The Riverfront Preserve
The Riverfront Preserve is an exceptional 395± acre opportunity on the Virginia Peninsula. The property has a coveted end-of-the-road location and sits at the confluence of Ware Creek and the York River. Privacy is further enhanced by the immediate neighbors, including the 2,600-acre Ware Creek Wildlife Management Area to the north, and the 2,300-acre Stonehouse Preserve to the west, which is under conservation easement. York River State Park, an additional 2,950 acres of public land, is just down the road. At the center of the property is a high, level bluff that rises nearly 100 feet above the York River. It has several elevated homesites that are ideally situated to capture summer breezes and expansive views of the York River. The potential of the Preserve is readily apparent, and with its recreational opportunities, extensive water frontage, and convenient location, it seems destined to become a classic Virginia “River House” or family retreat. Historic Williamsburg is only fifteen minutes away, and both Richmond and Virginia Beach can be reached in under an hour. It is the type of place that can be easily accessed and enjoyed on a regular basis, an increasingly important attribute in today’s world.
