Walker Homes is now building in Henley
Walker Homes is now building in the exclusive community of Henley in western Henrico County. Prices will range from $1.2 to $2 million.
You have only to drive the streets of this unique community to see why it boasts some of metropolitan Richmond’s most exclusive homes. You’ll find a wide diversity of architectural styles here—the freedom of expression afforded to those who choose to build to their needs and wants versus a developer’s. The large, wooded lots provide privacy, yet there’s also a real sense of community.
Henley is different. And so is Walker Homes.
Don’t misunderstand, we love Virginia’s architectural traditions: Colonial, Federal, Victorian, Tudor, Craftsman, and others—in the last 30 years Walker homes has built over 350 homes of that lineage.
But we’re also not afraid of thinking differently. We love residential architecture and the ideas considered in its design: form, mass, scale, proportion, rhythm, siting, and so on—and we’re passionate about exploring creative ways of building homes that speak to the specific intentions and desires of its owners.
For example, recently, in nearby Westin Estates, we worked with creative clients to build two homes in what we think of as our version of Prairie Moderne: Strong horizontal lines, low-pitched roofs, overhanging eaves, clerestory windows, dramatic floating staircases, contemporary kitchens, laid out in open, bright living spaces.
