Virginia's Chesapeake Bay Country is an amazing place to have as a weekend getaway! 

Here are a few homes to make that getaway a reality! 

Cottage on the Corrotoman

On a knoll overlooking the Corrotoman River, this quaint home is reminiscent of a Cotswold cottage. With wide river vista & serene creek views, it encompasses the ultimate Bay setting. Added benefit of significant elevation out of the flood zone, yet is enhanced by a gentle slope to Taylors Creek for easy access to the private dock.

Stunning Shingle Style on Carters Creek 

On Carters Creek in the heart of the quaint coastal village of Irvington, this striking, custom design with cedar shakes and white trim is reminiscent of an early seaside resort. The style provides the allure of times past, yet blends innovative details of today’s lifestyle to create an inspired river retreat. The residence with private pool fits the site like a glove.

Created to accommodate two families with compatible, but different aesthetics, one design reflects classic Virginia style and the other an open, coastal design. This luxury home offers an inspired river retreat that is ideal for shared living or group gathering place.
