"Shore Thing" ~ Potomac River ~ White Sand Harbour

This remodelled home with two bedrooms, one and a half baths, plus an outdoor shower, offers the perfect Bay get-away. Situated on a nicely elevated lot, out of the flood-zone, with 100-feet of riprapped shoreline, it boasts wide, knock-your-socks-off views across the mouth of the Potomac to the distant shores of Maryland, and east out into the ship's channel in the Chesapeake Bay. There is a gently sloped backyard lawn down to the edge of the riprapped and bulkheaded shoreline with a waterfront Gazebo and wooden swing for enjoying your morning coffee or afternoon tea.

This 1978 home has been freshly painted inside and out in coastal colors that are bright and cheerful. A new front entry door was installed, plus new gutters and vinyl soffit all the way around the roofline for easy exterior maintenance. A roomy deck wraps around the side and back of the house to bridge the interior and exterior spaces.

On the inside, the Great Room features a vaulted ceiling with a soaring cupola skylight and large windows wrapping around the waterside to capture the broad water views, with a carpeted floor and wood-plank wainscoting. The all new Kitchen also enjoys the broad waterviews and boasts all new appliances, including a propane gas range. There is also a walk-in pantry that hosts a new stacked laundry unit and the hot-water heater. Off the hallway there is a new Powder Room and an all-new full Bath, both with new ceramic tile flooring, and all new fixtures. The two bedrooms flank the entry foyer, giving each some separation for an extra measure of privacy.

The address of this cottage is 294 Fleet Road, Heathsville, Virginia, 22473. The house to the right of this home owns two lots and has a septic system installed on the adjacent lot, so it will not be built on, and it provides a nice green space to separate the two homes. Along the left side this lot has a thick hedge of evergreen trees for privacy. This home is situated on Lot 18 in White Sand Harbour subdivision and is just a few doors down from the community beach on the Potomac shoreline, which has a series of off-shore breakwaters for protection. This long, white sand beach lies between Lowe's Pond and the River and continues down to a meandering channel that leads into Cubitt Creek, creating a special place for young toddlers to splash around in the gentle waters of the inlet.

The community also owns 27-acre Lowe's Pond, which is tidal but is tempered by it's freshwater flow and supports large mouth bass. There is a boat ramp for launching non-fossil-fuel boats into the pond on White Sand Harbor Drive. Additionally, there is a ramp for launching boats into Cubitt Creek, that is located on Cubitt Court. Cubitt Creek is a large tidal creek with a shallow sandbar at it's mouth into the Potomac River, so you can boat within the creek, but do not have boating access to the Potomac. There are several marinas nearby where you can keep a boat in a slip, or launch a trailered vessel into the Bay, if desired. This community also has two fenced tennis courts, and an RV campground with a brand new bath house. Property Owners Association fees are $140.00 a year.

The front porch is deck-style to match the wrap-around decking along the side and back of the house.

The endless views are truly awe-inspiring. The gazebo offers an enchanted setting for watching the moon rise over the Bay.

The community beach is only a block away. It's 1400 ± feet long and is part of a 5-acre park with off shore breakwaters..

Your four-legged friends will especially enjoy a walk on the beach.

This house's shoreline has a combination of bulkhead and riprap for protection.

The wide views look across the Potomac to Maryland. This backyard swing conveys with the house.

The roomy wrap around deck adds outdoor living space. An outdoor shower to the left of the deck, beneath the kitchen window, offers a refreshing change of pace.

Imagine starting your weekend with breakfast on the deck.
