‘Island Point Estate’ is rich in history and beauty.  The estate, formerly known as Keen’s Wharf, is situated on 18 acres and was once a regular stop for the steamer West Shore.  The lovely farmhouse is circa 1850, and the land surveys date back to 1654.  The property could make a fabulous family compound or private getaway.  Absolutely beautiful grounds, new rip rap in 2014, pier with deep water.  The home has been well maintained, with a new roof in 2011, new heat pumps and second floor gas furnace in 2012.  Custom salt water heated pool and hot tub overlooking the waterfront.  A rare find!

Northumberland County

Life moves at a slower pace in Northumberland County, which lies on the Chesapeake Bay and is just across the Potomac River from Maryland. The abundance of waterways, laid-back lifestyle, and temperate climate have made it one of Virginia’s leading retirement and vacation communities. Northumberland comprises 286 square miles, with 94 square miles of water, and a population of approximately 12,400. At the time of English settlement around 1635, the area was inhabited by the Native American Wicomico and Chickacoan tribes. In 1648, this “Mother County of the Northern Neck” was organized and named after County Northumberland, England.
