Irvington cottage description

Come unwind and relax at this jewel box of a house in the heart of Irvington, VA! This lovely and stylish home is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, a quiet retreat, a great place to chill after a bike ride or a day of kayaking or golfing.

Conveniently located walking distance to almost everything that charming Irvington has to offer. Situated on a lovely half acre lot between the renowned five star Tides Inn Resort and the Hope and Glory Inn, the Blue House offers privacy while just moments to it all!

Historic Irvington, VA has been called 'Mayberry meets Manhattan.' Enjoy this quaint quintessential waterfront village without sacrificing great dining, shopping or style. Our house is an easy stroll or bike ride to a delicious meal at Nate's Trick Dog Cafe, great coffee and more at The Local, and the Chesapeake Club at The Tides Inn.

The shops Jimmy and Sook and the The Dandelion will keep you in style, Brocante Home has a lovely French flavor for home decor, and Village Needlepoint for the crafter, are also just up the street. The Tides Inn offers amazing spa services and an upscale gift shop.

Enjoy history? Walk to The Steamboat Museum. Historic Christ Church is one of the oldest churches in the nation and is just a short drive. The towns of Kilmarnock and Lancaster Courthouse have small museums focused on local history. There are many other historic sight nearby.

Rent a boat for fun or fishing. Golf at one of the famous local Irvington courses, The Golden Eagle, or the King Carter or the Tartan Golf course designed by Sir Guy Campbell.

The first Saturday of the month, Irvington hosts a wonderful Farmer's Market in the town square (yes, you can walk there as well!) It's an open air market featuring farm fresh produce and meats, art, crafts, plants, and something for everyone. There are other markets in nearby towns as well -- Kilmarnock, Heathsville, Urbanna and Mathews.

Two miles to the east is the wonderful town of White Stone. Stop in at The River Market, Seven -- a sinful Martini bar, dine at The Sandpiper, Bentleys, or Willaby's or shop for fashionable clothes and accessories at Farm. Take scenic Windmill Point Road to Charlie's Tiki Bar and enjoy drinks and watch the sunset of the Chesapeake Bay.

Kilmarnock, VA is about a seven minute drive. There are great high end and casual restaurants there as well: Town Bistro, Roses Steak and Seafood, Thai Pot, Carried Away Cuisine, Savannah Joe's Barbeque, and The Car Wash Cafe. Great antique stores, upscale shopping and RAL -- the Rappahannock Art League Gallery are all worth a visit.

There are some great local vineyards nearby for wine lovers. The Dog and Oyster Vineyard is an easy bike ride up the road. Good Luck Cellars is in nearby Kilmarnock, Jacey Vineyards and Athena Vineyards are also close by.

The Northern Neck is known for its festivals, parades and events. All year long there are things to do and see. The Fourth of July features local small town parades with vintage cars and fire engines. The Irvington Parade goes right by the house.

Plan a trip to our house and let the stress melt away!

                  About the owner: An eclectic urban couple that loves the city but also enjoy getting away from it all.

                  Why the Owner Chose Irvington:
