Stunningly Restored Tidewater Farmhouse Asks $795K

New, 4 comments

Bucolic country living doesn't get much finer than when it's done on a stately Virginia estate. JFK and Jackie knew it, which is why the only home they ever built is in Marshall, Va. Heck, even Donal Trump knows it. This charming little number sits right along the Potamac in Kinsvale, in the Northern Neck of Virgina—a peninsula that hangs off the northeastern part of the state which is known, among other things, for a spicy local brand of Ginger Ale that was acquired by Coke and subsequently diluted—specifically on a bird sanctuary that was once owned by novelist John Dos Passos. The 2,474-square-foot four-bedroom farmhouse received a full-scale restoration in 2006, as is evident in the spacious great room, which has a vaulted ceiling, built-in bookcases, a fireplace, and a wet bar. Outside there's a deep-water pier and nearly six acres of land to explore. It's "priced to sell as is," so as always, caveat emptor, but it seems like quite the steal at $795K.
