New Town, Braemar Creek, Fairway Villas, Longhill Gate, The Mews, Villages At Powhatan, 55+ options include The Settlement at Powhatan Creek, Villas at Five Forks, Colonial Heritage.
It all depends on what you want in a community, price range, etc.

Prices will start in the $170's and go to $350k,

Not interested in over 55 communities........price range from the $170,000's to about 230,000 or so. Would like the availability of a pool, other than that, we are pretty open.

Braemar Creek, White Hall,(pool in the works) Liberty Crossings Fairway Villas, Villages of Powhatan, Longhill Gate, Westgate ,The Mews , Seasons Trace, fit your parameters. The pool at Villages at Powhatan is a hike and across News Rd, The list is in age order, i.e. Braemar Creek is the newest built from 2006- 2011, The Mews is the oldest , built in the late 1980's
HOA fees run from $95-$180 monthly.

Kingsmill is another option, townhomes there are older, late 1970's, HOA fees can be $300+ monthly. It is a beautiful community though with walking trails, pools, river access, restaurants, golf and more.

Did you want a first floor master bedroom ?

First Floor master eliminates Seasons Trace and very few in Kingsmill at that price range. All the others offer them,

If we choose a complex without a swimming pool, does Williamsburg have any community pools?

Yes, Indoor pools at the JCC Rec Centers on Longhill Rd, and the YMCA near the hospital, Outdoor pools at Chickahominy Park, Upper County Park and Quarterpath Park, Williamsburg Community Pool. A few of the older neighborhoods encourage outside residents to join as well. These include Windsor Forest, Kingswood, Queens Lake and First Colony.

I have seen a few condos in Barclay Square......I know that area. Is it a safe place or are we better off not looking at that complex at all?
