The storied Eastern Shore has long been a popular destination for eager beach-goers in need of a bit of R&R. Though its tri-state beachfront (Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia all claim land on the Shore) is sprinkled with major beach towns, sometimes the smaller ones have the best coastal atmosphere—and the best deals for those looking to make a waterfront property purchase. Enter this dreamy home in Cape Charles, Virginia.
Perched near the southern tip of the Delmarva Peninsula, in the Bayside Village neighborhood of the Bay Creek community, this Eastern Shore escape (with its double-gallery porch that overlooks the bay) seems like the perfect place to host a crowd by the water for days of beach-going, shopping, great dining, and fishing.
Called the Littleton Tazewell House, after the influential Virginia statesman, this property is decorated classically, with thick white trim and a brick fireplace. The house boasts three bedrooms and four and a half baths, with a bonus third-floor space that can be converted into a fourth bedroom, an office, or an additional entertaining area.
The kitchen reflects the exterior’s mix of classic and contemporary: Vintage-style oven, hood, and lanterns ground the room, while tall white cabinets and contrasting countertops modernize it. The open space is perfect for entertaining, and its water-facing windows mean you’re never missing out on the view.
With 4,363 square feet and a half-acre waterfront plot—and a price tag of $2,426,000—the Littleton Tazewell house is a Chesapeake Bay dream. Take a look at the full listing here.
