Resident of Colonial Place since 1990. I am a transplant from California thanks to the Navy needs.

Our house was a full renovation, thanks to the bones of the house life is good. Friendly neighborhood overall. I'm happy calling this place home sweet home. Definitely a great investment for our family.

The only crime is the use our personal property tax.

I would recommend Colonial Place to a new family in Norfolk. It is a safe place and is zoned for good schools. The people in the neighborhood are very kind and friendly. There is a playground and a dog park which is perfect for families.
I've lived in Colonial Place since 1994. It's a beautiful old neighborhood surrounded by water. Occasionally, there is high flooding, but there seems to be work on the current seawall at the riverfront.
