55+ Active Adult Communities in Hampton Roads, VA

After a recent prospect came to town looking for a home in a 55+ community in Williamsburg I assumed as I always do that they would want to live here in Williamsburg, VA.  To my surprise they chose VA Beach over Williamsburg. ( A rare occurrence) It seems that they wanted to be closer to their kids who live in VA Beach so they purchased a home in West Neck a 55+ golf community in  Virginia Beach, Virginia .The West Neck community sits on a quiet 620 acres and features a beautiful 18 hole, 72-par, Arnold Palmer Signature golf course, designed by Arnold Palmer and Palmer Course Design Company, that presents holes ranging from 5,031 to 7,010 yards.  Eight distinct villages with a total of 930 homes comprise the West Neck  community.
