We are proud to call Charlottesville our home. And when you call a place home, you care a little more, work a little harder, and do things a little differently. We not only build communities, but believe in the cultivating the health of our community by building responsibly and hiring locally. We call this the Homegrown Difference and it defines everything we do.
Our homes are more than bricks and beams. Sure, they feature practical floor plans and green building best practices. But that’s only how they are built. Our homes are designed for you to settle comfortably into everyday life, confidently knowing that your investment will stand up to the years of memories you have ahead of you.
We only want the best for our community, so we only work with the best local trade partners who live and work right here in Central Virginia. Unsurpassed knowledge, service and expertise result in quality homes we are proud to build. Our greatest reward is seeing satisfied customers and happy neighbors.
Building a new home should be a positive experience. From helping you choose a community to preparing for move-in day, we have Sales Consultants, Design Consultants, and Project Managers who are at your side every step of the way to ensure a streamlined building process. Important dates and decision points are clearly communicated so you always know where things stand. Bottom line: we want the planning and building your new home to be as enjoyable as living in it.
Few experiences are as personal as building a home. By providing all tools and support you need we ensure you can create a home that is true to your vision. Our Design Center – the area’s first – is where that vision comes to life. We make selecting materials, choosing colors, and personalizing your home stress-free.
These are the hallmarks of the Southern Development experience. It’s a recipe that’s been proven over 16 years and more than 700 homes. And it’s why 99 percent of our customers say they would build with us again.
