The New Albany Experience


New Albany is unlike any community that has come before.

It begins with the details. The hundreds of details that define New Albany, and set it apart.

Some of them are obvious. Like the 40 miles of white fencing, or the 15-mile network of leisure trails. Others are less so. The design of a sign or mailbox. The curve of a street. A marvelous chimney brick detail. Collectively, they make New Albany New Albany.

We ask that you not think of New Albany as a development. By today’s standards, a development is a huge tract of housing patched together at random. New Albany could not be farther from that reality.

We’ve set aside green spaces between neighborhoods. Parks for children. Wooded acres. Meadows perfect for a game of catch, or watching the sun set. One of the finest championship golf courses in the nation.

The area is also home to an active historical society. An arts council. A variety of churches and synagogues. It all adds up to a very special quality of life.

Our clubhouse is spectacular.

A Georgian manor filled with antique treasures from around the world. It is grand, yet warm and inviting. And when it’s time to play, you have a myriad of options. Like the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus championship golf course. It’s extraordinarily beautiful, with several holes having the open feel of the Scottish links, and others the lush look of the Carolinas.

The Club features a world-class tennis facility, including both grass and clay playing surfaces, along with a championship croquet course. There are two Olympic-sized swimming pools, as well as exercise and workout rooms that are comparable to the finest spas.

In New Albany, there is a great respect for family and community. It exists in every aspect of life here. In the understanding that this is unlike any other place you could choose to live. And in the pride you can take in calling New Albany home.

Our Neighborhoods

New Albany is a series of neighborhoods.

One has the feeling of a compact European village. Another, a collection of country estates. Each works in relationship to the land, each to each other. Each neighborhood has its own distinct qualities, yet they all share one thing. Georgian architecture.

It is the perfect rural statement, in succinct harmony with the land, and it was the obvious choice for New Albany. Homes with large windows that invite the outside in. Classic designs that elevate every home. A traditional style and grace that creates the feeling New Albany has been here always.

That sense of history and permanence can be found throughout New Albany’s neighborhoods. Around every corner. In the smallest of details. Look closely. You’ll see archways created with hand-molded brick. Clapboard siding. The subtle glow of a street lantern.

Even the names of the neighborhoods are steeped in history. Wiveliscombe, Tiverton, Clivdon Mews. Many were inspired by classic English villages or grand manor homes in Tidewater, Virginia.
