Our business isn’t just about building your perfect home. It’s about building community, too. As an independent Charlottesville-based builder since 1999, Southern Development Homes is committed to bolstering our local economy with what we call the Homegrown Difference: choosing to work with local tradesmen and women who take pride in every detail.
We understand that your home-building experience is as unique as the community we share. That’s why your satisfaction is our top priority from your first visit to a model home to the moment you receive your keys and long after. In fact, 99% of our customers tell their friends and family they would build with us again, proof-positive that our focus on long-lasting relationships, customer service and Quality Comes Standard design practices create a best-in-class experience for you.
That experience includes a brighter bottom line thanks to our suite of energy-efficient options. All of our newly built EcoSmart homes are third-party tested for energy efficiency and given a HERS Index score. On average they use 30-44% less than the average new home.

How does Southern Development Homes Build your Home?
For comfort… Every Southern Development home is designed for ease of living. That means practical floor plans, personalized design details, and quality construction that last for decades.
For the future…We take superior construction to the next level with what we call conscious building. We start with smart design choices that translate into durability and energy efficiency. Daily site inspections and 100-point checklists ensure your home meets the highest levels of quality and sustainability. Finally, responsible building practices – including recycling our construction waste at a local facility that we helped create – mean that you can feel good about the process from start to finish. The result is an investment that is both solid and sustainable, benefiting you and our area for generations to come.
For the community… Our community roots run deep. As an independent local builder, we choose to work with only the best local trade partners. Our company’s local reputation is rock solid, and we are proud of the contributions we make to our area year after year.
