18th C. Riverfront, Former 3,000 Acre PLantation, Original Georgian Home

North Point offers one of the quietest, most peaceful settings anywhere in the Mid-Atlantic.
The former 3,000 acre plantation is 35 minutes from Richmond, Va., less than an hour from Colonial Williamsburg, and less than two hours from Washington, D.C. The major Civil War battle of Cold Harbor, in 1864, was fought just 20 miles from North Point.
The calm Mattaponi River, the 160 century-old box woods that line the drive leading to the house, and back porch facing the river are signature features of North Point. The seven bedroom, five bathroom, Georgian-style home sits on 15 acres overlooking a tidal bend in the river and is suffused with light throughout the day.
Built in typical 18th c. tidewater colonial style, the house is one-room deep (interior brick walls are 29 inches thick), with windows facing front, back, and side, so that the gently flowing Mattaponi River fills nearly every view from inside the house. Bald Eagles, Ospreys, King Rails and Least Bitterns, staging Soras and Tree Swallows, and large populations of geese and other winter fowl fill the air around North Point with their song.
