"River Cottage" ~ Rappahannock & Corrotoman Rivers ~ Majestic Site ~ 204 Orchard Point Dr, Weems, VA 22576

This quintessential River Cottage occupies one of the finest sites on the Rappahannock River at its confluence with the Corrotoman. Wide Southern views provide dramatic moon rises to the southeast and sunsets to the southwest, and a steady breeze off the "Bermuda High." The shaded yard has been sprinkled with white beach sand to give the property a tropical island atmosphere.

The existing cottage offers a grandfathered footprint within the 100' RPA setback line for dramatic views of the river. It has pine floors and classic lines for one-floor living and features a Living Room with wood-burning fireplace and new French Doors opening to the waterfront. A galley-stlye Kitchen and petite Foyer are on the front of the house. Through the Kitchen and Living Room on the right is a spacious Sun Room with wrap around windows. From the Foyer a Hallway leads left to a small bedroom on the right, a full bathroom on the left, a utility closet on the left, and large bedroom/office at the end of the hall with built-in bookshelves and an outside entry. This room also has a walk-in closet which houses the clothes washer & dryer. This cottage has been updated with central air and has an oil furnace and vinyl siding.

A few steps out the front door take you to the detached Studio which also has a wood-burning hearth and pine floors in a large open room, plus a full Bath. The studio has a wall air conditioner unit.

Offering a close-in location, near the village of Weems and the towns of Kilmarnock, Irvington, and White Stone, this River Cottage is convenient to the YMCA gym and local medical facilities, and fronts on the broad Rappahannock and Corrotoman Rivers.

Exclusively offered for $569,000.

The view looking towards the mouth of the Rappahannock River shows the bridge at White Stone in the distance.

Seeing the cottage from the river, it is barely visible beneath the canopy of the mature woods. The shoreline has a toe of riprap to protect against erosion. The mouth of the Corrotoman River is to the left.

It's a magical day when the dolphins swim by.

This is the private entry door into the large bedroom/office with bookshelves. The detached Studio is over to the right. The yard has been sprinkled with white beach sand.


There are new French Doors on the water side of the Living Room. A fabulous Sun Room, to the left, has 3 walls of windows with sweeping water views.
