The former owner of this historic Mirador estate in Albermarle County, VA was an officer in the War of 1812. In 1910 his grandson, also a military officer, replicated the home, on a smaller scale, in Hampton Roads.
Today that home (Mirador on the Road) is a Valor Village residence. Our commitment to preserving its original architectural features honors the legacy of the generations of veterans who upheld the family's time-honored tradition of military service. Over 100 family members served, two of whom were POWs.
The peaceful location is enhanced by the tranquil water view. What better respite spot for powering-up than the house that bravery built?
Military family members have waited, worried, and sacrificed in the shadows. When factors resulting in incarceration disrupt their veteran's transition home, Valor Village helps to keep the "family first" circle unbroken, as together they courageously overcome challenges of the present to secure a fulfilling future.
