The Chesapeake Beach House is a rare retreat with plenty of room for two families.  The property is one of a kind with 360 degree waterfront views, over 10 acres, 2300′ waterfront, and private sand beach on the Chesapeake Bay.  Amazing views across the Bay to Cape Charles (you can see the lights of Eastern Shore on a clear night), and southern views to Mobjack Bay.  The custom built home is storm fortified with hurricane shutters, steel beams, and reinforced roofing.  Covering over 4400 sq. ft., the contemporary style home has wonderful features including an indoor lap pool.  Multiple decks overlook the beach, lovely dunes, and seaside plantings.  Other amenities include 30 KW generator, irrigation system, paved driveway, five car garage, and two septic tanks.  Adjoining half acre is available and has a 5 bedroom septic system already installed.  This is truly a beach lover’s dream!

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.
