Potomac Drive Contemporary …Breezy beach-style home on almost an acre overlooking the Potomac River where it meets the Chesapeake Bay. Views so amazing you can almost reach out and touch Point Lookout, Maryland from the waterside deck. Beautiful lot with mature trees and grass for lawn games and sitting around the firepit at night. Riprapped shoreline and a waterside landing with a dock that provides access for sandy bottom swimming and kayak launch. And, just for fun, a mini-pickleball court!!! Finish the day in the outdoor shower. Inside there are four bedrooms plus an office turned bunkroom for overflow sleeping, which could be used as a media room or den. Huge views from the upper level living room with hardwood flooring. The kitchen has new wood-look ceramic tile and opens to the dining room and breakfast area. Off the living room are two decks, one overlooking the water and the other a grilling porch. And, for the quintessential view, there is a ladder up to the roof deck. It’s all about the river and the bay here. Potomac Bay Estates Community pier and boat ramp on Presley Creek just steps away. And another community pier on the Potomac for enjoying sunrises!

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.
