17 AC Homesite in Gated Woods- $1.4mil Suggested Opening Bid
In 1989, native Williamsburg singer/songwriter Bruce Hornsby purchased 33 acres on a waterfront point from The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation for $1.2 million. That sale raised funds for the Foundation, and the decision was made to sell the remaining woodlands between the point and the Foundation Golf Courses. In 1993, a subsidiary of The Foundation developed a gated residential enclave, nestled between Colonial Williamsburg, Route 199, and the Foundation Golf Courses. They named it South England Point, with 5 natural, wooded parcels, each between 12 and 19 acres. Williamsburg Developments, Inc., marketed the acreage as exclusive residential parcels.
The first wooded property to your left upon entering the South England Point gate is named “Deer Keep” and is being offered for sale by Sealed Bid Auction.
This special homesite is just 1.2 miles from the center of Colonial Williamsburg. The beauty, history and amenities of this thriving town is a mere bike ride or stroll away. Golf the Gold and Green Courses of the Golden Horseshoe Club. Visit the Spa or one of the many museums. Walk the restored town of Colonial Williamsburg and perhaps, take a summer course at the College of William and Mary. Family and friends will clamor to visit you in your new home.
The Deer Keep site has a “natural driveway” that you will see when you visit. All utilities, including underground electricity, public water, sewer, natural gas and cable are at the site. There is a wide variety of hardwoods on the property, plus a natural runoff creek, ravines and swales. A perfect building site is demarcated at the end of the drive, for your dream home.
Another property with historic heritage and comfortable seclusion such as this simply does not exist where you can enjoy the prestige of a wonderful address, the privacy of natural wood surroundings and gated security with this proximity to Colonial Williamsburg. Secluded and secure, imagine living surrounded by the very forests that welcomed America’s first settlers and sheltered the region’s native tribes! Enjoy a Williamsburg address with the benefits of a James City County location.
