Independence at Yorktown Crescent Neighborhood Spotlight

Independence at Yorktown Crescent is a new and exciting mixed-use development in the heart of York County VA at the intersection of Route 17 and Fort Eustis Boulevard.

Once complete, Independence at Yorktown Crescent will feature 210 residential units, at least 28,000 square feet of commercial space, and at least 3,000 square feet of indoor community space.

Independence at Yorktown Crescent was designed using Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) standards to create a vibrant, walkable community that will minimize the impacts on surrounding properties and be a benefit to the County and its residents. Streets are a traditional grid pattern with internal connectivity and access to adjacent properties.

Several different for-sale house types will be offered including larger townhomes and duplexes with detached garages, smaller townhomes with attached garages, and residential condominiums. The builder will offer up to 8 different floor plans with prices from the mid $200′s to the $350′s. The live-aboves are for-sale units offering a unique housing choice by combining commercial space within an attached home. Larger townhomes with 2,000 to 2,400 square feet will feature alley-loaded detached garages. These homes will have the choice of a first floor or second floor master bedroom suite. They are designed to meet the needs of residents who are ready to downsize from a single family home to a low-maintenance home, with ample living and storage areas to meet their needs. In addition to a traditional configuration, the townhomes will be offered in smaller sizes toward the rear of the community providing a varied streetscape within the neighborhood. The smaller townhomes will be designed for younger residents that are looking for their first home and will be two and three-stories with one and one-half or two-car alley loaded garages. These will range from 1,700 square feet to 2,000 square feet of living area.


Independence at Yorktown Crescent will provide a variety of recreational experiences for the residents. A community center with a meeting room, fitness room, kitchenette and dining area, and restrooms will be provided. It will be centrally located adjacent to the commercial area to help provide a transition to the residential uses and to add to the activity and vitality in this area. Green spaces and water features will provide informal recreational opportunities within the community. There will be landscaped lawn areas for use for community cookouts, games, and other recreational uses. Walking trails in and around the area will allow residents to enjoy the natural beauty which exists on this property. A dog park will be located in an appropriate area of the development.

A large community shopping center is adjacent to the Yorktown Crescent community to provide easy access to groceries and other daily needs without getting into a car or going out to Route 17. The county library and the neighborhood community center will be within walking distance for all residents as well.

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.
