Hmmm, that dockside community in Gloucester sounds intriguing. Is it realistic to live in Gloucester and come over to Williamsburg 2-3 times a week (or maybe more). How long would the drive be?

Great, I'll definitely check them out. I take it the over place on Gloucester hasn't been built yet? Also, the place on College Creek--is that the place called Williamsburg Landing? And if so, how much would the townhomes there run (the smaller ones, if you happen to have a list, I think they're called the Allegheny. I couldn't find pricing on their web site, which makes me think it might be pricey).

Williamsburg landing is an assisted living facility. There are resales at times in river club in gloucester, none now. The builder who started it went out of business.

Gotcha. Looking back at the post now I see where I got confused.

By any chance do you have any idea who mostly lives in the Dockside Condos in Gloucester? Is that mostly Navy employees? Younger folks or retirees?

There is one resale in River Club in Gloucester currently, The community was started way back in 2006 as the market was tanking. They only built about 16 or so homes before going under. They did finish the pier, gazebo and clubhouse. At this time the remaining lots are for sale by the bank. So no telling what they will end up building in there..

Dockside is a mix. Mostly empty nesters, retirees and a few are second homes

Mr. Williamsburg, I just discovered your blogs about River Club and the Dockside community. Very cool. The funny thing is I'm actually considering looking into River Club. It's a little scary because you have to wonder how the small number of homes that got built will support those community structures (HOA fees may get crazy in years to come) but on the other hand it has its own beach. That's actually pretty cool. (Wonder if it's a natural beach or man made--if man made is it likely to disappear in a few years?)

Hmmm... that sounds like a nice mix. Quiet, but not abandoned during the winter season (which can often happen in some of the beach communities I like).
