Kingspoint- Williamsburg VA Neighborhood Spotlight

kingspointentrance.jpegKingspoint is a quiet neighborhood nestled on College Creek and Halfway Creek in Williamsburg, Virginia. ( James City County) Homeowners who join as members enjoy a pool,  playground, new clubhouse and newly landscaped grounds, as well as tennis courts and a dock (both in need of repair, but they’re working on it!)  Conveniently located  right off the Colonial National Historic Parkway and Rt 199 only a stones throw from Colonial Williamsburg and William & Mary.

Kingspoint is known for a friendly non-mandatory association with great amenities. Many home owners have stayed in the neighborhood, moving as the needs of their life have changed…upsizing, downsizing…water, no water, etc.

Boat ramp in Kingspoint
The private pier & boat launch are great community assets. When combined with the clubhouse, homeowners can experience all of the joys of waterfront living without the cost.There are also tennis courts and a large playground.

Lots in Kingspoint range in size from  that is over an acre . Set on 272 acres there are approximately 224 homes in the community. Home were built starting in 1965 – the late 1980’s. The majority were built in the late 60’s and 70’s. Home sizes range from 1600 square to 5000 square feet.

The clubhouse and deck  enjoy  spectacular views of College Creek. If you are into kayaking you can follow College Creek all the way to the James River.

Kingspoint Club, Inc. is owned and supported by its members who are residents of Kingspoint neighborhood. It’s a voluntary organization. About 70% of Kingspoint residents are club members.

Kingspoint Club manages the pool, tennis courts, dock, and recently renovated clubhouse. The Club is run by a volunteer board of about 7 or 8 neighbors which oversees everything from planning Halloween parties to managing club finances (and everything in between).

Waterview in Kingspoint
While membership in the club is reserved for Kingspoint homeowners, a limited number of non-resident memberships are extended to the Williamsburg community. The pool is quiet, and the setting peacefully nestled on the shores of college creek. The pool area features a large 25 meter pool with a diving well, a shaded baby pool, an adjacent playground, tennis courts (in need of restoration, as is our dock), and a brand new clubhouse.
