Sold CBRAR #1817067

Catherine’s Cove is the perfect waterfront retreat with views over Winter Harbor to the Chesapeake Bay.  Custom built by the owners in classic Low Country style, this home offers tranquility and privacy on +6 acres including a pier with fish cleaning station. Thoughtful attention to detail with cathedral ceiling, reclaimed wood floors, Pella windows and French doors to let the light shine in and surround you with nature.  Two covered porches plus a huge screened porch provide ample space to spread out and take in the views.  Under the house there’s a concrete parking pad, kayak/canoe rack, outdoor shower, and latticed storage area.  The home is tastefully decorated and is being offered turn-key including riding mower, yard tools, two kayaks and a canoe (some personal items will not convey).  This would be a great full-time or second home, or a rental investment as the property has a solid rental history with VRBO.

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.
