6 Tazewell Avenue, Cape Charles VA 23310
Located steps from the beach, this residence was built in 1912 by W.H. Lambertson who is credited with constructing more than half the homes in the town of Cape Charles from the 1880s through the 1940s. Rich in town history and known to locals as the “Dodd House,” the home was occupied by the Horner/Dodd family across multiple generations for an impressive 84 years. With views of the Chesapeake Bay, proximity to the water and town plays a role in the home’s history. In the 1930s, the third floor was rented by a tugboat captain and his family. Visitors with a keen eye for historical detail will admire the unique original hitching post, one of the last remaining in the town.
The large, curved, wrap-around porch sets this property apart from other homes in town while complementing the interior and creating space for a welcoming front room window seat. Hardwood floors, paneling in the entryway and a traditional back staircase are original to this white frame home. In 2011 it underwent a significant renovation directed by the current homeowners, transforming this century-old home to a comfortable setting for modern family living. Open for the first time. Mr.and Mrs. Will Jones, owners.
