As Close As You Can Get to Nature and Still Be Home

Southeastern Virginia gave us a little break from the scorching heat this week as Bailey, my four-legged friend from the Norfolk SPCA, and I paid a visit to the Hickory subdivision, Viridian Reserve in Chesapeake.

Bea Cobell, the Site Manager at Viridian Reserve, gave us a tour of a few of the newly constructed beautiful homes built by Etheridge Construction.

Etheridge Construction is a locally owned and family operated home building company. The company was established in 1978 by cousins Herbert Ansell and Bill Overton as a real estate development company. In the 1980s, the operation was expanded to include construction of single family homes. Herbert Ansell retired in 1997, and Scott Overton entered the business. Soon thereafter, Jeff Overton and Jeff Benson also entered the business, making it a truly family owned and operated company. Now, the next generation, Matt Benson and Josh Overton, are becoming involved in Etheridge’s new developments.
