Now, after a $3 million renovation – featuring beautiful interiors transformed with distinctive furnishings, lighting, textiles and décor from RH, Restoration Hardware – the Estate at Kingsmill is available as a luxury rental for vacationers, corporate retreats and to those celebrating a milestone or special occasion. “With inspiring design and the finest materials, we have created a premier living, gathering and entertaining space that modernizes and elevates the guest experience,” says David McDonald, President of Escalante Golf, owner of Kingsmill Resort. “The estate offers stunning views through expansive walls of retractable glass and unparalleled service that includes an estate manager and chef.”
The four-bedroom residence provides full access to Kingsmill Resort’s world-class amenities including golf, tennis, spa treatments, yoga and Pilates classes, two luxury SUVs, customized golf carts, private jet skis, personal shoppers, laundry service, and personalized menus and music selections. Guests will also have the rare opportunity to experience both the sunrise and sunset from the same location, as they gaze over the majestic river and across the historic landscape first seen by British settlers in 1607, where Pocahontas once walked and where America was born.
Stepping inside, visitors are greeted by a soaring entry punctuated by dramatic Teardrop Glass Chandeliers from the renowned RH artisan Timothy Oulton, highlighting a composition of gilded mirrors that cascade down the stairwell to create an endless reflection.
The adjacent gathering spaces have been re-imagined with curated RH collections that represent the best in global design and understated luxury. Commanding the center of the living room is a massive hand-forged Wright Chandelier by Ian K. Fowler, which floats above a striking Wyeth Split Bamboo Coffee Table by modern visionary John Birch. Asher Leather Chairs – inspired by a 19th-century English wingback – flank the fireplace while timeless Lancaster sofas are layered with hand-embossed Velvet Oushak Pillows by Rusty Arena.
The design language – defined by warm earth tones, mixed metals and classic, yet contemporary appeal – continues in the lounge where a generously scaled Cloud Leather Sectional by Oulton provides a relaxed, sink-in comfort and handcrafted, vintage-inspired tabletop games encourage guests to gather.
Each of the four master bedrooms showcases views of the river from king-sized beds, impeccably dressed in RH’s Italian 1000-Thread-Count Luxe Sateen linens by acclaimed Florentine textiles artisan, Carlo Bertelli. The corresponding en suite, spa-inspired bathrooms feature RH’s custom freestanding soaking tubs, herringbone vanities with polished nickel fittings, minimalist floating mirrors and luxe Turkish cotton towels.
Evoking ancient design motifs, hand-knotted RH rugs by acclaimed designer Ben Soleimani have been thoughtfully chosen for each room of the home to lend a sense of artistry and provenance.
Outside, a newly expanded terrace overlooks an infinity pool surrounded by RH Outdoor’s elegant Nantucket and Costa collections, each of which is designed to withstand the coastal environment while honoring the traditional aesthetic of the surrounding community.
The Estate at Kingsmill welcomed its first guest in October and is taking reservations through 2020. For additional information visit www.Kingsmill.com/the-estate.
