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.

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.

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 .

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.
