The Ivison Lane Farmhouse is a circa 1900 ship captain’s home having all the charm of yesteryear with the amenities of today.  The home offers 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 3 fireplaces, and water views from most rooms.  Recent upgrades include new heat pumps, new 30-year roof, and new hot water heater.  With frontage on Winter Harbor, you’ll enjoy the views plus fishing, crabbing, kayaking, and just relaxing on 3 private acres. The property includes an in-ground pool, hot tub, and pool house.  A cottage belonging to Civil War Capt.

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.
