An estate in Williamsburg, Virginia that was originally built as a mansion for the Busch family (of Budweiser Beer and Busch Gardens) is now on the rental market following a $3 million renovation.
This location on the James River is also the historic landscape first seen by British settlers in 1607, and where Pocahontas once walked.
Starting in 2020, the estate will be available to rent for $1 million a year. Usually rents for about $5,000 to $6,000 a night (it sleeps eight). But the longterm lease will also come with access to two luxury Denali SUVs and two luxury golf carts. There is also 24/7 concierge service and a private chef from Monday through Friday and a $50,000 per person food and beverage credit at Kingsmill Resort.
The 7,000-s/f four-bedroom residence estate also boasts views of the James River and Jamestown Island, from the infinity pool and outdoor deck of the property.
Lisa Wandrey, Estate Sales Manager, Kingsmill, is handling this listing.
