Beau Soleil is a charming, coastal circa 1910 farmhouse beautifully renovated with unobstructed views of Hills Bay and the Piankatank. You will find the best sunsets on Gwynn’s Island here! Situated on 1.45 acres, this family retreat lies out of the flood zone and provides lots of space to enjoy the “Island Life”.  The thoroughly updated home includes an open and bright kitchen with granite countertops, a completely new waterside screened porch with amazing views, plus gorgeous wood floors. Both full baths have been tastefully redesigned, with the master suite adding a large jetted tub. This property has deeded water access to the Piankatank River and Hills Bay, just walking distance from the front door, plus a small strip of waterfront land. This gem is being sold completely furnished! Topped off with a detached one car garage and a gardening shed, it is truly a place where history meets the river lifestyle.

Mathews County

Mathews is the second smallest county in Virginia, with 252 square miles, and has a population of approximately 9000.  In 1791, Mathews County was formed from a part of Gloucester and named for Revolutionary War General Thomas Mathews.  Well-known for its waterways, Mathews boasts 214 miles of waterfront, with much of that frontage on the Chesapeake Bay, Piankatank River, North and East Rivers, and Mobjack Bay. All this water makes Mathews a haven for boaters, kayakers, fishermen, and nature lovers.
