The Groves at New Kent is a new active adult community located about half an hour from both Williamsburg and Richmond, affording its homeowners easy access to the best of two cities. This property was originally developed by K. Hovnanian but is being completed by Ryan Homes, and it will have 155 new and resale single-family homes upon completion. Homes are priced from the low $300s to the mid $400s, and that’s a small price to pay for these quality floor plans plus the outstanding community amenities.
