The Settlement at Powhatan Creek


When you move into The Settlement at Powhatan Creek, you can sell your lawn mower, rake and outside ladder because you’re finished with most home maintenance chores. Instead, you’ll have time for year round swimming, water aerobics, working out, playing tennis, biking, walking and socializing – just steps from your front door.

The Settlement at Powhatan Creek is one of three 55 or better communities in the Williamsburg James City County area of Virginia along with Colonial Heritage and The Villas at Five Forks. The community is set on 225 wooded acres, once complete it will contain 400 homes once finished.

The mix is about 20 percent attached homes and 80 percent detached. The essence of Williamsburg’s charm is captured in The Settlement at Powhatan Creek, where more than 70 percent of land in the community is forever dedicated as protected woodlands and can not be developed. Plus, many of the homes sites in The Settlement are located on lots backing to pristine preserved areas.

When you’re ready to relax, there’s a clubroom with a billiard table, comfy chairs, a fireplace and, of course, a large screen television, indoor and outdoor pools.  Other attractive community features are a 10- to 12-person spa, a fountain in the outdoor pool for added beauty, a ballroom for special events, smaller meeting rooms for crafts and other activities, a fishing pond, and a security gate.

Like to walk, run or bike?  You’ll appreciate using the sidewalks along the tree-lined streets. In the future, James City County will be constructing a multi-use trail from The Settlement that will connect to the Capital Trail that will eventually link Williamsburg and Richmond.
