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.

❤️OUR BEAUTIFUL HARBINGERS OF SPRING ON THE EASTERN SHORE 🌊- – OUR SPECTACULAR 💐BLOSSOMS !

Saturday, May 2nd, 2020

Pink tree bay storage( This is a repost from 🌱Spring, 2019. Like everyone else, Blue Heron has been getting organized for #SocialDistancing with little time for photo 📷 taking. ) But, especially now, we all need to take a little cheer where it appears. Since 🌹Spring brings a whole Universe of Pink 🌸 to Virginia’s Eastern Shore 🌊 we decided to repost these beautiful Shore Spring photos. And when we say Pink we mean the whole Pink color 🌸🌺 🌷💐spectrum- – from fuchsia, magenta, rouge and softest rose to barely blushing apple blossom. (Need we say more, it’s truly Pink ! ) And we love it, because of course, Pink is the universal color of 💗love. So, blossoms blazing everywhere…. in yards, along roads, by offices and in woodlands, a special Spring ❤️ Valentine straight from Mother Nature.

And of course, there are other showy Spring colors, the sunny green 🌱stems and yellows and oranges of daffodil blooms, and jonquils, the Bradford pear trees 🌳with myriad white blossoms covering the entire tree with a snow- like blanket. Or the tiny dogwoods with delicate yellow centered blooms, variegated white and red 🌺 camellias, lavender azaleas, lilac- colored 💜laurels, all contributing to the joyful celebration of Spring. So ….Keep Calm, Spring has Sprung ! To borrow a phrase – Live in the Sunshine 🌞, Swim the Sea 🌊Drink the Wild Air 🌬! Because it’s Spring on the Eastern Shore 🌊 and even the Coronavirus can’t stop Mother Nature from showing her true colors 🌈!

In another Cape Charles first, Bay Haven Inn launches cooking class program on Valentine’s weekend. Who wouldn’t 💕 that?

Saturday, May 2nd, 2020

86350484_1270060220050300_6299163735424499712_oA new tradition got started Valentine’s ❤️weekend at Bay Haven Inn of Cape Charles with the introduction of its first-ever cooking class program. Proprietors Tammy and Jim Holloway have had hundreds of requests over the years for recipes on how to make their Signature 🌟 Sweet Potato Biscuits and other yummy house specialties. So what could be more logical than to launch a series of cooking classes that guests can book when they reserve their rooms ? Planned for the winter season, November through March, Bay Haven Inn will present “What’s Cooking at Bay Haven” as a fun new offering for guests on selected weekends. Non- guests are welcome too if space allows.

For the kick-off last Saturday, Inn guests Kathy and Eric, along with Blue Heron Realty agent Montaigne Cree, joined Jim Holloway 👨‍🍳 in the Inn’s gorgeous new kitchen. An aficionado 🤗 of Southern style sweet potato biscuits, Montaigne was anxious to jump in and learn Jim’s techniques for his delicious biscuit flavor and pleasing texture. I was along as the unofficial 😋 Taster- which is very hard work but…. someone has to do it! After donning special Bay Haven Inn aprons, the group dove right into the 4 Lessons – compound butters, sweet potato biscuits, mile-high popovers, wrapping up with the truly decadent Ooey-Gooey French Toast.

First up, preparing various compound butters to complement the mile-high popovers of Lesson 3. Orange zest 🍊, lingonberry and rosemary/thyme herb butters 🧈were carefully mixed and rolled up log-shape87070696_1270059456717043_3729512929968521216_o in Saran wrap to chill- ultimate goal, spreading on the piping-hot-from-the-oven Popovers to come.

Next, Jim’s famous Bay Haven Sweet Potato Biscuits. Much measuring, sifting, 🥣 mixing, folding, stirring 🥄 plus more stirring and folding before the batter was ready to pat out and cut into biscuits. ( Tip- Jim lines his sheet pans with silpat non-stick silicon liners which he swears by as the only baking sheet liners to use. And he made me a convert after seeing his silpats in action, next stop Bed, Bath and Beyond.) Into the oven for these orange colored yummies and on to making mile-high popovers.

Without exaggeration, Jim and Tammy’s recipe for popovers produces the tallest, tenderest popovers I have ever had ! Mile-high and truly delicious! The secret ? Using an electric mixer 🍜 to blend the ingredients until super foamy and smooth, rest the batter for an hour. Ladle into some really tall, cool-looking popover pans. End result ? Spectacular to look at and scrumptious to eat – – crunchy on the outside and melt-in-the-mouth on the inside. And oh so wonderful with the compound butters from Lesson 1- quite surprised to enjoy the savory herb 🌿 butter best !

Last but definitely not least, the French 🍞 Toast Lesson. So what do you get when you foam butter, Karo Syrup and brown sugar over gentle heat, then separately mix lots of 🥚 eggs, half and half🍶 cream, Grand Marnier, nutmeg and cinnamon in a big bowl ? Well, when you pour the foamed butter mixture into the bottom of a stoneware or Pyrex pan, add bread 🍞 slices, pour the cream mixture over top, refrigerate overnight and then bake in the morning you get …… a magical breakfast of Ooey Gooey French Toast.

85123461_1270059983383657_1073371121077714944_oWhat a wonderful afternoon everyone had, cooking, conversation and delicious, fresh from the oven treats ! Jim is a natural 🧑‍🍳 teacher, patient and fun. The well-equipped kitchen, spacious and light-filled, made everything so pleasant. The “students” got to keep the goodies they made and the unofficial Taster went home with a bag 🛍 of goodies too. So a very successful kickoff for “What’s Cooking at Bay Haven.”
