Williamsburg, VA

2,712± Acres

Stonehouse Preserve spans 2,712± acres on the banks of the York River and Ware Creek. The property lies just 15 minutes northeast 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. There is a conservation easement on the property that was drafted with flexibility for future owners in mind. Nineteen homes and associated improvements are permitted, 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.
