Westport at Fords Colony breaks ground on first home..

Westport is the latest addition to Ford’s Colony, and is unlike anything in the Williamsburg area. Westport is the only neighborhood in Ford’s Colony offering estate sized home sites ranging from 3 to 5 acres. Nowhere else can you find this much privacy in a master-planned community the caliber of Ford’s Colony, and still enjoy convenient access to all of the attractions, shopping, and dining of Williamsburg, VA.

With Stonehill, either Gary or Greg personally handles each project. At least one of the owners of the company is on the project site every day and personally involved. They are available to speak or meet with their homebuyers anytime, including evenings and weekends. Stonehill’s goal is to build a relationship of trust and understanding with each buyer, making the process more comfortable and keeping communication open.

Every buyer is trying to build the best home for their family and their lifestyle; I use my experience and expertise to help make that process as easy for them as possible.” What makes Stonehill so special is the level of quality in both materials and craftsmanship offered at a value to their homebuyers. Gary has been in the construction industry for over 40 years and Greg has been in the industry for over 12 years; they’ve seen fads come and go and have seen the value and longevity of using quality materials. Stonehill believes in installing these fine materials by tried and true methods, all included in the price of their homes.

Gary has a reputation for careful inspection and excellence, qualities that are evident in every Stonehill home. Stonehill welcomes buyers to visit their home sites and inspect their quality and craftsmanship for themselves. Since one of the owner’s is on site daily, buyers’ questions are answered immediately and changes can be made quickly. Customization and changes are so welcome that Stonehill offers homebuyers access to an online design studio where they can manipulate a virtual floor plan of their home. For example, buyers can customize the basement or add an attached sunroom to the home; the possibilities are endless.

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.
