Single family homes in scenic King George, Virginia.


Buyers looking for a new single-family home in a small town not far from Fredericksburg, Virginia, may want to sample the charms of the Eden View development in King George.

King George, the county seat of King George, is about 20 miles east of Fredericksburg, just over 60 miles south of DC, and about 10 miles west of the Potomac River.

Eden View builder Westbrooke Homes has plans for 33 single-family homes, with three ready for immediate delivery and four more under construction. Move-ins are expected to continue over the next nine to twelve months.

The homes occupy one-acre lots and there are many options to choose from, said Holly Lane, community sales manager. “We have nine models, each with three exterior elevations [facades]“, Lane said. “Architectural features have a craftsman feel” – including shingle siding and plank and batten siding – “all accented in a variety of color combinations available to personalize each home. “

Interior fittings and finishes are chosen at the design and sales center.

Base prices range from $433,900 to $585,900. Square footage ranges from 1,623 to 3,100. Eden View offers one- and two-story homes, including two-story homes arranged for one-story living. All models come with a two-car garage and an unfinished basement with three-piece rough-in plumbing for a full bathroom.

Townhouses in DC away from the “hustle and bustle”

Dan and Colleen Hogan opted for a two-story house, a Dunmore model, with 2,288 square feet, three bedrooms and three bathrooms. “We really liked the open floor plan,” Dan said, “including the morning room with a great view of the courtyard and the second-floor loft that we can use as a common area for the kids.”

The Hogans leased a spot at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division — located on the Potomac River and a major county employer — for three years before moving to Eden View in early August. Dan, 48, said he was a retired naval officer who works as a government scientist. He said Colleen, 45, is a former preschool teacher who sells homemade pies through her small bakery business.

“We were renting to give us a chance to get a feel for the area and to make sure we wanted to stay here,” Dan said. “Once we knew we wanted to put down roots in King George, we made the leap into home ownership.”

The Hogans kept tabs on the market for a while and then quickly struck, Dan said. “Eden View,” he said, “had the right balance of everything we were looking for.”

The nature preserve is a pleasant surprise for some Broadlands, Virginia shoppers

King George is a bit off the beaten path, but that’s what some buyers are looking for. “King George has a small town feel to it,” Lane said. “This quaint, yet growing community offers many recreational opportunities. King George is bordered by the Potomac and Rappahannock rivers as well as the Chesapeake Bay.
