Church Square Will Change How You Think About 55+ Neighborhoods!

It’s springtime in Smithfield, VA and there is so much going on only steps away from from our newest active adult communities! Just off North Church Street, Cornerstone Homes, Virginia’s exclusive builder of 55+ communities, is actively building the area’s most highly sought-after boutique-style community, Church Square. There are NINE homes available for summer move-in, and the community’s revitalized amenities are ready for fun in the sun. 

Active adult, low-maintenance living in the heart of downtown Smithfield

Prospective buyers are invited to come explore Church Square’s carefree lifestyle and start enjoying low-maintenance living even sooner! No matter which of the unique farmhouse-style villa homes they choose, Cornerstone’s hallmark single-level designs – with thoughtful living spaces, large entertaining kitchens, private outdoor spaces, and well-appointed owner’s retreats – are just what they’re looking for.

Resident Ginny Soul commented how happy the existing homeowners are to have a new developer on board. “The progress we're seeing with Cornerstone's new homes is amazing. All your personnel out here have also been wonderful. Love Kirsten's Tuesdays at Two videos and how much work you put into our Clubhouse.” After years of slow progress Cornerstone Homes is not wasting anytime to make their mark on Church Square.


One of the most exciting developments is that after months of renovations, the Clubhouse at Church Square is now open. A variety of outdoor recreation options have been added, including an activity lawn and a firepit area. Inside the 3,000-square foot clubhouse, current homeowners love the great room’s large screen TV and gas fireplace. It’s become a natural place to gather, relax, and wind down. Adding to the homey feeling, residents are staying active in the new fitness room, while the large dining room, with its catering kitchen, offers plenty of room for club meetings, card games, and community events.

These welcoming indoor spaces have been joined by newly expanded great outdoor spaces, like the dining patio with its grilling station, and the garden patio with its outdoor fireplace. Just in time for the warmer days ahead, the resort-style swimming pool and sun deck are accompanied by umbrella tables, chaise lounges, and large colorful planter pots. Our homeowners love this comfortable, garden-inspired spot. And over on the activity lawn, friends and neighbors enjoy games before dinner on the patio. 

Realtors are invited to a lunch event on Tuesday, May 17th from 12 to 2 pm, to learn more about the community and see our homes under construction. On Saturday, May 21st, prospective homeowners are invited to a Dusty Boots event from 11 am to 1 pm, to tour homes under construction and learn more about living in this active adult community. 

“As Virginia's foremost expert in active adult living, Cornerstone Homes has revitalized Church Square so that it reflects our mission of creating homes and communities dedicated to the wellness, connection, and lifestyle of people 55+,” says Cornerstone Homes’ president, Roger Glover.

“No other community in the Smithfield area has the cozy, welcoming vibe of Church Square,” continues Mr. Glover. “Our homeowners enjoy the benefits of being close to everything in the heart of downtown Smithfield, along with the freedom of the low-maintenance lifestyle, and the neighborly feeling of living in a Cornerstone community.”
