GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. ( – Empty nesters and retirees are a hot commodity for homebuilders in Goochland County.

Two developers are planning more than 200 new houses in Goochland – and each subdivision is targeting the 55-and-up crowd.

Swanson Ridge off Hockett Road is being developed by Atack Properties, run by longtime local developer Bob Atack. About five miles away, Parkside Village is being developed off Pouncey Tract Road by a team led by Scott Gaeser.

They’re two of several new housing developments in the works in Goochland County and the latest in the Richmond market aiming to attract older buyers with the pitch of maintenance-free living.
