34 Acres of Farm Land with Home Site For Sale in Essex County VA!

Perfect parcel to build the home of your dreams. Monster bucks and turkeys out your back door! Privacy with easy access to Route 17.

This magnificent 34 acre parcel is a perfect place to build a family home or have a small hunting tract to manage. The land has a great flow with the front 14 acres planted in corn and the back 20 acres of timber rolls down to a wetland creek – Elmwood Creek. The back Southern corner of the tract will hold enough water to kill a few wood ducks in the fall and the creek forms a travel route for all the deer in the area.

The ag field has a bit of a “L” shape and the dog leg back into the woods make a awesome spot for a stand or a strutting zone for a spring gobbler. There is no doubt that it is on the X.

This tract has easy access to RT 17 – but also offers privacy with a thin buffer of trees that shields the land for the sites and sounds of the road. There is a prior perc test for a 4-bedroom home on the property. As the crow flies, the Rappahannock River is just 1.7 miles away. Easy access to get your boat in the water for some fishing.

Port Royal is approximately 10 miles to the northwest. This is the intersection of Route 17 and HWY 301. It is about 17 miles to Tappahannock. 69 miles to Richmond and only 30 miles to Fredricksburg.

This property is zone A1 so this does open up many more possibilities – Here is a link the zoning for the county. https://library.municode.com/va/essex_county/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=CD_ORD_APXBZO_ARTXIIDIRE-1LIBUDI_S12.2PEUS

The county’s principal town, Tappahannock, dates back to a 17th century port settlement. Originally part of Old Rappahannock County, Essex County was formed in 1692 and named for either the English County or the Earl of Essex. http://www.essex-virginia.org/cms/One.aspx?portalId=62960&pageId=73410

Seasonal striped bass fishing opportunities exist throughout the tidal Rappahannock, however fall striper fishing is best in the lower river. https://www.dgif.virginia.gov/waterbody/rappahannock-river-tidal/

  • About the Agent

    • Charlie Britt

    • Charlie has over two decades of consultative sales experience and has built a sales career based on the old school idea of the power of relationships and that people count. These methods resulted in great success and translate to real estate.
      He was born and raised in Greensboro, NC with family in Pitt County and Warren County, NC. He graduated from Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia and moved to Richmond in 1993 to begin his career with Guardian Life Insurance Company in employee benefits consulting.
      Charlie lives in Richmond with his wonderful wife Jennifer and two boys - William (13) and Syd (11) and two dogs. He works hard to create great moments for his family from live UVA basketball games and time in the outdoors, to perhaps a boat trip to a quiet sandbar at the beach. Charlie loves to hunt waterfowl, fish for Virginia smallmouth bass or white marlin offshore. He is also passionate about helping the V Foundation for cancer research raise funds and providing leadership training for members of the Hampden-Sydney Basketball team through the HSC Roundball Club.
      Charlie loves the outdoors and the role of a Gamekeeper. His personal experience in farm and timber management is a great asset to all. This includes a family tree farm, using land for charitable gifts, managing agricultural land and duck impoundments in Hyde County, NC.
      Charlie has personally experienced the value of land ownership with his family. Charlie and Mossy Oak Properties of VA can help you if you are looking to sell or if you are looking to find a place to create memories of your own with your family. Give Charlie a call today.
