Featured Builder

As a third-generation woodworker, Jeff, of J.H. Fisher Construction, began showing an interest in building while he was still a young child.  "Some of my earliest memories are of my father’s woodshop," says Jeff of his childhood days in Chatham, which included learning how to do dovetail joinery and building some of the best forts in the neighborhood. "My forts had skylights, were waterproof, and had screened windows," recalls Jeff.  Looking back, Jeff realizes that he gets the same sense of satisfaction from building today that he did as a child. "In a nutshell, it’s about passion," says Jeff. "To me, that word encompasses everything that is important about building. When people are able to follow their dreams, it shows." Read More About J.H.

Why are New Homes Getting so Big? Look at Who’s Buying Them

Though the average size of new homes keeps getting bigger, there is more to this home buying trend than meets the eye, according to Census Bureau data presented by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) during the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas in early February.

"The average home size has continued to rise for the past four years, from 2,362 square feet in 2009 to 2,679 square feet in 2013," said Rose Quint, NAHB assistant vice president for survey research.

The share of new homes with at least four bedrooms has also been on an upward trend, rising from 34 percent in 2009 to 48 percent last year.

Meanwhile the percent of homes with at least three full bathrooms has gone from 23 percent in 2010 to 35 percent in 2013, and the share of homes with three-plus garages has climbed from 16 percent in 2010 to 22 percent last year.

The upward trend also applies to the percentage of two-story single-family homes started, with the share steadily rising from 51 percent in 2009 to 60 percent in 2013.

As homes get bigger, so does the average sales price, rising from $248,000 in 2009 to $318,000 in 2013. To find out why homes are getting so big you need to look at who is buying them.

"It requires a high credit score and a nice income to qualify for a mortgage," said Quint, who noted that the spread between the average Experian credit score of all U.S. consumers and the average home borrower’s score has risen from 33 points in the early 2000s to 58 points in 2013.

The median income of new-home buyers has steadily climbed from $91,768 in 2005 to $107,607 in 2011.

During the same period, the number of new-home sales has dramatically declined, from 1.28 million to 306,000.

"There are not as many people who have the income that can qualify for a new home," said Quint.

Most Popular Features in 2014 Homes

The features that builders are most likely to include in a typical single-family home this year are a walk-in closet in the master bedroom, low-e windows, a laundry room and a great room, according to the latest survey by NAHB.

Energy-efficiency is also a key theme, as Energy-Star rated appliances, programmable thermostats and Energy-Star rated windows also rank high on the list.

According to builders, granite countertops, a double-sink and a central island will likely make the cut in the kitchen as well as a linen closet and a private toilet in the bathroom.

Other features that builders are likely to include are first-floor ceilings at least nine-feet high, a front porch, exterior lighting and a patio.

Conversely, the most unlikely features to show up in 2014 homes are laminate kitchen countertops, an outdoor kitchen, an outdoor fireplace, a sunroom, a two-story family room, a media room, a two-story foyer and a whirlpool in the master bathroom.

A variety of new homes are available for sale in the Williamsburg VA. These include condos., town homes, and single family detached homes. Mr Williamsburg is very familiar with all of the locations and builders and would be happy to assist you in finding a home that’s right for you.

New home prices for homes in the Williamsburg area range from the $130′s for a condo in White Hall near Toano to $ 1 million + for a waterfront home in Uncles Neck.

Charlotte Park in New Town in Williamsburg, VA now offers detached homes..

Charlotte Park is the newest neighborhood to be announced in New Town  in Williamsburg VA.
.
charlotte park cottage

01grayfeaturedThis is a first-of-its-kind neighborhood for New Town. All previous neighborhoods in New Town ( Abbey Commons, Savannah Square, Chelsea Green have been attached/ town home neighborhoods. Home designs offered for the  detached single-family homes  will evoke the charm and allure of South Carolina’s coastal Low-country. The designs feature deep porches, steep pitched roofs, wide overhangs and dormers  in the true Southern tradition. Interiors are spacious, well lighted with plenty of windows, and just perfect for living family-style with hardwood floors and high ceilings.

UPDATE December 2011 

Nine detached homes are completed with four currently under contract and being built in Charlotte Park. . In the last 12 months, ( WMLS)  34 homes have sold in New Town .  This includes sales in Abbey Commons, Savannah Green, Foundation Square Condos and Bennington on the Green Condos. Nine. homes, town homes and condos are currently under contract making New Town neighborhood one of the most active in the Williamsburg VA/ James City County real estate market. As of today there are 33 active listings in New Town.

Oct 2010
Charlotte Park, New Town’s one and only neighborhood of detached, single-family homes is a certified success  Before the model home has even opened, four homes are already under contract. What’s the secret to this success? It’s a concept of going back home, back to the neighborhood, back to the rocker on the front porch, back to good old low country living where lemonade is a beverage of choice, neighbors have names, and kids have a yard to play in. Goodbye, MacMansion. Hello, Home Sweet Home.

Charlotte Park is a neighborhood of single family homes on tree-lined streets, all with front porches, and many options and floor plans to select from. Each home will overlook a green space or park, while alleys allow access to the rear of the homes and to the two-car garages. The neighborhood swimming pool, a walking path away, should be completed soon. Interiors offer such upscale amenities such as hardwood floors, granite countertops, cascades of natural light from many windows, and high ceilings are a few of the many architect-inspired innovations to contribute to the ambiance.

WMake New Twn Your Town, Williamsburg VAatch a short video showcasing the New Town area of Williamsburg VA

When completed, Charlotte Park will be a neighborhood of approximately 150 homes on tree-lined streets, all with front porches, and many options and floor plans to select from. Each home will overlook a green space or park, while alleys allow access to the rear of the homes their two-car garages. The neighborhood swimming pool, a walking path away, should be completed by summer 2012.

Interiors of the Charlotte Park homes offer such upscale amenities as hardwood floors, granite countertops, cascades of natural light from many windows, and high ceilings.

And the best amenity is that there’s absolutely no yard maintenance! Sell your lawn mower! What makes Charlotte Park so special and so in demand? The current homes under construction are designed by local architect Bob Magoon and the esteemed firm Allison Ramsey Architects, whose portfolio is an obvious call to action for more down home comfort and low maintenance. In the words of the architect, “We believe in making the spaces fit the family, rather than making the family fit into the spaces… in connecting indoors to the outdoors.”

Let’s take a tour. The Coosaw River Cottage offers  three or four bedrooms with a Master Suite on the first floor, an open and casual floor plan, an inviting front porch that longs for rocking chairs and swings, and an optional private screened rear porch are just a few of the many amenities that make The Coosaw a popular choice for young families as well as down-sizers.

Another home design is The Broad River Cottage. It has livability appeal galore with nine- or ten-foot ceilings, eight-foot deep porches, an open and very user-friendly floor plan, and a large rear deck perfect for entertaining.

This is a completely new style of home design for the Williamsburg area. It evokes a truly Southern essence, borrowed from the low country living of Virginia and North Carolina.

Albany

Each of the  homes will overlook  green spaces or park with large shade trees. The garages will be accessed by back alleys so no ugly garage doors will have to be seen from the front.

Phase 1 of Charlotte Park will feature 22 home sites. The homes will range in size from 1,500 sq. ft. to 3,500 sq. ft., and will have walking trails connecting the neighborhood to everything New Town has to offer. As with all of the other homes in New Town all yards and green spaces are maintenance free. Feeing you from the drudgery of yard-work. As of November 2011 prices  are starting in the $330,000’s .

Construction of the pool and clubhouse for New Town will hopefully be completed by next summer

Cottage in New Town, Williamsburg VA

New Town includes mixed-use development, traditional neighborhood design, and pedestrian friendly attributes, as it seeks to recreate the sociable traits of places built 70 to 100 years ago. With these traits in mind, New Town homes sit close to the street and incorporate front porches and balconies to encourage interaction among residents. The community includes homes, apartments, commercial and retail space, along with a small private school and several town green spaces.

New Town has fully embraced the idea of “new urbanism”, where neighborhoods are designed to be diverse, accessible, safe, and self-sustaining. Careful planning and development integrates residential, commercial and green space, enabling residents to live in a pedestrian setting, and live, work and play right within their own community.

Green parks, trails and open spaces surround the condos, apartments, and townhomes and soon to be built detached homes in New Town. Walking trails will allow residents plenty of places to jog, walk and bike.

Roseland announced some time ago that the number of townhouses at High Street would be reduced from 53 to 33. Replacing those townhouses will be an additional 108 condominium units on the south side of Treyburn Drive. That will also reduce the number of condo units in the proposed third phase of High Street along the north side of Treyburn by 88, so the total number of dwellings proposed for High Street remains constant at 574. Prices for the condos should run in the $200,000-$300,000’s.

The residential section of High Street includes 574 dwelling units: 191 rental apartments ( Sterling Manor -construction completed); 53 townhouses (preliminary plat approved in August 2005 – 16 have been completed); and 330 condominiums (not yet under construction).

This proposal is for  approval for the Treyburn Manor Condominiums, which will replace 20 of the 53 existing townhouse lots.

The Treyburn Manor Condominiums will be a four story condominium building  There will be three floors of condominiums above the parking level, with 36 units per floor, for a total of 108 units. The anticipated dwelling unit breakdown is 49 one bedroom units, eight one-bedroom + den units, 42 two-bedroom units, and nine two bedroom + den units.

The construction of the Treyburn Manor Condominiums will reduce the number of condominiums that can be built on the south side of Kings Manor Drive from the originally proposed 330 units to no more than 242 units based on the 574 dwelling unit maximum for the property. The condominiums are proposed to be built in two phases. The first phase of 57 units will include the portion of the condominium building fronting on Kings Manor Drive and Manor Boulevard. The second phase will include the remainder of the building fronting on Kings Manor Drive and Shadow Lane, as well as the clubhouse and swimming pool at the northeast corner of Treyburn Drive and Kings Manor Drive.

William and Mary to build Apartments/ Student Friendly Retail on Richmond Rd.

From an article in the Flat Hat News :

w&Mlogo Students at the College of William and Mary might soon have new housing options both on and off campus.

The College and its property management organization, the William and Mary Real Estate Foundation, are exploring plans to construct new dorm facilities at locations on the College’s campus and on property along Richmond Road.

“Yes, we’re planning to build something,” ResLife Director Deb Boykin said.

The College’s current plan calls for the construction of a student apartment complex adjacent to Wawa on land owned by the Real Estate Foundation.

The land, called the “Triangle Property,” consists of three buildings — the Thiemes House, which accommodates the College’s human resources office, the vacant “Master Craftsmen” building and a building that once housed the College’s finance office.

Real Estate Foundation Director Nancy Buchanan said the Richmond Rd. proposal differs from the College’s other recent ResLife construction projects.

“It’s not a dormitory, it’s apartments,” Buchanan said.

The complex would likely consist of 14 apartments and be able to house approximately 56 upperclassmen.

The plan also reserves space for the construction of student-friendly businesses within the complex.

“We’re not that far down the process yet, but right now we’re looking at a 24-hour diner and other student-friendly retail,” Buchanan said. “We’ve done surveys of students to find out what they would like to see brought in, and we try to match it with retailer interest.”

While the planned building will be the first mixed-use residential housing built at the College, other local universities have already built similar complexes.

“[Old Dominion University] and [Christopher Newport University] have condominium residential buildings with retail,” Boykin said.

While the development of new residential space is one of the College’s top priorities, the Richmond Rd. development is still in the early developmental stages.

The architectural design has not yet been submitted and the land must be rezoned before any construction
can begin.

Because the complex’s construction is being processed through the Real Estate Foundation instead of through the College itself, the construction must follow the City’s zoning laws.

“We’re just starting to work with an architect,” Buchanan said. “We haven’t signed a contract with a contractor, [and] because rezoning is involved, we’ll need to bring it to the City [of Williamsburg].”

The Real Estate Foundation’s ownership of the Triangle property complicates the manner in which the College may use any residential space built on the site.

“The College does not own the land by Wawa,” Vice President for Administration Anna Martin said. “We will have to master lease the building from [the Real Estate Foundation].”

Buchanan said that, while the leasing issue has been raised, no details have been discussed between the College and the Real Estate Foundation.

“Yes, the College will be leasing the student housing portion of the property,” Buchanan said. “We haven’t worked out those details [of the lease] yet. They’ll be determined by the cost of the project and the market.
They will be in line with other prices at the College.”

Recent disputes between the City and the College over students living off-campus could place the project’s development in jeopardy.

Although Buchanan said the City has been supportive of the plan so far.

“[The City has] been very supportive because they recognize the location is close to the College,” Buchanan said. “[And] it’s more of a business location than a residential location. It’s not in the middle of a residential neighborhood.”

While no plans have been finalized, Buchanan is confident the City will approve the Real Estate Foundation’s rezoning application, allowing the proposal to move forward.

“I think the likelihood [of construction] is very good, “Buchanan said. “It would not only provide more housing for students, which is what Williamsburg wants, but more importantly, it provides opportunities for students to socialize.”

While the College is not directly involved with the construction of the residential complex on Richmond Rd., administrators are planning for the construction of additional residential housing on campus.

“It is the wish of [President Reveley] that we add 200 beds on campus,” Martin said.

While the College would like to build an additional on campus dorm, its focus remains with completing the complex on Richmond Rd.

“It’s definitely behind the Triangle property in terms of timing,” Boykin said.

The proposal is included in the College’s biennial Six-Year Capital Layout Plan, which has been sent to Richmond for state approval.

“This is not in the strategic plan,” Martin said. “This is the Six-Year Capital Layout Plan we send to the state.

The state must always give us authority before we build anything. They make the determination and it changes from year to year.”

A site for the new dorm has not been chosen, but several potential sites remain from the plan that produced the Jamestown North and South dorms along Jamestown Road.

“When we built the Jamestown residences, there were several sites the architectural firm pointed out, but a site has not yet been picked,” Boykin said. “Some options include between Randolph and Yates, behind Du Pont and a third Jamestown.”

Jamestown North and South, the College’s newest dorms, currently hold 388 students combined.

According to Boykin, the proposed new dorm would not match the Jamestown dorms in terms of size or amenities.

“This wouldn’t be as high-end as Jamestown,” Boykin said. “Jamestown had a lot of features.”
Boykin said the new dorm would likely be reserved for upperclassmen, but the College’s housing needs could change before the new facility’s completion.

Accurate estimates of the project’s cost cannot be easily made until an architectural plan is selected and contract bids are made. However, the College expects the price to exceed $20 million.

“We have an estimate in the Six-Year Plan for about $21 million, but that’s just a first guess,” Martin said. “Until we have a design, we won’t know.”

The project’s future is largely dependent on whether the College can raise the necessary funds to finance construction.

ResLife’s status as an auxiliary function of the College prevents it from receiving any state funding, meaning the dorm would have to be privately financed.

“Because residence halls are auxiliary, we don’t get any state money for them at all,” Boykin said. “We would pay any debt from the room rents.”

One potential source of funds for the dorms construction would be to name the building after a private benefactor.

“If someone came forth and donated $21 million and said, ‘I want this building named after me,’ we’d be celebrating in the streets,” Boykin said.

The expected completion date of the Richmond Road complex is July 2011, while the on-campus dorm could be completed by 2015.

Williamsburg VA 2008 A Year In Review

From an article in the Va Gazette By Cortney Langley  Dec. 2008

The recession slowed the growth of housing and commerce for the first time in 10 years. Still, there was plenty left to propose and oppose.

James City County set out to revise the Comprehensive Plan with various forums and committees taking the public pulse.

A new slow-growth group called J4C produced research papers challenging various assumptions and projects. The outgoing Democratic majority tightened a James City ordinance to expand stream buffers to 300 feet instead of 100. The new Republican majority promptly unwound that and eventually compromised at 225 feet, then defeated the whole measure. The stream buffers were among many disputes in which four of the five members criticized each other as politically partisan. Almost 900 Ford’s Colony residents petitioned to block a big continuing care facility across the road as too big, generating too much traffic and burdening the HOA. They found a zoning loophole to support their case legally.

The HOA agreed not to sue when management backed down on applying full residential rights to those in a proposed senior care facility. Others still opposed the project on grounds of traffic and scale, even after it was scaled back from 944 units to 739. Despite a last-minute gimmick to stop it, the James City supervisors approved, but the financing dried up during the national credit crisis.

Also near Ford’s Colony, a plan for 240 workforce housing units on News Road was pulled back to weave it into the new Comp Plan. It was considered DOA after the continuing care controversy. Ford’s Colony announced Westport as 100 large homesites across Centerville Road but removed from the controversial continuing care facility.

Two-year assessments found York home values up an average of 15%. The Board of Supervisors reduced the real esate tax rate from 69.75 cents per $100 of assessed value to 65.75 cents.

York county administrator James McReynolds said he needed $26 million worth of expansion and new buildings for his various departments.

A new task force promised to have ideas on developing workforce housing by summer. Work languished, but the group plans to take up the mantle in 2009.

High Street scaled back 99 townhouses to 36 in the first phase as real estate sales continued soft. The Movie Tavern theater that was supposed to open by Labor Day was delayed to November, and then to March along with the retail shops. By year-end, two of five apartment buildings at High Street began to be occupied.

Two new sets of stoplights were erected for High Street, bringing the total in greater Williamsburg to 87. Yet very few were synchronized to keep traffic moving.

The Salvation Army set out on a feasibility study for a $6 million complex of teen center, child care, computer lab, food pantry and other services to the community. The site is on Richmond Road near 199.

An extended runway was ruled out at Williamsburg-Jamestown Airport, which seemed to scotch any federal subsidy for acquisition. By year-end, it was going to take more than $3 million to buy the airport or $16 million to rebuild elsewhere. Some citizens were adamantly against James City County putting up the money. The death of co-owner Jean Waltrip complicated matters.

Philip Morris completed the expansion and conversion of the Route 143 plant to make spit-free tobacco. 1,200 acres were put on the market by Williamsburg Pottery, though Kim Maloney clarified the business would remain intact. With no buyers at hand, the property was later taken off the market. Longtime farmer Don Hunt closed Hill Pleasant Farm. He had no plans to sell to developers but asked for the land-use designation to change to mixed-use with the Comp Plan update. The York supervisors compromised on requiring Kiln Creek Golf Club & Resort owner Dick Ashe to cut the grass of its abandoned nine-hole course.

Overcrowding worsened at Stonehouse Elementary, but a 9th school was still two years away.

Pockets of retail vacancies were showing up at Patriot Plaza and were persisting at Williamsburg Crossing.

A revised version of controversial condos were approved on South Henry Street despite criticism that they were out of scale.

Williamsburg Community Chapel spent $15 million to expand to 70,000 square feet with an auditorium for 1,500.

York denied its first mixed-use development of apartments and stores, on Route 17 at Battlefield Road. 10 four-story buildings for mixed use at Route 17 and Battle Road worried York residents as too massive.

The York supervisors were lobbied heavily to approve in a 3-2 vote a house on the Chesapeake Bay that was within the 100-foot Chesapeake Bay resource protection area.

The Honda dealership in Norge sought to expand, but neighbors complained of encroachment. Neighbors in Chisel Run protested Prime Outlets expanding across Olde Towne Road after two dozen older trees were cut down. James City had a raft of road projects, but the state budget was cut in half to $3.5 million. Two James City supervisors had second thoughts about approving a $50 million contract with Newport News Waterworks. It’s good for up to 5 million gallons a day. Water rates raised 12%- 15%, with more to come.

VDOT ramped up its traffic studies in ways that would cost developers more time and money, but slow-growth advocates hailed the move for reflecting a more cumulative impact.

J4C came up with six pages of ways to prevent flooding through improved draining. The crux of the problem was assigning responsibility for flooding after a development is built.

Three days of citizen meetings led to a vision of the Eastern State campus for mixed uses and housing around various mental health components. Sites emerged for at least one new school, an office park, apartments, “Geriatric Square” for research, and faculty housing.

Neighbors near Hubbard Lane protested expansion plans for a mini-warehouse behind James-York Plaza. The Planning Commission recommended denial of the proposal and the application has yet to go to the Board of Supervisors.

Seasons Trace sought a second road out of the subdivision in the event of hurricane flooding.

The city budget was ho-hum except for a 15% hike in water rates to pay Newport News Waterworks in times of need. Last year the rates went up 10% and more hikes are coming, in part to cover costs of the new King William Reservoir. Geologist Gerald Johnson lost his fight to save the last patch of 5-million-year-old fossils along the bluffs of the James River. Kingsmill wanted the site for more homes.

Williamsburg VA Real Estate High Street Update

Williamsburg virginia real estate high street Town Homes

Williamsburg virginia real estate high street Town Homes

WILLIAMSBURG VA From an article in the VA Gazette by Steve Vaughn, Dec, 17 2008

  —High Street has a new real estate agent for the residential properties and a new emphasis as well.

 Dan Aston of Roseland Property Co., the developer of High Street, said market demand has spurred construction of the condos sooner than planned, starting in spring.

 

“The demographics that we’re appealing to tell us that’s what we want, so we’ll be starting them sooner than we originally planned,” he said.

Sixteen townhomes are built and another 16 are planned. William E. Wood had been handling sales of the townhomes.

“The contract was up and we chose to go with Prudential McCardle instead,” Aston said. Roseland itself manages rental of the the King’s Manor apartments, which are already open.

Roseland will also manage the more than 200,000 feet of commercial space in High Street, although Aston said the company uses a nationally known commercial leasing agent based in Michigan to help attract clients.

The first of those commercial clients will open soon. Five Guys Burgers & Fries ( my favorite) is opening Jan. 5. There’s also a firm date for the opening of High Street’s anchor attraction, the Movie Tavern theater. It will open March 20.

High Street’s only other announced commercial tenant, Kilwin’s ice cream parlor, should open prior to the theater, according to Aston.

Other possibilities include coffeehouses, more restaurants and possibly a supermarket

Williamsburg VA Real Estate Colonial Williamsburg Foundation to donate Conservation Easment to Williamsburg Land Conservancy

 John Womeldorf is Mr. Williamsburg, sharing his thoughts, real estate expertise, and “all things Williamsburg” in an effort to spread the word that Williamsburg, Virginia is the greatest place on earth to live!

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. ― The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation will donate a conservation easement to the Williamsburg Land Conservancy on 82 acres of land east of Route 132.  The easement will provide permanent viewshed protection for a three-quarter mile segment of highway between Queens Creek and Bypass Road.  Most of the property, 68 acres, is located in York County with a smaller portion, 14 acres, lying in the City of Williamsburg.

“In conjunction with the conservation easement on 230 acres across Route 132 previously granted to the Williamsburg Land Conservancy, this conservation easement will protect scenic views along both sides of the entry to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area from Interstate 64,” said Foundation President Colin G. Campbell.

Like the earlier easement, also donated to the Williamsburg Land Conservancy, this conservation easement will prohibit development of the property and preserve its predominantly wooded character.

“The Conservancy is excited to work once again with Colonial Williamsburg to protect a key scenic property,” said Tim Cleary, chairman of the Williamsburg Land Conservancy’s board of directors. “We commend the Foundation and its board for their commitment to conservation.” 

Caren Schumacher, executive Director of the Williamsburg Land Conservancy, noted that Route 132 is designated as a scenic entry corridor on both the City of Williamsburg and York County comprehensive plans.

The property, acquired by The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in 1956, contains a mature deciduous forest and 25 acres of wetlands bordering Queens Creek and its tributaries.  An archaeological survey indicated evidence of historic and prehistoric archaeological resources on the property.

Founded in 1990, the Williamsburg Land Conservancy was the first private non-profit land trust in Virginia incorporated specifically to use the provisions of the Virginia Conservation Easement Act.  The conservancy is dedicated to protecting and preserving significant natural, scenic, agricultural and historic land in the James and York Rivers watersheds.  The conservancy strives to maintain the character and ambiance of the area through a combination of land preservation tools, education and advocacy programs, and shaping public policy.

This donation represents the second large easement donated to the Williamsburg Land Conservancy within the last 60 days.  In November, the group accepted a 190-acre conservation easement in upper James City County.  With the addition of the property east of Route 132, the Conservancy will protect a total of 3,300 acres in the Historic Triangle area.

Established in 1926, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is the not-for-profit educational institution that preserves and operates the restored 18th-century Revolutionary capital of Virginia.  Williamsburg is located 150 miles south of Washington, D.C., off Interstate 64.

Drugstore plans withdrawn in Norge

 From the Va Gazette 11/1/08 Courtney Langley

Plans for a new Walgreens at the Norge Candle Factory site have been withdrawn, another indicator of the recession arriving. Retailers are especially hard hit as consumer spending, which makes up about 70% of economic activity, dropped below 1980 levels July-September, according to government figures.

Walgreens’ special use permit passed Planning Commission scrutiny last month but was pulled before the supervisors got a look. “I just know that the developer and property owners are two separate entities and they both asked us to pull the application,” said Chris Basic of AES Consulting Engineers, who had filed for the permit. “I wasn’t really given much of an explanation as to why.”

The pullback comes amid speculation that businesses in New Town, including the Wal- Mart’s Neighborhood Market, has been delayed. A company spokesman denied that this week, saying that plans for a new unit at Settler’s Market remain.

 Comments from Golfers at Colonial Heritage:

 2008  Best secret in Williamsburg!!

-Beautiful, well-maintained, chess game.

Yardage book is a must. Luckily, they handed me one when I paid.
Study the book carefully and decide your strategy all the way to the green BEFORE you put your tee in the ground!
This is not a “grip it and rip it” course. On several holes, you really need to weigh risk/ reward before you pull out the driver. Many people complain about this course being too hard– but it is not at all, if you THINK first!

Best thing about it…. it’s empty! I played last weekend (Labor Day). Saturday I played 9 holes, teed off around 5:30. Sunday I played 18, starting around 4. I did not see another person on the course. No Exaggeration!

If you want a beautiful chess game of a golf course all to yourself, you gotta try this place!

(I debated quite a bit about sharing my secret, but its too good not to share. Plus, I’d hate for them to close because of lack of business, it’s obvious they put a lot of money into the maintenance. So, PLEASE don’t come when I’m there… I like it empty.)

 2008
 

We were a female and a new male golfer, and we played this challenging – gorgeous! – course in July, ’08 in 106 degree weather. It was a fantastic golf course/experience, and we will be sure to recommend the course to all our friends. In fact, we’d even consider moving to the community – just to have more access to the course. It is spectacular!

ProShop personnel were friendly and helpful, and there was a valuable booklet available for purchase that gave excellent descriptions of each hole – and was available for only $1.00!!!

Final comment – don’t be intimidated. It’s a challenging course, but it’s well within the reach of players who are aware of their own capabilities and willing to let better players play-thru and enjoy their own game.

2008
Beautiful and deceptive, some will say too tricky, and I will guarantee it kicks your butt by ten strokes more than you usually shoot. Too many blind shots make it imperative to have a map of the hole or caddy neither of which are provided. (You do get a pin placement map but that is it). My heart hurts to see such a beautiful course falling to recession with a skeleton staff, no on course attendants, and a cloud of doom on the faces of the few remaining workers.
2008
Gorgeous course! Local knowledge a huge plus. Greens like pool table tops, yet very fair.
2007
wow, what a beautiful course! very challenging. must hit fairways to score well. excellent!

Williamsburg Va Real Estate Growth Update

From an article in the Va Gazette

What will the rolling landscape of James City County Virginia’s Stonehouse District look like with three times the number of today’s homes? Hard to imagine.One of the side effects of the new rooftops may also be increased activism. Today most of the slowgrowth lobby is concentrated in Powhatan and Jamestown districts. “Because the growth has been focused in those areas, there have been a lot more issues around which galvanize people,” Krapf said. “As the growth demand turns to the upper county, you’ll probably see a lot more activity on the part of those groups served by public water. Much of the upper county relies on wells for drinking water. “It’s far too early to talk about expanding the [Primary Service Area} at this point,”  Stonehouse supervisor Jim Kennedy said. “We need to be looking at new technologies and water supply, such as reclaimed water systems,” 

Last year the James City County’s Real Estate Assessments Division assessed 4,825 parcels in Stonehouse, the westernmost of five magisterial districts.

More than 5,000 new housing units are approved and under way, according to a James City County Citizens’ report on cumulative growth.

Beyond that, another 5,500 are approved but not yet started. New housing of that magnitude seems far-fetched in the middle of a real estate slump, but Stonehouse remains a hot market for $200,000 homes . The population of the county could drastically shift within 20 years as Villages at White Hall, Jennings Way, Michelle Point, Stonehouse and Colonial Heritage build out. On the commercial side, Stonehouse is expected to add about 3.8 million square feet of shops, stores and restaurants.

The Stonehouse area of the county is definitely going to get the brunt of the growth.Some serious consideration needs to be given to the road structure that supports it, as well as the water situation. 

Plans for the Stonehouse development once included using reclaimed water, but were abandoned because of cost.

Despite efforts to control growth, there is still plenty of room. A good portion of the Williamsburg Pottery tract is in the district, as is the neighboring Hunt farm property. Both would provide large development opportunities. “It’s not just the Hunt property,” Kennedy added. “There’s also Anderson’s corner.” Planning Commission member Rich Krapf lives in the district and cautions not to overreact. “The buildout schedule could take years to achieve,” he said. “So people forget that that’s been approved. Then the new owners come in and people say, ‘That’s new growth and we don’t want new growth.’Yet it’s a 20-yearold project. That’s where so many citizen groups are raising the flag about cumulative impacts.”

The housing market is a wild card, though. Because of the downturn, Colonial Heritage construction has slowed to a trickle and developers throughout the county are not meeting building projections.

Typically, each phase in a development depends on the success of the previous phases. In a flagging market, growth stalls and plans change. “The whole county has time to breathe,” Kennedy said. “Certainly this Comprehensive Plan is critical.” 

Kennedy said that Stonehouse and its development are different from the other districts. “More people in this district are property rights people than in other areas in the county, because they are large property owners.

They don’t want to see the commercialization of the Stonehouse district either, but they certainly want to protect their interests. We’re ‘a little bit country’ out here, and we like it that way, for the most part.” “Even with the growth likely to occur, we’d still like to see the rural character retained out there,” Kadec said of J4C. “It may not be possible, but it sure would be nice.” Kadec believes the county can balance the rooftops by encouraging equine-related businesses, agri-tourism, and other industries that make preservation profitable. The same sentiment was mentioned frequently by residents recently in Comprehensive Plan meetings in the upper county. “
