                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: We have been married for almost 20 years and a son in college. We live and work year round on the Shore. We moved here permanently 10 years ago because we loved the quiet, rural way a life. We also love to flounder fish on the seaside and beachcomb on Cobb Island. Before working for the Town of Cape Charles, Dave was a builder in the Hampton Roads area. His talent is residential renovations, thus this investment/hobby! I push paper for UVA's Anhueser-Busch Coastal Research Center in Oyster. In my spare time, I keep honeybees.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cape Charles:
                      We purchased this house as an investment and because of its charm. It is an older house that was used as a sleep-over for the railroad engineers.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      This is such a quiet spot, located on a rural road with a farm field behind the house. If you have a boat or boats and are focused on fishing, this house is about 5 minutes from Oyster and 10 minutes from Cape Charles boat ramps (both free). Easy drive to both. Plenty of boat and truck parking and...a fish cleaning table.
