The central location is perfect for those who want to enjoy the big city amenities in Richmond and Virginia Beach and the cultural and educational attractions of the Colonial Capital .

An exquisite tract of naturally preserved terrain, River’s Bend at Uncle’s Neck is a waterfront community privately nestled alongimage the Chickahominy River in James City County, Virginia. The site is conveniently located 15 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg and 45 minutes from downtown Richmond. Only 35 distinctive home sites have been carved from 350 total acres, ranging from 3 to 8 acres, on which to build your dream luxury home. All lots have high building sites well above the 100 year Flood Plain. .  19 lots are remaining in Uncle’s Neck, ranging from 3 to 8 acres, and including both riverfront lots on the Chickahominy and creek front lots on Uncle’s Neck and Oak Branch creeks.

River’s Bend at Uncle’s Neck is well suited to those who desire up-scale living in a private, natural setting. More than half of the 350 acre River’s Bend at Uncle’s Neck community is permanently preserved tidal marsh, woodlands, and managed wildlife areas. The majority of home sites offer access to navigable water on Uncle’s Neck Creek or the Chickahominy River, which offers trophy bass fishing.An unparalleled and limited opportunity, River’s Bend at Uncle’s Neck is the premier destination for those who desire completely natural, private, upscale living. Water views and access vary from tidal marshlands to deep river, and 200 acres of managed wildlife areas offer trails, meadows, and freedom to roam.


The developer , Uncle’s Neck, LLC, a partnership between Henry Stephens, Chris Phillips and Donald Hazelwood, has donated a 190+- acre conservation easement to the Williamsburg Land Conservancy as part of the development of the River’s Bend at Uncle’s Neck project.

The donation of the easement is the result of over three years of work, and showcases how preservation and progress can work together.

Way before the project became a reality, Donald Hazelwood sat down with the Conservancy’s executive director and some of the Conservancy’s Board members to discuss how the land could be developed, while at the same time protect the natural resources that were abundant on the almost 400-acre parcel. While the property could have been sub-divided into over 110 units, River’s Bend at Uncle’s Neck will be a development of 35 lots, mostly waterfront property.image

Key in the development of only 35 units was James City County’s waiver of the requirement for a central well system for the project. Allowing for individual wells (which does not create a greater draw on the aquifer) gave Uncle’s Neck LLC the financial ability to limit development and protect a major portion of the property. “This is a great project for us,” said Henry Stephens. “The land surrounding this community is some of the most beautiful and environmentally sensitive land in the county, and we are pleased to be working with a wildlife biologist to ensure for the safety and preservation of the flora and fauna on the site,” Stephens continued.
