Driving Scenic Route 11 in Shenandoah Valley Virginia
Driving I-81 at exit 257, and followed Rt. 11 north through New Market, Mt. Jackson, and stopped filming in Woodstock (all VA). Large sections of Rt. 11 are considered a scenic byway but think Rt. 40. Before the interstate, this was the highway, so there's some sprawl in little towns and sections of it run right through Staunton, Harrisonburg and Roanoke, making it very congested decidedly non-scenic. This part above (check out the google map of the area) runs right along this big mountain ridge so it's lovely.
East West Communities- Celebrating 40 years of Creating Virginia's Best Places to Live & Play
Since 1972, East West Communities has been developing award-winning communities and resorts in seven states across America. The success story started when the original partners were a group of young real estate professionals working for one of the nation's premier resort developers, Sea Pines Company on Hilton Head Island. The company purchased land outside Richmond, Virginia, with unprecedented plans of building a community that would offer a vacation lifestyle for everyday living. The first community, Brandermill, became home to 4,400 families and was named the Best Planned Community in America in 1977 by Better Homes and Gardens Magazine and the National Association of Homebuilders. The second community, Woodlake, also near Richmond, was chosen Best Planned Community in America by the 14,000 members of Urban Land Institute (ULI) in 1990.
In the mid-1980s, East West expanded into the Hampton Roads region of Virginia with the Gatling Pointe community near Smithfield. Gatling Pointe set the benchmark for community development in the area, and was a three-time Community of the Year recipient from the Peninsula Housing & Builders Association. The Riverfront, the developer's second masterplanned community in Hampton Roads, continued to raise the bar in community development for the region and has received numerous accolades and awards. Soon after The Riverfront, East West opened Eagle Harbor and Founders Pointe, both in Isle of Wight County -- and both receiving multiple Community of the Year awards from the Peninsula Housing and Builders Association. Riverwatch is another environmentally sensitive riverfront property bordering the Piankatank River in Gloucester, Virginia -- and the newest community, Liberty Ridge in Williamsburg, with its Grand Opening of its first two models in the Spring of 2011. Liberty Ridge features custom homes on minimum 3 acre wooded homesites.
