Many subdivisions lack the ability to tell the market what they are about. Some offer a pool. Some offer walking trails. Some even offer TWO pools…but at the end of the day, they are really not easily distinguishable from one another as the community center, lot size, home designs and builders are all remarkably similar.
The Highlands, located near the Chesterfield Courthouse, knows what it is and does an excellent job of sticking to its core by offering large, estate-sized wooded lots wrapped around an excellent set of amenities. While the Highlands is somewhat far from the City core, each and every day, development pressure towards the central Chesterfield region intensifies making this community a consideration for more and more buyers seeking to purchase a new home.
George Emerson, the developer and one of the builders in the Highlands, is a well funded and astute developer that not only develops residential subdivisions in the central Chesterfield region, he also develops commercially and owns multiple apartments in both the suburban and urban core. As the market for residential development crashed in 2008, those who owned rental properties, especially in the burgeoning urban markets around VCU’s Monroe Park and Medical Campuses did very well. This diversification between residential, apartment and commercial development allowed George, and subsequently, The Highlands, to survive the downturn that bankrupted many others.
The Highlands offers 1-5 acre lots, a golf course, an amazing pool complex, walking and nature trails and a stocked lake that is centered in the community.
