Kingsmill Community

WELCOME TO HARROP'S GLEN

The name Harrop's Glen is described in a very interesting booklet, "Who's Who," by Bill Brown, which traced the street and subdivision names in Kingsmill:  "The Southwest corner of Kingsmill, including today's Fairfax Woods, was called Harrop's Plantation for most of the 17th Century until Lewis Burwell's III renamed it Kingsmill Plantation in 1736 to honor its initial owner and his early ancestor. It consisted of the earlier Winster Fax and was given the name Harrop by Dr. John Pott who acquired the 320 acre parcel in the late 1630's. Pott was a Member of the Governor's Council and served briefly as acting Governor. His home was located near our 17th fairway on the river Course. He was a jovial fellow and described by a friend as one who, "kept company too much with inferiors who hung upon him while his good liquor lasted." In 1645, the Episcopal Church used the name Harrop for its new ecclesiastical parish which included Kingsmill. In 1674 Harrop's Parrish was merged into the new Bruton Parish."


Harrop's Glen is a Town Home community strategically situated along the picturesque 5th and 6th holes of the noted Pete Dye designed Kingsmill River Golf Course. The community is comprised of only 31 residences, making it the smallest of the Kingsmill parcels. In addition to its contemporary architectural design, the community features an attractive park like center island area comprised of native Pine, Holly, and Dogwood trees surrounded by a common driveway having single entry/egress off of Wareham's Pond Road.

The community was developed in two distinct phases. Phase I, built in 1981/1982, contained 12 units whose exterior design represented, at the time, a radical departure from the more colonial style dwellings common to the Kingsmill and Williamsburg area. The firm chosen for the project by then developer, Wareham's Pond Associates, was Carlton S. Abbot a prominent local architect. Phase II, completed approximately 10 years later, was the creation of Busch Properties and designed by Magoon & Associates, another local firm. Phase II consists of 19 units and follows in harmony with the Phase I architectural design.
