lafontaineviewIf you tour the condo communities in Williamsburg VA you will notice a certain similarity in quite a few. The reason being Franciscus Homes built most of them including; La Fontaine, Claiborne, Bristol Commons, Fairway Villas and Braemar Creek.

Note :Although these are condos from the exterior they look like town homes.

  What’s the difference you ask ? Well ,a townhouse is like a house in that the owner owns both the structure and the land on which it sits; but it is not free-standing, so "the land on which it sits" is limited to the front and back yards. la fontaine pool Town homes are connected to one another in a row, and are usually one,two or three stories tall. It is important to note that townhouse refers to the type of house and not to the type of ownership.  The ownership responsibility in a townhouse (townhome) is the same as for a house; however, there may be differing circumstances from development to development, city to city or state to state regarding who owns the outside walls, roof, etc. of the structure which must be verified with local authorities.

Like townhouses, condominiums are attached to one another. If you own a la-fontaine_condos-williamsburg condo, you do not own the land surrounding your living space. A condo owner owns only the unit itself, which is taxed as an individual entity, and sometimes a percentage of the common areas of the community.  It is important to note that condominium (condo) refers only to type of ownership and is NOT a type of house.

If that doesn’t make sense send me an email for further clarification. John@MrWilliamsburg.com
