Magnolia Green, a 2,000-acre, master-planned community in Chesterfield County, has earned accolades since its first home was built in early 2008. It was named Best New Homes Community in the Richmond Times-Dispatch last year, and Golf Digest named its golf course the eighth-best new course in North America in 2015.
In addition, the development, which is located at the intersection of Hull Street Road and Magnolia Green Parkway, has twice hosted Richmond Homearama, a regional show that highlights building trends and standout custom home designs.
But Magnolia Green’s most successful residential product is actually the low-maintenance town home. And it’s about to get more.
Richmond-based HHHunt Homes began construction in the development’s new Valhalla neighborhood in August, and it expects to finish work on 13 town homes by the end of December. It opened two model town homes earlier this month.
Valhalla – which is named after a golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus, like every neighborhood in Magnolia Green – will be the second town home neighborhood in the community. HHHunt Homes wrapped up sales in the first one, Wynstone Park, earlier this year, and it was popular among buyers.
“Wynstone Park was the fastest selling subdivision in Magnolia Green,” said Ashley Harris, a new home advisor with HHHunt Homes.
Wynstone Park has 160 town homes. Valhalla will have 88 town homes, built in two sections. The first section will have 46 town homes, and the second will have 42.
“We will start construction on the second section after finishing the first,” Harris said.
Buyers can choose from six different floor plans in Valhalla, including two that have the option of adding a third story. Sizes range from 1,652 to 2,446 square feet. The units’ front elevation is a Farmhouse style that is new and distinct from the elevations used in Wynstone Park. All the units will have private, wooded homesites and either one- or two-car garages.
“Base prices range from $259,950 up to $307,950, and this pricing includes several designer features like granite kitchen countertops, stainless-steel appliances, recessed lighting, hardwood flooring and ceramic-tile owner’s bath flooring,” Harris said.
HHHunt Homes has already sold nine units.
Valhalla’s low-maintenance lifestyle and the development’s resort-style amenities are driving sales, Harris said.
Magnolia Green’s amenities include an 18-hole championship golf course and an aquatic center with four swimming pools. In addition, the community’s Arbor Walk has a swimming pool, a basketball court, a sand volleyball court and a multipurpose field. A tennis facility with eight lighted tennis courts and two pickle ball courts will open in the spring.
“Valhalla is situated directly across the street from the Magnolia Green Golf clubhouse and in close proximity to the pools, walking trails and future tennis facility,” Harris said.
Given the product’s success, Valhalla is unlikely to be the last town home neighborhood to be built in Magnolia Green.
“We’ll probably have one more parcel with town homes in the future,” Page said. “Town homes have been our most successful product – we sold 50 last year, the most of any product variety. They have been extremely successful.”
