The numerous porches and patios of this contemporary English manor home provide scenic vistas of the Chesapeake Bay. Situated amidst tall pine trees on a golf course in the Bay Creek Community on land first surveyed by Capt. John Smith, the home was built in 2015. Old and new converge at this location rich in Virginia history. The home looks out onto the mouth of Old Plantation Creek, a site that played a significant role in Bacon’s Rebellion in 1676. Bay Creek was developed on land belonging to Littleton Waller Tazewell, the 26th governor of Virginia (1834-1836).
Inside the home, a dramatic spiral staircase is the first of many outstanding architectural features guests will experience. Each room of the contemporary interior is styled differently from the next. The light-filled open floor plan is offset by striking color and fabric choices and custom woodwork. Azalea, hydrangea and rhododendron highlight the grounds with color. Adirondack chairs surround a fire pit on the back patio, inviting guests to enjoy the pines, hollies and Eastern Shore native plants that collectively frame the serene water views. Open for the first time. Mr. & Mrs. Thomas Nelson, owners.
