Finding Homes and Property in Williamsburg Neighbor- Toano

Just north of Williamsburg lies property within the quiet town of Toano. Buyers can find lovely homes here in this quaint area of Virginia that is sometimes overlooked. Located in James City County, Toano provides a home base that is off the beaten path, yet provides quick access to all that Hampton Roads has to offer. Military bases like Camp Peary, Naval Weapons Station Yorktown and Coast Guard Training Center Yorktown are not far for service members who need to commute. Nature is abundant in this region and for the most part, remains unchanged since Colonial times.

The sleepy town of Toano is right off Interstate-64, near America’s Historic Triangle. This little burg is often overshadowed by Williamsburg, but it offers a simpler pace of life. A buyer can choose a nice-sized piece of property and get back to the basics. Or homebuyers can look at homes in subdivisions with all the bells and whistles, minus the city noise. York River State Park and several golf courses are nearby for those who like outdoor pursuits. The seasonal climate provides a different look every couple of months, supplying ample photo opportunities all around. Shopping, cultural events, entertainment and historical sites are just minutes away in Williamsburg.

When looking for a house in Toano, a good idea is to decide if a mature or new neighborhood is desired. This area has plenty of established subdivisions with nice homes available. These areas are desired for their lush landscaping and huge trees that aren’t always found in newer developments. Houses here may have many improvements and neighbors can be quite welcoming too. Some examples of neighborhoods where buyers can look for such types of property include Meadow Lake, Merry Oaks, Hunters Creek, Lisburn, Kings Village, Toano Woods, Temple Hall Estate, Lake Toano Estate, Racefield and Burnham Woods.
