‘Windhover’ is a beautiful historic residence that is close to the village of Mathews on a desirable quiet street. An elegant late 19th century classic Georgian home, set on scenic park-like grounds with mature trees and landscaping. With close to 1600′ of water frontage at the junction of the beloved East River and Put-In creek, the 9 acre estate includes anchorage featured in Chesapeake Bay cruising guides. There is 2-4′ MLW at the pier with the ability to reach 4-6′ MLW. Windhover has a real Southern atmosphere and charm with 1250 sq. ft. of porches on 3 sides including the waterfront screened porch of 546 sq. ft. The home has been wonderfully restored with modern upgrades yet decorated preserving historic features such as the heart pine floors, spacious center hallways, stairs with walnut banisters, original shutters, antique fixtures, high ceilings and abundant windows on all sides.

Mathews County

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.
