About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 full baths, just renovated, with Spectacular Front Great Room

Vickie Lynne and I renovated this property in 2012 to be where we want to and will live one day. Vickie Lynne's Mom and Dad bought this property originally in 1964. They sold it to her mother's relatives in 1971 when they bought the property next door 'Windward.' Vickie Lynne and I bought it back from her cousin Clint (and his wife Sylvia) in 2012 in bad disrepair. Every thought was given to detail. The hallway and the guest bedroom boast the original hardwood floors we found under the 3 layers of carpet. The Kitchen and the spectacular Front Great Room boast Australian Cypress floors. Both the Guest and Master bedroom host Queen Serta Comfort Cool Memory Foam Mattresses. The guest bath features a full bathtub and shower combination with the sink embedded in a piece of furniture that was a part of the property when we acquired it. The Master bedroom is well appointed. The Master bath festures a heated custom tile floor, on-demand unlimited hot water from an exterior mounted Rinnai hot water heater and a Kohler high-low flush toilet. The full Kitchen boasts Wellborn Cabinets by Noble Brothers of North Carolina. There is a full-sized gas GE Microwave over a full-sized GE gas stove /oven combination, a full-sized Whirlpool dishwasher & Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator / freezer. The textiles processing center is at the rear of the kitchen and hosts high-effiency Samsung front-loading washer and dryer with folding counter atop the pair. The bar that seperates the full kitchen from the dining area and can double as an ideal serving zone. The dining area hosts's Joe's mother's hutch, dining rooom table and chairs. The Anderson Windows frame the spectacular waterfront views fabulously. The family area of the spectacular Front Great Room is fitted with a Samsung TV with cable. It also has views of the Piankatank River. The brand new 12 x 20 foot deck (built in 2014) has its own bench and even better views of Ferry Creek and the Piankatank River. Vickie Lynne's creativity is every where. In order to preserve the 'old' front porch - the original original 'bead board' ceiling was planed down and used as wanscotting under the bar and along the back wall of the kitchen. Soft 'river' colors adorn the house with a queen sized beds in each bedroom. Both bathrooms feature custom tiled floors and are spacious. In 2016 we built a new pier and bulkhead / seawall. We also added a hardscape patio to the right of the deck which hosts a hardscape fire pit.
