A letter from Deelyn

Dear Ford’s Colony neighbor, 

I hope this letter finds you and your family safe and well. I have fielded many questions from my fellow Ford’s Colony residents regarding the effects of Covid-19 on our neighborhood’s real estate values. Let me share a few thoughts about that, in case you are wondering the same thing.

You might be surprised to learn that March actually was a record-setting month for Liz Moore and Associates – our 108 sales was a 60-percent increase from March 2019! At the onset of the pandemic, we were fortunate to pivot quickly and adapt safe practices so that almost all of our pending sales closed. April took an expected dip, but May rebounded well beyond our expectations – 95 sales overall, or 10 percent more than May 2019. June also is off to a great start.

That said, we have never seen the inventory of available homes in Ford’s Colony at such low levels. Sellers have been slow to put their homes on the market, but buyer demand remains very strong largely due to historically low interest rates. So if you are considering selling, NOW is the time to take action. Home values are rising in this hot market and show no sign of slowing.

If you are curious about your home’s current value, I can help.

I’d love to set aside 15 minutes to meet or talk with you to explore your specific situation, and to see whether taking advantage of this seller’s market makes sense for you at this time. There is no cost or obligation, of course. 

Please call (757-503-1999) or email me (deelyn@lizmoore.com) if I can be of service in any way. 

Thank you, and best regards!

Deelyn

Cheers to Williamsburg’s breweries

Locals know one of the great things about life in Williamsburg is the booming craft brewery scene, especially now that operations have been able to loosen up a bit in Virginia’s recovery. 

Collectively, they offer fun beer gardens, taprooms, awesome street-food, full-menu dining rooms, wines and craft cocktails, guest beers, music, trivia and, of course, dozens of their own year-round and seasonal creations sure to delight sippers to aficionados.

Here’s a brief rundown on our brewery biz. All have hung in during these tough times. Why not stop by one on this Williamsburg Wednesday, or any day at all, and sample from among the huge varities of beer – curbside pickup or on-site – that they are proud to provide to our community.

Please check the breweries’ respective websites (linked below) for operating hours and other pertinent information. 

Cheers!

What’s in an FC name: Seminole

Live sports-starved folks will receive a treat on their TVs this Sunday afternoon — a charity golf match between two-man teams of PGA Tour stars. World No. 1 golfer Rory McIlroy and former No. 1 Dustin Johnson will play popular stars Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff at the fabled — but very private — Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Fla.

Ford’s Colony’s cul-de-sac named Seminole, with about a half-dozen houses on the Firestone side of FC, is not quite as exclusive as its namesake (ha), and certainly not as ancient.

Seminole Golf Club dates to 1929, when famed golf architect Donald Ross set to work developing the 140-acre property. The picturesque course, which runs along the dunes of the Atlantic Ocean, quickly became home to a corporate and political Who’s Who, with members such as Henry Ford II, Joseph P. Kennedy, Robert Vanderbilt, Jack Chrysler, Paul Mellon and Phillip Armour.

Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy and Ford played at Seminole, and now so does quarterback Tom Brady; he joined when he signed with the Tampa Bay Bucs this NFL off-season.

One of the intrigues of Sunday’s match, aside from the return of pro sports of a fashion, is that Seminole has never been seen on television. Even non-golf fans might tune in for a bit to check out what pretty pictures the 91-year-old course affords.

Murdoch’s patio reopens

Murdoch’s bistro at Ford’s Colony Country Club will re-open its outside dining patio Friday, May 15, with a few expected conditions.

Capacity will initially be limited to 50 percent of normal occupancy, and tables — limited to no more than four patrons — will be situated six feet apart. Also, reservations will be required for service.

Lunch and dinner menus will be available. Additionally, Murdoch’s popular curbside pick-up remains available from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Based on current social distancing requirements, this video about Murdoch’s is, amazingly, a little dated. But still, it’s good and fun to have a chance to finally get out and enjoy some spring weather on Murdoch’s patio.

It’s easy to drop a line in FC

A walk around Ford’s Colony most days tells you dropping a line into one of the 13 ponds stocked and maintained by the Homeowners’ Association has become even more popular during these stay-at-home times.

But remember, there are rules — the HOA’s, as well as those of the Va. Dept. of Game and Inland Fisheries — that need to be followed for the benefit of the community. Among them: 

  1. Everyone over 16 must have a fishing license that can be purchased at sporting goods stores or online.
  2. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
  3. Only Virginia residents may get a license, except for active military stationed in Virginia and students boarding here.
  4. The HOA limits fishing to catch and release at all ponds. 
  5. Barbless hooks must be used, and only residents – or guests accompanied by a resident – may fish in a pond.
  6. Vehicles must be parked in the nearest cul-de-sac or side road, not on common grass area or leisure trails.
  7. Interior golf-course ponds are off-limits. FC Country Club courses are private property.
  8. And the HOA asks that you be a good neighbor by not fishing from a resident’s yard, unless invited, cleaning up around you and being kind to nearby wildlife.
