Make your plans now to visit 121 Swinley Forest, which will begin showings Thursday, May 12.
It is a beautifully landscaped, well-maintained and custom-built home with a great kitchen featuring a Wolf dual fuel range and two pantries, a bonus or bedroom five, hardwood floors and a family room with a masonry fireplace.
The upstairs primary bedroom features plantation shutters, two California closets and bathroom updates including marble counters and a tiled shower with a frameless glass enclosure.
Storage is plentiful here with an attached shed and pull-down attic.
Swim team is always a fantastic and fun opportunity for swimmers ages 5-18 of any ability to improve their swimming skills in all strokes, learn sportsmanship, enjoy community spirit and build team camaraderie.
Team practices are slated to begin at the end of May, with a six-meet competitive season that runs through July. The team competes in Division I of the Virginia Peninsula Swimming Union with teams from Williamsburg, Yorktown and Newport News.

At the end of March, there were only seven active listings in Ford’s Colony. Clearly, it remains a great time to sell your home if you are considering a move.
Ford’s Colony has announced the new entrance to the nature trail is now open off of Westbury Hills.
The old entrance near the pond was subject to flood damage and had to be permanently closed. The crosswalk from the leisure trail on Williamsburg West to Westbury Hills makes the new route, which is well-marked, more accessible.
It also is expected to reduce maintenance costs for the nature trail.
Just listed in Ford’s Colony is this spectacular, classic brick Georgian steeped in European sophistication and featuring golf and water views throughout its 4,645 square feet.
Designed by renowned local architect Roger Guernsey and custom-built by Anthony DeRose, 147 S Turnberry is a tribute to expert, quality craftsmanship.
The home features four bedrooms, all with en suite baths, and includes primary suites on the first and second floors. Additionally, there are two bonus or “flex” rooms, plus an unfinished walk-out basement.
Among the numerous highlights of this gorgeous home:
Dining room with extensive millwork and custom wood inlaid floor
Living room accented by French doors and a custom fireplace rimmed in marble
Premium kitchen appliances including an integrated SubZero refrigerator, Wolf gas cooktop and oven, and an Advantium microwave.

I very much appreciated all the Ford’s Colony neighbors who turned out for my annual seminar to discuss the Ford’s Colony real estate market on Thursday, Feb. 17.
What an outstanding afternoon! We had more than 60 interested folks attend to be updated on current market conditions, trends and statistics — and to ask some really interesting questions.
Bottom line, the supply of Ford’s Colony homes for sale remains tight. But, as my mentor Liz Moore suggested to the room, the hike in interest rates and potentially fewer Covid concerns from sellers — providing them the confidence to list their home — could soften the market by the fall.
That is a good reminder that, if you are in a position to sell your home, there truly has never been a better time to do so. Please get in touch if you’d like a no-obligation review of your home’s current value.
My review of the fourth quarter of 2021 shows that 37 homes in Ford’s Colony closed in that time — at an average sold-to-list price of 99.4 percent.

Average price per square foot was $175
Indicative of the ongoing market conditions, there were just six active listings as of Dec. 31.

As always, contact me if you’re interested in learning the market value of your home, and please consider attending my Market Watch seminar on Feb. 17 at the Ford’s Colony Country Club. If you can attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Feb. 14.

I’m very happy to have helped Mike and Barbara Murphy locate their next home — 116 Bay Hill here in Ford’s Colony. The Murphys will be arriving from Northern Virginia in a few weeks to reunite with some very close friends who live across the fairway from them. Isn’t that great? Welcome to the neighborhood, Mike and Barbara!
