Governor’s Pointe, a land grant made in 1700 by King William, offered rich land, deep rivers and an environment where families could flourish in early Virginia. By the end of 1865, the plantation system was replaced by family farms. In 2003 one of these farms was developed as a community of 141 custom-build fine homes where the property’s mature hardwoods, lakes, marsh areas and river views have been conscientiously maintained. This walking tour showcases a variety of charming outdoor living spaces.
