“Sandy Creek” is located in historic Gloucester and situated on 5.4 acres. This country estate features a show-stopping custom brick home with a cozy lodge feel. The property is beautifully landscaped with a patio, in-ground pool, Tiki bar, and outdoor stone fireplace.  Inside you’ll find a spacious living room with fireplace, sunroom, gym, and pub/game room.  The huge Chef’s kitchen is beautifully appointed with a granite island, cherry cabinets, plus the popular Vulcan stove. There are five bedrooms, including a two-bedroom guest suite with kitchen and bath that has been a successful Airbnb rental (or would make an ideal in-law suite). For the entrepreneur at heart, the property also includes “Sandy Creek Pet Resort“, a lucrative pet boarding/grooming facility voted “Best in Virginia” for 6 straight years. Outbuildings include a circa 1790 barn, and there’s a shagbark hickory tree given to the original owner by Thomas Jefferson.  Considering a lifestyle change to a peaceful country setting?  This is it!  Conveniently located in Gloucester near Williamsburg and Richmond.
