Homerama Starts today in Chesapeake VA

image14Homearama, the  TBA (Tidewater Builders Association’s) semiannual showcase of new homes, starts today 6/16/2012 @  the Culpepper Landing community in Chesapeake, Virginia.

Culpepper Landing previously hosted the Fall 2009 Homearama and featured 12 homes, ranging in price from about $350,000 to more than $500,000.

Lot prices range from $100,000 to $125,000. 

Cottage-plan-Vintage-Homes-Culpepper[1]Three of the eight houses in the bi-annual showcase of homes put on by Tidewater Builders Association have already sold.

Culpepper Landing’s architectural style – cottage-style homes and inviting front porches – recalls a time when people socialized with their neighbors, frequented nearby shopping centers and stuck close to home for family and fun.

People are also enjoying the neighborhood’s price-point. When complete, Culpepper Landing will feature 740 single-family homes, 355 row houses, villas and multi-family homes, along with 40,000 square feet of commercial space. Single-family homes, which average 2,580 square feet, range from the high $200,000s to the mid-$500,000s.

Since 2009 much has changed in this 488-acre neighborhood near the historic village of Deep Creek, the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Preserve, the Intracoastal Waterway and a 160-acre preservation area.

In addition to the burgeoning population, more amenities have opened, including the aquatic center and clubhouse.

Other draws include a water park, a work-out room, a dog park, children’s play areas, nature trails and 16 planned pocket parks and a community garden center.
