James River Estate, Estate of the Day
You know a listing is posh when it has aerial shots. Today's estate is located in Governor's Land, a private residential community located at the confluence of the James and Chickahominy Rivers seven miles from Colonial Williamsburg. The community is designed for low population density with 60% o f the 1,482 total acreage preserved.This new home is surrounded by 10 acres of lawns, woodland paths and is on the banks of the James River. It even comes with its own private island. The home is a 19,000 square foot residence but with just five bedrooms there is room for a whole lot of other add-on rooms like a library, home theater room, or elevator. The home is a modern version of a grand Southern home, complete with a sweeping staircase entrance. Of course older homes don't have an indoor pool and spa area, an open kitchen or a bathroom in green stone and dark wood that resembles a library. This home is listed at $10.5 million.
