Construction has started on an infill development consisting of 29 single-family houses on Little River Turnpike in Annandale on the former site of the Campbell and Ferrara plant nursery.
The Callaway development is being built by Stanley Martin Homes. Houses will be about 3,037 to 4,363 square feet and are expected to start at about $750,000. The basic house will have four bedrooms, two and a-half bathrooms, and a two-car garage. Buyers can add options, including a finished basement and two additional full baths.

There won’t be any community amenities except a tot lot. Stanley Martin is planning to put up a sound wall along Little River Turnpike and a bus shelter. An on-site sales office will open later this month.
Residents of the Willow Run community opposed the development, citing concerns with traffic, stormwater issues, and inadequate parking and complained that the new houses won’t fit in with the character of the existing neighborhood.
The Mason Land Use Committee opposed the project, but the Fairfax County Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors approved it in 2012. The county rezoned the land from R-2 to PDH-4, allowing a high-density community with an HOA responsible for maintaining the stormwater facility and other common areas.
