Chesapeake Bay Area RIVERFRONT Homes for Sale
Many dream of living on the Chesapeake Bay. Living alongside of such magnificence is a powerful draw, but not without tradeoffs. Often times, living along one of the rivers is a better decision.
Nature spares nothing and living along the Chesapeake Bay generally means higher maintenance costs for both home and equipment. It is up to each individual to balance the incredible power of the Bay with the cost of living along its shores.

Each river in the Chesapeake Bay region has its own characteristics and thus its own personality. Water depth, length, points of origin, pathway, width and salinity all play a role in how the market engages each river. Understanding the physical characteristics of any body of water is important when purchasing a home on the Bay, a river or any of the creeks in all of Eastern Va.
Moving from south to north, the primary rivers which lead to the Chesapeake Bay are the James River, York River, Mobjack Bay, Rappahannock, Piankatank, Great Wicomico, and the Potomac.
The Rappahannock River forms the southern/western border of the Northern Neck and separates it from the Middle Peninsula. Often, those unfamiliar with the region refer to the entire area as the Northern Neck.
The Mobjack Bay, while not a river, feeds the Chesapeake and itself is fed by the North River, the Severn River, the East River, and the Ware River.
