GATED RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY AND GOLF RESORT
Formed in 1985 under developer control, it is now self-governed through a seven-person elected Homeowners Association Board of Directors assisted by over 200 Ford's Colony resident volunteers serving on 13 standing committees and associated support services committees.
Ford's Colony consists of 3,200 acres with 2,665 single-family homes, 80 townhouses, 24 condo units, 44 homes under construction, and 27 new build applications as of January 2024.
List prices currently range from the mid-$400,000's for Ford's Colony townhomes to between $600,000 and $1.5 million for a single-family residence.
Ford's Colony residents are highly engaged civic volunteers, participating in a wide range of organizations benefiting James City County and the greater Williamsburg area. The following list provides some of the
volunteer opportunities in which Ford's Colony residents participate:
Ford's Colony is the recipient of numerous national, state, and local conservation awards for preserving the natural beauty, environment, and resources throughout its gated community.
Located within the Powhatan Creek Watershed, Ford's Colony has 46 retention ponds to assist with storm water management. The HOA maintains 13 ponds as a common area, with ClubCorp-owned Ford's Colony Country Club maintaining the remainder. These retention ponds are also considered best practices in water conservation since they capture excess rainwater that is then used instead of public water to maintain Ford's Colony Homeowners Association common area landscape and the Country Club's three golf courses.
