Culpepper Landing

New Year, New Guild Members and a Look back…

Today was an absolutely gorgeous day at Culpepper Landing.  Our weather has turned cold and windy.  Still the neighbors were out walking the pooches, taking down the Christmas decorations and a few brave souls ventured out to view our homes.  We start this year on a high note as we finished up with six more sales in the neighborhood and a flurry of  folks moving in in time for Christmas and the New Year.

Simpson Builders, has come on board as a member of the Guild and soon we will have their first buyers moving into the community. In case you ventured out for Homearama, their home The Bright Idea Home, was House number 1 in the show.  Features included an office/ study area off the family room. Roomy porch, outdoor entertainment area, detached garage, mud room entrance to collect shoes, coats, etc.   Check out the virtual tour of this lovely home.   http://www.tourimaging.com/vt/House1/

Bill Ore, LLC.  builders of the award winning Christmas House, are in full swing with their Kristie Lynn, just started and already sold on Lot 67!  They have tweeked the Christmas House, also known as the Elderberry, the Elderberry II, features five bedrooms, with a master bedroom down,  wrap porch, detached garage with carport/entertainment area and a room over the detached garage which can be finished as well.  They also have a plan the Dawn Michelle which is a very nice cottage plan.  We have 33 families now living in Culpepper Landing.  It’s really been delightful for us all to see the neighborhood taking shape and the folks moving in.

I spoke with one of the neighbors as I left this evening, a quick exchange due to the cold,  turned the corner and watched a neighbor de-Christmasing.. as I call it. I turned my car from Robert Frost to Mill Creek Parkway and looked toward the Row Homes, which now have 8 residents living there.  Did I hear Auld Lange Syne, on the radio,  I found my thoughts to how a quick year for me in Culpepper.  From no homeowner’s to 33 living in the neighborhood in one year.  It was a whirlwind when we found in March, Homearama 2009 would be held there.  Ahhh, the opening night when I stood and looked down Dodd, all adorn with the “Homearama Homes,” truly,  Main Street, USA.   It’s a privilege to see this community grow.  The neighbors are as welcoming as the homes themselves. The empty nesters, the retirees, the new bride and groom, the folks welcoming their new baby.  It’s been a wonderful year at Culpepper Landing and I look forward to the year to come!
