Kingsmill Community

WELCOME TO RIVER'S EDGE

River's Edge is situated between the James River and Wareham's Pond, providing water vistas from each residence, some views more panoramic than others. The houses are uniquely nestled in cul-de-sacs for easy access and privacy. Built in four phases beginning in 1996, there are presently 54 "front doors", some with attached roof mates and others free standing. A few additional lots are available on both pond and river. Three basic plans exist with ample square footage and openness surrounded by large windows.

Residents stand in awe daily with
ever shifting seasonal sunsets; the sky is a waterfall of colors cascading into the James River. The rainbow colors are spread wide or confined for moments in moving clouds.


In this serene location eagles nest and soar, swans visit, otters paddle, beavers gather and annoy, woodchucks climb and tease and deer romp and graze. Virginia's nature is alive and fascinating in rolling ravines edging the water.

A pool is conveniently located in the center of this attractive neighborhood and is available from May-September for lap swimming, treading water and children's shouts and laughter--most likely echoing visiting grandchildren.  Neighbors meet for poolside parties on summer evenings.

Residents of River's Edge represent several countries and many states and the neighborhood experiences little turnover. This tight community includes actively employed, retirees, singles, couples and a few who enjoy second homes in other locations.

In the early phases of building River's Edge, the newly formed Parcel Committee debated wrought iron gates, beige or brown awnings, hedge barriers, adding gutters and a host of issues. Presently, the
seven member Parcel Advisory Committee (PAC) meets monthly to hear reports concerning landscaping, roads and pool, irrigation, finance, and building maintenance. The PAC works diligently to keep budget expenses as low as possible while keeping River's Edge a beautiful place to live.

 

River's Edge residents are a social people! A monthly Happy Hour brings everyone together from 5-7 p.m., hosted by rotating households. These events do not require RSVP, just an appetizer to share and your beverage of choice. The PAC hosts Semi-annual and Annual PAC meetings for residents, as well as a holiday social.  The "Ladies on the Edge" meet once a month for lunch at a local restaurant.  And TLC volunteers look after neighbors who may, on occasion, need a helping hand.  River's Edge is a vibrant Parcel within Kingsmill who enjoy the good life with great neighbors!


 PARCEL ADVISORY COMMITTEE (PAC)

River's Edge is governed by a group of volunteer residents elected to the River's edge PAC.  The PAC serves as an advisor to the Kingsmill Community Services Association's (KCSA) Board of Directors on such matters as maintenance, painting cycles and landscaping.  Below are the names of the current PAC and their areas of responsibility.
