The final dozen pieces of a massive Midlothian community are being put to market.
Local homebuilder HHHunt has started construction on the remaining section of Armistead Village, the last neighborhood in the 525-acre Villages at Charter Colony development near Route 288.
Most of Armistead Village has been built in the past few years, but HHHunt held onto 12 home sites until now, said Art McGivern, a sales executive with the company.
“It is the last chapter of Charter Colony,” McGivern said.
The 2,200- to 3,400-square-foot houses will be built around a man-made lake scheduled to be installed this fall, McGivern said. Eleven of the lots – including one that’s already been purchased – will back up to the water.
The houses start around $340,000 and will be similar to other houses in Armistead Village. The first spec house is already under construction. Homebuyers can select plans that include walk-out basements and finished third floors.
HHHunt budgeted $1.9 million to build the Armistead Village section, McGivern said. The company just sold the last lots in Ashton Village, the community’s previous section.
“The demand was high enough, it sold out in rapid pace,” McGivern said.
McGivern said the first lots in the Villages of Charter Colony were sold in 2003. HHHunt Communities developed the property, located at the intersection of Charter Colony Parkway and Charter Club Drive off Route 288.
The master-planned community includes 1,957 units, broken down into 973 single-family houses, 98 townhouses, 474 condos, 113 senior apartments, 173 assisted living units and 126 apartments.
The nearby area has been the target of other large projects in recent months. A Martin’s grocery store is under construction in the Charter Colony shopping center, and Bon Secours recently announced that it will open a convenient care clinic within the store.
The company also will build new houses in Fox Creek, another large development not far from Charter Colony.
