    FREDERICKSBURG, Va., April 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hazel Land
 Companies, Inc. and their Hazel Homes division has announced the Official
 Grand Opening of Hopyard Hall, the unprecedented Clubhouse in their new
 Hopyard Farm community in King George County, VA, that takes the concept of
 residential recreation amenities to a new level. Hopyard Farm is a country
 club style community along the Rappahannock River, just a few miles outside
 of Fredericksburg, and with its new Clubhouse -- combined with its
 riverfront location and overall land plan -- is unlike anything else in
 metro Washington, DC's southern suburbs. On Saturday, May 17th, the
 community will hold a Grand Opening celebration and Homebuying Open House
 to kick off an energetic summer for Hopyard residents and interested home
     The new Hopyard Hall Clubhouse epitomizes the resort-quality design
 plan of the Hopyard Farm community. Moreover, its debut at such an early
 stage of the community's development speaks to the emphasis on health,
 wellness and resident involvement that Hazel Land is placing on this
     Hopyard Hall is a 10,000 square foot facility -- very large in
 comparison to typical clubhouses or recreation centers in master-planned
 communities in the National Capital area. Set on the Rappahannock River
 shoreline in the center of the Hopyard Farm community, Hopyard Hall
 includes a fitness center, swimming pools, a tennis court, a playground, a
 media room and a business center. Nature trails wind through the community,
 encircle the clubhouse and lead to a nature overlook on the river's edge. A
 community boat ramp also gives residents a convenient put-in spot for
 afternoons on the scenic Rappahannock.
     "Hopyard Farm is unlike any other community in the area, and it was
 imperative that the recreation facility here be a real showpiece. Hopyard
 Hall will definitely become the heart of the community." said Stephen
 Norair, CEO of Hazel Land Companies. "We also wanted to open Hopyard Hall
 as soon as possible so that even the first residents at Hopyard Farm could
 enjoy it. Often, community recreation facilities are the last elements of a
 community that developers build, but we didn't want our homebuyers to have
 to wait to fully enjoy the Hopyard Farm lifestyle," Norair explained.
     The Hopyard Farm Homebuying Open House and Clubhouse Grand Opening on
 Saturday, May 17th will include refreshments, door prizes and community
 tours. Hopyard Farm is designed to protect and enhance the Rappahannock
 River and the surrounding environment. When complete, Hopyard Farm will
 include approximately 900 new executive and estate style single-family
 homes. Home prices start in the upper $200s.
