Where We Live: Georgian with no stone left unturned in Kingsmill

At first glance, you may think the Georgian at 24 Whittaker’s Mill in Kingsmill was the work of an HGTV design star. But the spacious, 4-bedroom, 3-and-a-half bath home was a labor of love for long-time Williamsburg resident Kevin Jones and his family.

“We really liked Kingsmill and when we first saw the house, we liked that the home had Southern bones,” Kevin said. “We walked in and immediately knew we wanted it. It was in great condition, just very tired.”

Since it was one of the biggest lots around, and with the opportunity to do a renovation, they were sold.

The family had a clear picture of what they wanted the house to look like design-wise.

“My wife has been the one who has always done that kind of stuff in our previous homes, and she did the same in this house,” Kevin said.

They finished off three large unfinished spaces in the house, which gave every room extra living space.

“For a family of five, everybody had more than enough space,” Kevin said.

They raised all the doorways in the downstairs, so the home felt more open and airy. They created a large closet in the first-floor master, gutted the kitchen, upgraded the HVAC, installed all new lighting and had heart pine floors shipped in from Florida, among many other improvements.

The outdoors got the royal treatment as well. A patio out back has a custom-made cast iron firepit built in under a removable granite coffee table top. In the summers when the fire pit isn’t needed, the table top serves a good spot for drinks or games.

About mrwilliamsburg

I love Williamsburg !
Being “Mr. Williamsburg” and starting my web site in 2004 has been a great way for me to help people looking for homes for sale, communities and an “insider knowledge.” of the area.
Turned out I was onto something. Because I offer in-depth information and up-to-the-minute blogging, even international clients have found me. One couple, moving back to the States from France, told me that a post I wrote blog about grocery shopping in Williamsburg convinced them that Williamsburg was the place to be, and that I was the best source by far that they found on the web.
I’m happy to say that I hear similar comments from many of my clients looking for homes throughout Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.
I grew up in Virginia Beach, Va, After attending college, I worked at a number of positions including manager of a land development and construction company and business manager of a cut flower business that we grew in sales from $300,000 to $15 million (we were supplier to Whole Foods and one of the first cut flower suppliers to Costco).
In 2004, it seemed like a good time to simplify my life. I moved my family from Annapolis to Williamsburg. I went into real estate with Liz Moore and Associates, and was one of the initial agents when Liz opened her Williamsburg branch.
My sons Zach and Josh attend Lafayette High School and Hornsby Middle School and are crazy about sports and the outdoors.
I feel lucky to be living the dream, and saving two to four hours by not driving on the DC beltway every day. So, I can now spend my time with family while concentrating on learning — and sharing — information about living in Williamsburg.
In real estate, no two people or transactions are the same. Everything’s a challenge, and I’m rewarded every time in close a transaction and have the opportunity to see the smiles on clients’ faces.
