Location Map of Stonehouse Community in Toano near Williamsburg, VA

Stonehouse was planned in 1999 as a community of about 4,400 homes to go along with more than 3.3 million square feet of commercial and office uses. Since then, 700 or so homes have been built at the site, off Route 30 near the New Kent County line.

The Stonehouse development is divided them into 12 tracts and 4 neighborhoods. Neighborhood 1 will have traditional-style single-family custom homes similar to those found in the original neighborhood. Neighborhood 2 will have higher density homes (townhomes and something called “narrow single family” which must be similar to “zero lot line”). Neighborhood 3 will have lower density “estate” homes. Neighborhood 4 extends to the York River. Some cliff areas will be river view condos. There will also be single family homes, open space recreational space, and a marina.
They are planning a community similar to a large community in Cary, North Carolina called Amberly. The Stonehouse project has a 15-20 year estimated completion timeframe.

A large parcel (170 acres) is being proposed as an education site for a new elementary school and middle school. Total residential units will be approximately 4400, and that makes it the largest community in our area.
This developer is NOT a builder. They will put the infrastructure together and then sell off the lots in phases to builders. Similar to what was done in Stonehouse Glen where they sold lots to Ryan Homes.
