Homearama 2009 at Culpepper Landing

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

I’m going to get back to the history of Culpepper Landing but I digress to bring you up to date on what’s happening in the neighborhood.

This has been a time to remember for us the Culpepper Team…. we had Homearama 2009 at the site and the good news is of the 12 showcase homes we currently have 8 under contract (some families moved in right after the show)! We had 61,000 visitors come visit our neighborhood and view our homes.  Our on site traffic has been terrific with folks coming back for a second look and since the show we’ve contracted to build a few more homes.   The first row homes now have homeowner’s moving in and our neighborhood is really taking shape.  Soon the Mercantile District will start taking shape we already have folks interested in opening businesses there.   I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

     Please visit the web site if you would like to see virtual tours of the homes in homearama, in case you couldn’t make it to the show.  

    The Thanksgiving House, (Camellia floor plan) built by Definitive Homes  won the People’s Choice Award.  This was a one story floor plan with a room over the garage.   A candle wall in the family room, was the first I had ever seen.  A deep inviting porch, found visitors sitting on the porch enjoying a moment of rest.  Many times I’d come out to hear someone say, ” Now, we just need a cool drink  and I could sit here all day.”    The double sided fireplace which warmed both family room and screened porch side porch was another crowd pleaser.     This is an Earth Craft certified home.  In fact all homes Definitive Homes build in Culpepper Landing will be  EarthCraft  Certified.

EarthCraft Virginia provides a certification process for single family and multifamilyprojects. It serves as a blueprint for healthy, comfortable homes that reduces utility bills and protects the environment. EarthCraft House is your best assurance for a quality home.   (Taken from the EarthCraft web site).

Till the next time …. Peace
