Lot 27 ~ Riverwood ~ Eastern Branch, Corrotoman River

Beautiful views, mature woods, nice elevation and interesting topography grace this beautiful 1.12-acre waterfront lot on the Eastern Branch of the Corrotoman River, with a water depth of 4 to 4.5 feet at Mean Low Water. Your waterfront backyard includes a nicely elevated South-facing point, with the shoreline curving back in on the upstream side where there is a lush tidal marsh on the Eastern boundary. The downstream views look West for sunsets reflecting on the water.

Lot 27 features a nicely wooded south-facing point that enjoys long downstream views to the West with pretty views across the river to the South, and long upstream views to the East. Once the underbrush is cleared out, there will be panoramic views looking both upstream and down. This site also catches nice breezes off the river. There are lots of native Mountain Laurel shrubs and Holly trees, plus some large hardwoods and pines, with level to steeply sloping topography that is perfect for a home with a walk-out Lower Level. An approved Site Plan enables you to build just 75 feet from the water to maximize these views. The hills and valleys and well-drained sandy soils in Riverwood are perfectly suited to basements, and most of the waterfront homes in this community feature bonus finished living space in their walk-out lower levels.

Most of the infrastructure for building a home is already installed on this lot. At the end of Riverwood Drive there is an established, shared driveway off the cul-de-sac that is used for access by three lots, Numbers 26, 27, and 28. Beyond this shared drive, the private driveway for Lot 27 has been cleared of trees and has a layer of gravel, and is flanked by decorative timber posts with a chain. There is a 3-bedroom conventional septic system (distribution box and drain field) already installed on the lot, to the left of the driveway near the entrance, that has now grown up in young loblolly pine trees. Plus there is an artesian well located on Lot 26 that is shared between Lots 26 and 27. The well is near the entrance of the driveway into Lot 26, and is situated beside a parking area, with a formal Well-Maintenance Agreement recorded at Lancaster Court House.

Located in a covenanted community that is close to the town of Kilmarnock, Lot 27 at Riverwood includes a community tennis court and a boat ramp. The gently curving, paved roads have been taken into the state road system, keeping the association fees to a minimum ($100.00 per year), and creating a great neighborhood for walking or cycling. The Eastern Branch flows into the main body of the Corrotoman River, which then flows into the Rappahannock River that leads directly to the Bay, about 14 nautical miles away.

The downstream, western view of the Eastern Branch. Note the stick with the surveyor's tape, near the middle of the photo that marks the boundary line. Lot 27 is to the left of this marker and continues on out to the tip of the point. Lot 28 lies to the right of this marker and has not been built on yet.

Looking South, directly across the Eastern Branch from the top of the hill.

Looking across and slighly upstream, you get a hint of the long views to the East. There is a very large oak tree on the hillside with a new path to the shoreline going down the hill just to the right of it.

Looking upstream from the shoreline shows the tidal marsh at the shore along the eastern sideline.
