Stonehouse Preserve
Stonehouse Preserve spans 2,712± acres on the banks of the York River and Ware Creek. The property lies just 15 minutes northwest of Williamsburg and within an hour of many of Virginia’s larger cities. The convenient location is balanced by the property’s privacy, which is further enhanced by its York River frontage and the surrounding public lands. The 2,600-acre Ware Creek Wildlife Management Area borders Stonehouse to the north, while the nearly 3,000-acre York River State Park is a stone’s throw from the property’s southern boundary. The land is a diverse mix of upland timber, deep ravines, numerous creeks, and expansive water frontage, which together form a dynamic property filled with potential. Currently, it is primarily managed for hunting and wildlife, although many additional recreational opportunities exist. The property has been deed restricted to protect Stonehouse’s environmental and scenic resources. Flexibility for future owners has also been preserved, and nineteen homes and associated improvements can be built, as well as 130,000 square feet of commercial space. As a result, Stonehouse Preserve can accommodate a range of future ownership scenarios, be it a family compound, best-in-class recreational retreat, or a small-scale, conservation-oriented community. Complementing Stonehouse’s flexibility are its extensive timber resources and overall acreage. Riverfront tracts of this size are rare on the Virginia Peninsula, and the property’s low carrying costs make it an excellent long-term, sustainable investment opportunity and 1031 candidate.
