Hi! I'm Catherine Bennett, a full-time real estate broker. After showing and selling dozens of waterfront properties, it was time to find a waterfront getaway for my husband and me, and our Old English Sheepdog Fanny! Robert is an architect, professional engineer and Class A contractor so renovating this home was a delight for us. We're constantly updating and decorating, and are eager to share this special property with you.
Catherine Bennett, Broker-Owner purchased this house in 2001
This property appealed to us because:
First, it is located right on the Corrotoman River, my favorite because it is very clean and excellent for fishing and boating. It is THE river for sailboaters! By 'right on the water', I mean it is built about 25 feet from the water. Waterfront homes are now allowed to be built no closer than 100 feet from the waterfront.
Second, it has an amazing tidal pond that serves as a grocery store for the local waterfowl and a habitat for ducks, otter, and other fascinating woodland creatures. You'll be amazed at the drama that nature unveils daily, including the awesome birdwatching right here on the Atlantic flyway.
Third, it has a floorplan that makes it cozy for a couple or excellent for more people with gathering space and spread out spaces. Two fireplaces make it really cozy and the wrap around porch with screened porch below make outdoor living in Virginia's excellent weather ideal. And because I love tall rooms, the vaulted ceiling in the front half of the first floor makes it wonderful! Downstairs, there's a great place for your computer work while being out of the main living area.
Fourth, it has woods on two sides, the river on the third side and on the fourth side, up the hill, is a lovely neighbor. You can't get much more privacy! Fish Tales is 1.3 acres, including the tidal pond that is accreting, the opposite of eroding!
Fifth, it is in Corrotoman By The Bay, a wonderful little community with very nice swimming pool, free exercise equipment and wi-fi at the clubhouse, playground, and many other features. Parties, parades and other events are highlights of this area.
Most guests comment on the incredible views throughout the house of one of the most beautiful rivers in Virginia. There's occasional kayakers, fishing boats and sailboats that distract you from the awesome birds and wildlife who live on and follow the river.
They also love how beautiful the house is and the wooded setting. Best of all, they love that we welcome your family dog! The picture is of Robert with our darling Old English Sheepdog, Fanny, enjoying a few minutes of happy time in the living room.
Thank you so much for letting us rent Fish Tales! We had so much fun. I love how much detail you put into every room. Your online pictures really don't do this place justice because it is so much prettier in person. Even the dogs loved it! Dad loved crabbing (when he caught some), Heather (my sister) loved the pool, my aunt loved helping my dad crab (most of the time she had better luck than he did), Mom loved watching the way the sun reflects on the water, and I loved taking pictures of nearly everything. The little red sailboat absolutely fascinates me! Do people still use it? Mom and I think it is just for show. We even named a snake that comes to the cove right beside the deck. His name is Sssteeeree haha! We all wish we could stay longer, but unfortunately we have to leave. I hope you like the sign that we made. Until next time...
