"Sunset Point" ~ Western Branch of the Corrotoman River

This is a unique offering of a 225 acre, private, waterfront, peninsula with broad stair-step topography overlooking the pristine upper reaches of the Western Branch of the Corrotoman River. This large estate offers 3/4 of a mile of shoreline and 3-4 feet of depth at Mean Low Water. There are 55 acres of open farmland, with two abandoned homesteads, and 170 acres of timbered forest land. The waterfront has been cleared of underbrush revealing spectacular, sparkling views. There is an existing gravel road that winds down the peninsula to the very last point looking straight downstream.

There is a 50' right of way to Route 3 near Lancaster Court House, which can be used for future development. This property has stunning development potential as there are water views from several levels as you descend from the ridge top and approach the river front, allowing for the possibility of many water view homesites with community access to the river.

The Corrotoman is a tidal river that flows into the Rappahannock River and then into the Chesapeake Bay. It is one of the purest rivers on the east coast with no heavy industries and no cities along its watershed, and boasts several bald eagle nesting sites.

Offered at 2.5 million dollars

First glimpse of the Corrotoman.

There are several abandoned homesteads on the property with old fence lines.

This view is looking upstream towards the headwaters of the Western Branch.

A picturesque country road winds along the shoreline.

A few Yuccas remain from the plantings around one of the old houses. There are also several pecan trees and the ground is littered with nut shells.

Looking back north (landward) from the last waterfront point. The Western Branch shoreline is on the left. One of the old houses is catching the afternoon sun.
