Active adult communities offer buyers age 55 and older a low-maintenance lifestyle and abundant recreational amenities. At Virginia Heritage at Lee’s Parke, buyers can enjoy the security of living within a gated enclave that is part of Lee’s Parke, one of the Fredericksburg area’s best-selling planned communities.

At Virginia Heritage at Lee’s Parke, residents can enjoy a clubhouse with more than 16,000 square feet, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and tennis courts. The clubhouse includes a fitness room, locker rooms, a ballroom, a reception area and library, meeting rooms, a kitchen, a crafts room and a billiards room.

The community is 35 miles from the Capital Beltway.

NVHomes is offering three models at Virginia Heritage at Lee’s Parke, each with twin 5-inch siding, professional landscaping and a two-car garage.

Inside, the homes have a formal entrance foyer, a main staircase with traditional oak railings, crown moldings, 10-foot ceilings on the main level and tray, cathedral and coffered ceilings.

Standard features also include hardwood flooring in the foyer, powder room, kitchen and breakfast area; a gas fireplace with a marble surround, ceramic tile flooring in all full baths, a master bath with a tub and separate shower, gas heat and hot water, and a designer kitchen with 42-inch maple raised panel cabinets, a pantry, and granite counters.

The homes are base-priced from $449,990 to $499,990.

The Cavendish model, base-priced at $494,990, features a covered front entrance with columns leading into a two-story foyer with a view into the great room at the opposite end of the home. The formal dining room at the front of the house includes a bay window and a tray ceiling, with columns framing the entrance to the room.

Across the foyer from the dining room is a small hall with a closet, a linen closet and a full bath. The adjacent room can be used as a bedroom or a study and includes a walk-in closet. A bay window can be added to this room. Nearby is the laundry room, which has an entrance to the two-car garage.
