The developers of Maple Grove platted the subdivision in the year 2002 and included a total of 91 lots in the original plans. There are tracts of land of variable size throughout the community, with some as small as 2 acres and others measuring up to 4 acres in size. Best of all, residents have their choice of scenery in the subdivision, as many of the lots abut mature wooded areas and others are set on the shore of Maple Grove’s 15-acre lake.
Maple Grove Homes for Sale
Buyers that are in the market for a gorgeous newer construction home are spoilt for options, as well. A number of builders have contributed to the overall look of Maple Grove; however, with the help of the homeowners association and Architectural Review Board, the neighborhood has a cohesive look that benefits from an overall traditional feel. Some of the home styles highlighted in the community include Cape Cods, ranchers, craftsman-style homes and traditional charmers. Because there are both siding- and brick-clad residences throughout the neighborhood, homeowners get the opportunity to pick the home style that best correlates with their personalities.
On the insides of the homes, modern floor plans give families plenty of space to grow. One- and two-story floor plans give homeowners options, and there are many great upgrades available, including separate laundry rooms, hardwood floors, walk-up attics and much more. Outside, the careful planning of Maple Grove’s homes is apparent. Thoughtful landscaping is found surrounding the homes, and there are plenty of tall trees to add privacy throughout the year. Some of the residences feature large front porches or comfortable rear entertaining decks to fully take advantage of the serenity that Maple Grove offers.
Driving through Maple Grove, the winding roads, patches of mature trees and spread-out homes give off a peaceful vibe. One of the most tranquil, and at the same time the most exciting, features of the subdivision is the lake around which many of the homes are built. This body of water measures approximately 15 acres in size and includes coves that are ideal for fishing and a great deal of open water for swimming, boating, kayaking or whatever else visitors desire. There are smaller creeks running through some of the lots in the subdivision, for added appeal.
When the lake is too small and calm for the water activities residents have in mind, there is a launching point for the James River set within minutes of Maple Grove. There are calmer areas of the river that are perfect for children, as well as more adventurous portions that are great for high-speed activities such as whitewater rafting and tubing. Around the river, picnic ground, mountain biking trails, hiking paths, rock and tree climbing and picnic grounds give visitors of all ages the opportunity to enjoy nature. Powhatan’s residents, including those of Maple Grove, have access to great educational camps and events along the river, as well.
If it is town rather than nature homeowners in Maple Grove crave, all of the shops and opportunities of West Richmond await just down the highway. There are great museums to choose from – including the art museum, and the aviation museum – and many great ways to soak up the culture this part of Virginia offers. Richmond is also a major employment hub, yet is close enough to Maple Grove that the daily drive to and from the office is not too cumbersome.
Back in Maple Grove, life is quiet and family values are strong. This community is a fantastic place to raise children, with its friendly environment and dedication to the safety and happiness of its residents. There are only two entry points to the subdivision, both of which are accessible from Three Bridge Road. While there are long stretches of roads throughout the subdivision, nearly every street ends in a cul de sac. This limits the amount of vehicular traffic that passes through and makes the paved and well-maintained streets perfect for walking along or even playing in with the children of the neighborhood.
With everything this carefully planned subdivision has to offer, the homes are highly desirable and move quickly. The inventory of available homes is never too high, and the median time on the market is less than three months. This neighborhood price point makes the community affordable for professionals, young families and retirees alike, which creates a diverse environment and a great mixture of neighbors. When it comes to Maple Grove, a simple, comfortable life is within easy reach of everyone.
