Founders Pointe- Minutes Away, World’s Apart

 View from the Observation Pier in Founders Pointe

Close, Quiet, a Million Abstract Miles Away

Escaping the city for a more peaceful setting on the outskirts of commotion may sound like a fantasy. But the dreamers who’ve done it are basking in the reality that a relaxed lifestyle amid well-preserved natural settings and resort-style amenities doesn’t require a road trip or vacation time. Nor would it necessarily stretch the daily commute. In fact Founders Pointe residents cherish their central, yet more “private,” location, tucked off Route 17 and Sugar Hill Rd. in eastern Isle of Wight County. They remain within close proximity to major highways, bridges, waterways and business, military and entertainment destinations. Many say it’s an “easy” commute to anywhere within Hampton Roads, as Founders Pointe sits conveniently:

  • Only three miles from the James River Bridge
  • Nine miles from Interstate 664 and the Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel 
  • Ten minutes from Newport News and the Peninsula.
  • Ten minutes from historic Smithfield.

  • About 10 minutes from Harbour View, northern Suffolk’s bustling new downtown, with some of the area’s best shopping, dining, entertainment, professional space and more.

  • Fifteen minutes from Chesapeake’s Western Branch. Only 19 miles to Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, 25 minutes to downtown Norfolk and 38 miles to the Virginia Beach oceanfront.

Residents find it’s worth the extra ten minute drive home a day to come home to the waterfront location, all the fun and recreation at the Residents’Club, and the unique quality of the custom homes. The sense of community is evident as you drive through this award winnng community and walk out on the 844′ Community Pier which overlooks Batten Bay, the James River, and the Hampton Roads. Just beware, one visit to Founders Pointe, and you might just want to drop anchor here for good.
