New Owners Testimonials

My husband, Kenneth, and I decided in 2014 that due to his medical problems that we had to move to a handicapped equipped home. We wanted to stay close to our present location of Shenandoah.

We read about the new subdivision, Downey Knolls, for 55 plus residents. The location, the surrounded view of the mountains, which we love, the convenience to shopping, restaurants & medical, helped to decide that this was the place for us. The country feeling helped also.

With Pete Bonavita of Four Star Realty’s help we sold our home, purchased a lot at Downey Knolls and started the process of building a fully handicapped home. We chose Gary Beatty as our builder. From the layout of a home we saw on the internet he designed a house for us that we love & meets our needs. We stressed the urgency of moving as soon as possible and he did everything he possibly could to get us into our new home quickly. We moved into our new home in January 2015.

Everyone involved with developing Downey Knolls is very fine, friendly & helpful. We are very pleased with our home and the surrounding area.

I feel very confident Downey Knolls will be a lovely area to live in with its many special enhancements when it is completed and I enjoy watching the process as it grows.

This August, 2014; we purchased a duplex in Downey Knolls. We love the location, the workmanship and layout of our home. We were treated with courtesy through the whole process. We feel dollar for dollar we received a fair price. Thanks to Mr. Beatty and Mr. Bonavita.

In October 2014 I moved from a 3 bedroom, 2 car garage, full basement house into a 2 bedroom, 1 car garage, no basement duplex in the Downey Knolls 55+ Development.  Needless to say it took a bit of down-sizing, but after getting rid of “stuff” I didn’t need, I am quite satisfied with the move. My unit is nicely arranged, easy to care for and much to my surprise is sound proof. I never hear my neighbors, nor do I hear the traffic. Everything has been above my expectations! Come join us! I think you would be happy with the move. I know I am!

After living in the Northern Neck of Virginia for 37 years we decided to return to the area we have always loved, the Shenandoah Valley. After looking at numerous homes and properties we chose to build in Downey Knolls Subdivision due to the many conveniences that are available nearby and Downey Knolls being a 55+ community.  We are looking forward to moving into our custom built duplex located on Vinny Court, Elkton, VA.
