Small Town Lifestyle Properties
It’s Not Mayberry — But It’s Very Close
Eastern Shore Virginia has over 100 small towns and villages. Many have quaint names like “Oyster“, “Towns End” or Indian names like “Nassawadox” and “Machipongo.” But regardless of the name, they all have one thing in common – they are small friendly places that have been around a long time! And most of the homes have front porches, the better to enjoy a friendly wave or a little conversation with a passing neighbor.
Visit cute shops, banks and post offices where the folks there know your name and pride themselves on giving you personal service. Enjoy our little town restaurants, art galleries and markets. A small coastal town is not just a place to live— it is a time-honored way of life.

Over the River & Through the Woods

Imagine moonrise and brilliant “shooting stars” set against a dark sky, unspoiled by the glow of the city lights. Imagine enough space for flower and vegetable gardens and the satisfaction of watching them grow.
