This house is in a natural setting on a private road at the end of a half mile drive through an old growth forest. It is a low maintenance design for both house and landscaping. Situated adjacent to the Savage Neck Dunes nature preserve with only one other resident for over 1 mile this home affords privacy like no other. The estate sits on 3 acres which front on the water with a deeded private beach and comes with an undivided common interest in 70 acres of wooded and tillable land, which means the privacy will remain protected.

Stunning, all cherry custom shelving with 32 led lights for accenting art and decorations. The kitchen is designed for people who love to cook and has a very large peninsula as well as a workstation/island. Kitchen cabinetry extends into the 31 x 7 pantry/mechanical/laundry room. plenty of closets and storage and good sized rooms.

Another 3 acre parcel immediately adjacent and attached to this parcel is available should someone want an additional buffer or it could be used for investment because well and septic are already in place.

I am preparing for retirement and have purchased a 2 bedroom condo in Virginia Beach so some of the furniture and art is available for anyone looking for a leisure home that doesnt require full furnishing.

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like ForSaleByOwner.com to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
  • Who Should I notify about fraud or scam attempts?
