Waterfront views, a sandy beach, natural beauty and refreshing privacy are part of the allure of this James River retreat with 591 feet of shoreline. Built in 1947 and lovingly maintained, you sense upon entering the house a long-time relationship to its surroundings. Generations have dined and slumbered in rooms paneled in mellow pine or padded their sandy feet across old oak floors. Situated on 5.4 acres, the 1,567 SF single-story house has 3 bedrooms (2 with corner views), 1.5 baths, an eat-in kitchen, as well as a wide breezeway connecting the home to a spacious attached garage (perfect for boat storage). From the circular drive you enter the house from the front porch, cleverly accented with a substantial built-in fireplace. Step into the paneled Great Room which has a FP at one end and glass doors at the other, which open on to a deck with dramatic views of the James. The kitchen with granite and stainless steel- opens to the breezeway and has a window overlooking the front terrace, perfect for grilling. An unfinished basement is ideal for exercise room, storage, or workshop. Near Williamsburg, 50 mins from Richmond airport, 20 mins to the Jamestown Ferry.
