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 🌈!

The 17 th Annual Eastern Shore Artisan Guild Holiday Tour Was A Huge Success !

Friday, December 6th, 2019

DSC_7373This annual studio tour, held the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving 🍁each year, is one of our very favorite arts 🖼 events of the year. Covering studios reaching from Capeville at the Shore’s very southern tip as far north as Onancock, offering dozens of mediums ranging from heavy oils to silk embroidery to decoy 🦆 carvings, from huge wood sculptures to finely cast bronzes to intricate ceramics and jewelry and much more, this event truly has something for nearly every taste. And a great way to find unique gifts 🎁 for folks on your holiday list.

We started at Danny Doughty’s studio in Onancock which is not on the official tour but which is so close to 4 locations on the tour that it’s easy to drop in to take a peek78318591_1195745894148400_5490258846255415296_o at his new pieces- – not to speak of the beautiful 🎄tree Danny always decorates for his studio. From there, off to Ker Place with decoys, 🖼paintings and jewelry, then off to see Vesna’s new pottery pieces. Heading out from there to the historic Onancock School, which sports a new LOVE ❤️ sign, where embroidery “paintings” , decoys and Bobby Bridges whimsical wind directionals added lots of color to the show.

DSC_7430By The Bay 🦙 Alpaca farm was delightful, such cute and furry creatures, calm and patient. And if you’re looking for the world softest and warmest, must try alpaca sox 🧦! But the other incredibly soft item for sale was a tiny alpaca fur 🧸 teddy bear, so sweet, ready for lots of hugs and kisses from a new owner. Next up, sculptor Moe Spector’s place where several different artists had organized tents for the Tour including Marty Burgess, Guy Shover, David Crane and Brenda Clark offering paintings, stoneware and ceramics. From there to Wachapreague for Jacobson and Bilicki Fine 🖼Art. Sadly, it was not possible to do all the stops, so at sunset we were off to our last stop, Windsor House at the very southern tip, to see the Lewin’s hand crafted fine furniture, Buck Doughty’s steel sculptures and some amazing pots from Gecko Pottery. And that wrapped up the 2019 Tour for us, looking forward to Thanksgiving 2020.
