HOMES AND LAND IN HISTORIC WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA
EXCEPTIONAL WATERFRONT HOME IN WILLIAMSBURG
AN ARCHITECTTURAL JEWEL DESIGNED TO EMULATE A FRENCH VILLAGE
* LOCATED HIGH ON A HILL OVERLOOKING COLLEGE CREEK *
Elegance, privacy, location, and
comfort all come to mind
when describing this one of a kind waterfront property.
Masterfully designed and
brilliantly executed by Mark Kohler, AIA and Van Kniest Builders,
this exquisite home
evokes images of a French country village. The architect designed this house as a series of four cottages connected by
windowed galleries, so that every cottage and gallery overlooks College Creek, a navigable tributary of the James River.
The Main Cottage of this 4794
square-foot home features a large bright great room with an
fireplace, a wood paneled vaulted ceiling, and a massive wrought iron chandelier custom built by Colonial Williamsburg
craftsmen. Substantial windows and doorways open on College Creek and provide warm natural light.
The stone fireplace features a
mantel made from an antique heart-pine beam, which matches
the heart-pine floors salvaged from 19th century buildings and milled by E.T. Moore of Richmond, Virginia
Built-in bookcases with cabinet
doors contain television and stereo components.
Main Cottage stairs lead to a private bedroom suite with full bath.
The great room shares the Main
Cottage with a striking oversized dining room, displaying
moldings, a second fireplace, and water views at the confluence of Halfway Creek and College Creek.
The Kitchen Cottage has an open
plan with stone counters, custom cabinets, a generous casual
and a den with a third fireplace, all opening onto a screened-in porch with creek views and waterfront breeze.
Every fireplace in this French
Country Home was built to burn wood, with fully functioning
dampers, flues, and terra cotta chimney caps. They have all been converted to natural gas for convenience.
Generous screened-in porch for al fresco dining and creekside relaxation.
Doors from the Main &
Kitchen Cottages lead to the creek path, where power and water
have been run
to a boat dock with a motorized boat-lift providing excellent marine access to College Creek and the nearby James River.
The dock features a motorized boat lift for easy storage and boat launching.

The Master Cottage provides a first floor master bedroom with a fourth fireplace, a large master bath, and multiple walk-in closets.
Well sized Master Bath with Jetted Tub Overlooks College Creek
This gallery hallway in the Master Cottage leads upstairs to a bedroom or office with creek views and a full bath.
Three cottages have a bedroom and full bath on the second floor, for a total of four bedrooms, four full baths and one half bath.
The Garage Cottage houses a 3
car garage while the second floor provides
a bonus room plus a substantial walk-in storage and attic area.
This French Country Home is
masterfully sited on 7.87 wooded acres fronting on College Creek
adjacent to the Williamsburg Winery, part of the Conservancy at Jockey's Neck, a private neighborhood
surrounded by vineyards with buffer zones controlled by the Historic Virginia Land Conservancy.
