Brighton – Mathews Co – 61 Acres – $2,950,000


Mathews VA real estate waterfront.

Gorgeous waterfront property set on the East River in Mathews County.

This historic home built in 1916 features 2 main houses and a boat house on its own peninsula.

With 6,066 sq ft, the Summer House as it is referred to, is a classic Colonial built at the turn of the century and was the first home constructed on the 61-acre estate.

The main floor showcases a grand gathering room with a fireplace that opens up to an expansive screened-in porch with spectacular water views.

A formal dining room for family gatherings and a lovely country kitchen. Upstairs there are 8 large bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms each with spectacular views of Mobjack Bay.

The ‘Winter House’ offers 2, 508 sq ft with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a home office that was once owned by the inventor of what would later be known as the IBM computer.

This extraordinary property offers two additional tenants’ homes that could be used as investment properties and an additional dock.

Reminiscent of a bygone era this truly magical property will send you back in time to when we moved at a slower pace and days were spent on summer porches watching the sunset over the bay.

All within a short drive to the heart of downtown Mathews.

On the market for the first time in a century.
