Sunset Beach ~ Belmont Creek ~ Rappahannock Views

Breathtaking sunset views will fill your evenings with delight from this broad, elevated point of land with 513' of shoreline, facing due south. Close enough to hear the waves crash and the seagulls cry, but protected from erosion by a sandbar and a meandering saltwater marsh, this lot lies just off the Rappahannock River on Belmont Creek. Enjoy the southeastern summer breezes off the Rappahannock from the "Bermuda High" that pumps ocean air up the coast during the warmer months. Enjoy crimson sunsets over the river with vermillion reflections in the creek and a small tidal pond to the southwest. You can hop in your canoe, or paddle out on your raft, to play on the sandbar at the mouth of the creek. However, if you really want to go out in a bigger boat, there's a full service marina just five minutes away on Greenvale Creek.

This level, wooded lot sits approximately 25 feet above sea level, well out of the flood zone, and has a beautiful mature forest along the shoreline where a steep bank leads down to the water. The building site is a lush, wildflower meadow and the entire septic system (tank and drainfield) for a 4-bedroom residence is already installed. The community water system is available for hook-up, making this lot is ready to build on. There's plenty of space for a garden or fruit orchard on the 1.65 acres of upland, and 1.3 acres of submerged land in front of the shoreline is included for a total of 2.95 acres. The sandbar at the mouth of Belmont Creek does limit the water depth of the channel out into the river, especially at low tide, but the creek itself has two branches for "aqueous adventures". Lot 20 is a part of Greenvale Farm, which has protective covenants and association fees of $200.00 per year.

Directions: From Lively, Virginia on Rt. 3, take Rt. 201 south and turn left onto Rt. 354. Turn right onto Greenvale Road, turn left onto Greenfield Road, go straight at the left bend and bear right on "On-Da-Creek Lane," then go to the very end of the road.

Offered at $209,000.
Sold 06/09/04 @ $209,000.

The view from the top of the bank, facing south.

A saltwater marsh adds textural interest to the mid-ground view and provides habitat for many bay species.

A look upstream on Belmont Creek, which offers calm, sheltered waters, perfect for exploring with small craft like canoes or kayaks.

A more "telephoto" look at the mouth of Belmont Creek.

There is a sandbar visible at low tide where the creek empties into the Rappahannock.

The sunsets are glorious.

There is a small tidal pond to the southwest that reflects the sky.
