Spring Homearama revisits Culpepper Landing

Spring Homearama is fast approaching, so mark your calendars now to join Tidewater Builders Association as we return to Chesapeake’s Culpepper Landing June 16-July 1, 2012. Culpepper Landing, which was the site of the 2009 Homearama, is a blend of single- and multi-family homes and natural recreation spaces featuring sidewalks, porches and walking areas.

“We are excited to host Homearama for the second time at Culpepper Landing,” said developer Tm Culpepper, vice president of Robinson Development Group. “It provides us a unique opportunity to showcase the current trends and designs in custom homebuilding. With the completion of our aquatic center, as well as our new row house and villas product, it also gives us the opportunity to showcase the amenities of Culpepper Landing, as well as the fact that we have homes at prices to fit any budget.”

When Culpepper Landing last hosted Homearama, the mixed-use traditional development was just breaking ground. It featured 12 single-family homes ranging from the mid-$300,000s to the low $500,000’s. The community also features 150 acres of conservation area adjacent to the Great Dismal Swamp.

“When we were last there, the community was just getting started. Now, it’s home to 112 families,” said S.L. “Sam” Cohen, President of Tidewater Builders Association. Cohen built in the 2009 Homearama and also is building in the upcoming show. “We think visitors will really love how this community has grown and now includes row houses, apartments, parks, a pool, walking trails and much more. And with homes starting in the $350,000s, there is a home for every budget in this show.”

Culpepper Landing sits on the shores of the Great Dismal Swamp Canal and offers access to many activities from canoeing to recreational boating along the Intracoastal Waterway and Lake Drummond. Other amenities of the community include hiking, biking and bird watching. When complete, Culpepper Landing will also feature a mercantile district with shops and a large assortment of public squares and pocket parks, providing residents with plenty of places to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

To date, there are eight builders in the show, including: Chip Iuliano of ABT Custom Homes, Chesapeake; Ken Cohen of Cohen Homes, Virginia Beach; Michael Brunick and John Reddecliff of Definitive Homes, Virginia Beach; Sam Cohen of Joey Corp., Chesapeake; Les Ore of Les Ore Construction, Chesapeake; Jimmy Richardson and Edward Hewitt of Richardson Homes/Viridian Homes, Norfolk; Steve, Stephen and Alex Quick of Stephen Alexander Homes, Chesapeake; and T.E. Jones of Vintage Homes, Chesapeake.

The custom home showcase featuring fully furnished and landscaped homes also will include some innovative theme homes, including The Made in America House by Vintage Homes; The Hampton Roads Magazine House build by Stephen Alexander Homes; The City of Chesapeake House by Les Ore Construction; and The Intercoastal House built by Definitive Homes.

Limited lots are still available for those interested in building in the show. Please contact Teresa Howell at (757) 305-9062. For more information on the show, please visit homearama.tv or call (757) 420-2434.
