Historic Homes on the Chesapeake Bay

There's something special about a historic waterfront home in the Chesapeake Bay area of Virginia. Most waterfront homeowners of yesteryear had a significant reason to be there. They either worked on the waterfront or they had some 'business' connection to it. Either way, the waters edge served an important role. When visiting a historic home on the bay you can just feel the energy and hustle & bustle of days past. Today it is much more serene, the wildlife flourishes and sailboats line the horizon. Of course the watermen still work the waters for blue crab, oysters and the like but there is a peaceful mix of work and play. The Chesapeake Bay and river historic waterfront homes listed above are located on the Middle Peninsula of Virginia which borders the lower Chesapeake Bay, the Mobjack Bay and their tributaries. All are offered by Diana Burton of Isabell K. Horsley Real Estate Ltd. Diana lists property from the York River to the Rappahannock River and the Northern Neck of Virginia. Information herein is deemed accurate but not guaranteed. Please call Diana Burton for complete details at (804)725-8220.
