"Hanover County Board of Supervisors gave its unanimous final approval to Cornerstone Homes' Chickahominy Falls community!!
"A NEW VISION FOR LIFE ON THE FARM WILL SOON BECOME A REALITY"
Imagine a typical residential community that is carved out of existing farmland. Only this one is not typical at all !! At Chickahominy Falls, we envision life for empty nesters, retirees, and millennials connecting through community life, health, environment, education, sustainability, and history.
Chickhominy Falls will be Hanover County and Richmond's first residential community that will blend suburban clubhouse living with organic farming, producing fresh, local, healthy fruits, veggies, and foods while creating a wonderful and unique outdoor amenity for the residents.
Chickahominy Falls will feature up to 400 homes on about 150 acres off Cedar Lane and Holly Hill Road, backing up to the Chickahominy River. Although the majority of the community will include retirees/empty nesters 55 and up, there will also be homes designed for over 100 millennial and/or young families. This is a unique opportunity to bring different generations together to share experiences, to enjoy active outdoor activities and healthier choices of food, and to connect with what has made living in Hanover County special.
A professionally managed farm will be an integral part of this community. "Farm-lets" or "Pocket-gardens" will be dotted throughout residential neighborhoods as part of Cornerstone's commitment to significant and unique open spaces. There will also be a Farm House, farmer's maket area, co-ops with local farmers, event space, educational opportunities for internships and local school field trips, canning opportunities, and of course, areas for gatherings for feasts with the community residents. And don't forget the clubhouse and pool, green spaces and play spaces that bring neighbors together.
When you roll back the barn door on the Farm, the outdoor amenities at Chickahominy Falls are boundless and unmatched anywhere else in Richmond: special spaces for gardening, beekeeping and bird watching; rivers edge walks and access; fishing in ponds and the Chickahominy River; an elaborate system of walking trails and exercise stations for all residents; a special clubhouse and pool, pocket parks, outdoor sitting and gathering retreat spaces for 55-plus residents, and open play fields, playgrounds and tot lots for millennial and young families. Imagine a grandmother biking from the Farm with her granddaughter, toting the carrots they picked together as the key ingredient to the birthday cake they will make for Mom!!!!
Homes will be clustered into small villages and connected by a network of meandering walking/biking trails, creating a cohesive neighborhood community. Environmenal preservation and sustainability are key to the low-impact community plan. State-of-the-art conservation practices will protect mature hardwoods, watersheds and the river.
Site planning and construction on the site will begin late this year.
