A rustic country getaway! This property includes 20 acres of forest, cleared areas, and marshlands . . . just the right spot for nature lovers or a hunting and fishing lodge. There is long water frontage along Garden Creek which goes out to Winter Harbor and the Chesapeake Bay. The circa 1900 farmhouse does not currently have plumbing or electrical wiring. The rooms are heated by woodstoves and a wood burning fireplace. A septic system was installed on the property years ago, but was not connected (would need Health Department inspection). The home is being sold AS IS and awaits your restoration! The 83 acre Bethel Beach Nature Preserve on the Chesapeake Bay is less than 2 miles away.

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.
