We continually strive to set new standards for what it means to be a local builder. Living in our own communities, we want to make sure our neighbors enjoy years of trouble-free homeownership. From our engineers and craftspeople, to our design consultants and Customer Care Ambassadors, everyone is focused on making sure you love your Van Metre home for years to come.

Commitment That Endures

In 1955, our founder, Albert G. Van Metre, began a business endeavor that would evolve into a family of companies. His meticulous nature and uncompromising ideals set him apart from other local developers, and his name quickly became synonymous with quality and craftsmanship.

Over the years, our dedication to service and commitment to quality have been recognized through the granting of many awards—from industry recognition of individual Van Metre team members to community acknowledgement of our longstanding philanthropic work as a company.

Building and strategic enterprises (base)

BASE, Van Metre’s manufacturing plant in Winchester, VA, has constructed our homes since 2005. Experienced craftspeople work hand-in-hand to translate our architect's vision into carefully engineered products for our homes. With a commitment to structural building practices, our team ensures a sound home and a solid investment.

Design Centre

In shaping our Design Centre, we created a destination that celebrates your personal style—a place where you can truly experience all the interior finish possibilities for your new home. Here, you work with our highly experienced design consultants to consider options, create thoughtful spaces, and design an enviable home you’re sure to enjoy for a lifetime.

Customer Care

From the time you sign your sales contract through the full warranty period on your home, our Customer Care team is there to represent you. Each of our communities has its own Customer Care Ambassador who serves as your liaison with Van Metre. When you have questions, your Ambassador is there to answer them, and to make sure your needs are addressed promptly and effectively.

Energy Efficiency

As builders, we recognize that everything we do impacts the place we call home. So, we choose environmentally-friendly construction materials and select energy-efficient fixtures and appliances for all our homes. It’s exactly what you’d expect from a local developer. What we do is good for the planet and your budget.
