Links Living: The Enclave at Kingsmill

Tucked inside Kingsmill Resort, this exclusive new neighborhood offers resort-style living, three golf courses, and puts you within walking distance of historic Williamsburg, Va.

Back in 1607, when the first English sailing ships explored the James River, they nearly chose this land (before ending up at Jamestown) as the first English settlement in America. But the river was three feet too shallow near the shoreline. Instead, the picturesque riverfront setting is now home to the popular Kingsmill Resort and its three must-play championship courses.

Kingsmill’s famed River Course, designed by Pete Dye and ranked among Golf Digest’s Top 100 for 2021, has hosted a number of storied professional events over its history. In addition to offering tournament conditions throughout the year, the River Course delights with one of the best trios of finishing holes in golf. Rounding out the memorable golf experience are The Plantation Course, an Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay design, and The Woods Course, the work of Tom Clark and Curtis Strange.

Enclave at Kingsmill

While golfers know Kingsmill as one of the premier, year-round resorts on the East Coast, it’s also a lifestyle resort community—a place you can call home. On offer are many attractive living options, from townhomes to multi-million-dollar homes overlooking the river. One of the newest options is The Enclave at Kingsmill, an exclusive neighborhood just a five-minute walk from the Resort’s center.

A ready escape from the outside world, the Enclave’s light-filled two-story spaces live large with open-concept floor plans. Each home features three bedrooms and three and a half baths, including a first-floor owner’s suite. The low-maintenance, stress-free neighborhood (with its own police force) features 24 single-family attached homes set between holes 2 and 9 of the River Course, former home of the LPGA Pure Silk Championship.

With all the amenities of the resort so convenient, these homes make it easy to have friends and family visit. In addition to golf, the resort offers indoor and outdoor swimming pools, 15 tennis courts, kids’ camps, hiking and biking trails, a world-class spa, full-service marina with beach access, and so much more, all within easy reach of Northern Virginia, Richmond, and Virginia Beach. New York City is about a five-hour drive away.

The Kingsmill Lifestyle Discovery Package offers a complimentary one-night stay at the resort and one round of golf for two, along with a tour of homes. Get in touch with the Kingsmill Realty team at to help book your stay.
