As a Historic, Waterfront and Equestrian Property Agent, it is a rare opportunity to represent Sellers of adjoining Estates and bring both Properties to the successful completion as SOLD properties.   I feel a great sense of accomplishment and at the same time I realize that it is the end of an era of ownership and stewardship that has passed to new owners who have and will each take their properties to the next level and live beautiful lives there! It was my honor to play a part in bringing these transactions to a close.

This very handsome  Riverfront Home is sited on 5 acres overlooking the Piankatank River and adjoins World Class Carousel, which I sold last year, representing both the Seller and Purchaser.  For more information and stunning photography of both properties in their pre-purchased state, please visit the link at the bottom of this post.

Little Plymouth was built, before the American Revolution by a New Englander with the last name of Williams, hence the name Little Plymouth. He built his new Virginia home on on land purchased from the estate of John Robinson, who was a former Delegate and Speaker Of The Virginia House Of Burgesses from 1738-1766.

Williams, is the first known owner and builder of the actual house itself.  It is sited off of The Trail (Rt. 14) in a manner typical of a rural house in New England.   Williams built a store next to the house which he operated for more than forty years.   In 1820, he sold Little Plymouth and returned to New England, leaving his legacy to remain at Little Plymouth.  The historic record and ownership is detailed in the following pages, which are located within this post.  They will give you many details and shed much light on this lovely New England Colonial in the heart of King and Queen County, Virginia.

The current owner has updated the home for modern conveniences.

There are no Historic or Conservation Easements on this property which allows You, The Purchaser, the ultimate flexibility and ability to improve the property without any encumbrances. Little Plymouth is ideally suited for use as a Horse Farm or Rural  Retreat. . . The Historic Home Of Your Dreams is within Reach, and awaits at Little Plymouth!

Little Plymouth possesses a low brick foundation, great end chimneys, a dutch roof and is typical  of larger frame houses built during the this period.  Five dormered windows across the front of the house have four over four pane sashes.  The four over four windows below, feature six over six windows.  Much of the original glass remains.

A wide center hall has original moldings including chair rail, cross and bible doors and a charming corner staircase.  All of the mantels are original with the first floor fireplaces having paneled chimney breasts above the fireplace mantels.

This is a gracious and comfortable home features  original floors, doors and moldings throughout with the current owners updated finishes that beautifully compliment the house, which is move in ready.
