Developed in the mid-1960s as a residential community by the Savage and Cocke families, the original neighborhood consisted of 24 lots ranging in size from three-quarter to one-and-three- quarter acres. The location off of South Henry Street just past the W&M Law School gives residents proximity to the College of William and Mary, Colonial Williamsburg , Three Golf Courses, indoor tennis plus the shopping and dining of nearby Merchants Square in Colonial Williamsburg. Most of the homes are sited in a wooded landscape. Many original homeowners still reside in the houses they built nearly 40 years ago. A testament to the communities desirability.
Most of the homes in The Coves are masterpieces, custom designed and meticulously maintained by the owners. Sales are rare in this coveted neighborhood.
As of Feb 2010 there were two homes for sale in The Coves ranging from the mid $400’s to almost a million. Only one home sold last year in The Coves for the low $400’s.
