Greetings from Charlottesville, Virginia!
Over this past weekend, the Connor Team traveled to Charlottesville, VA to attend our third open house of the summer. The event itself, hosted by the homeowners, proved to be nothing short of true southern hospitality. The homeowner’s sister catered the entire event with homemade southern ham biscuits and a wealth of other delicious goodies made with love. You see, this is truly a celebration. The homeowners have returned home to Charlottesville after living away for the last 35-years and this custom Connor Home is not only their retirement home but a dream come true!
Over 50 guests registered to attend with others personally invited by the custom builder, Steve Nicholson of the Maple Ridge Group and the project manager, Jacob Gray. The homeowners also included their new neighbors to survey the completion. It was evident that they’ve already found roots in their little country neighborhood, as neighbors showed up, they were greeted like lifelong friends.uest
Many of the guests in attendance were long-time Connor Homes followers. Most guests were local to the Charlottesville area, however, there were some traveling from Georgia and several within a two to four-hour drive. With guests arriving with design ideas in hand, or dog-eared Connor Homes catalogs, there were ample discussions with our team.
In addition, the universal consensus was awe and wonderment–at the level of quality, both the exterior and interior. Inside the mantels, paneled walls and crown moldings were favorites, as well as the view from the belvedere as guests admired the fantastic view from inside. In reality, almost every window in the house has a phenonenal view.
The team at Connor Homes cannot thank our gracious hosts (and their son, who happily advertised the shirt his father created featuring an elevation of the house while managing guest parking) enough for their genuine hospitality. Two families from the open house are traveling to Vermont this week to tour our mill shop and move forward with their designs.
As always, we are eager to answer any questions and hope to see you at our next open house scheduled for August 20th in Nantucket. You may register here.
