Chesterfield County (Zone 64)
Oak Park, located along Huguenot Road in northern Chesterfield County, is one of the more important neighborhoods in Richmond. Developed in the mid 2000’s, Oak Park is a neighborhood whose architectural guidelines departed sharply from the standard of the day and demanded highly varied but specifically styled homes.
The covenants governing Oak Park called for a high degree of exterior finish reminiscent of the Craftsman styled homes built during the early-middle 20th Century. Nouveau interpretations based on the classic bungalow or four-square designs of the period were recreated by the builders in the neighborhood. The inspiration is based on a brochure for the original Ginter Park neighborhood found in an old pickup truck found in a garage on the property after the site was purchased.
Oak Park’s neighborhood covenants went a long way to insure the diversity of design within the neighborhood and to protect the values. The public opinion of Oak Park is almost always positive, despite the elevated pricing due to the architectural guidelines.
