In 2009, Homearama will be held in a Virginia Beach neighborhood for the second year in a row.

The Tidewater Builders Association announced Tuesday that it has selected North Shore at Ridgely Manor, off Wesleyan Drive between Diamond Springs and Haygood roads, for its annual showcase for local custom home builders.

Homearama 2008 is Oct. 13-19 in Ashville Park off Princess Anne Road in southern Virginia Beach.

Located on the Norfolk reservoir Lake Smith, North Shore at Ridgely Manor features houses selling between $600,000 and $1 million. The 100-acre neighborhood, adjacent to Cypress Point, opened in 2006 and is being developed by Terry Peterson Residential. It will offer walking trails, birdhouses and a wooded perimeter.

Ed Sadler, president of the Tidewater Builders Association, said the organization chose another Virginia Beach location because it's in the heart of Hampton Roads.

"The site is centrally located, close to 64, close to the airport," he said. "We thought that would be a great way to access people in and out."
