The Waterfront at Parkside

Homearama, Tidewater Builders Association’s annual showcase of custom built homes, comes to The Waterfront at Parkside neighborhood in Suffolk this fall.

Sam Cohen, past TBA president and Homearama chairman, proudly announced, “We’re thrilled to return to this lively and dynamic market in Suffolk. We were last here in 2011 at Riverfront at Harbour View, and the Rt. 17 corridor continues to be an active resale, as well as new home sales market. We anticipate eight builders will participate in Homearama 2014, with home prices starting in the mid- $400,000’s. Also, we’re proud to announce that TowneBank is the presenting sponsor. TowneBank was a presenting sponsor in 2012.”

Located in northern Suffolk, The Waterfront at Parkside is a beautiful, traditional neighborhood development with pristine marsh and deep-water views of Bennett’s Creek. This family centric community has inviting community spaces, a new million-dollar clubhouse/fitness center with an outdoor pool and grilling stations, miles of sidewalks, and a lush five-acre park. This is a Sasser Construction community.

The Waterfront at Parkside attracts a diverse demographic, from empty nesters to young families, and the median income is one of the highest in the region. The site is flanked by Bennett’s Creek Park, a 50-acre green space that features two free boat ramps that access the Nansemond River, a playground, tennis courts, three covered shelters, a nature trail, open fields, a fishing and crabbing pier with handicap accessible features, and a new skate park.

Though tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this community is close to I-664 and the Monitor-Merrimac Bridge, two hospitals, the new North Suffolk Library, Bennett’s Creek Crossing and Harbour View Station Town Center.

According to Cohen, the show format has slightly changed this year to better accommodate Homearama visitors and their interests. “Homearama will be open for three consecutive four-day weekends and will offer a spectrum of entertaining things to do.”

Fall fun at Homearama encompasses the following:

October 17, 18, 19 & 20: “Suffolk Harvest”

October 24, 25, 26 & 27: “Beer, Bratwurst & Boats”

October 31, November 1, 2, & 3: “Salute to the Military”
