On a warm spring day, a chartreuse curtain frames Corbett Manor, an enclave of seven home sites on 4 1/2 acres in Springfield, Va. The houses will line Edward Carr Court, which ends in a cul-de-sac. Many of the lots back to a conservation protection area with trees that are leafing out into a green canopy. Builder Christopher Cos. is putting up an intimate community of two-story, single-family houses with two-car garages on 6,500- to 7,500-square-foot lots 14 miles southwest of the District in Fairfax County. Nearly three acres will remain open space.
