Community. It’s amazing how many of my buyer clients identify “community” as one of the top three criteria they’re looking for. We’re aiming to build that in a new neighborhood in Charlottesville.
My clients have heard me talk about this “coming neighborhood” for about two years; now dirt is finally moving, roads are going in, utilities are being run and house plans are being finalized.
Lochlyn Hill is a new neighborhood in Charlottesville – 5 minutes to downtown Charlottesville by car, 15 minutes or so by bicycle, with only local (mostly small) builders, with the focus being community and building homes. We’re focusing on building homes – and community – instead of more homes, our goal is to authentically and organically build a neighborhood.
Curious? I’ve posted a FAQ below, but thought you might be surprised (I was) by the view at the entrance to the neighborhood.
Disclosure: I’m a real estate agent. I’m marketing the neighborhood. If you’re interested in the neighborhood, please email or call me – 434-242-7140. There’s a lot more to tell about this neighborhood and we’re going to keep writing the story.
Where is it? Located off of Rio Road, between Pen Park and Treesdale, just off of Vegas Court.
How many homes? Less than 180. First phase will be 14 single family + 5 townhomes.
Timeframe? They’re pushing dirt now and we expect to be delivering homes in Summer/Fall 2014
Price point? Each builder is finalizing floorplans and styles, but we expect the price points to be in the $400k to $600k range.
Another neighborhood off of Rio? Really? What’s special about this neighborhood?
For starters, only local, mostly small builders will be building in Lochlyn Hill. There won’t be any amenities but there will be a central green that will be partially level and partially rolling hills. Some of it will be programmed/defined and the rest will be open, natural area.
Lot sizes? A little bit bigger than Belvedere, keeping in line with the demands of the localities.
Update 24 April 2014 – We went to Lochlyn Hill yesterday; it’s amazing how fast they are moving.
