Middlesex purchases office buildings

by Tom Chillemi

The Middlesex County Board of Supervisors has purchased 1.7 acres that adjoin the Middlesex Courthouse property in Saluda. The purchase was announced at the board’s January 2 meeting.

The deed dated December 19, 2018 states the county paid $690,000 for the parcel, which has an assessed value of $682,000. 

The parcel is located on Bowden Street and just east of the Middlesex Courthouse and the Middle Peninsula Regional Security Center.

Grantors selling the property to the county were Betty W. Bristow, surviving spouse of Charles M. Bristow Jr.; and William D. Edwards Jr. and Rachel P. Edwards, the trustees of the Nanba-wan Sai Trust of the late Walter B. Hurley Jr.

Located on the parcel is the Saluda Professional Center with two buildings housing the Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission and the Middle Peninsula-Northern Neck Community Services Board offices.

The parcel also contains an older house, which had been used as the office of the Middlesex Commonwealth’s Attorney and business rentals.

Middlesex County Administrator Matt Walker said the county has no immediate plans for the offices and they will continue to be used by the occupants. The parcel also contains vacant land.
