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.

The Center of the Lower Eastern Shore Universe

Monday, April 30th, 2018
DSC_9722On Saturday April 28th, it really did seem that Cape Charles, Virginia became the center of attention of the Lower Shore Universe. What an absolutely glorious, sunny day for all the events ! The New Roots Youth Garden to kicked off its 2018 growing season with its 7th annual Open Garden event, colorful balloons, flags and wind spinners beckoning folks in at the corner of Fig and Randolph ! Down on Mason Avenue, Cape Charles Candy Company was settling in for its 1st sweet weekend- – as a friend used to say, its just not possible to have too much good candy….. And further on down Mason, after a long, long, long winter, Brown Dog Ice Cream was celebrating Opening Weekend 2018, our fav goodie parlor was packed with ice cream lovers of all ages, plenty of delicious 2 or 3 scoop cones walking out the door and bobbing down the street in the golden sunshine. ( Favorite flavors were on offer plus some new ones including “Asteroid”, although , as usual, I opted for the wonderful milk chocolate, yet resisting the temptation to get more than 1 scoop ! )
But the really big event Saturday was the Eastern Shore’s 71st Annual Virginia Garden Week celebration. This year it was centered primarily in Cape Charles with theDSC_9723 Garden Club hosting Tours of 3 homes in the Historic District and 2 homes in Bay Creek Golf Resort. Leading off in the Historic District was majestic “Bayholme”, one of the grandest of the Grand Dames of Cape Charles. With large classical columns and an imposing portico, it overlooks the beachfront on Bay Avenue. The owner’s well-behaved dog was casually sitting on a prime spot on the front lawn, a keenly interested but aloof observer of the comings and goings around her, a charming snapshot, “Man’s Best Friend”, providing a sweet, quiet vignette in an otherwise busy day. Next, over to Six Tazewell Avenue, which to my eye has one of the most beautiful and shapely porches in all Cape Charles. And I love the motto enshrined on its wall, “Be Kind”, the perfect sentiment for today’s contentious world. Over on Mason Avenue, Tour goers were treated to sights of the Harbor from the Wilson Building’s 4th floor condo. Enlivened by the gentle murmur of street life in the shops and galleries below, it offered visitors amazing views out to the Chesapeake Bay and a chance to revel in gentle breezes and the warmth of a glorious Spring day.
Onward and upward, over The Hump and through the woods to “Tide’s Point”, an imposing new home with a gorgeous entry courtyard, located on a wide finger of Old Plantation Creek in the Plantation Pointe village in Bay Creek Golf Resort. From there, to the Heron Pointe village sited along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, featuring a delightful entrance pond and flowing waterfall, accentuated by a life sized bronze waterfowl sculpture. The garden tour’s open home, “Serenity”, is aptly named, located on a quiet cul-de-sac with views of quiet woodlands and water. Overall, an interesting day, with sunny skies and warm temperatures combining to make it memorable.
