During our experience building homes over the last 30 years, it’s a pleasure to work with talented local agents. At Boone Homes, one of our core values is to ensure that our homes within a community create “neighborhood integrity.” We love that our homes are unique, but we also appreciate that agents like Phil Mason are just as intriguing.
Phil has gained 33 years of career experience while working in information technology for Signet Bank/Bank of Virginia and Capital One, where he created and led several IT departments through a period of rapid expansion. His expertise in design and project management led him to playing a key role in creating Capital One’s first Data Center. He also worked as a vice president until his retirement in 2000.
In today’s rebounding market, when resale properties are being snapped up as soon as they are listed and new home construction is popping up on every other corner, deciding which is best for you can be a challenge. People considering previously owned homes often pursue resale because they think it is cheaper and easier. But with building practices have become streamlined, building a new home can cost as much as or even less than buying an existing home. Cost isn’t the only reason to build, though. There are other benefits of working with a builder on a brand new house.
As families grow and society changes, multi-generation house plans are becoming more and more popular. Grandparents are moving in to be closer to children and help look after grandchildren, young adults are living at home longer and aging parents need extra love and care. According to recent research, approximately 51 million Americans live in a home with at least two adult generations, or a grandparent and at least one other generation.
At Boone Homes, we recognize that every buyer’s lifestyle is different and that each family requires unique living solutions. That’s why we offer a variety of multi-generational floor plans in our Dominion Park community.
At Boone Homes, we pride ourselves on our impressive collection of home plans, which is why we’re so excited to add the Ashmont to our portfolio. Exclusively at Kinloch Villas, we think homebuyers will respond to the standard features and enjoy customizing this plan to fit their needs.
The Ashmont is a two-story brick home with a covered front porch and two-car garage. With three bedrooms and two and a half baths, plus bonus space and room to expand, the Ashmont make a strong case for those who are thinking of downsizing.
The exterior of the home is just a taste of the elegance and functionality found inside. Entering the foyer at an angle, a study allows residents to work from home in privacy. The study can be converted to an additional first floor bedroom and full bathroom. Across the hall, a formal dining room makes room for family dinners or intimate meals. Toward the back of the home, a spacious and friendly kitchen with counter space and cabinet storage overlooks all the activity in the wide open family room. Tucked just at the back is a breakfast nook which leads to the patio.
House hunters know that a key factor in finding their dream home is a great school district. These communities provide excellent educations for their children, endless opportunities for friends and family fun, and good work districts or fun activities for interested home buyers without children.
Boone Homes offers such a life in the Deep Run High School district of Henrico. Recently named the eighth best high school in Virginia by the U.S. News & World Report, Deep Run High School is zoned for three of Boone Homes’ quality and convenient neighborhoods! Ellington, Dominion Park and Ellington Woods provide access to this incredible school and an affordable, quality home to their residents.
After nearly 30 years of building new homes throughout the greater Richmond area, we have had the opportunity to work with some of the city’s best real estate talent. Working with these top agents ensures that our home buyers have an exceptional experience from the time they start their new home search until they receive the keys to their move-in ready home.
At Boone Homes, we appreciate the work of the Realtors who trust us enough to bring valued buyers to our new homes. Lori Bonjo is a real estate agent who is always looking to find the best options for her clients, from quality construction and customizable features to amenity-filled communities in top school districts. These are just a few of the features that consistently have her bringing her clients to Boone Homes.
A real estate agent knows the ins-and-outs of the home buying and building industry, so when they actually purchase a home from a builder, it should be taken as a great compliment. Cathy Dyer, an agent with Joyner Fine Properties, is someone who is not only easy to know, but someone who knows the local community, and has a first-hand experience with a Boone home.
As a resident of Richmond for 31 years, Cathy took the “Goldilocks” route to her forever home. Originally from Napoleon, Ohio where she received a small town upbringing, gave her deep family roots and lasting connections. Even though Napoleon is the hometown of her youth, and the heart of her memories, she simply believes Ohio was “too cold” for her. Moving to Florida, where she met her husband on a blind date, made her realize that Florida was “too hot.” The couple settled in Richmond in 1986, and she says that’s where she found her “true home.”
When searching for a new home, the local area is one of the first items to be researched. Luckily, the town of Glen Allen in the greater Richmond, Virginia area is welcoming, personable and supportive. Families grow and prosper and children end up creating lifelong memories and instead of teachers, they get mentors. While Glen Allen has a decent number of residents, there is still a small-town feel throughout. As the local community of Short Pump within Glen Allen continues to expand and take shape along Interstate 64, the new master-planned community of Bacova is springing to life. Featured within Bacova is our luxurious Hawksgate community, where large home sites will be available to build a variety of floor plans.
Boone Homes is excited to unveil a brand-new floor plan to be featured in our up-and-coming Kinloch Villas community. Our Southwick plan, priced from $500,000, occupies over 2,600 square feet of comfortable living space and features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a first-floor owner’s suite.
Enter into this Southwick floor plan through a beautiful covered front porch. As you explore the main level, you’ll find a study room set off to the side to ensure privacy. The study can be converted to an optional first floor bedroom with a full private bathroom. The spacious foyer opens to the formal dining room and leads into an open-concept kitchen and breakfast room that offers access to a rear patio, and a family room with a fireplace and bookcase options. Also featured on the main level is a gorgeous, well-designed owner’s suite with plenty of space, including a dressing area with vanity option, sizable his-and-hers closets and a relaxing owner’s bath with dual vanities, separate tub and large walk-in shower. A convenient laundry room and powder room are also located close to the first floor owner’s suite. Completing the main level is an attached two-car garage at the front of the house that offers a good quantity of storage space.
As a local Richmond custom home builder for almost 30 years, we wear a lot of hats in order to handle our responsibilities and preserve our solid reputation. In addition to building homes, managing contracts and juggling administrative duties, we also maintain a strong relationship with our local realtors. We have the knowledge to build beautiful homes, but our realtors are the ones who effectively reach interested buyers and guide them to Boone Homes.
In the current housing market, we realize and respect that our real estate agents are a large source of sales for our new homes and communities. As a trusted Virginia realtor, Rochelle Orr-Lee is dedicated to serving clients with honesty, integrity, dependability, effective communication and professionalism. Due to the emotional stress that can make buying a new home more difficult than expected, Rochelle helps clients understand the entire process and gives them insight that will give them the support they need.

Great arts and culture are crucial factors to Richmond’s economy and it’s one of the many things that make the area such a great place to live, work and play.

A kitchen design says a lot about the quality of the home you choose. It is the soul of the house and it must be suitable to your tastes and your lifestyle. What components make a perfect kitchen? There’s no one answer, but Boone Homes may have an idea to get you started. Recently awarded for Best Kitchen during the 2016 Richmond Parade of Homes, the Brookstone model home located within the Ellington at Wyndam community has a kitchen that is both functional and appealing.
Walk into the new dynamic Brookstone floor plan and notice the large, open rooms it has to offer. Upon entering the spacious kitchen, you will first observe the pleasant impression it presents from the bright color scheme of white cabinets and blue tile trim. The big windows and openings to other rooms make a significant difference in how the kitchen feels. To add extra space, this house also offers a separate breakfast room for dining.
