Virginia Waterfront Homes for Sale


The history of America is closely tied to that of Virginia, particularly during the Colonial period, Jamestown, founded in 1607, was the first permanent English settlement in North America and slavery was introduced there in 1619. The state is called the “Mother of Presidents” because eight U.S. presidents were born there.

The climate of Virginia becomes increasingly warmer and more humid farther south and east. Seasonal extremes vary from average lows of 26 °F (−3 °C) in January to average highs of 86 °F (30 °C) in July. The Atlantic ocean has a strong effect on eastern and southeastern coastal areas of the State.

Virginia is divided into 95 counties and 39 independent cities, which both operate the same way since independent cities are considered to be county-equivalent. This method of treating cities and counties equally is unique to Virginia.

Fairfax County is the most populous locality in Virginia, with over one million residents. Neighboring Loudon County is both the fastest-growing county in Virginia and has the highest median household income ($114,204) in the USA as of 2010.  Virginia's economy is balanced, with diverse sources of income, including government and military, farming, and business. Virginia has 4.1 million civilian workers, and one-third of the jobs are in the service sector. The unemployment rate was 6.3% as of April 2011. Technology became the state's highest-grossing export in 2006, surpassing its traditional top exports of coal and tobacco combined.

Agriculture occupies 24% of the land in Virginia. As of 2007, about 357,000 Virginian jobs were in agriculture, with over 47,000 farms, averaging 171 acres (0.27 sq. mi.; 0.69 km2), in a total farmland area of 8.1 million acres (12,656 sq. mi.; 32,780 km2).

Providing horsepower in the fields and transportation for goods and people, horses were the backbone of the first Virginia Colonies. Today, the role of horses has changed dramatically, yet horses are still a vital economic factor. Some 700 equine events are held in Virginia each year, attracting over 800,000 participants and spectators who spend more than $167 million at these events. The average Virginia horse owner spends $2,969 per horse yearly. Horse owners spend $505 million in annual expenses and support approximately 20,000 jobs statewide.

You can catch your own crabs, fish until your hearts content, raise your own oysters with the 8 cages(the cages convey) that hold approx 1 bushel of oysters and yes, even shrimp!! The front yard is planted in 2400 sq ft of clover......why clover? It doesn't require fertilizer and it grows so thick that there are very few weeds and the yard has a Rain Bird Sprinkler System! 2 Owned Propane tanks (so you can get propane from whatever vendor you choose)-a 100 gallon tank for the gas logs and a 300 gallon tank for the whole house generator! The gazebo, aka, "Crab Shack" is positioned just perfectly for entertaining and "Cracking" those crabs that you yourself caught! And wait there is more.......a workshop that can be just that or a craft room or artists studio, your basic shed for storage and then, an oversized 3 Bay Garage and boat storage space! The only other thing that you could possibly want, would be privacy ........and yes.....there is definitely PRIVACY, all while being convenient to hardware stores and lumber yard (within 10 min), auto repair and the Historic town of Reedville (within 5 min), hospital and Dr's offices (25 min) and of course the Fire Dept (5 min)! This is a must see! Don't miss it!
