In 2005 when I walked over the land that is now Downey Knolls and Elkton Plaza West, the views were spectacular and I envisioned a project that would make a perfect retirement community. Besides the spectacular panoramic views, it bordered Rt. 33, a four lane divided highway, with a stream at the back of the property, next to an established shopping center.

When I discussed this with my partners, we made the decision to purchase this land. Our plan was to develop a senior community, Downey Knolls, a 55 and older community, which not only has access to an established shopping center, but will have access to a new business complex, Elkton Plaza West, fronting Rt. 33.

Downey Knolls will have a community center, a walking trail, picnic area and recreational vehicle parking at no cost for residents. At this time this is the only 55 and older planned community in Rockingham County that offers these amenities.

Elkton Plaza West offers commercial building sites with public water and sewer available. Imagine your business here right off Rt. 33, next to an established shopping center!

Downey Knolls and Elkton Plaza West are golf cart approved developments and is minutes from Skyline Drive, Shenandoah River, and Massanutten Ski Lodge.

If you have plans to purchase a new home in a 55 and older community, or start a new business with an excellent location, take the time to check out these developments and you will see why this could be the perfect place to be.
