Williamsburg Virginia

Moving to/ Relocating/ Retiring in Historic Williamsburg, Virginia.With a rare combination of historic charm, fabulous entertainment and breathtaking natural beauty, Williamsburg is unlike any other city in America. Center stage for the birth of our nation, it forms a third of Virginia’s “Historic Triangle,” one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.


But while Williamsburg’s celebrated history is an enormous draw, there’s so much more. This highly accessible city is just a short drive from Virginia’s capital city in Richmond, the major U.S. port of Newport News and popular oceanfront resort Virginia Beach. It also offers exclusive accommodations, fine dining, award-winning amusement parks, and exceptional shopping and golf. More than any other area in the country, Williamsburg offers the best of yesterday and today for an experience that truly has something for everyone.

Historical Importance

Of the many things for which Williamsburg is deservedly known, first and foremost is its rich history. The city’s story begins in 1633, when English colonists founded the settlement that was soon to be Williamsburg. The city went on to become a major political, cultural and social center throughout the colonial era. It soon became an academic center, too, with the founding of the College of William and Mary. The college, established in 1693, is one of the oldest in the country, second only to Harvard University. Williamsburg also served as Virginia’s state capital for a century, from 1699, when it was renamed in honor of William III, until Richmond was made capital in 1799.

Williamsburg’s continued relevance in the modern era was assured in 1926, when it attracted the attention of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Thanks to the billionaire philanthropist’s desire to restore and preserve the city to its colonial era appearance, Williamsburg is today a world-renowned living museum of America’s early history.


Williamsburg is highly accessible to a number of major Virginia cities. Richmond, the state’s capital and one of its largest cities, is just 50 miles and less than an hour’s drive away on I-64 West. Norfolk, a leading U.S. port and Virginia’s second-largest city, is just 55 miles and an hour’s drive away on I-64 East. Newport News is a half hour away along I-64 East, and major metropolitan area Northern Virginia is 150 miles and two and a half hours away via I-95 North.

Thinking of moving to Williamsburg Virginia

Williamsburg Virginia Real Estate

What if?


Have you ever wondered if there really is a “perfect” place to live?


What if…there was a place to live that enjoyed a moderate climate and the absolute best display of all four seasons?  A place with an average summer temperature of 87 degrees…spectacular fall foliage…mild winters, promising one or two snows- just enough to feel that Old man Winter nipped at your heels, but not enough to feel snowbound…and a Spring complete with spectacular azaleas, budding daffodils, dogwoods and Bradford pear trees everywhere you look.


What if…there was a peninsula bordered by sparkling waters…the Chesapeake Bay’s splendor and bounty to the East…the York river to the North…the James river to the South…plus tributaries, winding creeks and untouched marshes.  Travel bridges and ferries, visit a variety of marinas , spot blue heron and osprey while sailing and boating…beaches, beaches, everywhere.


What if…it were a college town with all the fun that delivers…chilly autumn football games…the Greenleafe café…Shakespeare festivals…even free courses for retired residents.  The second oldest college in the country and recently lauded as the #4 best value in education, William and Mary is not only a beautiful campus, but it has made dedicated alumni of all of us, whether we attended or not.


What if…you could close your eyes and transport  yourself back 300 years…you could worship in the same church as John Adams…enjoy gambols in the taverns of Colonial Williamsburg…you’re a short drive to the Jamestown settlement or the American Revolution’s Yorktown battlefields via the scenic twenty three miles of the Colonial Parkway.  Strolling the streets of downtown Williamsburg is a historic adventure and you just may be serenaded by the Fife and Drum corps!  Williamsburg residents enjoy Good Neighbor passes, giving them  access to everything Colonial Williamsburg has to offer.


What if…that town was nestled half way between Washington DC and the Outer Banks of North Carolina…just a short drive to opera, the Virginia symphony, museums, concerts and plenty of shopping.  One hour from the oceanfront of Virginia Beach and two hours from the Blue Ridge Mountains, there is something for everyone.  Local realtors affectionately refer to “half-backs”…those who had retired to Florida from up North, but decided that they preferred a more centrally located town with more to offer.


What if…every day around town was an adventure.  You could savor a fabulous farmer’s market in season, exhaust the kids at Busch Gardens/Water Country, watch crab races at local downtown eateries, experience art festivals and concerts at our recently rehabbed outdoor amphitheatre.  Sports and recreation options are vast including some of the best golf in the country, miles of mountain biking/trail running/hiking and excellent fishing, crabbing and kayaking.


And…what if…you could live in a place like this and it was affordable?  Sound too good to be true?  It’s not.  Relative to the Northeast or West coast, Williamsburg real estate is a bargain.  Add a low property tax rate to that (less than 60 cents per $100 of assessed value in Williamsburg proper), and you have an ideal place to call home.


Depending on what interests you…a low maintenance condo or a Williamsburg style cape cod, average sales prices in Williamsburg are in the mid 300’s.  If you’re a golfer, you have a number of the country’s finest golf communities from which to choose (Kingsmill, which hosts the LPGA each Spring, Fords’s Colony, Governor’s Land and others).    If you prefer an affordable 55 and older community, we have those too.


It’s no wonder that  Money Magazine named Williamsburg one of the Top Five Places in America to retire last year!

The key to finding the right home and neighborhood in Williamsburg is first to find the right Realtor. “ John was outstanding! We move every three years, so we have dealt with many realtors– John was by far the best. I would refer him to anyone! John was there for every phone call and email–he always responded in a timely manner. I loved him sending updated photos the most–since we bought sight unseen. John always went above and beyond for us–there wasn’t anything he didn’t do! He even video taped the drive from the neighborhood entrance to the house and sent it to us! Thank you, thank you, thank you. From beginning to end, John was friendly, helpful, professional and fun to work with!”
