Deep well, large septic (installed for restaurant operations in 1981). No homeowners' assocation. Low Density Rural zoning allows a wide range of income-generating activities.

The House

Handicap-accessible entrance ramp. Master bedroom on ground floor with north-facing sunroom, ensuite bathroom with charming arched window. 4 bedrooms total plus an office being used as a bedroom, all with windows on two sides. Three and a half baths (two bathrooms with shower, one with bathtub). Living room with gas fireplace and north exit to patio, formal dining room with view of back garden, large kitchen (could qualify as commercial kitchen with few modifications), ground floor laundry room with exit to the south, large screened porch on the western side, half basement with sump pump and rear exit.

Central air, heat pump with gas furnace. Electric water heater. Window air conditioners in kitchen and laundry room. Ceiling fans in dining room and kitchen, as well as on screened porch. Supplemental propane heater in dining room.

The Grounds

Grounds have countless mature trees. Five magnolias line up on the east side of the house. English and American boxwood are numerous. Hackberry, pecan, locust, chokecherry support wildlife. Forsythia, lilacs, peonies, iris are planted in great number, with many other scented and flowering plants.

The blue circle indicates the entrance from the highway. The house is set far back from the road, giving peace and privacy. Located 3 miles before Deltaville and within about 5 miles of most all area marinas. There are rotating local farmers' market on Saturday mornings, and a shop across the Rappahannock in White Stone selling local organic and sustainably-produced farm products.

Mid-peninsula situation has property completely out of the flood zones. See last image below. You can keep a boat ten minutes (five miles) away at any of several good, reasonable local marinas, and have no shoreline, flooding, or dock issues of your own, be it maintenance or insurance.
