Waterview at Lightview
Located in the historical community of Gloucester County, Virginia, the 5+/- estate begins with a drive along a tree and daffodil lined, half mile private lane. Construction of the home began in the 1830’s, with a complete restoration and modernization occurring in 1983. Upgrades have been continually added.
“Lightview” was featured in the 2003 Virginia Garden Week.
Surrounded by beautifully landscaped lawns and gardens, including a 300 year old Pin Oak, the 5,500+ sq. ft., 3-story home features a 40’ foyer, Victorian gables, sun porches, and a square bay tower.

Contrasting harmoniously with the formal rooms are the modern, open-plan kitchen with breakfast area and brick-floored sunroom; step out of the sunroom onto a patio surrounding the in ground pool. The Master Suite features a bay window, walk-in closet and whirlpool bath.
Fifteen Rooms – Six bedrooms – Four full baths – Five fireplaces – 10’ ceilings.
