Read what Homeowners at The Settlement are saying
“The location of The Settlement is great for a quick lunch or a quick trip to the store,” says Dick Yenni, who moved here about six weeks ago from Season’s Trace with his wife, Liz. “We looked at several communities in the Williamsburg area and didn’t find as many of the features we desired until we looked at The Settlement.”
Perry and Nancy Stone, the second homeowners to move in, like the leisure lifestyle at The Settlement at Powhatan Creek. “We have no yard work – that’s one of the major things,” Nancy Stone says. The Stones also appreciate the convenient location. “It’s only five minutes farther down the road to Governor’s Land where we lived before, but it seems like we’re a lot closer in. It feels closer to everything.” “My husband uses the workout room and I swim laps,” Nancy Stone says. “When the weather is nice, we have met at the clubhouse with some neighbors for some wine.” Yenni, a retired NASA research pilot, likes to keep active and work out – and the club offers plenty of options. “They have an indoor and an outdoor pool,” he says. “The indoor pool is good for swimming laps. The clubhouse has a well equipped exercise room with all the machines.”
Sisters Nancy and Rosemary Nevin had always loved visiting Williamsburg and were thrilled to be able to move here. “We found a house plan that had two master bedroom suites,” Nancy Nevin says. “Once we got inside the model, we saw the inside was even better than the outside. We also have a guest bedroom and bathroom, a sunroom in the back, a kitchen/dining room and a library off the living room. We also had an elevator put in.” The Nevins had high praise for Harbin, who worked to make sure that Rosemary Nevin could access the house under construction even as she was recovering from knee surgery. “They went out of their way to be helpful,” Nancy Nevin says. “One worker even built a ramp so she could get into the house to see everything. Working with the Harbin group was fabulous.” The Nevins are still settling in, but are already enjoying the amenities at The Settlement. “I’ve never lived in a place that has both an indoor and an outdoor pool, let alone an exercise room that has the equipment this one does,” Nancy Nevin says. “I also like the whole area because you can walk without worrying. We’re extremely happy here.
