About the Property

Steps away from the water, friendly town

The Parsonage was built in 1836 and was restored between 2001 and 2010. The house has a large front porch with rockers and a table for coffee or lunch. There are three bedrooms on the second level. The master bedroom has a queen bed with en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. Guest room#1 has a queen bed with private sink that opens into a shared bathroom. Guestroom#2 (Loft) has a sleep number full sized bed with shared bathroom. The large guest bathroom includes walk-in shower and claw foot soaking tub. A washer and dryer are in a separate room.
The main level of the house includes a parlor a game room with television, couch and foosball table, puzzles and books. The kitchen is an open plan with dining room and sun room. There is also a bathroom with a shower on the main living level.
The house was renovated following a fire so everything is new. Bathrooms are all ceramic tile and the kitchen has granite counter tops with an eat in table and a built in bar for gathering around. The kitchen contains everything you will need including basic pantry items. Back deck has a grill and two sheds that contain bikes for your use to get around town even though everything is in walking distance.
The Wharf is only steps away where you can rent kayaks, bikes, fish or crab from the dock or take the ferry to visit Tangier Island for the day. There is a public boat ramp at the same location. If you have a boat there is so much to explore. Onancock Creek is about 4 miles long and opens up into the Chesapeake Bay. The area is pristine with secluded beaches all up and down the coast.
If the ocean is your thing, Assateague National Park is about a 35 minute drive to the North. It is the closest beach with surf and easy parking. The town of Chincoteague is a fun day trip.
The town of Onancock has a charm all its own. It has a small town feel where your kids can walk down the street and go fishing and you don't have to worry about them.

Historic Onancock is a lovely small town that is family friendly. Onancock Wharf is steps from the house where you can rent a kayak, fish or launch a boat at the public boat ramp. The Chesapeake Bay is a 4 mile paddle with beaches along the way. The town hosts artists and galleries, shops, antiques and wonderful restaurants. If you like to cycle, the Eastern Shore is flat and fun to cycle short or long distances. Waterfront is found at the end of many roads on this small peninsula. The Bay is on one side and the ocean is on the other side. There is a movie theater in town and a playhouse featuring live performances.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We have lived in Northern Virginia for 35 years. Onancock is our weekend getaway. We spent nearly 10 years (of weekends) renovating the house after a fire. The house originally belonged to the historic Cokesbury Church and was the home of the minister. We got caught up in the story and decided to renovate instead of tearing it down. It contains the original heart pine floors in the master bedroom and the beams on the main floor are original. We filled it with some our favorite things, some antiques, some new furniture and just love coming here.

Why the Owner Chose Onancock, VA, USA:
It is a wonderful getaway where you can let your hair down and relax! We love to cycle, kayak and boat so this was the perfect place for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can sit on the front porch in a rocking chair and watch the fishing boats go up and down the creek while you drink your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. Whether you are a friend or a stranger, neighbors wave as they walk by. In the summer, you can buy fresh fish right across the street. There is also a farmer's market on Saturdays where you can purchase fresh picked produce and some local seafood. We love that the restaurants are only steps away. The sunsets are beautiful sitting on the deck at Mallards Restaurant.
