Colonial Williamsburg VA Neighborhoods

I am planning to move to Williamsburg in the spring, but all the houses I see for sale are in subdivisions. I’m a history buff and I’d like to live where I can walk to Colonial Williamsburg, go to the farmer’s market on Sat, etc. I’ve seen beautiful houses near that area but never see them for sale.  There are numerous subdivisions within a short walk to Colonial Williamsburg and William ans Mary. Most of the homes were built from the late 1980’s and onward. The oldest homes sold that I can find a record of in the last 10 years were all built after 1900. You have to realize when Colonial Williamsburg was restored in the 1930’s.the town was in pretty bad shape. That was the reason  Rev. Goodwin wanted to save the town. He saw it disintegrating…

Colonial Williamsburg Foundation owns most if not all of the homes in the restored area. Two of the homes sold that were early 1900’s were owned by them.

There are a variety of newer neighborhoods within walking distance to the restored area of Colonial Williamsburg and William and Mary.  Port Anne, Holly, Walnut Hills, Yorkshire, Rich Neck Heights, Indian Springs, The Woods, Counselors Close, Richmond Hill are just a few of these neighborhoods.  Walnut Hills is the only one with older homes dating from the 1930’s and up. Prices will range from $500k to $1,800,000.   Although the homes are not older most are Colonials. Some more traditional than others with historic touches throughout.
