Bluff Point spans 887± acres and sits along a gorgeous stretch of Chesapeake Bay shoreline at the end of the Northern Neck. The property occupies an enviable location ten minutes east of the town of Kilmarnock, and only two and a half hours south of Washington, DC. Despite its easy accessibility, the property feels completely removed from everyday life.
Bluff Point itself is a peninsula located at the end of a state-maintained road, offering remarkable privacy and expansive vistas of the Bay and coastline. The peninsula fronts on approximately 100 acres of tidal marsh and features over five miles of bay and marsh shoreline, including a mile of private beach. Bluff Point’s location has long been desirable, and archeological studies show that human settlement on the property dates back to the Wicomico tribe.
All the components needed to create a first-rate waterfront retreat are in place, starting with the Chesapeake Bay. The Bay sits in the heart of the Atlantic Flyway and is well-known for its exceptional waterfowl hunting and saltwater fishing. Sporting opportunities on the water are balanced by the interior timberland, which supports healthy populations of whitetail deer and wild turkey. The property is under conservation easement and allows for the construction of a home and guest house within a nine-acre building envelope that is ideally situated at the southern tip of the Bluff Point peninsula.
