Williamsburg VA Condos and Town homes

Question: We are interested in exploring housing options in Williamsburg, Va . We would like to be as close to the restored area of Colonial Williamsburg VA as possible. However, when I search for information on downtown living there, I only come up with communities that seem to reside out the town of Williamsburg. Are their any condo or town-home neighborhoods or communities closer into town near the college of William and Mary ? If you could give some general information on what options exist? Thank you in advance.


Answer: This is a question I am asked quite often. It’s surprising how many people dream about moving to Williamsburg Va. Some have had children attend school at William and Mary and grown to enjoy the city from numerous visits other simply like living amongst history and after visiting many time throughout the years finally make a decision to move. Some have been second home buyers who will test the waters before committing to full time living her in Williamsburg. The tax rate at .54 per $100 is one of the lowest rate around the area. It is almost half the rate of neighboring cities on the peninsula. I’m not sure what your price range is but the closest townhome/condos Would be Counselors Close neighborhood It has a very traditional Williamsburg Look and feel but is priced in the $500k + range.There are a few condo developments about 1 mile from the Colonial area of Williamsburg The Woodland off of Jamestown Rd, The Oaks off of South Henry near rt 199 both sell in the $250k + price range. There is Wyndham and Wyndham Plantation near Colonial Parkway off Capital Landing Rd that sells for the $300k-$400k price range. A little further away is Brandywyne a community of detached upscale homes with small yards. All yard maintenance is included in the homeowner fees at Brandywyne. Bristol Commons is another condo community in the city located near the new High Street Development. Prices there start in the low $200,000 for two bedroom condos. Further out still on the Bypass but still within the city limits of Williamsburg are Claiborne and Westgate Condos. Both start in the low $200,000 for two bedroom condos. The Village at Quarterpath is  a brand new community about 1/2 a mile from the restored area of Colonial Williamsburg. Both attached townhomes and detached homes. Prices for townhomes in Quarter Path start at $280,000 for two bedroom townhomes. Detached homes anywhere  close ( walking distance) to the restored area of Colonial Williamsburg ares going to be more expensive than townhomes/ condos a few miles away in James City County. You may want to consider New Town. Condos there start in the $230k price range for one bedrooms or $255,000+ for two bedroom condos. Bennington and Foundation Square are the two condo developments in New Town. Both offer elevators. Foundation Square has underground parking, BEnnington offers assigned carports for parking. Townhomes in New Town range from around $300,000 to $500,000. Square footage in these townhomes range from 1600 to over 3000. New Town is only 3-4 miles from the Colonial Area of Williamsburg has almost all of the conveniences you would need to live. Grocery Store ( Trader Joes just opened), Restaurants ( at last count there were 19+ places to eat in New Town) , Banks, Medical offices, Movie theater, Barnes & Noble and many more shops. Bus service is available to other areas of Williamsburg VA
High Street is a brand new development just being developed in the City of Williamsburg on Bypass Rd about 2 miles from the Restored area of CW. It will feature Townhomes with starting prices in the high $400’s. It will be another planned community ( like New Town) but on a smaller scale, featuring shops , restaurants,movie theater. If you want to consider condos a little farther from the center of town there are numerous communities with prices starting in the low $200,000’s. It only takes a few hours to tour all of the developments in the area .Please contact  me if you would like to take a brief tour and see all of the available options for housing in Williamsburg VA.

I will post a few photos of each condo and town home neighborhood in Williamsburg, Virginia so that you can get a feel for each area/ neighborhood.
