About 0 Brighton Ln

Gorgeous waterfront property set on the East River in Mathews County. This historic home built in 1916 features 2 main houses and a boat house on its own private peninsula. With 6,066 square feet the 'Summer House' as it is referred to, is a classic Colonial built at the turn of century and was the first home constructed on the 61 acre estate. The main floor showcases a grand gathering room with a fireplace that opens up to two expansive screened in porches on both the front and back of the house one with spectacular water views and the other with garden views. A library/living room with a gas fireplace, a large formal dining room with a fireplace, a butler's pantry, a lovely country kitchen and a laundry room. Upstairs there are 8 large bedrooms with spectacular views of Tabbs Creek, East River and out to the Mobjack Bay and 4 full bathrooms. The 'Winter House' offers 2,508 sq ft with 4 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, living room with a fireplace, formal dining room with a fireplace, butlers pantry, country kitchen and a home office with a fireplace that was once owned by the inventor who sold his business to what would be renamed as IBM. Situated next to these homes on the private peninsula is where the huge family garden used to produce a variety of fruits and vegetables with fig trees dotting the perimeter. Carriage barns/stables, 2 car garage with carport and workshop and a 2 bedroom 1 bath guest house are also on the private peninsula. This extraordinary property offers acreage for farming, equipment barns and two additional tenants homes that could be used as investment properties one with 2 docks. Reminiscent of a bygone era, this truly magical property will send you back in time to when we moved at a slower pace and days were spent on summer porches watching the sunset over the bay. Now on the market for the first time in close to a century you can escape the busy noise of city life and own your own private peninsula with plenty of room to easily host family and friends all within a short drive to the heart of downtown Mathews.
