Further, to realize that there are no short cuts, and it can be quite harmful to your objective by challenging the obstacles that confront you, as opposed to confront- ing them head on and quickly developing a solution. How did you choose Lake Anna for your latest development projects and please remind us the correct names of each. My current development activity at Lake Anna did not come about by choice. It is really by happenstance, I discovered Lake Anna from a shad fishing trip on the Rappa- hannock River in Fredericksburg during the spring of 1973. We had read of a new lake and nucle- ar power plant in central Virginia. As we bagged the shad fishing, we began a search for ‘the lake”, which ended at Lake Anna Marina where we rented a 6 HP john- boat – one of 4 in inventory - from Rosie Boggs. This discovery prompted a purchase of a boat, and a weekend venture from spring to fall for myself and my two sons – John and Paul. Sleeping on the boat under the glow of the power plant, and cooking breakfast on the Coleman stove perched on a back of the boat – what could be better! – We were in heaven! This lead to the purchase of the first prop- erty in 1980 – 13 acres for $80,000 – with the help and expertise of Bill Blount, and Lorelle Kelly. – Really cannot thank them enough! House plans were completed and con- struction began in 1987. As time pro- gressed, the success of development in northern Virginia provided funds for ad- ditional investment opportunities at Lake Anna. “The most satisfying aspect of this development career came from providing communities that answered the needs of the residents.” - David Hunter My motivation was to acquire land for per- sonal comfort and security. It was not until about two years ago that I began to ques- tion the wisdom of holding onto the land. Obviously, with my background, the only avenue was to prepare the land for devel- opment. As a result, we have a well-located com- munity in Terrys Run whereby we limited the development to 10 estate lots on 55 acres of land, all surrounded by a Virginia Conservation Easement in the rear, and water in the front – there is nothing like it on the lake. It is a community for only the most dis- criminating buyer. Asphalt streets. Septic approved, recorded lots ready for building permits, and that dream house. The same is true with the Estates at Cor- sair Terrace. Estate type lots located on Pi- geon Creek opposite the 3,000 acre State Park.

Goodwin’s Cove development in the upper Pamunkey Branch. Again, larger lots with exceptional views, and beautiful sunsets – roads built, all ap- proved, and recorded lots ready for build- ing permits, and construction of that dream home. In the midst of this activity, I was pre- sented with a property owned by the local Goodwin family. This is truly an excep- tional property located between two well- established communities: Kelly’s Landing, and Runnemede. This was a must-have in my mind, considering the water front po- tential, and the mountain views due to the 60-feet of difference in elevation from the water front to its fronting on Monrovia Rd (Rt 612). The Goodwin Cove project is now re- zoned for 35 building lots. 15 –one-acre water front lots, and 20 two-acre off water lots with assigned boat slips in an upscale
