Discover The Low Key, Low Density Waterfront Life On The Eastern Shore of Virginia

Saturday, May 2nd, 2020

1766 Sand Hills Dr Cape-012-004-Exterior Front-MLS_SizeA slender peninsula with the Atlantic on one side and the Chesapeake on the other, Virginia’s Eastern Shore has always been a low density area offering beautiful waterfront, lots of open space, greenery and generations of nautical traditions. Tiny beachfront and boating neighborhoods are nestled between working farms of soybeans and wheat and have always been havens of tranquillity. But now these distinctive traits have taken on a new importance because for many buyers being on the waterfront yet having extra space is the ideal rather than just the desirable. If you are looking to work from home or have a second or retirement home getaway, Virginia’s Eastern Shore is a great choice, offering a slower, friendlier, uncrowded pace of life. Yet we are only an hour away from the Virginia Beach metro area offering lots of shopping, restaurants, cultural events and more.

 

 

This beautiful beachfront home of nearly 5000 sq.ft. is sited on 2 and a half spacious acres is located in a tiny upscale beach hamlet less than 15 minutes from the quaint historic town of Cape Charles. It’s the creme’ de la creme’ of beachfront and a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the best of the Eastern Shore. Of contemporary design, this top -of -the -line custom home

aerial looking west #1features 4 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths overlooking the Chesapeake Bay and a sparkling soft sand beach.

A well thought- out “green home”, it combines the very best in craftsmanship with a luxury coastal lifestyle. Offers a light and airy, open concept floor plan with ICF construction and a maintenance free exterior. Upgrades include reclaimed walnut floors, custom crafted window packages, huge media room, gourmet kitchen, vaulted ceilings, inside and outside fireplaces. The extensive back porches provide lots of entertaining area, perfect for both intimate and large get-togethers. Its east- west orientation offers spectacular sunrise and dazzling sunsets over the Bay. This is a great home that can combine living and working under one roof- – come see for yourself.

“Freezin’ For A Reason” 2020

Saturday, May 2nd, 2020

87957572_1276097459446576_3358553344732823552_oThe air may have been chilly, the water 🌊may have been icy but the spirits were warm ☀️and friendly at Eastern Shore of Virginia Habitat 🏡 for Humanity’s 2020 “Freezin for A Reason” benefit. A large crowd of supporters on shore watched as Celebrity Dippers Todd Burbage and Jamie Mahoney led the charge into the Bay from the Cape Charles beach 🏖. Ranging from young to old, the Dippers were an enthusiastic group, splashing 💦 into the water with abandon…. and racing back out with alacrity ! Kiptopeake Elementary School fielded a sizable team – Go, Kippers, go ! Members of the Cape Charles Coast Guard were on hand both as Dippers and to provide rescue help if needed and a Coast Guard cutter⚓️ patrolled off-shore throughout the event. Afterwards, lunch 😋and awards 🥇for the Dippers, a nice treat for lending a hand ( also their cold blue 🔹 toes ) for Habitat’s very important cause- helping to provide safe, affordable housing 🏡 here on the Shore.

Cape Charles Summer of LOVE ❤️

Thursday, August 8th, 2019

IMG_1449 croppedWhat do you get when you mix scores of wheels, Flower Power 🌸 🌺 and a bonfire 🔥? LOVEFEST 2019 ! And a fabulous Golf Cart Parade ! Tons of fun and 1960’s costumes to boot, totally groovy ! Kicked off by a group photo at the LOVE sign, on to a “Start Your Golf Cart” command from Parade Master Jim Holloway, they were off to paint the town with peace and love. So many wonderfully decorated carts- I’m sure it was hard for the 3 judges to make call between 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. And congrats to Nancy and George Proto on their 50th anniversary. Their wedding 👰🤵themed golf cart was truly a work of art. After the Parade everyone gathered at the beach for a celebratory bonfire 🔥 which was going strong until the storm came up and it had to be extinguished. But LOVEFEST was a great idea- hopefully it can become an annual event and we can look forward to LOVEFEST ❤️ 2020 !
