The Tilden Lane Residence has ultimate wide views at the mouth of Taylors Creek and the Corrotoman River.  The private deep water pier has 5.5-6′ MLW, a large boat lift, and a floating dock to make easy access for water toys, kayaks and more.  The 600′ of shoreline is completely rip rapped, and this property is located outside of the flood zone and has easy steps from the pier to the home.  This area has some of the best Chesapeake Bay blue crabs that can be caught right at the pier, or grow your own oysters!  Great proximity to fishing and boating located near the Rappahannock River.

Come relax or entertain on the wrap-around deck . . . you’ll fall in love with these sunsets!  The 1965 cottage was remodeled in 2006/2007 by the current owners and most every room has a fabulous water view.  The Living Room has a set of windows overlooking the waterfront, a fireplace with gas log insert, hardwood floors, and built-in cabinetry.  The formal Dining Room is centered between the Living Room, Family Room, and Kitchen with gorgeous views from the bow window.  The Family Room offers two sides of sliding glass doors and windows with the best wide views, hardwood floors, and a tray ceiling.  The Kitchen is open to the Family Room and features lovely granite countertops, dining bar, Wolf gas cooktop with hood, wall oven, refrigerator and a built-in wine fridge.  The Master Suite was a fabulous addition by the owners with wide views, private deck, tray ceiling, and luxurious waterside bathroom having a double sink granite vanity, walk-in shower, and a Jacuzzi tub.  There is a waterfront guest room with French doors leading to the patio, a second guest room, and an updated guest bathroom that even has a waterfront view.  The owners built a wonderful raised-bed Organic Garden plus a detached storage shed.  There is no formal homeowners association for the six owners that live on this street, but they do share maintenance costs for the gravel road.  This home is in a great location only minutes from the towns of White Stone, Kilmarnock, or Irvington.  Easy commute to the cities with an hour+ to Richmond, Williamsburg, or Newport News and average two hours+ to Charlottesville, Northern Virginia, or Virginia Beach.
