About Carolyn Davis

I am a licensed real estate agent. I specialize in the sale of historic properties, land and timber. I live in a small rural town in central Virginia. I enjoy my work, family and travel. In my spare time I spend lazy days at the lookout cottage fishing, crabbing, cooking and relaxing with my grandchildren.

Carolyn Davis purchased this House in 2007

Why Carolyn Davis chose New Point

My husband and I decided to look for a building lot in the Mathews area. First we found the plans for the lookout cottage and then set out to find just the right spot to build it. When we came upon this lot there were already piles up as if someone had started construction. When we asked the owner why the pile were in place, we found he was starting to build the very same home we had choosen, but decided to enlarge the floor plan and build on the adjoining lot. So our dream home was being built even before we found it. We looked no further and you must admit the view is wonderful.

What makes this House unique

We enjoy the fact that most of the homes around us are occupied by owners who live there year round. It gives us an added sense of being in a community. We love the view, fishing and crabbing and never get tired of just gazing out at the incredible view. We have even seen deer on the beach, a bald eagle, swans and dolphin. The water is shallow and great for children, yet deep enough to dock a boat at the pier.
