PHOTOS: 39-Home Chapel Road Development Eyeing Spring Completion

Developers have broken ground on 39 new Perry Hall homes at the corner of Chapel Road and Cross Road.

Dirt, downed trees and construction equipment fill an 18-acre lot planned to hold 39 single-family homes at Chapel Road and Cross Road. 

While the Reserve at Camp Chapel housing development gained approval about four years ago, construction was held until this winter due to the struggling economy, Patch reported. 

A representative of developer D.R. Horton said construction of homes will likely begin in January, and that the development should be completed by the spring. 

The planned neighborhood is named after a former horse farm and the historic Camp Chapel United Methodist Church nearby.

Projected new residents will add approximately nine students to Gunpowder Elementary School, six students to Perry Hall Middle School and seven students to Perry Hall High School, according to a Baltimore County school impact analysis document dated July 19, 2006, provided by the Baltimore County Department of Planning.

See the gallery for development documents.

Okay I checked the Patch articles, and the "prior announcement" was a confirmation by the County that Chapel Rd. was not scheduled to be widened. That doesn't necessarily mean that it shouldn't have safe travel lanes and pedestrian accomodations...

Congratulations Mr. Anthony on your purchase. I believe you have accomplished an extremely rare event by finding an unimproved two acre lot in Perry Hall. Most lots of this size have an existing home on the property. This usually increases the price of acquisition to such an extent that after razing the house and building a new one it does not make economic sense to do it. Good luck with your construction.

This is what we want to do and it does make a lot of sense. I would love to not be governed by the ridiculousness of an HOA and why anyone would want to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to live all crammed together like sardines is beyond me. I'll take a two acre lot any day. Plus, builder to my specs is the best way to go, not the builder's idea of what a house should look like!

Dan- Are you a competitor of this firm? Another builder?
