125 Creekside Lane, Cape Charles VA 23310
Situated on historic Old Plantation Creek in Cape Charles’ Bay Creek community, this grand brick home was built in 2014. The arched entry of an open foyer leads to living spaces highlighted by collections and pieces curated from the homeowners’ extensive world travels. Highlights are the dining room niche wall, vaulted beams of lime-washed Pecky Cypress in the family room and variety of special finishes throughout the home. Woodwork, such as the paneling in the study, originated from trees milled on-site.
Faux marbling on the baseboards and decorative wall finishes were painted by the owner. Works by local Eastern Shore artists are displayed throughout the home. Outside, a pierced wall serves as a framework for informal gardens designed to include an optimal number of Eastern Shore native plants, thus creating a welcoming habitat for migrating species. A herringbone brick path leads the way through a sitting garden brimming with lilies, roses and hydrangea. Open for the first time. Mr. and Mrs. William Girtman, owners.
