The Vineyards at Jockey’s Neck is set within view of the James River in James City County Virginia and just 4 miles from the restored area of Colonial Williamsburg. The community was conceived in 1989. Homesites for just 99 homes were planned on 224 acres of tranquil land adjacent to the acclaimed Williamsburg Winery .A quiet residential setting located just outside of Colonial Williamsburg and near both historic Jamestown and Yorktown. This Wooded community is situated adjacent to the vineyards of the Williamsburg Winery . The Vineyards has its own upscale clubhouse, tennis courts, swimming pool , playground, walking trails, and two picturesque lakes.
Home construction started in the Vineyards in 1991 and continues through today. There are still a few choice lots left to build your own custom dream home. The majority of the homes in the Vineyards were built by local builder Ron Staples (R.A. Staples Contracting), one of Williamsburg’s premier builders. I would be happy to introduce you if you want to build a custom home in the Vineyards.
Larger homes are the rule with the smallest being 2800 sq. feet and the average being 4300 square feet. Lot sizes range from .40 acre up to 3 acres with the majority having larger wooded private lots. Home owners fees are $425 quarterly and cover all common area maintenance, use of the pool, clubhouse, tennis courts, playground and lake.
Duffeler Nature Trail
The natural setting of the Vineyards community doesn’t end with acres of pastoral grape orchards – our proximity to College Creek affords a connection with nature few neighborhoods in the area offer. For the fitness enthusiast the Duffeler Nature Trail offers 5,300 steps over 2.55 miles which in 48 minutes can burn 425 calories in a breath-taking setting. For those who seek the simpler beauty of nature sightings of Deer, Turkey, Barred Owls, Eagles, Osprey and Herons among majestic stands of Pine and mature hardwoods there is little disappointment. Access to the Duffeler Nature Trail has been opened off of Jockey’s Neck Trail just to the left of 2674 Jockey’s Neck Trail. The trail has been cut through the natural terrain which boarders College Creek and offers many views of the Creek which show off its natural, unspoiled beauty.
