Built in 1976, this former Bed and Breakfast sits in a wooded lot across from the College of William and Mary.

The three story home was built in a traditional Cape Cod style and has the atmosphere of a historic home, with many modern amenities, including modern appliances.

Even though the current homeowners, Stuart and Elizabeth Honenberger, love being able to walk to William and Mary sporting events and the Williamsburg farmer's market on Saturdays, they have decided to put the 4,445 square foot home on the market.

“We love this house but we feel like our little family just isn't utilizing all of the space it has. We only use about a third of our living space.” Elizabeth said. “This house is fantastic for larger families or for people who entertain frequently.”

The house has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and three living rooms (four if you count the living area off of the master bedroom), so there is a lot of flexibility for many people to enjoy the house simultaneously, according to Elizabeth Honenberger.

“There are so many neat nooks and charming rooms in our house,” Honenberger said. “We have three living rooms, four if you include the living area off of our master bedroom.  My husband can have a football party in the basement while I enjoy tea and conversation with a friend in the formal living room while the kids can watch a movie in the family room all at the same time. We have six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and enough hot water that our house can be full and everyone can shower at the same time.”

The home also has six natural gas fireplaces, with an authentic 18th century mantle in the formal living room, which has been the setting for several marriage ceremonies.
