Chickahominy Falls: A unique 55-plus community mixes farm and home

Hanover VA-The Barn & New Sales Center Are Now Open at Chickahominy Falls

Imagine a 55-plus community offering low-maintenance, one-floor living and resort-style amenities geared to an active-adult lifestyle. Now imagine that community with a working farm at its core. That’s the concept behind Chickahominy Falls, now under construction in Hanover County, Virginia.

“Agrihoods,” which combine sustainable farming with residential communities, are popping up in the United States and Canada.

Chickahominy Falls, a 180-acre site near the intersection of U.S. Route 1 and Cedar Lane, will be the first one in central Virginia and the only one in the U.S. focused on healthy living and a sustainable lifestyle for 55-plus homebuyers and residents.

Two builders – Richmond-based Cornerstone Homes and Henrico County-based StyleCraft Homes – have committed to construct all the community’s homes.

Cornerstone Homes, a sister company of The Crescent Group, has exclusively built 55-plus communities since its founding in 2001. It will build 316 homes in Chickahominy Falls.

StyleCraft Homes, which has built in five other 55-plus communities, will build 84 homes in Chickahominy Falls.

When it’s built out, Chickahominy Falls will have 400 homes in eight distinct neighborhoods.

All the homes, which will include carriage homes and cottages, will offer low-maintenance, one-floor living. Architectural styles will include Farmhouse and Craftsman.

Sizes for Cornerstone’s homes will range from 1,683 to 3,114 square feet. Prices will range from the $360,000s to $400,000s, depending on the floor plan and selected elevation.

StyleCraft’s homes will range from 1,900 to 2,500 square feet, with prices starting “from the $340,000s to $360,000s, depending on the floor plan and selected structural options.

Come walk the ground, see homes going vertical, and experience our attention to detail firsthand at greater Richmond’s first 55+ agri-community.

In addition to the farm and orchard, amenities will include a multipurpose building called The Barn will serve as the community center hosting community gatherings. Designed to be an educational facility, it will include a conference area and workshop, industrial-sized kitchen, canning facilities and outdoor dining spaces.
