Ford's Colony 2Q "Market Watch" update

by Deelyn Robinson

Sales statistics compiled for my quarterly “Deelyn Market Watch” update show 63 homes (including townhomes and condos) have sold in Ford’s Colony through June 30.

The average sold price in Ford’s Colony through the second quarter of 2019 was $515,730, at 93.8 percent of original list price.

Those numbers represent increases of seven and two percent, respectively, over the first quarter.

Other key statistics through June 30:

  • Average months supply of inventory – 5.9

  • Average price per square foot -- $147

  • Average days on the market – 94

In all 40 homes closed in the second quarter – 10 in April and 15 each in May and June. 

I appreciated the kind words of clients Bill and Jody Coutros: “Deelyn made the logistical challenges of selling and buying manageable and found win/win situations that could work for all. If we are to move again, Deelyn will be our first choice in real estate agents.”

Reopened, renovated Stonehouse golf seeks former glory

by Deelyn Robinson

Stonehouse Golf Club in Toano has reopened and hopes to reclaim its past glory as one of the country’s finest public golf courses. 

Stonehouse opened in 1996 and immediately earned national awards from the golf industry, including “Best new upscale public course” by Golf Digest and “Top 10 new courses you can play,” by Golf Magazine, which a few years later listed Stonehouse among the best courses in Virginia. 


Innovative golf-course architect Mike Strantz created a breathtaking par-72 layout that incorporated its natural surroundings as much as possible. The course featured dramatic elevation changes and huge putting greens located on the edges of natural cliff formations. 

Hard times hit the golf economy a decade ago, however, and Stonehouse ultimately was forced to close in 2017. Enter J. Sanders Construction. The West Point company bought Stonehouse late last year with an eye toward restoring Stonehouse to all its beauty and fun. 

The course reopened to the public on July 4 after a dedicated effort to reclaim the clubhouse and course – including all tee boxes, fairways, bunkers and greens -- from overgrowth and dormancy. Among other necessary improvements made were repaired cart paths, new hole signs and markers, a rebuilt practice range and other course accessories.

J. Sanders Construction’s announced goal for Stonehouse is simple: “We want Stonehouse Golf Club to be the No. 1 choice for golf by providing an amazing golf experience on a beautiful course serviced by a professional and friendly staff.”

Why not book a round at Stonehouse and see for yourself what all the excitement is about!

Golf packages, tournaments and full memberships are available at the course’s website.




Here in Williamsburg, we live near one of the finest winery restaurants in the United States. Is it THE best? We’ll soon find out!

Café Provençal at Williamsburg Winery is among 20 similar venues nominated by USA Today as the nation’s best winery restaurant.

Readers, patrons and especially food and wine lovers may vote once a day for Cafe Provencal as their favorite over the next couple weeks.Voting in the contest — officially USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Travel Award — ends Monday, Aug. 12. The winners will be announced Friday, Aug. 23 — and then later on USA Today. The place to vote is here.

USA Today’s nomination reads: “Chef David McClure takes the helm at Café Provençal at Williamsburg Winery with a menu highlighting local farmers, watermen and “agri-artisans.” This farm-to-farm menu includes dishes like ham and pea soup made with Edwards Country Ham, butter-poached lobster tail salad, seared diver scallops with local purple rice and grilled swordfish with lemon basil polenta and a mustard cream sauce.”

Yum, to all of that!
