Bluff Point spans 887± acres and sits along a gorgeous stretch of Chesapeake Bay shoreline at the end of the Northern Neck. The property occupies an enviable location ten minutes east of the town of Kilmarnock, and only two and a half hours south of Washington, DC. Despite its easy accessibility, the property feels completely removed from everyday life.
Bluff Point itself is a peninsula located at the end of a state-maintained road, offering remarkable privacy and expansive vistas of the Bay and coastline. The peninsula fronts on approximately 100 acres of tidal marsh and features over five miles of bay and marsh shoreline, including a mile of private beach. Bluff Point’s location has long been desirable, and archeological studies show that human settlement on the property dates back to the Wicomico tribe.
All the components needed to create a first-rate waterfront retreat are in place, starting with the Chesapeake Bay. The Bay sits in the heart of the Atlantic Flyway and is well-known for its exceptional waterfowl hunting and saltwater fishing. Sporting opportunities on the water are balanced by the interior timberland, which supports healthy populations of whitetail deer and wild turkey. The property is under conservation easement and allows for the construction of a home and guest house within a nine-acre building envelope that is ideally situated at the southern tip of the Bluff Point peninsula.
Bluff Point is comprised of three separate tracts. The main two tracts, Bluff Point South and Bluff Point North, are nearly contiguous and measure 258± acres and 578± acres, respectively. The third tract, The Ditchley Tract, is approximately 50 acres and located nearby.
Bluff Point South features Bluff Point itself and has end-of-the-road privacy and stunning coastal views. The tract has a well-maintained interior road system that provides convenient access throughout its acreage. In addition to the Chesapeake Bay, this tract also fronts on Barnes Creek and Oyster Creek, two sheltered inland creeks. Life on the Bay is about getting out on the water, and Bluff Point South features multiple locations to build a dock or pier. The property’s homesite sits at the end of the peninsula, and the building envelope occupies one of the prettiest locations on the property, overlooking the marsh and Bay, with views stretching down the coastline.
Bluff Point North measures 578± acres and is comprised of a pine plantation with stands of hardwoods mixed in. The pine plantation is of varying age classes, and the conservation easement allows for sustainable timber harvesting. The timber offers the opportunity for recurring long-term revenue and excellent hunting opportunities for whitetail deer and wild turkey. The tract has frontage on Jarvis Creek.
Finally, the Ditchley tract is a short drive from Bluff Point North and South and is a 50± acre pine plantation that further adds to the property’s timber assets.
Bluff Point and its marsh span 5.3± miles of shoreline on the Chesapeake Bay. The additional 1.6± miles of shoreline along Barnes Creek, Jarvis Creek, and Oyster Creek bring the property’s total water frontage to an amazing 7 miles.
Bluff Point is a blank canvas for the next owner. Large acreage, extensive water frontage, and an accessible location on the Chesapeake Bay provide an outstanding opportunity to create a best-in-class recreational retreat.
