As stewards of these beloved Cavalier properties, Cavalier Associates preserve the value and integrity of the historic grand hotel, the surrounding grounds and the residential neighborhood. Towards that end, sensitively considered and carefully orchestrated planning, design and construction standards have been adopted. The specifics of this approach are defined in the Cavalier Residences Pattern Book that will serve as the guide governing the design of every home to be built in the Cavalier Residences’ community.
The home designs are to be based upon traditional coastal architecture, embracing four primary styles: Arts and Crafts, Tidewater Shingle, Victorian, and Colonial Revival. Each lot owner will be required to engage an architect that has been qualified to be in the Cavalier Architects Guild. All custom home designs will be reviewed and approved by a design review committee, led by the Cavalier Town Architect, to ensure that the vision and high standards of the Cavalier Residences are maintained.
Over 100 mature trees and other landscape elements will be planted to complement the existing live oaks and dramatic topography of the property that will provide an established landscape setting to be in place right from the beginning. This approach will not only reduce the homeowner maintenance for his or her yard and plant material, but also increase the long-term value of the residences through professional upkeep and continuity of design.
As the landscaping on each lot will collectively reflect the quality of the historic hotel, Cavalier Associates will design the landscape elements. These will be governed by the same carefully considered guidelines and design review and approval process as the architecture of the homes themselves. Ongoing maintenance will be included in the HOA dues.
Each lot purchaser will be required to select and contract with a builder from the Cavalier Builders Guild. The developer has pre-screened a group of the region’s finest custom homebuilders. Each is well respected, competent and an experienced general contractor. Cavalier Realty Associates’ professional sales staff will assist buyers in interviewing and selecting a Guild Builder of their choice.
