A new subdivision is being developed in Colonial Beach off Monroe Bay.
Named Sunset Cove, the new neighborhood will be positioned at the intersection of Livingstone St. and Lynnhaven Ave. with 18 buildable lots. Six of the lots are waterfront with riparian rights, and they have riparian surveys that will be conveyed with the lots. There are six other lots that have water views, according to the site manager Dan Armstong.
At the August Colonial Beach Town Council meeting, he provided the town with an update on the project.
All of the utilities are in. The sanitary sewer is already connected and online, and the storm drains are installed and functioning properly. Additionally, the water system has passed two sample tests, Armstrong said.
Conduits for Dominion Energy have been installed. “Once the first permit is filed for the first home that’s going to be built on a lot, they will install the lines, the transformers, and necessary equipment,” he told the town council.
The subdivision will be free of utility poles and lines for electricity and broadband. Everything in that regard will be buried. Armstrong said he already talked to Breezeline and as soon as someone requests service, the company will come out and bury the lines in the utility area.
Everything is prepped and compacted, and the base roadways are already put down.
The curb and gutter concrete pour was scheduled to start on August 22. The asphalt for the road as well as for patches to blend and smooth the asphalt work with Livingstone and Lynnhaven was scheduled for August 29, and the final concrete pour for sidewalks was scheduled for Sept. 6. On Sept. 7, the seeding for the grass was scheduled.
There will be a homeowners’ association, “but nothing crazy.” Mainly that HOA will exist to maintain the shoreline and ensure that no one obstructs anyone else’s view, said Armstrong.
At the time of the meeting, he said the property owner was in discussion with several builders but no final decision had been made in that regard. But regardless, the listing was supposed to launch on Labor Day.
TTR Sotheby’s International Realty will be handling the sales, said Armstrong.
