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/
