Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My husband and I have been married for 14 years and live in Charlotte, NC. We have two wonderful children and two great dogs. We both love the beach and actually met in Charleston, SC

Why the Owner Chose Cape Charles:
Cape Charles is a wonderful town on the Bay that has something for everyone to enjoy. My parents discovered this unique vacation spot years ago, that has since become their home and our vacation home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is perfectly located in the town of Cape Charles. We are 5 blocks from the beach, and only one block main street where there is great food and boutique shopping. I enjoy running and excercise and love that we are one block from the gym, and can take off in any direction and have an amazing scenic run. My husband is an avid angler, and has enjoyed the best fishing of his life with my father who is 'the best' Charter Captain on the Eastern Shore. Our children love the beach as they can walk out and it remains shallow for a long distance and the waves don't knock them over.
