Great wooded hunting and recreational tract on the head waters of Mill Creek and only minutes to the Chesapeake Bay!
Here is a great opportunity for a 33-acre waterfront tract that is actually 2 tracts in the same offering. 3 BR septic system already in place for one home site and a certification letter on the other. Both home sites are already cleared and will make a beautiful place for your custom home positioned to look out into the vast expanse of the Bay. Both sites still have a select amount of tall mature trees adding just the right amount of character to your home sites. Great for a family compound! If you are not ready to build yet, it will still make a great recreational property and weekend getaway. Trails, tall timber, brush, surrounded by croplands & lowlands make it a great property for deer hunting. Set right on the headwaters of Mill Creek, this property gives you the opportunity to build your own pier and then you are only minutes to the mouth of the York River and the Chesapeake Bay. That’s right, great fishing too! How about just a leisurely day on the Bay or maybe just sitting on the porch overlooking the grass lands and flowing creek waters only yards from your front door. Crown Point Marina is only minutes from this property allowing you to put your boat over or even rent a slip if you wish. Survey and wetland delineation study available with Army Corps approval for accuracy showing acceptable building locations. Just waiting on you and your house plans, tree stands, and boat.
Gloucester County is rich in history and farmland. Its fishing industry is important to the state as well. It has a retail center located around the main street area of the county seat. Gloucester County and adjacent York County are linked by the George P. Coleman Memorial Bridge, a toll facility across the York River carrying U.S. Route 17 to the Virginia Peninsula area. Gloucester County is self-nicknamed the “Daffodil Capital of the World”; it hosts an annual daffodil festival, parade and flower show. During the 17th and 18th centuries, Gloucester was developed as a major tobacco-producing area; this was the chief commodity crop and the basis of the wealth of major planters. Many of the old plantation houses and private estates have been preserved in good condition. These establishments are periodically open to public visitation during Historic Garden Week. Examples of colonial architecture are the Episcopal churches of Ware (1690) and Abingdon (1755), where Presidents Washington and Jefferson worshiped. Some early colonial buildings at the county seat on Courthouse Green continue to be used for public purposes.
During the 17th century, the tip of land protruding into the York River was named Tyndall’s Point by Robert Tyndall, mapmaker for Captain John Smith. In 1667, colonists built fortifications there, at what was then called Gloucester Point. These defenses were rebuilt and strengthened many times from the colonial period through the American Civil War. This site is also known for the “Second Surrender” by General Charles Lord Cornwallis to General George Washington at Yorktown. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gloucester_County,_Virginia )
