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.

Homerama Delayed until June 2012

imageThe TBA ( Tidewater Builders Association announced)  that it is pushing back the dates of its spring Homearama showcase of new homes.

The event will now be held from June 16 to July 1, 2012 at Culpepper Landing in Chesapeake. The show was originally scheduled for May.

The event is being delayed to give builders more time to complete their homes. So far, eight builders have signed up to construct homes for the show.

 

With the spring show moving back to June, the organization will have only four months to prepare for the October 2012 Homearama show, which is planned for Norfolk’s East Beach community.

Twenty-eight years ago Hampton Roads builders took a chance and signed on for the first Homearama.

That event, held in Bayberry Woods in Chesapeake, started a tradition that annually draws thousands of visitors from across the region.

The event, which showcases the latest in architecture, home trends and designs, has its roots in Chesapeake. The show has found a home there 15 times during the history of Homearama.

This year is no exception: Culpepper Landing is in the heart of Deep Creek, nestled alongside the Great Dismal Swamp.

Sneak Peek @ Homerama 2009- Culpepper Landing Chesapeake, VA

homerama culpepper landing If you have blown off some of the previous home shows due to their excessive home prices you should plan on going this year. The builders in the area are finally staging a show with homes that a good majority of the population can afford.

On our way back from the Outer Banks we stopped in and took a few  a few pictures of the community.  It had just rained so please excuse the photo quality.

I have to say, I sell homes for a living and this is one of the first developments I have seen in recent times that would make me want to move there.

DSCN2388 I wish the developers of New Town had followed the direction of Culpepper Landing.  In New Town ( Williamsburg, VA ) Town homes are the predominant home style. Here in Culpepper Landing it’s the opposite with detached homes comprising over 80% of the housing offered. Both communities are TND ( Traditional Neighbor Developments) All homes will feature front porches and rear alley garages.

DSCN2398_editedThis year’s show is a departure from recent years in both the size of the homes and their prices. Amid one of the steepest housing declines in decades, show organizers late last year decided to downshift and focus on the middle range of prices.

Last year’s show featured homes starting at $1.2 million. This year, prices are from $349,900 to $540,600.

The strategy seems to have paid off so far, with six of the show’s homes already spoken for.

culpepper landing stephen alexander homesHomearama originally was scheduled for North Shore at Ridgely Manor, an upscale development in Virginia Beach. It was moved to Hampton Roads Crossing, a northern Suffolk development, then moved again to Culpepper Landing, a 488-acre project of Robinson Development Group between the edges of the Great Dismal Swamp and its canal.

The relocations put the squeeze on builders, who had about four months to get their homes ready.

Despite the smaller size, the homes in this year’s show feature many amenities seen in years past, such as tall vaulted ceilings, stone kitchen counters and pools.

Culpepper landing homerama Culpepper Landing is tucked away about two miles south of Interstate 64 in  Deep Creek, Chesapeake, VA .It is  a 488-acre project of the Robinson Development Group located between the edges of the Great Dismal Swamp and its canal. Homes prices in the community range from  $234,000 for a 1,400-square-foot town home and go up to a little more than $500,000.

The community  offers access to the Intracoastal Waterway and Lake Drummond. Residents can take full advantage of all the Great Dismal Swamp Canal and Wildlife Refuge have to offer. For those who wish to keep their feet dry, recreational options include hiking, biking, and bird watching as well as facilities for camping and picnicking.

The neighborhoods of Culpepper Landing will also feature a large assortment of open spaces,as pocket parks and village greens where neighbors get outside to spend time together developing a sense of community instead of being locked behind the ever present garage doors of the neighborhoods designed in a more conventional fashion. Also, the front porch, a traditional architecture element that at some point was left behind has re-emerged as a key element of design in Culpepper Landing homes.

If you click on the link it will take you to a brief photo tour of the community.

Homes in this years show  will range from $349,900 to $540,000, and four of the twelve  Homerama  homes have already sold.

The 12  homes will be on display to the public Oct. 3-18.
