Attractive 55+ Community of West Neck Villages in Southeastern Virginia Surrounds a Golf Course and Has Single Family Homes and Condos Clustered in Villages
The first 55+ community built in the Virginia Beach area of southeastern Virginia, West Neck Villages consists of eight separate villages and was built from the early-2000s to 2014. The villages surround the lakes and greens of Signature at West Neck, an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Arnold Palmer.
Six of the West Neck Villages are dedicated to 528 single family homes. These feature no less than two bedrooms and two baths with 1,640 to 2,539 square feet. Most have a two-car garage and a first-floor master suite. The other two villages have 408 condominiums. These range in size from 1,535 to more than 1,900 square feet. Some units have an attached garage and a private balcony. Exteriors feature red brick, vinyl siding and a pitched roof.
Prices begin in the mid-$200,000s. Please verify this price with a Realtor as it is bound to change.
Residents of the Villages may purchase a membership at the Signature and enjoy access to the course, a handsome 24,000 square foot clubhouse, a pro shop, plus fine and casual dining. The community's Village Hall has a fitness room, a game room, a library, an event room, and a catering kitchen. Outside the hall, there is an outdoor pool and a fire pit.
Chartered groups include a garden club, an educators club, and an investment club. Backyard Bird Watchers, art, yoga, wine tasting, Dyna-band exercise, water aerobics, and outdoor concerts are a few of the community's other activities and classes.
The Villages are minutes away from groceries, medical facilities, banks, and Virginia Beach's oceanfront boardwalk. The city's aquarium has sharks, sting rays, and sea turtles. Its art museum hosts rotating exhibits of contemporary art. Virginia Beach manages 210 city parks. The nearby First Landing State Park is 2,888 acres of swimming, hiking, and fishing.

Why are HOA Fees So High in 55+ Communities?
HOA fees (homeowner association fees) come in a wide range, and each 55+ community has a different set of guidelines for determining its HOA fees. Generally, the more amenities, the higher the fee. And often older communities have higher fees because as a development ages, maintenance costs increase. Most communities have bylaws stating how high HOA fees can be raised each year. When looking for a 55+ community, always ask about the fees. How much are they? What do they cover? How many increases have there been in the last 10 years? If the developer or sales staff will not tell you, visit on a Saturday when people are out and about and ask a resident or two about the HOA fees.
