Gloucester house description

'You have to see it to believe it. Wareloch is one of the few places on earth where you can experience uninterrupted views of land and sea, not a neighbor in sight. Gorgeous spot, lovely home, gracious host. Pure paradise!' Previous Guest's Comment

Wareloch is one of the few remaining places where you can enjoy sweeping, uninterrupted views of the Ware River and Mobjack Bay – an arm of the Chesapeake Bay. Located on 90 acres of family-owned waterfront property, Wareloch is on a natural inlet between two coves with beautiful private, secluded beaches.

Children can enjoy a swim in the river, build a sandcastle or play hide-and-seek in the boxwood gardens. Adults can relax by the water – a good read in one hand and a favorite beverage in the other. Nature lovers can take leisurely strolls along the private, half-mile lane, under a canopy of loblolly pines, magnolias and hollies. Animal watchers can observe such wildlife paradise as ospreys, snowy egrets, blue herons, bald eagles, great horned owls, wild turkeys, white-tail deer and more. Or you can kayak along the shoreline, soak up the sun on the private beaches, or find your own peaceful spot at a scenic paradise we call Wareloch.

Wareloch is the perfect spot to host family and friends for the holidays or anytime you want to gather at one place. The kitchen is fully stocked and the dining room can seat 10-12 guests. This 3,900-square-foot home has 12 rooms featuring 4 bedrooms (1 king, 1 double, 2 twins, 2 twins & a futon), 2 ½ baths, formal living room, dining room, den (sofa bed), library (sofa bed), music room, breakfast room, kitchen, butler’s pantry and screened porch. The kitchen features new cabinets, countertops and appliances. Whether you come with family or friends, you will find Wareloch is an unbelievable place that will beckon you back year after year. We are happy to answer any questions and help you plan your perfect vacation getaway!

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Born and raised in Gloucester. Attended the University of Virginia for my undergraduate degree and the College of William and Mary for my M.B.A. I reside in Williamsburg full-time with my family and pets. I teach as an adjunct professor of Economics for Thomas Nelson Community College. The rest of my time I spend volunteering at my daughters' elementary school and maintaining Wareloch! I am happy to help you plan your perfect getaway to the Tidewater area!!

                  Why the Owner Chose Gloucester:
                  I grew up in Gloucester. When my uncle passed he left me his beautiful home on the water. I spent many hours as a child on the beach and playing in the woods here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  For me Wareloch is the perfect getaway spot, I love the tranquility and peacefulness here. Whether I am enjoying the view by the water or taking a walk through the woods, it is a place that rejuvenates the soul.
