If you tour the condo communities in Williamsburg VA you will notice a certain similarity in quite a few. The reason being Franciscus Homes built most of them including; Claiborne, Bristol Commons, Fairway Villas, Braemar Creek and la Fontaine.

Note :Although these are condos from the exterior they look like town homes.

claibornecondowilliamsburg A townhouse is like a house in that the owner owns both the structure and the land on which it sits; but it is not free-standing, so “the land on which it sits” is limited to the front and back yards. Town homes are connected to one another in a row, and are usually one,two or three stories tall. It is important to note that townhouse refers to the type of house and not to the type of ownership.  The ownership responsibility in a townhouse (townhome) is the same as for a house; however, there may be differing circumstances from development to development, city to city or state to state regarding who owns the outside walls, roof, etc. of the structure which must be verified with local authorities.

claiborneentrance_edited Like townhouses, condominiums are attached to one another. If you own a condo, you do not own the land surrounding your living space. A condo owner owns only the unit itself, which is taxed as an individual entity, and sometimes a percentage of the common areas of the community.  It is important to note that condominium (condo) refers only to type of ownership and is NOT a type of house.

Claiborne offers it’s residents a beautiful clubhouse with outdoor terrace and walking trails throughout the community. There are approximately  120 homes in the community.

claiborne_edited The monthly condo/home owner fee in Claiborne  is $165 . It covers all common Area Maintenance ( entrances, Clubhouse , all exterior home maintenance , all exterior lawn maintenance and some insurance.
Claiborne Condos make excellent second home options in Williamsburg with their all inclusive maintenance .

History:

The original White Hall Tavern was built in 1805 by William Geddy, who was an upper middle class planter and blacksmith. He built the home for his son (james Geddy) who was a silversmith, and the purpose of the home was to represent “the improving quality of housing for all Virginians during the early Republican period.” Tax records have indicated that because William Geddy was a wealthy planter, he most likely possessed a number of adult slaves as well.

During the mid-1800s in the midst of the United States Civil War, the plantation home served as a site crucial to the Confederate Army. Due to its convenient location within a somewhat close proximity to Richmond, the capital of the Confederacy, it was a site that provided important intelligence gathering and distribution of information pertinent to the South’s advancement in the war.

The 200 acres of surrounding land had been in the family since the 1760’s. The United States Department of the Interior declared it a national historical landmark in 2007.
