdowne add on another 1 percent to that. Items like grocery foods and some essential personal items are taxes at a lower rate, of 2.5 percent.

Lansdowne’s cost of living is higher than state and national averages, likely because of the higher housing costs. Though the cost for utilities may be lower than in other areas, costs for groceries and transportation are also higher.

Cadence at Lansdowne Amenities

Cadence at Lansdowne is geared towards active adults and also pet lovers. The neighborhood will have its own dog park and pet station, and there will also be an outdoor amphitheater, a grilling and picnic pavilion, and walking trails on the grounds. Other outdoor amenities will include a multisport court, plus a pickleball court. Homeowners will be able to play competitively or just for fun with their friends and neighbors.

It’s near the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, an area of historic interest and breathtaking natural beauty. This is home to the Appalachian Trail, the Natural Bridge, and countless hiking, biking, and watersports activities.

Being near the Potomac River also has its perks, with outdoor riverfront recreation areas like the Elizabeth Mills Riverfront Park and the River Creek Golf Club.
