Cape Charles house description

Take a fun and relaxing break in this exciting 3 bedroom retreat with gorgeous Chesapeake Bay views! You'll enjoy the upscale casual elegance of this bright, cheerful West Indies style home decorated with quality furnishings and tasteful appointments. This sunny home is located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia across the Chesapeake Bay from Virginia Beach. Cook to your heart's delight in a gourmet kitchen, grill on the deck or walk to the Marina and dine inside or out at the Aqua Restaurant. The top level 'sky room' is a great place to enjoy the views, read, or watch TV and is complete with a wet bar, refrigerator and large screen HD TV. If a 4th bedroom is needed, there is a very comfortable pull-out queen sofa here. Two expansive porches invite outdoor relaxation, sunbathing and casual dining. The lower porch has a 'rain escape' system which allows dry enjoyment even in the rain! The Great Room has comfortable seating, a game table and large screen HD TV. Table games and cards are available along with a nice selection of books. And last but not least, take a short stroll along the beach.

The house is located in Bay Creek Marina within walking distance of the beach, restaurant and marina. There are two championship golf courses (Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer) in town with great golf packages. An olympic-size pool and tennis are yours to enjoy on the golf side of Bay-Creek, a short 5 minute drive. Several restaurants offer the options of fine dining to very casual. Boating, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, jet skiing, antiquing, horseback riding, eco tours and Bay cruises will fill your days along with relaxing on the Marina's private beach just steps away from the front door -- or chill out inside and relish your escape to the comforts and amenities provided at 'Cape Escape'.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: My sister, Barbara, and I own this house together. We are both real estate agents with very few weekends off but when they come along, this is one of our favorite ways to spend them. Our families were even more excited when we bought the house since they have more free time to play than we do. We furnished and decorated the house ourselves (which is a hobby for both of us) and had a great time doing it and love finding ways to make it better each time we have a guest. Everyone says we have the nicest house in Cape Charles! We love to think so, and hope you will too.

                  Why the Owner Chose Cape Charles:
                  We went exploring on a rainy Easter weekend looking for a great place to escape to on occasion as well as a good investment. We discovered the charming historic town of Cape Charles and were so impressed with the development of the Bay Creek Resort and all it's amenities that we had to jump in with both feet. It took us about 20 minutes to make that decision!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  You can spend the day golfing or boating or antiquing or just chill out on the beach or read a good book on the deck. We've tried out the great restaurants but love 'Aqua' which is in the Marina. Kelly's Pub on the 'main drag' of Cape Charles is a great casual hang out too, and the food is good! The town of Cape Charles is small and quite charming and takes you away from the 'workaday world' and all its stresses.
