After nearly a decade, we say farewell to the beautifully completed neighborhood of Pavilions at Pantops.
The neighborhood is home to our friends, family, neighbors, and employees too! We are proud of the relationships we have cultivated with each and every home owner.
Today is exciting and bittersweet, as we will miss neighbors stopping by the model to say hello, the breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and some of the best sunsets that Charlottesville has to offer. However, we are extremely happy to see Pavilions at Pantops be the successful community it was destined to be!

Larry and Barbara Stremikis purchased and built their first home with us in 2001, their second in 2014, and they just moved in to their 3rd Southern Development home on a beautiful 1/2 acre homesite in Hyland Ridge. We are honored and humbled that customers like the Stremikis family come back to build with us. Thank you to our all our wonderful customers, we are so happy to have you in the Southern Development Homes’ family!
On Thursday, April 20th , just two days before Earth Day, Southern Development Homes was honored at Viridiant’s Sustainable Leadership Awards, receiving the “Developer of the Year” award.
The annual awards recognize the region’s premiere developers, builders, architects, government officials and other industry professionals for their work in advancing the benefits of sustainable building through the EarthCraft family of green building programs.
Southern Development Homes prides itself on high quality sustainable construction and superior customer service. Along with quality comes excellent energy efficiency; generally up to 40% better than the average new home. Because of their commitment to quality, sustainability, and energy efficiency, this is Southern Development Homes’ 4th consecutive year being recognized with a sustainable leadership award from Viridiant.
“We’re humbled to again be recognized by Viridiant for our sustainable building practices,” said Frank Ballif, President of Southern Development Homes. “Being able to build great homes that our customers love for decades after they first move in is what makes us look forward to our work each day. Awards like this and the testimonials from our customers are the greatest reward we could get.”
