You’ve heard about the mild four-season weather and the scenic views overlooking the James River. You’ve heard about the Southern hospitality and the treasure-trove of historical sites. You’ve heard about the abundance of cultural and leisure activities and the excitement of Busch Gardens. And most of all, you’ve heard about the luxurious Williamsburg communities with homes for sale grand enough to fulfill your dream of living in paradise.
REALTORS® Tim Parker and Cyril Petrop of the Parker-Petrop Group are here to confirm that all the wonderful things you’ve heard about Williamsburg are true. And their goal as REALTORS® is to help you achieve your dream, whether you’re buying or selling your home.
Close to three airports and Interstate 64, Williamsburg is only two hours by car from Washington, DC and 45 minutes from Richmond. Its excellent location, ideal weather and sought-after lifestyle have made Williamsburg a recently discovered haven for new businesses and industry. This growth has brought new neighborhoods, hospitals, schools, professional people and all of the associated shopping, dining
and other amenities a growing population requires.
The Crown Jewel of the Commonwealth
The essence of Williamsburg VA homes is one of palatial grandeur—realty that ranges from Colonial and Federal tradition to French Country nouveau to Cape Cod antiquity. A wide variety of communities gives attention to the many details that must come together to compose elite architecture. But whatever the architectural style, Williamsburg homes are surrounded by the best of the elements—pristine lakes and rivers and stately woods. Sunrooms survey manicured lawns and flower gardens replicating coveted designer landscapes.
Even on days when it seems like you’re only home long enough to catch some sleep, you deserve to spend your time magnificently. And while every section of Williamsburg shines, three communities outshine all others with their luxurious lifestyles and custom neighborhoods.
Kingsmill on the James
Kingsmill on the James is a gated residential community covering nearly three thousand acres of rolling green hills dotted with lush fragrant forests. At its center is the Kingsmill Resort and Spa, which has something for everyone who enjoys the finer things. These include three championship greens named one of Golf Digest’s “75 Best Golf Resorts in North America,” a fabulous marina and 15 tennis courts including 6 Hydro Courts™—in short, paradise in your own backyard.
Kingsmill on the James offers both new and resale homes in a variety of neighborhood settings, each with its own lifestyle, landscape and features. Whatever your interests and stage of life, you’ll find neighborhoods with homes to suit, including patio homes, townhomes, resort condominiums and luxury villas.
Then there’s fantastic Ford’s Colony where stunning homes and condominiums are built around light and open space, giving you rich garden and greenway views. This gated community has received local and national acclaim for its conservation efforts and wildlife preserve. Its three challenging golf courses, country club and restaurant have been recognized by Golf Digest, Wine Spectator and the Virginia Gazette.
Governor's Land At Two Rivers
At the convergence of the Chickahominy and James Rivers, sumptuous waterfront and country club living awaits you at Governor’s Land. Amenities abound, including a prized private clubhouse with a fairway designed by Tom Fazio and a splendid yacht club and marina. Imagine a home that’s over five thousand square feet with a double kitchen, balcony off of the library, catwalk staircase and arbor. Your backyard leads to sanctuary trails where you walk through covered bridges and catch glimpses of marshland birds.
When you choose the lifestyle offered by Kingsmill on the James, Ford’s Colony or Governor’s Land At Two Rivers, no longer will you dream of paradise, because each day you awake to the reality that you and all of your neighbors already live there.
And that’s just the beginning...
Downtown Williamsburg — A National Treasure
While Kingsmill on the James, Ford’s Colony and Governor’s Land At Two Rivers are ultimate modern planned communities, they lie only a short drive from Williamsburg’s timeless Colonial neighborhood. Here, you’ll find over eighty-five buildings and Williamsburg Colonial homes dating back three centuries. American culture is well preserved in Downtown Williamsburg and is presented for your enrichment at a number of fine museums.
Balancing timelessness with innovation is the annual Grand Illumination, held the first Sunday in December. Only in a place as special as Downtown Williamsburg will you find holiday caroling with fireworks!
I have purchased three properties through Tim and Cyril. Two for residential purposes, and one investment property. I have been impressed with their knowledge of the market they serve, and the straightforward approach they take with clients. This last property was the most challenging, but the way the contract was structured both protected my interests, and ultimately saved us quite a bit of money. I can, without reservation, recommend this real estate team.Judy

Did you notice we didn't say Questions to Ask a Realtor? There's a reason for that, not ALL Real Estate Agents are Realtors, it's unusual if they're not, but "Realtor" is in fact a designation (and probably another post in itsel...
