Explore Isle Of Wight County Waterfront Real Estate

Isle of Wight County waterfront real estate can be found in many locations across the county. The largest waterway in the area is the James River which divides Isle of Wight County from the bustling Hampton Roads region. Homes that are directly situated on the James River typically belong to one of the small unincorporated communities of Bartlett, Carrollton, Rescue, or Battery Park. Further inland along the Pagan River, there are many waterfront homes that belong to the town of Smithfield.

On the high end of the market, waterfront homes may be valued at more than a million dollars. Situated on sizeable acreages, these rural paradises offer high-quality living and privacy. Acreages also provide homeowners with the freedom to keep horses, garden, landscape, and more. Inside, these homes might feature chef’s kitchens with quartz countertop, stainless steel appliances, and under mount sinks. Other homes might include custom wood work, elegant spiral staircases, and trey ceilings.

On the low end of the market, it is possible for home buyers to invest in a single-family residence for as little as $100,000. These houses often reflect recent construction and are located within master-planned subdivisions. With two or three bedrooms, these houses can be the perfect investment for young families just starting out.

As one of the earliest settlements in Virginia, Isle of Wight County is home to several historic houses that were built on the water as well. Some date back as early as the 1920s and embody all of the charms of early American architecture. With spacious front porches, gabled roofs, and white clapboard siding, they echo a time passed. For those with a passion for local history, these houses are an incredible opportunity not to be missed.

Amenities Near The Isle Of Wight County Waterfront

A number of communities dot the shores of the James and Pagan Rivers, and residents of Isle of Wight County Waterfront real estate are most likely to make use of the amenities within these towns. The largest of these communities are Smithfield and Windsor. Smithfield is home to more than 8,000 residents and has all of the basic amenities residents need for daily life.

Families with children will find that there are several schools within the Isle of Wight County School District that are located at various points along the waterfront. These include four elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school.

For those who don’t have a deep water property where they can launch their boat on site, there are a couple of options. South of Smithfield, the Jones Creek Boat Ramp is free and offers quick access to Jones Creek, the Pagan River, and the larger James River. North of Smithfield, there is also the Tyler’s Beach Boat Ramp. This launch point offers users direct access to the wide, flowing waters of James River. In many points, the James River is more than five miles wide, and it takes the title of being the 12th longest river in America that is contained within a single state. In fact, the river measures a total of 348 miles before draining into the Atlantic Ocean. As such, those who have a boat will find that they have plenty of opportunities to explore the coastline and catch a range of local fish including herring, sunfish, and catfish.
