Gloucester VA Real Estate “Timberneck Farm” Waterfront

Timberneck Farm a planned unit development proposal gets Gloucester Co. VA planners’ backing.
The Gloucester Planning Commission unanimously agreed last Thursday to recommend that the board of supervisors approve an application for Timberneck Farm  an 1000 acre development that will create a 49-lot planned gated community The rezoning application will now be sent to the board of supervisors, who will have until August 2009 to decide on approval.

A local resident , who grew up near the farm, was impressed with the “high tech, high-value development” planned for the site.

Another neighbor said that the proposed project is the next best thing to leaving the land as it is. “This is one of the most well planned subdivisions of property I’ve ever witnessed,”

During the commission’s discussion of the proposal, members generally agreed that the project is “a model development.”

“This is the first time I’ve seen a subdivision that actually preserved the goals of the comprehensive plan,” said Keith Belvin. “There’s some growth, but it’s within the capacity of the county.”

 The developer is proposing  primary residences of between 3,500 and 7,500 square feet per lot, but a maximum of two guest houses of up to 2,500 square feet each per lot. Other possible buildings mentioned by the developer would be detached garages, office, studio, tool sheds, workshops, storage shed, pump house, barns, stables, pens, tennis courts, pools, bath houses, gymnasiums, potting sheds, cabanas, gazebos, conservatories, pergolas, wells, etc.


Home prices are to average around $1 million. Timberneck Farm is bordered by Timberneck and Cedar Bush creeks. Most of the wooded lots will be water-view or waterfront. Piers will be allowed to be built on the waterfront lots while a community pier will be built for other lot owners. There maybe as many as 20 slips on the community pier along with an area for boat launching.

A protected easement in the interior of the community will continue to be farmed in winter wheat, corn and soybeans using a no-till method, Homes will encircle the property that will continue to be farmed, with other sections planted in pine forest.

The developer plans to give the Catlett Islands, which are the farthest points into the river, to the Virginia Institute of Marine Science for preservation and study, and to ensure they won’t be developed, he said.

It is estimated that lots would go from $400,000 to up to $1.5 million for a 14-acre parcel where Timberneck Hall sits near the confluence of Timberneck Creek and the York River.

Home prices should range from $800,000 to $1.2 million+

Equestrian trails and facilities are also going to be offered as part of the development.
