About the owner: My wife and I moved to the Eastern Shore about 20 years ago and live 20 mins away. We have come to love the juxtaposition of natural beauty and boating activities to be found on Onancock Creek. We maintain a vacation cottage on this property for our own use throughout the year. During the summer months, we love to boat into Onancock for dinner under the setting sun, and return under a sky full of stars. (Onancock Creek's channel is well-maintained and marked, for both daytime and nighttime traffic.)
Why the Owner Chose Onancock, VA, USA:
This is a wonderful house in a fabulous location. It is only minutes, by boat or car, from historic, vibrant Onancock with its shops, restaurants, and historic attractions. The house has 180 degree water views, offering a front row seat to the daily activities on the Creek: from early morning birds as they feed in the sunrise, to watermen heading out to the Bay for the day, to recreational boaters enjoying watersports or fishing, to the parade of yachting vessels arriving to spend the night in Onancock, to the final swoop of the shorebirds as they feed in the setting sun. The house has a long sandy private beach with a shallow shelf, making it perfect for children and for launching kayaks, canoes, or the owner-provided sunfish. Untouched natural areas are only a short paddle away, offering wonderful bird-watching opportunities. There is also a private deep water boat basin and 150' of dock, and a private 1100' grass airstrip.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house was completely rebuilt in 2009, with tropical hardwood walls and floors, granite countertops, and the finest amenities throughout. Use of two two-person kayaks and a Sunfish are included.
