Sheppard Custom Homes is one of the two preferred builders at South Village in South Burlington. South Village is located on one of the most beautiful pieces of land in northern Vermont, with views to the west of the Adirondacks and to the east of the Green Mountains.
Until the 1980s, the meadows at South Village were used for growing hay and seasonal field crops. In early 2005, the property was put up for sale and several Burlington-area business leaders joined forces to protect it from being divided into a patchwork of 5-acre parcels. Their vision was to demonstrate an alternative to suburban sprawl by establishing a Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND).
South Village is Vermont’s first TND and one of more than 300 across the country. In these pedestrian-friendly communities, homes are located close together and are connected with narrow streets and wide sidewalks. There are front porches, trees and gardens. And, in the case of South Village, there are other amenities including an organic farm, community gardens, chickens and bees, open space for walking and skiing, and abundant habitat for wildlife.
The homes at South Village share a design aesthetic as well. Traditional rooflines, window styles and design details reflect the pleasing architecture of New England’s loveliest small towns. Construction standards ensure every home at South Village is attractive, well built and energy efficient. This thoughtful approach to style and materials makes it possible to integrate a variety of housing types and encourage a diverse community that welcomes single professionals, young families, empty nesters and seniors.
More than 70% of the 220 acres at South Village have been permanently protected from future development. Residents share access to this common land, which includes woods, meadows and wetlands as well as a 5-acre organic farm and 1-acre photovoltaic solar array.
All of the homes at South Village feature traditional rooflines, window styles and construction details that reflect the pleasing architecture of New England’s loveliest small towns. This continuity of design and materials makes it possible to integrate a variety of different housing options including single family homes and townhouse. Learn more about South Village.
