On the Ware River

Wareham Estate - Just minutes away from quaint Gloucester, Wareham Estate, is an impeccably designed residence with roots in 18th century American architecture. Designed by Floyd E. Johnson, the renowned restoration architect at Monticello, no stone was left unturned in his effort to replicate this style at Wareham, a breathtaking 60-acre waterfront estate two years in the making. No expense was spared, utilizing notable landscape architects and interior designers from Charlottesville and the UK. Idyllic waterfront tranquility awaits, capturing all the Chesapeake Bay has to offer — unencumbered waterfront views of the Ware River and Mobjack Bay and a pier and boat lift with slip for docking even the largest sail boat or motor yacht. It's the ideal waterfront residence rich with Virginia charm and grace.
