Eastern Shore Victorian home blogs for itself

Looking forward to the Sunday ‘Gracious Living’ publication in the Virginian Pilot!

In case you missed the article in the Virginian-Pilot, “Look Who’s Talking” was the title in the paper.  An abbreviated version is available on-line.  Here is the article on the Hampton  Roads website!  The photographer was here this week and the editor was quick to follow-up with an in-depth interview.   I may be 125 years-young, but I’ve had no problem staying current with 21st-century technology!

I blog, have a Facebook page and Twitter too!

If you are shopping for a home, you are probably shopping for a mortgage too.  Allow me to recommend a local Hampton Roads company: New American Mortgage.

This company has been bucking all the odds in the face of the current economy.  They break their company record for the previous month just about every month for three years now!  Plus they have been voted ‘Best of’ in a number of different categories for a number of years in Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads!

The hard-working processors and underwriters at New American Mortgage will do more in the FIRST TWENTY-FOUR HOURS to get your loan approved than most other mortgage companies will do in three weeks!

Now that you know where to get your mortgage, what are you waiting for?  If you haven’t made an appointment to see me yet, you are missing the home of your dreams!  You know you are tired of touring homes that just don’t have what you’re looking for, they all leave you wishing they had the ‘it’ factor.  Make an appointment today to come for a visit: (757) 678-7200.  You could be enjoying your Saturday morning coffee on the back porch admiring the camellia’s in just a few weeks!

Beauty In a Winter Sky

Winter Sky in Eastville

The winter sky is beautiful.  No matter the season, I never tire of greeting the morning here in Eastville.

If these walls could talk . . .

If these walls could talk . . .

You often hear folks say, “If these walls could talk . . .”  My walls would tell you a story that would span over a century.  They would speak of hard times and joyous ones.   They would tell you about the numerous parties hosted here by my three owners over the last 125 years.  They would speak of the abundant harvest of shellfish and agriculture from the Eastern Shore.


Agriculture is and has always been the foundation for the economy of Virginia’s Eastern Shore.   The last decade has seen the area become better known for tourists with the Harvest Festival and Birding Festivals and many smaller Harbor Parties given by the local towns.


Two years before I was built the railroad was extended from Maryland down to Cape Charles.  This was a great boon to the local economy.   It resulted in area watermen and farmers being able to get their harvest not only to northern markets but also to southern markets on the railcars floated across the Chesapeake Bay by barge to the Hampton Roads.  The addition of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in the 1960’s made the Eastern Shore much more accessible and resulted in more folks purchasing a second home to vacation and enjoy the beautiful setting and mild climate.

Folks refer to me as a ‘grand old home’.  It’s been my pleasure to welcome weary travelers for a visit or host and afternoon soiree or the party for the prom. This 1886 Victorian at Eastville Station is looking

forward to welcoming new visitors, just as it has for almost 125 years now!   The ‘back forty’ is still owned by the same family that built me originally. Come see us!

Bloom where God Plants You!

Camellia blooming at beautiful victorian for sale on Eastern Shore of VirginiaWhile some folks are already struggling with winter weather, we have been blessed with beautiful mild weather here on the lovely Eastern Shore of Virginia.

I’ve been right here for almost 125 years now and while Eastville has seen some harsh winters, it is usually mild here compared to other areas.  Most years we have at least one day in January that hits 70 degrees.  We’ve had some warm days this month and some seasonable cold days too.

Well, this past weekend was just lovely.  My owner was enjoying her morning coffee on my sunny southeastern porch while she admired the beauty of the winter-blooming Camellias.  She wished more folks would have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful blooms could.  So she scrambled up a ladder to gather the pretty pink blooms from one Camellia bush and then the lovely white blooms from another.  She gathered branches of English Boxwood and clippings from the Acuba and then she called the nursing home in Nassawadox.  She asked the nurse to gather as many vases as she could find.  “I know we have three or four.  I’ll look for more,” said the nurse.

My owner arrived to find the counter covered with at least 20 vases.  Luckily she had plenty of lovely blooms to fill them all.  The residents that received them smiled with delight at the unexpected and beautiful winter blooms!

What are you waiting for?  It’s time you enjoy the unexpected delights of the Eastern Shore of Virginia, we’ll leave the light on for you!
