Infill houses for sale near Lake Barcroft

The Chapman model home.
A model home at Brooks Place, an infill development off Sleepy Hollow Road, is now open for viewing by prospective buyers.

The developer, Evergreene Homes, is building eight homes along a cul de sac at the end of Brooks Place, which is in between the Lake Barcroft and Malbrook communities.
The kitchen.
Several Malbrook residents had fought the development, charging it violates their subdivision covenants, but lost in court. One complaint involves access; the only way to get to the new homes is via Brooks Place, a narrow one-lane road.

The dining room.
Evergreene plans to build another spec home, but the remaining houses won’t be built until they are sold, says Debby James, regional sales manager.

The great room.
The 6,503-square foot model home currently open, the Chapman, has the most features and the highest price, at $1,481,696. (The prices are subject to change, James cautions.)

The master bedroom has a sitting area. 
 The house has five bedrooms, four and a-half bathrooms, a full dining room, great room, formal living room, large office, butler pantry, mud room, laundry room, two-car garage, and a mostly finished basement.

The master bathroom.
It also has hardwood floors on the main level and upstairs hallway, an oak staircase, a natural gas fireplace in the great room, stainless steel appliances, high-performance insulation, and energy-efficient mechanical systems.

The kitchen with a view of the butler pantry leading to the dining room.
Some of its features – such as a full front porch and “morning room” next to the kitchen – are optional. The base price without the upgrades is $1,339,900. The lowest-priced model in the development, the Tisbury, starts at about $1.2 million.

The future home sites. 
The homeowners will be part of an homeowners association and will be charged a $90 monthly HOA fee for such services as trash pickup and snow removal. 


  1. Such a waste of.....everything. Tearing down those trees on Brooks lane was awful. Greedy developers. Say sayonara to the Glavis property next!

    1. Hear, hear. I cringe when I see these things.

  2. It would be nice if they could put in some mid-range housing ($650,000-$850,000). There seems to be lots of starter homes ($400,000)in Mason and all the new stuff is $1 million plus.
