A question I am often asked is “ Are there any detached home communities in Williamsburg where all the outside lawn and home maintenance is taken care of ? I am tired of mowing the yard, fertilizing the yard, painting the house and raking leaves. Life is too short to spend my few spare hours doing these tasks.
To answer the question there are numerous condo communities and some town home developments that commonly take care of all or most outside chores.
Finding a detached home is little more difficult. Brandon Woods is one of the few developments in Williamsburg that fit the bill. The other detached home communities in the area that include lawn maintenance and/ or exterior home maintenance or both are The Settlement at Powhatan Creek, Brandywyne, Nottinghamshire in Fords Colony, Kensington Woods, New Town/ Charlotte Park, Orchard Hill @ Stonehouse and a few at Waterford, Villages at Powhatan in Powhatan Secondary .
Conveniently located near the Five Forks area of Williamsburg/ James City County Brandon Woods offers the spaciousness and elegance of a single-family home combined with the ease of condominium living, with exterior maintenance and lawn care provided by the home owners association. One of only a handful of detached homes that offer this luxury.
This premier residential community includes 110 freestanding detached homes located in the heart of Williamsburg/ James City County, VA.. Four different home plan/ models were built including the Brandon, Chelsea Darden and the Avery . Homes here range in size from 2400 to 2,700 square feet.
The community is accessible from both Ironbound Rd and John Tyler Highway (Rt 5) . It is characterized by it’s tree lined streets , rolling hills and quick access to nearby stores, restaurants and services at the nearby Five Forks, New Town and Monticello Marketplace retail centers. The community set on 50 acres was built from 2000-2005.
These two-story Colonial style homes feature two car attached garages, decks, and an exposed aggregate driveways and sidewalks. Interior features include a fireplace, crown and chair molding, whirlpool tubs in the master baths, raised panel kitchen cabinets with custom countertops, and oak flooring in selected areas. Three of the four models offered first floor master bedrooms.
The Master Plan for the Brandon Woods development required that the developer create natural wooded buffers along the perimeter of the neighborhood to preserve its privacy. These wooded green-space areas extend 75 feet in depth between the homes and the adjacent neighborhoods of Graylin Woods to the east, the Foxes subdivision to the north, and the Baron Woods subdivision to the west. Additionally a one hundred-fifty feet deep wooded buffer exists along the Route 5 and Ironbound Rd frontage of the community.
