Reedville house description

Nestled under towering pines and surrounded by an acre of evergreens, we peer out east across the endless and beautiful Chesapeake Bay. The 180 degree view is breathtaking from our private beach, grand porch, or any room in the house. The sunrise is spectacular and nature's beautiful colors change throughout the day.

Whether you're ready for action or much needed relaxation we've got it all. Kids and adults will love the sand and surf just 80 feet from our door. The shallow and protected water makes all kinds of water activities possible - in a safe environment. Land lovers can be equally active by biking or hiking the country roads that wind around the many creeks, inlets, and other tributaries. And everyone can enjoy our many outdoor and indoor games.

You R&R-types are in luck too. Choose to snooze on the porch or the bayside hammock - the views are both outstanding if you can stay awake. Read a good book. We have many and welcome exchanges. View distant merchant ships, Tangier Island, the Bay's only private lighthouse, and a vast array of waterfowl using our binoculars and telescope. Explore historic Reedville, once considered one of the wealthiest towns in America. The 19th-century mansions will astound you. A fisherman's museum, antique shops, and fine restaurants are also popular attractions.

Save some energy for the evening. Cookouts are a must, particularly on the expansive porch and outdoor dining area. Enjoy your dessert bayside while sitting around the firepit. The s'mores, songs, stories, and stars seem all the better by the water's edge.

Our home is a classic southern-living design aptly named 'The Carolina House' due to its predominant use among Carolina country elite. It boasts a grand front and back porch perfect for entertaining and relaxing. The floorplan is open and airy with an emphasis on bay views. The kitchen and eat-in area are the hub of indoor activity with a spectacular 180-degree Bay view. All three bedrooms have their own full bath.

Our additional detached guest house is now available. It has a bedroom, bunkroom, game room, full bath, kitchenette, and sleeps 6. It is strictly for use by whomever is renting the main house and will not be rented separately to another party.

                  Location

                  All water sports are available and enhanced by the shallow/calm/protected waters. Fishing is outstanding on our private beach, by taking a nearby chartered boat, or by bringing your own boat to dock/launch within minutes of our house. Lawn activities include volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, and croquet.

                  And we consider R&R an activity too! Snooze in the bayside hammock or porch. Read a good book - we have many and encourage exchanges. Peer through our binoculars or telescope to see an abundance of waterfowl, distant merchant ships, Tangier and Smith Island - with a neat lighthouse - and take a cruise to the Islands too. And don't forget to visit Reedville - it's minutes away and has fascinating 19th century mansions, antiques, fine restaurants, an old-time ice-cream parlor, fisherman's museum, and lots more.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We are Northern Virginia natives who love the outdoors - particularly the beach and mountains. We enjoy short excursions to B&Bs and wineries. We are high-energy, sports-oriented but crave down-time too. Our hobbies include building sandcastles, building sandcastles, and building sandcastles!

                  Why the Owner Chose Reedville:
                  Our friends bought a waterfront home just south of us 6-years ago. We loved visiting them and eventually found our dream home in the fall of 2011. This is our idea of paradise. It feels like we're at the ocean and deep in the Carolina woods at the same time. It is an easy and beautiful commute through rural farmland and rustic old towns. There are so many things to see and do in a wholesome, family-friendly environment.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We enjoy our private beach more than anything. Whether beachcombing, romping in the water, or just relaxing you can't beat the setting. Our view of the Bay is equally spectacular whether you're down on the beach, nestled in a recliner on the porch, or making a meal in the kitchen. Playtime is endless and the days seem too short. Nightime is fun too. And everything revolves around the entire family having a good time - together.
