Property description

Can you imagine a rural, contemporary/nautical, waterfront home only 45 minutes from the famous seashore of the Outer Banks, NC? Ten minutes away there is a ferry that will take you to Knott's Island for a day of fun there as well.
This 10 acre slice of paradise is located just south of the VA state line, with a quick 30 minute drive on the Chesapeake Expressway to the Norfolk/VA Beach shopping areas.
For complete privacy, the driveway is 3/10 of a mile long, which ends at the beautiful home that sits on 250' of bulkhead waterfront.
The bulkhead includes a 100' pier which takes you to a sandy bottom swimming area only 3' deep. Located on Tulls Bay, just off the water way, the water level is 6-7' foot deep in the channel for boating, skiing, wake boarding, tubing, or just floating by your boat.
Surrounded by a wildlife paradise, you can catch a glimpse of Egrets, Blue Heron, Purple Martins and an occasional American Eagle along the protected wetlands of the area. Fishing is superb; along with crabbing, clamming, and net fishing at night, with proper fishing license. By water, you are just a short run to the Northwest River, Back Bay and The Albermarle Sound. Boating is a must!
The yard is approx 2.5 acres with lush flower beds and of course, the expansive veiw of Tulls Bay. Each evening the western horizon illuminates with some of the most breathtaking sunsets your eyes have ever seen. A property like this is 'few and far between' and a great escape from the hustle and bustle of nearby Hampton Roads.
The house is a 2300 square feet contemporary design, professionally decorated by Sondra Cooke, of Creative Designs by Sondra. Her works have been acknowledged on MTV 'CRIBS' ( Missy Elliot's house) and she has won mutliple Golden Awards from the Tidewater Building Association. She has also won an award for 'Best Swimming Pool Design', a National recognition.
Highlights of the home interior include a complete work out gym, master bedroom with full view of the bay, hot tub on the back deck and jacuzzi tub in the master bath, and attached garage for boat or car storage.
The house is equipped with Direct T.V. with DVR capability and two large screen T.V.'s. The kitchen is complimented with an oversized refrigerator with commercial features and all the usual kitchen amenities. The back deck faces Tulls Bay and connnects to an enclosed Sun Room/Porch with sliding patio doors. The pier is just a short walk away, in addition to a masonry 'burn pit' for night time relaxing and star gazing.
So, get ready for a break from 'Rat Race' living! Launch your boat at the public ramp just approx. a mile away, tie up to the pier, and set sail for relaxation, recreation, and the discovery of one of the most diverse waterways on the east coast.

Please call, text, or e-mail Sonda Cooke with at 757-418-2444 or e-mail me at
