Ford's Colony is a beautiful gated and golf community that is centrally located in Williamsburg. The neighborhood is situated along winding roads that weave in and around three 18-hole championship golf courses all designed by Dan Maples. Ford's Colony is known for its rolling topography and abundance of trees, ponds and wetlands in the 3,000-acre area.

This ensures that there is no ‘clear cutting’ and the natural beauty of the neighborhood is sustained.
