Overview

About the property

The River House Is Designed To Provide Interesting Views Of The James River

The Claremont River House is a peaceful getaway located on a high peninsula overlooking the James River. The location itself has a deep history, from before the time of the earliest European settlers, but the house itself was built about 10 years ago as a creativity retreat.

Each of the four levels of the house has rooms with balconies facing the water and views ranging far up and down the lovely James River. The bottom floor is a walk-out basement with a bedroom housing a queen bed, a two headed stone tile shower, a separate WC and a large communal sitting area. The main floor has a large Great Room and the communal kitchen as well as access on three sides to the wrap around porch. Two bedrooms are located on the second floor; the master with the king sized bed and gracious bath, featuring a Kohler slipper tub, opens onto a private balcony overlooking the river. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and a private bath and offers a view of the grounds. The uppermost floor houses a cozy room with a private bath and a charming, bird's eye perch over the river. The four-acre grounds provide seclusion along with easy access to the river side community.

Much of the woodwork in the home was made by Mack Headley, a former master craftsman in Colonial Williamsburg. Some of it, such as the herringbone patterned floor in the Great Room and staircase, was made by him from local walnut.

Enjoy disconnecting! There are no tvs and no computers here.

Why Anna Hansen chose Claremont

There was something very special about the land this home is built on that everyone in the family recognized from the beginning. We wanted to create a space where people could feel connected and creative.

What makes this villa unique

The house was built by creative types over the course of a couple of years. It has eccentricities along with many beautiful details, and has been the object of much effort and love.

Awesome and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The River House. It was very comfortable and spacious. Anna even had food in the fridge for us to get us started when we arrived! It is in a remote area but that is part of the charm and peacefulness. This is a beautiful house!! I'd visit again in a heartbeat!
