Site work continues for the development of Clevenger’s Village on Highways 211 and 229, approximately eight miles west of Warrenton.

The development of over 700 homes, anchored near the county boundaries of Fauquier, Culpeper and Rappahannock, continues to progress to become a reality.
Florida based home construction company Lennar Corp. in August, opened 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 stating that the homes would become available last fall, Lennar vice president of communications Danielle Tocco said: “Sales of three single-family home collections will begin from mid-December at Golf Lane before starting construction on our first section of single family homes.
Development of the Clevenger’s Corner woodland site at Rixeyville Road and Lee Highway has been on hold since 2005, when the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors changed the property’s zoning. Centex Homes bought the Clevenger’s Village project that year, but never developed the property following the collapsing housing market. Centex sold to Pulte Homes in 2014, and Saadeh Partners bought Clevenger’s Village in August 2018.
Miami-based 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 nationwide, including Pennsylvania, California, and Texas.
The Culpeper County Comprehensive Plan designates Clevenger’s Corner as a “village center,” noted board chairman Gary Deal.
“The concept of the village center was conceived with the idea that concentrating the growth in appropriate locations would help preserve the rural character of Culpeper County,” said Mr. Deal. “The area is already served by water and public sewers, and as such, it is a suitable location for some concentration of residential development.
“The project will also welcome and trigger commercial development, which is positive from an economic point of view. “
For decades, the potential development of Clevenger’s Corner has raised concerns in Fauquier, particularly about the increased traffic on Route 211 and on Broadview Avenue in Warrenton.
Stonehaven will consist of 761 single family homes and townhouses. Prices for single-family homes will start “in the upper $ 400,000 range,” Tocco said. Prices for townhouses have not been released.
General contractor SW Rodgers of Gainesville continues to prepare the site.
A suburban parking lot on Route 211 next to the development will remain open but will eventually move east on the Lee Expressway, Ms Tocco said.
