A Brief History of CrossRidge

CrossRidge is an active adult community located on a 400-acre site that was the former Ridge Farm in Henrico County, Virginia, in Glen Allen just northwest of the City of Richmond. The last owners of Ridge Farm, the Cross family (hence the name CrossRidge), sold the property at the turn of the millennium to Courtney Development, Inc., a partnership of Atack Properties and Eagle Construction of Virginia. Courtney developed the CrossRidge concept, a community comprised of several villages or neighborhoods, all providing age-qualified housing under the Federal Housing For Older Persons Act (HOPA). In general, each household must have at least one resident 55 years of age or older, and no resident may be younger than 18 years of age.

Construction of the community began in 2001 and on March 12, 2002, the first home closing took place.  At the end of 2013, CrossRidge was completely built out with 746 homes and nearly 1400 residents.

The Communities

CrossRidge has six communities or neighborhoods, each with their own particular style of home:

  • Berkeley Carriage Homes I, 76 duplex condominiums
  • Berkeley Carriage Homes II, 150 duplex condominiums and 1 single-family condominium
  • Cottages, 257 single-family homes
  • Shirley Townes, 177 townhomes
  • Southall, 24 condominiums in 4 two-story buildings
  • Edgewood Townes, 60 townhome condominiums

All residents are members of the Pavilion Club, a 17,000 sq ft recreational facility on 5 acres of land that acts as the center of social activity within the community. The Pavilion features two large meeting rooms, card and billiard rooms, an indoor heated pool and spa, a fitness center, an outdoor pool, and tennis/pickleball courts. The Pavilion has an Activity Staff and active Committees involved in planning and executing major social events. There are also a variety of active clubs such as the Travel Club, and a Women's Club. Beyond that, the Pavilion hosts a number of social, educational, arts, travel and fitness programs for our residents. In a typical month, there are more than 100 such events taking place at the Pavilion.

All homes feature attached two-car garages, at least two baths, and main-floor living, with a master bedroom and large master bath, great room, dining room, and kitchen on one floor. In Southall, second story units feature private elevators. Most homes have either a sun room or screened porch as well. Various models include one, two or three additional bedrooms, a loft, a formal living room and a casual eating space.

The community is gated with its main entrance at the intersection of Staples Mill Road and CrossRidge Glen Way. All property, including streets, within CrossRidge is privately owned by the homeowners or by one of the seven homeowner/unit owner associations operating in the community. These associations provide a low-maintenance environment for residents, including full landscape maintenance, exterior home maintenance and repair, snow removal, refuse collection, and road maintenance.
