Take a moment to imagine the "Birthplace of the United States," one of the most iconic and historic areas, just a short drive from most bustling Mid-Atlantic cities. The place in which the first Thanksgiving took place. A land where generations of Waterman have and continue to harvest Rockfish, Blue Crabs, and Virginia Oyster. Where family farms still thrive. Then let your mind wander to a remote 35-acre waterfront retreat in the heart of it all - a place where you can get away a reconnect with nature, family, and friends. Well, that vision can become a reality thanks to a new and unique opportunity to own Leatherneck Retreat.

A rare opportunity indeed, Leatherneck Retreat is nestled on 35-acres on Virginia's Northern Neck, off the eastern branch of the Corrotoman River. The compound's living quarters comprise a 3,036-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bath ranch house with a whole house automatic backup generator, a guest house with a two-car garage, and a spacious art studio that can double as another guest house. Strategically placed on high ground to maximize views, one can watch eagles, osprey, and herons from sunrooms or decks daily. With ample cleared flat land, you can easily expand upon the offering.

Outdoors, a protected, deep water dock, can accommodate a large yacht and is outfitted with a 10,000-pound capacity electric boat lift. The property has access to the world-famous Chesapeake Bay, where you can bring home your fresh catch or simply enjoy the water and head to Annapolis Yacht Club for award-winning cuisine. A small sandy beach bottom is ideal for launching kayaks or paddle boards. Add to that; the property has multiple oyster beds. There is a reason the phrase exists, "Virginia is for Oyster Lovers."

"This a family compound to share for generations," declares listing agent Lorraine Barclay Nordlinger of TTR Sotheby's International Realty. "This remote retreat, with its deep-water docked and cleared flat land, offers the simple pleasure of a self-sufficient lifestyle for those who enjoy country living, good fishing, boating, hunting, farming, and more."
