Where Should you Retire? Why Move to Williamsburg?

Leave a comment

We love living and working in Williamsburg and know many good reasons why Williamsburg is a great place to retire.  But, we decided to ask our clients to share what they love about living in the Williamsburg area.  Here are just a few of them:
Why does Barbara love Love LOVE the house that Rolf Kramer helped her find, at Colonial Heritage?

Barbara is thrilled the day of move into Colonial Heritage. Here, she shakes Rolf Kramer’s, while Kevin Cere, Lennar’s construction manager, celebrates, too!

  • “Williamsburg has a mild, four season climate.”
  •  “The birding here is phenomenal.  We see great white herons, blue herons, ospreys, eagles, King Fisher and everything else imaginable.”
  • “We found new relationships with people that share our interests, and have discovered many ways to contribute to the community.”
  • “History, culture, green space, and access to health care and airports.”
  • “A constellation of attractions including the Colonial Williamsburg living history museum, the College of William & Mary, award-winning golf courses, a handful of prestigious gated-communities, close access to tidal rivers and the ocean, and a location only two and one half hours away from Washington, D.C.”
  •  “There are three airports and seven hospitals within an hour’s drive.  You can golf almost year round at on of 15 courses.”
  •  “Less than three hours to the Blue Ridge Mountains.”
  •  “As boat owners, we liked the town’s proximity to the sport-fishing waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, the James, Chickahominy, and York Rivers.”
  • “Residents age 60 and older can audit three courses a semester free of charge at the College of William & Mary.”
  • “Vibrant local cultural scene, including three major art museums, libraries, theater, concerts, films, and academic symposia on almost a nightly basis.”
  • “The peaceful beauty of the Colonial National Parkway has been another unexpected pleasure.  This 23-mile roadway connecting the so-called “Historic Triangle” of Yorktown, Williamsburg, and Jamestown offers frequent glimpses of osprey, bald eagles, and great blue herons.”
  •  “Colonial Williamsburg alone has 1,000 volunteers, mostly retired, serving as museum guides, gardeners, archaeological researchers, and in a myriad of other ways.”
  •  “Virginia Beach is just over an hour away and it’s less than three hours to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.”
  •  “This place is alive–you don’t come here to vegetate,” she adds, “It’s like a perpetual vacation.”
 Come Live the Good Life!
