761 homes moving toward construction at Clevenger’s

Site work continues for development of Clevenger’s Village at Routes 211 and 229 about eight miles west of Warrenton.
The village center concept was conceived with the idea that concentrating growth in appropriate locations would help preserve the rural character of Culpeper County. The area is already served with public water and sewer, and as such, it is an appropriate location for some concentration of residential development.
— Board of supervisors Chairman Gary Deal

Development of more than 700 homes, anchored near the edges of Fauquier, Culpeper and Rappahannock counties, continues to make progress toward becoming a reality.

Florida-based home construction company Lennar Corp. in August broke ground on its first section of “Stonehaven,” eight miles west of Warrenton at 18163 Golf Lane near Jeffersonton.

While there was once a sign on the property indicating homes would become available last fall, Lennar Vice President for Communications Danielle Tocco said, “Sales for three collections of single-family homes will begin in mid-to-late December from a sales trailer on Golf Lane prior to starting construction on our first section of single-family homes.”

The development of the wooded Clevenger’s Corner site, at Rixeyville Road and Lee Highway, has been up in the air since 2005, when the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors rezoned the property. Centex Homes purchased the Clevenger’s Village project that year but never developed the property in the wake of the housing market collapse. Centex sold to Pulte Homes in 2014, and Saadeh Partners bought Clevenger's Village in August 2018.

Based in Miami, Lennar last February bought the 1,440 acres for $20.7 million from Saddeh Financial LL C of Woodbridge, according to county real estate records. Founded in 1954, Lennar builds homes in 23 states across the country, including Pennsylvania, California and Texas.

Culpeper County’s Comprehensive Plan designates Clevenger’s Corner as a “village center,” board of supervisors Chairman Gary Deal noted.

“The village center concept was conceived with the idea that concentrating growth in appropriate locations would help preserve the rural character of Culpeper County,” Mr. Deal said. “The area is already served with public water and sewer, and as such, it is an appropriate location for some concentration of residential development.

“The project will also accommodate and trigger commercial development, which is positive from an economic standpoint.”

For decades, the potential development of Clevenger’s Corner has raised concerns in Fauquier — particularly about increased traffic on Route 211 and on Broadview Avenue in Warrenton.

Stonehaven will include 761 single-family homes and townhomes. Single-family homes prices will start “in the upper $400,000 range,” Ms. Tocco said. Townhome pricing has not been released.

General contractor SW Rodgers of Gainesville continues to prepare the site.

A commuter parking lot on Route 211 next to the development will remain open but eventually will move east on Lee Highway, Ms. Tocco said.
