Many 55+ communities offer all the amenities residents could want. While not having to drive to a gym or pool is convenient, so is having a great place to eat nearby. Here are four Virginia communities that have their own restaurants, for dining out made easy.
Ford's Colony - Williamsburg
Ford’s Colony in Williamsburg, Virginia is more than a collection of houses or a neighborhood; it is truly a community. With over 3,000 homes spanning single-family, attached, and condo models, each neighborhood within the active adult community has its’ own vibe.
The Country Club offers three dining options. The Ford's Colony Dining Room is open for members of the golf club exclusively. Murdoch’s restaurant is open to non-members and features American bistro fare. Residents can also enjoy a cocktail at the new Oasis Patio at the Club.
Heritage Hunt - Gainesville
Located in Gainesville, Virginia outside of Washington, D.C., Heritage Hunt is a luxurious community of almost 1,900 homes. The homes for resale include single-family homes, attached homes, and condos ranging from two to five bedrooms.
The community includes two clubhouses which both offer dining options for residents. Residents can enjoy dining at the country club at the Heritage Hunt Clubhouse next to the golf course or at the grill in the restored historic Marsh Mansion.
Trilogy® at Lake Frederick - Lake Frederick
Trilogy at Lake Frederick is an active adult community located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Winchester, Virginia. Prospective residents can choose from homes built by Landsdowne offered for resale or new builds by Shea Homes.
The Shenandoah Club, a two-building complex that makes up the clubhouse and fitness center, includes a restaurant for dining and a coffee shop for quick bites. For those who want to learn to cook, the clubhouse also includes a gourmet demonstration kitchen.
The Villages at West Neck - Virginia Beach
The Villages at West Neck includes almost 1,000 homes built between 2001 and 2014. The condos, attached, and single-family homes are offered for resale and range from 1,500 to 2,500 square feet. While the Virginia Beach and Norfolk area offer many places for dining out, having a restaurant within walking distance is a great amenity of the community. The Signature Grille at West Neck Golf Clubhouse at the Arnold Palmer golf course offers the breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
