Located on 0.7 acre with 150’ of waterfront, the property includes an asphalt paved driveway, 650’ deep well, aerobic septic system, large detached workshop with HVAC and attached storage shed, a large dock and covered boat house with deep water and electric boat lift. The newly updated 3 bedroom/2 bath home has original tongue and groove hardwood floors, large kitchen with dining area and an abundance of beautiful custom birch and alder cabinets, new granite countertops, new stainless appliances and fixtures, massive cedar lined closet, and storage closets even in the laundry and garage. The house has been freshly painted and has new carpet throughout. There are two large living areas and a formal dining room. Beautiful gas fireplace and a large antique boiler door that is a functional wood box with direct access to the garage for loading wood! New HVAC was installed three years ago. All appliances including the washer and dryer convey with the home. Front porch, multi-level decking, cedar siding, 50 year roof installed 15 years ago, and new insulated garage door.
The property is conveniently located a few miles south of the Norris Bridge on Rt. 3 which is the very last bridge that crosses the Rappahannock River before entering the Chesapeake Bay, so this home’s location provides easy access by car to Richmond on I-64, and Northern Virginia and the Tidewater area on US 17, by boat to the river and the bay, and there is a small airport conveniently located just a few miles away.

Welcome to Middlesex County, established in 1673, located off the Chesapeake Bay with the beautiful Rappahannock River, pristine Piankatank River (the cleanest river in the state), plus absolutely stunning, wide, deep creeks. Middlesex is a little over 200 square miles with 80 square miles of waterfront and quaint waterfront towns including Urbanna, Deltaville, and Saluda. Only an 1+ hours to Richmond/Newport News/Williamsburg and 2+ hours to Northern Virginia/Charlottesville.
Urbanna is the largest town in Middlesex and home to the Oyster Festival. For over 50 years, the town has hosted the Oyster Festival on the first weekend in November. Local and visitors alike come to the small town to sample the seafood, enjoy music, and see the crafts offered by local vendors. Urbanna is a “golf cart friendly” community with shops, restaurants, community pool and much more.
Deltaville, while not the largest town, is very well known for its deep anchorage, multiple marinas and amazing waterways and views. It was originally known as “Sandy Bottom” but renamed in 1909. In 2012 Deltaville was named ‘the Boating Capital of the Chesapeake Bay.’ Approximately 500-800 people live here full time and thousands in the summer. Full of shops, restaurants, and waterfront fun, Deltaville is truly a charming town.
With many deep ports off the rivers and bays, Middlesex is well known for its local crabs, oysters, fish, and more. Many locals are watermen who know the waterways better than anyone, and they have some great stories to tell. With so much beauty and serenity, Middlesex County is sure to warm your heart.
