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.
