Downsize in affordable luxury at Eaglescliffe condos

If you no longer require a large family home, are weary of house maintenance, or if you simply want to lock up and go when travel restrictions lift, downsizing to an Eaglescliffe condominium at Ford’s Colony is the perfect choice for your next chapter.

Condo living means freedom. Less time and money on home chores and more on favorite hobbies. Few worries, much fun – plus lower utility bills than with single-family home ownership and steadily increasing property values.

The condos at 1104 and 2301 Eaglescliffe offer attractive downsizing options that each include approximately 2,000 square feet, two or three bedrooms and at least two full baths. They feature full-time gated security, dedicated parking and storage space and an easily walkable location to Ford’s Colony Country Club’s three 18-hole golf courses, golf academy and practice ranges.

Click here for information on 1104 Eaglescliffe and here to take a Matterport 3D tour of this beautifully maintained, two-bedroom, two-bath, first-floor condo with 1,862 square feet of luxury living space.

2301 Eaglescliffe is a top-floor unit with TWO covered porches, an extra half-bath uncommon to most Eaglescliffe condos, plus a gorgeous gourmet kitchen. Take the Matterport tour of 2301 Eaglescliffe here.

Happy New Year to my FC neighbors

Happy 2021! I have so much hope for a fresh, healthy start from the most complicated and intense – and yes, scary — times most of us will ever know. I wish you all warmth and peace.

On to news highlights from the first Talk of the Colony (the Ford’s Colony HOA magazine) of the new year:

  • The HOA plans to spend roughly $2 million this year on a project to repair old pipes throughout Ford’s Colony.
  • A right turn lane onto Ford’s Colony Drive off of Longhill Rd. will be constructed.
  • Four of the seven seats on the HOA board of directors will be filled durig the election period that runs Jan. 4 through Feb. 5. Online ballots – one per household or lot owner – should arrive via email by Jan. 5. (Contact communityservices@fchoa.net if you don’t get one.) Voting instructions were mailed with the January assessment billing. Only electronic ballots will be used.
  • An impressive roster of candidates, with deep and diverse backgrounds, is running for the open slots – Ray Van Cott, Roy Madsen, Rick Beers, Daphne Kinkel and Robert J. Boggio. Their bios and introductory videos can be found on the “Election” page on the HOA website. Additionally, look for a virtual “Meet the Candidates” webcast to be recorded and posted at fchoa.org soon.
  • Entry gate arms continue to receive damage by motorists unaware of how to enter Ford’s Colony, including non-pass holders who try to gun their way through to beat the gate cycle. Don’t try it, advises security chief Crystal Bowers. It won’t work, and you’ll have to pay for the gate damage.

As always, remember that I post links to a year’s worth of Talk of the Colony editions here on their own page.

Best wishes!

Deelyn

That increase is part of the boom that real estate in Hampton Roads continues to experience, despite lower-than-usual inventory levels.

In September, the median price for a home in Hampton Roads rose by more than 10 percent over the previous year. The Pilot said that’s the largest year-over-year growth since the Real Estate Information Network (REIN) began tracking the statistic in 2006. 

In Williamsburg, the median sale price increased 40 percent from a year ago, to $349,900. Eleven homes were sold in the city in September, 10 percent more than last year.
