"Bridge Cove" ~ Carters Creek ~ Town of Irvington

This hillside homesite is tucked away down a private drive, yet is within easy walking or biking distance of all the town of Irvington activites. Now the town has been approved for golf cart use as well, giving you another great option for getting around! Consisting of 1.22 wooded acres, this lot has 148 ± feet of shoreline on Chase Cove of Carters Creek, (also known as Bridge Cove). There is a pier permit to a water depth of 2.5 ± feet, fine for a kayak, canoe, or skiff. This lot has a large level section on top of the hill, with a rolling slope down to the water in the front, and a slope down to an old road bed along the left-hand sideline as you face the water. The slope to the left provides a good opportunity for adding a walk-out lower-level for some econimical additional square footage. There is an abandoned two-story frame farm house situated on the hilltop that is in disrepair and conveyed "as is".

The Town of Irvington offers a summertime Farmer's Market, concerts on the green, playground, tennis court, and baseball field. Plus Irvington is home to the Steamboat Museum, the Tides Inn Resort with waterside dining, the Rappahannock River Yacht Club, shops, coffee bar, Nate's Trick Dog restaurant and White Fences Vinyard. Several marinas, boat ramps and golf courses are nearby, too. Golf carts are a favored form of transportation within the town limits.

There is a town water system available for hook-up. A Certification Leter for a remote drainfield site for a 3-bedroom house utilizes an engineered septic system. A road maintenance agreement, shared with one adjacent property, covers the gravel driveway that runs from King Carter Drive across two roadfront parcels, and across this lot to the waterfront house next door. This lot is priced below the county's assessed value!

Exclusively Offered for $279,000
