Salamander Hotels & Resorts and South Street Partners broke ground just last month on a highly anticipated residential community, Residences at Salamander.

Forty-nine built-for-sale homes within the rolling landscape of the Washington, D.C.-area’s only Forbes Five-Star resort are soon coming to market on the southern perimeter of Middleburg’s Salamander Resort & Spa.

Nestled next to the resort’s 340 acres, “the entire development has been designed to combine luxury resort living with the charming character of Middleburg, while also not impacting the existing resort guest experience,” according to a recent release of the groundbreaking.

Salamander residences will be offered in two distinct neighborhoods: The Vineyards — where prices start at $2.7 million — and The Stables — starting at $3.65 million — with luxury farmhouse-style homes ranging from 3,500 to 5,500 square feet on sites spanning 0.4 to 1.3 acres.

In addition to designer tiling, high ceilings, expansive windows, and a banquet of high-end finishes and materials, owners at Residences at Salamander will enjoy a variety of benefits and services at Salamander Resort & Spa including 24-hour concierge service, room service, overnight accommodation preferred rates, and member discounts on Salamander’s dining, spa, and other resort activities. Owners will also receive a complimentary one-year membership at Creighton Farms Golf Club and RdV Vineyards, with reduced membership rates also available for Wheels Up, a leader in private aviation.

“An integral part of part of my vision for Salamander was to create a residential community that connects the vibrancy of the resort with Middleburg’s beauty,” said Sheila Johnson, the resort’s owner and Founder & CEO of Salamander Hotels & Resorts.

Salamander Resort & Spa is surrounded by traditional horse farms and 50 wineries within an hour’s drive. Guests rave about the resort’s superior service, luxury accommodations, excellent recreational options, and world-class equestrian center.
