Steve Canterbury has been following his passion in building for over 35 years. Originally from Point Pleasant, West Virginia, opportunities in real estate led him to Central Virginia. In the Charlottesville area, Steve is best known for his attention to detail and deliberate persistence in getting a job done “right and on budget.”

“Steve and his crew did an exceptional job of placing the cottage I wanted to build on my land….My favorite compliment on my house is when people wonder if I redid a historic property or built the house new….”

After attending West Virginia University, Steve began his career in real estate through building and brokerage. Interest in the financial aspects of partnerships and investments led him to pursue and attain Securities Series 6 and Series 7 licenses. A thorough understanding of financing, brokerage, development and construction laid the foundation for a number of private placement real estate projects in which he served as the developer and general partner. Interest in organics, both food and farming, as well as interest in energy efficiency has led to developing real estate in a sustainable way.

“On a regular basis people stop by and ask who built my cottage. I have been so pleased with my new house and really appreciate the low energy bills…”

We have spent the last twenty years building in the Charlottesville and Richmond areas of Virginia. Our projects include development and construction of small country estates and cottages, as well as the renovation and restoration of historic properties. We have also constructed various single family residences, accessory buildings, additions, garages, barns, stables, greenhouses, apartment buildings and condominiums.

We combine exceptional design, site development, architectural detail, old world craftsmanship and energy efficiency into cost effective homes built for comfortable living. We offer contract services for new construction and renovations in Central Virginia.

Whether you are building a once in a life-time home or desire to downsize – but not downgrade, we offer the experience and attention to detail to make your dream become a reality. To help you achieve the best possible outcome, we can be most effective if we are brought into the project in the early planning stages. We welcome the discussion of your planned project.
