A new housing development will be coming soon to the Carrollton area.

The neighborhood, Carrollton Manor, located off of Carrollton Boulevard, is expected to be complete within the next two to four years.

Construction for the project began earlier this year, according to Bobby Reed, construction coordinator for Ocean Bay Homes.

“This is a good location,” Reed said. “It is close to the James River and can attract people from the peninsula,” Reed said.

Reed expects the first three or four homes for the property to be built within the next 60 days. In total, there will be 45 single-family homes, with values ranging from $300,000 to $350,000.

Rezoning for the property and its units was approved back in 2002, according to Richard Rudnicki, assistant director for the Isle of Wight planning and zoning department.

The property encompasses about 39 acres, with about 24 acres expected to be disturbed.

“It will be comparable to the surrounding neighborhoods,” Rudnicki said. “It will be a good fit.”

The site is located between the Ashby and Cannon Acres neighborhoods in Carrollton.
