on Carters Creek
On Carters Creek in the heart of the quaint coastal village of Irvington, this striking, custom design with cedar shakes and white trim is reminiscent of an early seaside resort. The style provides the allure of times past, yet blends innovative details of today’s lifestyle to create an inspired river retreat. The residence with private pool fits the site like a glove.
Created to accommodate two families with compatible, but different aesthetics, one design reflects classic Virginia style and the other an open, coastal design. This luxury home offers an inspired river retreat that is ideal for shared living or group gathering place. The ten-foot ceilings and outstanding millwork enhance the casual style with a touch of elegance. The floors of French limestone and heart pine confirm the commitment to authenticity. With tall windows, the great room has a light, airy atmosphere; while the living room and library, both having a fireplace, conveys a warm, cozy quality. Two custom kitchens with granite counters, center islands, high-end appliances, and plentiful storage provide impressive workspaces. The second floor encompasses five bedrooms, including two master suites opening to waterfront decks and porches; an office and den.
