"Sunset Shores" ~ Rappahannock River ~ Waterfront Farm for Sale

Rare offering! This breezy and captivating waterfront farm offers a pastoral setting with a picturesque old red barn and corn crib, plus an artesian well. A private, gated road with cul-de-sac winds through field and forest with stunning southwestern views of the sparkling Rappahannock, one of the cleanest rivers on the east coast. The shoreline has been stablized with riprap and paired stone jetties, creating scalloped sand beaches. This farm would make an excellent family compound as it contains six, distinct, waterfront homesites, with subdivision approval. Plenty of space for gardening, with room for a small orchard or vinyard, or a happy home for your horses, the property offers a nice mix of gently rolling land with fields and mature forest. This 8 acre farm has 900 feet of shoreline along the Rappahannock River, which flows directly into the Chesapeake Bay. It offers nicely elevated views and faces southwest, a good direction for placing lots of glass overlooking the water. There is a boat ramp on the River for convenient launching of all your water toys, and underground utilities providing electric and telephone service.

This farm is located near Belle Isle State Park which sponsors live music concerts on the Rappahannock during the summer months, among other family activities. Also convenient to Lively, where you can pick up some fresh, local produce on the weekends. Additional acreage up to 25.569 acres, containing a partially fenced field, may also be available for purchase, in order to create a grand equestrian estate.
