Fairfax Crossing sales are under way in W.Va.

In the first phase of a venture that will ultimately create housing for several hundred families, and buildings that will house professional offices, businesses and services, Fairfax Crossing LLC in connection with Shultz Realty, Ryan Homes and Marcus Enterprises are announcing the availability of townhomes in Ranson, W.Va. at pre-construction pricing. Lakeland Place at Fairfax Crossing will also offer single-family homes and condominiums, with construction expected to begin in late summer.

Described as a mixed-use, master planned community, Fairfax Crossing offers a commute of less than 30 minutes to Frederick, Md. and the Dulles corridor in Virginia and is only minutes from the MARC Commuter Station in Duffields, W.Va.

Home construction by Ryan Homes NVR Division ensures home buyers of quality in design and construction. Ryan reinforces its commitment to quality through inspections at intermediate stages of construction as well as at settlement, 45 days and 10 months after; and there's a 10-year structural warranty. Details on these programs are available from the sales representatives at 571-259-7858.


Lakeland Place townhouses are level entry or garage models. Floor plan options allow owners to suit their lifestyles with a country kitchen or a dining room/family kitchen combination. In addition to a luxury owner's suite, the upper level may be configured with two additional bedrooms, or may have a second bedroom suite. The main level can be set up with a large country kitchen or a kitchen/dining room combination. Current plans call for prices to begin in the mid-$200,000's.

For pre-construction purchasers, Ryan includes a finished lower level family room with gas fireplace and marble surround. The foyer and powder room will have hardwood floors; Merillat oak cabinetry graces kitchen and baths.

Perhaps best of all, the Lakeland homes will enjoy mountain views from the community's hillside location. And as part of the community's master planning, Fairfax Crossing boasts a pool, tot lots, and walking trails.

Here and in Windmill Crossing, a second close-by development from Shulz Realty, Jefferson County's evolution shows the influence of a family history. Preceding the Shultz family (father William founded the firm 3 years ago; son Cricky and his uncles are leading the development at Charles Town), Marcus Enterprises led the way in earlier county development and home building. The uncles, Ron and Terry Marcus, could share the family pride in seeing Charles Town's modern shape as it emerges.

As local residents, Shulz Realty and family support sports activities throughout the area. Recently Cricky Shultz took up another leadership role. Noticing the deteriorated condition of the equipment and grounds at local Jefferson Memorial Park, he has initiated a campaign to raise the funds to repair playground equipment, tennis court paving and fencing. The park is not publicly funded and volunteers provide maintenance. Jefferson County businesses in particular are encouraged to support the effort. A call to Shultz Realty at 304-725-1491 will do the job.
