Reedville house description

This breathtaking, custom-built, luxury home boasts wall-to-wall sliding glass doors on the main floor that overlook the mouth of the Potomac as it opens into the Chesapeake Bay. The home is designed to give the illusion of sitting on a boat or ship on the water when enjoying the main floor.

Warm yourself with the white marble framed fireplace this Fall and Winter. The third story or cupola offers a 360 degree view of the river, bay, creek and quiet countryside that leads up to the property. Fall foliage colors lay beneath you as far as the eye can see. Eagles often rest in the large, towering trees next to the house with an eye-to-eye view of them.

The estate is surrounded by a 8 foot privacy fence creating a sense that you’re the only one on the water while staying here. Over 300 feet of shoreline surround the property offering you never ending WATERFRONT VIEWS of the beautiful Potomac River and the large ships that cross the horizon on the Chesapeake Bay.

Home is decorated with fine quality furniture, antiques, and appointments. More details below photos.

Water Access, Beaches and Fishing: Water access avail. off private pier (~5 ft mean water depth @ high tide). Home is on 'big water' where dramatic, beautiful storms move in quickly. Guest watercraft /must/ be moored overnight @ nearby Marina for separate fee or can be launched daily for free @ small creek (1.25mi) & returned to trailer each night.

Private pier & lower tier rip-rap offer great vantages for fishing. Guests, neighbors & friends catch bluefish, rockfish, croaker, skate, and an abundance of blue crab along our share of the river/bay. For safety and sanitary reasons, fish MUST be cleaned on cleaning table outside the courtyard area of the property. ALL Hooks, equip., lines MUST BE POLICED/REMOVED.

Beach Access.
Fall and Winter Seasons: Quiet walks along the beach as well as sunny hamlets hidden from the winds offer great reading and resting opportunities with first row seating for Eagle, Osprey and Blue Heron watching.

Peak Season: Nearby beach & creek great places for crab hunting/sunbathingy.

Many guests have rented kayaks or small boats from a local company for their stay to enjoy the water even more. Please ask for details. All watercraft are delivered directly to the property.

The Bedrooms: The romantic, spacious master suite covers the entire 2nd floor with a king size bed facing French doors that open to a widows walk. This room offers two reading areas overlooking different views of the water and surrounding scenes as well as a spacious walk-in closet/dressing room. The room is also furnished with a large, antique wooden desk for checking email or for many of our guests 'working from home' during the course of their stay. The master bath offers a spacious waterfall shower, massage shower heads and shower bench with his/her vanities.

The 2nd bedroom is located on the main floor next to its own bathroom & has a full size bed. Views of the Bay greet you as you wake with your own private sliding door access to the screened-in porch. It is a perfect size/location for children, a visiting grandparent/au pair/nanny or for napping guests.

The Guest House: The Guest House is also AVAILABLE FOR RENT AT A SEPARATE RATE for guests requiring overflow/additional sleeping arrangements. It offers its own private, full kitchen and dining area, powder room, and living room with wall to wall water views. The Master Suite encompasses the entire 2nd story and offers wrap around windows, a private bath with waterfall shower, and built in wardrobe/closet for a comfortable stay. Like the main house bedroom, it offers a wonderful reading nook overlooking the expansive waterfront views. Finally, the guest house offers its own private deck for morning sunning and coffee or catching the evening sunset.

                              Owner info

                              About the owner: Matthew is a native Virginian whose family have loved and enjoyed the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay his whole life. Lachelle grew up in the Midwest on the plains, kayaking, canoeing, and enjoying water-sports on the rivers and lakes that weave their way through Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri.

                              Why the Owner Chose Reedville:
                              We were stunned when we pulled up into the drive the first time to see 711 Marshalls Beach Road. The wind was strong, whitecaps rolled across the mouth of the river. (Lachelle felt right at home, as if she was back on the windy plains in Iowa.) As we entered the garden gate, we were stunned. No one could have prepared us for the expansive, break-taking view of the Chesapeake Bay that greeted us as we entered the courtyard.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Our home is the only home on Marshalls Beach that is rented. You are surrounded by Richmond and Northern Virginia families who have traveled here every weekend through the summer for as many as seven generations. Southern hospitality abounds. The design of the home is the greatest feedback we receive. Every local contractor, builder, real estate agent or neighbor who visits us at the house are floored -- completely awestruck by the property. Many of these folks grew up on the Bay and River or have lived/worked the properties there for years. We think that says it all.
