Step back in time with this historic waterfront home, Main Street Colonial.  Located on Cockrell Creek just off the Chesapeake Bay.  This home has 5′ MLW at the 3-slip pier with oversized two slips ready for either to have a boat lift plus an easy platform for kayaking.  Cockrell Creek is a deep creek, great for relaxing cruises, best fishing just off the bay, catch  crabs at your pier, or grow your own oysters!

This is one of the oldest residences on Reedville’s Main Street, which is lined with beautiful Victorian and Colonial style homes.  The home was built by the Sea Captain Gamalian Robinson and tastefully restored in 1936 by noted Richmond architect, Lyle Swiger.  This charming home features wide plank wood flooring, wood paneling, antique door knobs, while having the modern touches of the updated kitchen done in 2019 and bathrooms done with period tile work.  A beautiful brick walkway leads you to the front door and into the foyer that enters the Living Room to the right or the Kitchen to the left.  The large Living Room has beautiful paneled walls, waterfront views, and an oversized brick fireplace with gas logs.  The updated Kitchen has tile floors, wood and quartz countertops, farmhouse sink, breakfast nook, and new stainless steel appliances.  There is a waterfront formal dining room with lovely moldings.  The first floor is complete with a Master Suite having a private bathroom.  Upstairs has two bedrooms sharing a Jack and Jill bathroom.  There is a basement with a washer and dryer plus other mechanical needs of HVAC and a water heater.  The electric service has been updated with 200 amps and a new HVAC unit done in 2018.  The property also includes two detached outbuildings that provide a grandfathered footprint for future use near the water (guest house, addition, pool, or more.)

The downtown of Reedville is very charming, surrounded by beautiful waterfront on Cockrell Creek and offers unique fun.  There are two waterfront restaurants plus an ice cream parlor. The great Fisherman’s Museum located on the creek is full of knowledge on the local industry and town, plus has Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny come arrive by Skipjack in these annual ceremonies.  And you don’t want to miss a spectacular 4th of July here!  The day starts with a 5K run which leads into the best parade in the region which can be viewed from your roadside porch.  The day closes with a fireworks show over the waterside of Cockrell Creek.  Don’t miss the Christmas parade!  Come step back into yesteryear, kids running around town, walks down the street, and relaxing creek cruises!  This is a great lifestyle!

Northumberland County

Northumberland County 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.  Northumberland is home to some charming towns.  The town of Reedville is rich in maritime history and home to the Chesapeake Bay Menhaden Fleet.  There is abundant shopping and dining in the town of Kilmarnock, which stretches from the edge of Northumberland into Lancaster County.  Located just outside of Kilmarnock in Northumberland County is Indian Creek Yacht & Country Club with an 18-hole golf course, social activities, yacht club, indoor/outdoor tennis and more (membership required).  Northumberland’s greatest asset is its waterfront, with miles of bay and river frontage, fishing charters and tournaments, cruises to Tangier, and ideal areas for water sports, kayaking, and taking in the sights and sounds of nature. Northumberland/Lancaster is also home to active local chapters of the Audobon Society, Master Naturalists, Master Gardeners, and Native Plant Society.

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.  The county seat is Heathsville, with its historic district, Colonial-era Hughlett’s Tavern.   For some delightful places to visit, check out Good Luck Cellars and Ditchley Cider Works.

Come to Northumberland… a great place to visit, a great place to call home.
