Rappahannock Waterfront Estate for Sale
In all my years of selling real estate, I am proud to announce a rare opportunity for a home buyer to obtain their very own private wide riverfront paradise on 10 acres of true waterfront land. This stately brick home was built to the highest standards and is situated perfectly with a southern exposure to the scenic and expansive Rappahannock River with the quant historic town of Port Royal directly across waterway.
It has deeply rooted history in the soil on and around the property dating back from the Native American Indians to Colonial Days where Port Conway existed as a key point of trade. John Wilkes Booth used the property to find transport across the river to find refuge in a barn on the Garrett farm. The yard was once used as a staging and camp during the Civil War. The shoreline held the union gunboats at bay. Belle Grove Plantation, the birthplace of President James Madison is next door across Rt. 301 from this oasis.
From the history, to the breath taking water views to the endless possibilities this property has to offer, you truly feel at home and a world away from the fast paced life around you. Create your very own hobby farm with already established fenced in pastures, chicken/fowl coop and stocked fish pond. Bring any type of livestock. Property would be an ideal bed and breakfast or event space. Current owners have hosted weddings, and boy scout troop retreats and large family gatherings. This impressive 5,000 total square foot Federal style home is filled with tons of character and quality craftsman's ship from the 9 foot ceiling to the hardwood flooring that fills the home. Bright and Open kitchen with breakfast nook, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and tons of storage plus a butlers pantry. Cozy Family room offers a wall of windows to overlook the lush landscaping of the back yard along with a wood burning fireplace that is Santa Approved with an extra tall and wide opening. Partially finished walk out basement is perfect for a recreation space or private office. This serene property is bustling with multiple varieties of Fruit Trees and varies species of trees and flowers. The English garden is exquisite when everything comes in bloom.
