And as one would expect, the towns of Eastern Virginia are heavily reliant upon the Chesapeake Bay.
The Eastern Virginia real estate marketplace breaks down along two primary lines:
- The Northern Neck
- The Middle Peninsula
The Northern Neck begins on the north/east banks of the Rappahnnock River and runs to the southern/western banks of the Potomac River and comprises the counties of Lancaster, Northumberland, Richmond and Westmoreland. Prominent towns include Irvington, Kilmarnock, Deltaville, White Stone and Warsaw.
Often areas within the Middle Peninsula are considered a part of the Northern Neck by those less familiar with the region. The Middle Peninsula is comprised of Gloucester, Mathews and Middlesex County.
