Ford's Colony Reviews
- George R.|January 21, 2017Ford's Colony is the premier active adult community in Virginia. If you want custom homes built the way you want, this is the community for you. Luxury, style, sophistication, you name it. The amenities are incredible, but unlike many other communities, you have lot of options when it comes to homes styles, upgrades, and custom features. This is the best decision we've made.
- Mel (Resident/Homeowner)|September 30, 2014I have been a resident in Ford's Colony for almost ten years. As a retiree, I was seeking a community that not only offered me the types of amenities found in many 55+ communities, but an upscale type of living that would allow me to enjoy my privacy. Ford's Colony has provided that and more. I don't play golf, but there are three fantastic courses here. Not to mention a great clubhouse, gorgeous pools, tennis courts, tons of clubs in which to join (which I did and have made some very strong friendships along the way). I highly recommend Ford's Colony for those seeking a very special, gated, picturesque community that has spectacular homes of varying sizes and prices; a place to meet others if one chooses to; and a central location to all that is wonderful about Williamsburg!
- Susan L.(Resident/Homeowner)|September 29, 2014We built our dream home here in one of the gated neighborhoods and absolutely love it. There are plenty of options and we have always wanted to build a custom home exactly the way we wanted it. The process was very smooth and our home is perfect. The curb appeal is gorgeous with all the traditional designs and the mature landscaping is the finishing touch. We also bought the full golf membership to the club and get a lot of use out of it! The golf and tennis are both fantastic, wonderful restaurants too and then a great gym and pools to work off all the overindulgence's!
