Land Description

5.5 Acres of Land for Sale in Virginia with Mature Trees, Power & Paved Road Frontage just minutes from the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay.

Vir-Mar Beach, Buzzard's Point Marina, the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay are just a few minutes from the Property.

You will find Medical Care, Grocery Stores, Walmarts, Fuel & Supplies in multiple small towns within less than 20 miles away.

Nestled among the scenic inlets of the Chesapeake Bay and a stone's throw from the Potomac River, this wooded 5.59 Acre property in Northumberland County, Virginia, is the perfect size for a farm, homestead, or quiet country living. There is 450 feet of road frontage along the west boundary on Oyster Way.

These riverine plain forests covering the Northern Neck are dotted with mature silver maples, sycamores, pines, and ash trees, offering year-round color and coverage, providing shade, wind and flood barriers, and soil protection.

Interspersed woodlands and farms add more beauty and privacy between the spacious tracts. Plus, the freedom to create and build is an added benefit of rural living. Some neighbors cultivate their land while others leave it mostly untouched for tree-shaded homesteads. Those with river access have docks for fishing, relaxing, and boat docking.

Hunting, Fishing, & Wildlife

East Virginia's stunning landscape hosts incredible biodiversity among the forests, rivers, and bay, and this property showcases some of the best.

The American river otter is native to this area, and they're often spotted playing and foraging along the banks, especially at dawn or dusk.

Wildlife enthusiasts and hunters can be on the lookout for black bears, bobcats, white-tail deer, mountain lions, coyotes, red foxes, and beavers.

Meanwhile, bright-colored woodpeckers, sharp-eyed ospreys, and majestic bald and golden eagles make their homes among the trees.

Over 118 fish species thrive in the Potomac and nearby creeks, making it a prime destination for anglers. Massive catfish, sturgeon, and bull sharks are among the most unique species. Trophy small and largemouth bass are also a big freshwater hit.

These necks of the Chesapeake Bay are brackish, and it's not uncommon to spot pods of bottlenose dolphins hunting for fish and crustaceans.

Going further out, Chesapeake Bay is known for spectacular sightings of migrating humpback whales and the rare manatee. Depending on the season, anglers can fish for saltwater species such as flounder, striped bass, speckled trout, drum, redfish, Spanish mackerel, and more.

Outdoor Adventure

With access to the mountains, forests, streams, and bay, Virginia is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. The state boasts 42 state parks and 22 national parks. There's a new adventure at every turn.

Head to Bush Mill Stream Natural Area Preserve, where the Great Wicomico River's freshwater meets the salty bay. Waterfowl of all kinds take refuge here. The marshes and mud plains are ideal for catching glimpses of great blue herons, and you can't beat kayaking the waterways beneath the towering oaks and blooming mountain laurel.

Or you can relax along the 7-mile shoreline of Belle Isle State Park in Lancaster, VA. The park offers a variety of recreational activities, from fishing and kayaking to hiking and bird watching. The beach area is perfect for swimming and sunbathing, and there are plenty of picnic areas and pavilions for enjoying a day with family and friends. The Bel Air area, historic mansion, and guest house are available for meetings, weddings, and events, and it's a great photo location, too.

This gorgeous wooded property along Virginia's Northern Neck is too good to pass up. With a prime spot on the Chesapeake Bay peninsula between the Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers, there's no comparison for beauty, adventure, and laid-back living. Place a deposit today to make it yours.
