Gwynnsville Point at Milford Haven . . . almost 7 acres of heaven!  This charming, rambling c. 1800 farmhouse is built on the site of a 1652 Royal Land Grant.  Major expansion and renovation in 2010 includes a new kitchen and dining.  A spacious great room has a fireplace and wall of windows to take in the water views, and opens to a sweet pergola deck overlooking Milford Haven.  The deep, wrap-around porch has easy-care composite decking.  All the waterfront necessities are here – sandy shore, pier with power and water, boat lift, and views!  With five bedrooms, there’s room for family and guests, and the property has county approval for a B&B.

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.
