Arbordale Development moving forward in upper York County/ Williamsburg VA

Work is progressing on Arbordale, a new apartment and single-family residential development in the Lightfoot area of York County VA. Harvey Lindsay Commercial Real Estate in Norfolk announced the closing of the first of four sites in Arbordale, a new 83-acre residential development in York County.

Harvey Lindsay represented the landowner, Bulifants LP, in the $2.4 million sale of the 20.3-acre site approved for 288 apartment units to the master developer, Bulifants Residential LLC, controlled and managed by Peter V. Henderson.

Bulifants Residential LLC successfully rezoned Arbordale last year and has broken ground on the infrastructure needed for the apartments and single-family and townhome portions of the project. The developer subsequently sold the apartment site for $6.1 million to DE Arbordale LLC, an affiliate of Bonaventure Realty Group LLC.

Bonaventure’s most recent local apartment project is Aura at Quarterpath which offers luxury apartment living,  upscaled amenities and community features with modern finishes, a refreshing salt-water pool, exercise facilities or group fitness, pet-friendly grooming station & technology conveniences. Aura at Quarterpath is located in the new Quarterpath development adjacent to the new Riverside hospital.

Ryan homes will be unveiling their new Lifestyle” product line at Arbordale in May of 2018. All the homes will be ranch style floorplans universally designed to target downsizers and retirees. The site is currently under development and slated to open in May 2018. 122 lots, pool/clubhouse, located in Upper York off Mooretown Rd (Right near the Ferguson showroom)

This will be the first location for the new “Lifestyle” homes in the area. Prices are projected to start in the mid $250’s for a detached two bedroom ranch with two car garage. Active lifestyles will love the single-level, low-maintenance homes. Built for easier living, they offer beautiful open floor plans, easy upkeep, modern features and stylish finishes.

Homes will range in size from 1150-1700 sq feet.

The Aruba offers the right amount of space without the shared walls or high floors of apartment living. Just enough space for entertaining without having too much house to furnish. The kitchen opens to the great room creating a relaxed open area to gather with friends. Also included is a flexible room in this two bedroom, two bath design. If you like to cook and entertain, you’ll have an informal dining room right off the kitchen. If you’d rather have a private office or reading room, skip the dining room and give yourself a study.

About mrwilliamsburg

I love Williamsburg !
Being “Mr. Williamsburg” and starting my web site in 2004 has been a great way for me to help people looking for homes for sale, communities and an “insider knowledge.” of the area.
Turned out I was onto something. Because I offer in-depth information and up-to-the-minute blogging, even international clients have found me. One couple, moving back to the States from France, told me that a post I wrote blog about grocery shopping in Williamsburg convinced them that Williamsburg was the place to be, and that I was the best source by far that they found on the web.
I’m happy to say that I hear similar comments from many of my clients looking for homes throughout Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.
I grew up in Virginia Beach, Va, After attending college, I worked at a number of positions including manager of a land development and construction company and business manager of a cut flower business that we grew in sales from $300,000 to $15 million (we were supplier to Whole Foods and one of the first cut flower suppliers to Costco).
In 2004, it seemed like a good time to simplify my life. I moved my family from Annapolis to Williamsburg. I went into real estate with Liz Moore and Associates, and was one of the initial agents when Liz opened her Williamsburg branch.
My sons Zach and Josh attend Lafayette High School and Hornsby Middle School and are crazy about sports and the outdoors.
I feel lucky to be living the dream, and saving two to four hours by not driving on the DC beltway every day. So, I can now spend my time with family while concentrating on learning — and sharing — information about living in Williamsburg.
In real estate, no two people or transactions are the same. Everything’s a challenge, and I’m rewarded every time in close a transaction and have the opportunity to see the smiles on clients’ faces.
