RIVER'S EDGE, HISTORIC 1780'S COTTAGE ON THE NORTH RIVER, GLOUCESTER, VA

THIS IS A CHARMING AND ROMANTIC COTTAGE, CREATED FROM THE FORMER WAREHOUSE OF HISTORIC WAVERLEY PLANTATION, AND STEEPED IN HISTORY. MOREOVER, THE HUGE CYLINDRICAL BRICK PIT OF THE ORIGINAL ICE-HOUSE SURVIVES INTACT IN A HIGH MOUND, WHICH WOULD MAKE THE PERFECT SITE FOR A GAZEBO OVERLOOKING THE RIVER.

THE MAIN PART OF THE 1780'S STRUCTURE STILL REMAINS WITH HUGE BEAMS, FIRE PLACE, OLD DOORS, AND LOVELY WATERFRONT SCREENED PORCH. AT A LATER STAGE A KITCHEN, PANTRY, EXTRA BATHROOMS WERE ADDED.
THE HOUSE NEEDS SOME UPGRADES, BUT IT IS PERFECTLY LIVEABLE, HOWEVER, WITH A THOUGHTFUL UPGRADE, ITS ANTIQUE CHARM WOULD BECOME EVEN MORE EVIDENT.
THERE ARE STUNNING RIVER VIEWS FROM ALL WINDOWS OF THE HOUSE.

RIVER'S EDGE IS A LOVELY PIECE OF LAND, WITH ITS ALMOST 500' OF WATERFRONT, OLD TREES, BOX WOODS AND OTHER PLANTINGS, WHICH ADD TO THE CHARM OF THIS WATERFRONT PROPERTY. THERE ARE STUNNING VIEWS OVER THE NORTH RIVER, THE BANKS OF WHICH ARE LINED BY MANY HISTORIC ESTATES.
