Covenant Woods has embarked on a forward thinking project to renovate its original cottages in the Brookview neighborhood, which opened with the Continuing Care Retirement Community in 2001. Over the last 17 years, the market has changed drastically and Covenant Woods is prepared to meet the needs of today’s consumers with a modern product tailored to their wants and needs.

The newly renovated neighborhood will feature four new floorplans, ranging from 1,520 to 1,855 square feet. Completion of the project will bring the total number of residences in the neighborhood from 29 units to 21, with the elimination of duplex models. The new, stand alone, cottages feature modern amenities not seen in the original 2001 models. Open floor plans encourage creative home décor, with large, open floor plan kitchens highlighting the living space. High ceilings in all new residences help open the space up visually, while the ample amount of storage, including 1 and 2 car garages, cater to the active, over 62 years old market of today and the future.

The project is ongoing and is currently completing its second phase, opening five new cottages. All five of these cottages are expected to be completed by the end of 2018 with one of these new cottages still available.

Construction of the homes is being managed by Henderson Inc., based in nearby Williamsburg, VA. Known for being a key contractor in the Greater Williamsburg and Norfolk regions, Henderson has expanded into the Richmond market as they look to continue to grow their reach in Virginia.

Covenant Woods is a continuing care retirement community, celebrating its 135th Anniversary this month and its 18th year in Mechanicsville. The Life Plan community has 188 apartments, 43 cottages as well as assisted living and skilled nursing care centers.
