After a lull for a few years, development of new homes within Glenmore is now beginning to pick up. Here is a summary of what's happening:
This triangular section lies to the north-east of Pendower Lane, and is being marketed as Pendower Heights
. The land was bought in 2007 by Glenmore Associates from the Livengood family, then sold this year to Piedmont Realty and Construction. Piedmont is a well-established local builder of quality homes, owned by ex-resident Drew Holzwarth. The section encompasses 25 acres, and will include 43 home-sites, with a small central park of native hardwoods. Piedmont has built a home in Cambridge Hill Lane which is being using as a temporary sales office and show home, but will soon be moving into the newly built show home within Pendower Heights itself. Ex-resident Jodi Mills is one of the realtors working from this location as selling agent. The homes will range from 2,100 to 3,800 square feet.
This rectangular section lies immediately to the east of Carroll Creek, and is bordered on the east by the new loop road connecting Farringdon Road at the north end to the original Carroll Creek road at the south end. The property was bought from the Leake family by Glenmore Associates in 2005, and they still own it. Although the property is zoned for over 100 lots, no more than 50 can be developed without constructing a new crossing over the creek connecting the new loop road with Carroll Creek Road to VDOT standards. Glenmore Associates has announced that they have an agreement with NVHomes to build homes on these lots, starting with the 8 lots nearest to the southern end which face directly onto the loop road. NVHomes
is a large developer of quality homes in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and northern Virginia. They plan to construct a show home on one of these sites within the next few weeks.
The four home-sites at the most northern end, nearest to the existing Farringdon Road, have been sold by Glenmore Associates to Central Virginia Real Estate Ventures LLC, owned by ex-resident Neal Sansovich. As reported previously, Neal is applying for a re-zoning to incorporate an adjacent Running Deer Road lot, which would add a fifth home-site, but this requires a public hearing and Board of Supervisors approval, since it would extend the boundary of the existing development into rural zoned area. Neal hopes to start building homes on these sites this fall.Glen Oaks Section
Glen Oaks is the large rural section to the east and south of Leake, comprising approximately 584 acres, much of it the on other side of Limestone pond, and has several different owners. The largest parcel is The Preserve,
120 acres divided into 14 estate-sized lots ranging from 5 to 21 acres, sitting immediately opposite the Leake area. This is owned and being developed by Sansovich Development LLC, also under the ownership of Neal Sansovich.
The large Glen Oaks parcels to the south of the Preserve (not shown on this map) are each intended for a single residence. These include two farm-sized lots in excess of 100 acres each, two 21-acre lots, and four lots between 5 and 7 acres. Although Glen Oaks is all part of Glenmore, it lies outside of the county's growth area, and is not serviced by county water or sewer. Glen Oaks also has its own Supplemental Declaration which provides more relaxed standards of architecture, usage, and appearance consistent with estate-sized lots.
