Property Details

General Description

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 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 5.35 miles of shoreline on the Chesapeake Bay. The additional 1.67 miles of shoreline along Barnes Creek, Jarvis Creek, and Oyster Creek bring the property’s total water frontage to an amazing 7.02 miles. 

Improvements

The South Tract features one and three-quarter miles of well-improved internal roads. The North Tract features miles of timber roads. Most of those are passable in a truck or SUV, while others are better accessed via ATV/UTV. Beyond the existing roads, the property is unimproved, offering the next owners a blank canvas to implement their vision.
