UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY to live â€œWhere America Beganâ€ in Yorktown VA, one leg of the Historic Triangle. Just a 2.5 hr drive south of D.C., this quaint 1920â€™s cottage on historic soil is located on .63 acres overlooking the York River & just a few hundred yards from the battlefield where the British surrendered to Gen Washington. The cliff provides an eye-popping sunrise view. Perfect as a full-time home, retreat, home-away-from-home, or rental for vacationers. Or it could be the perfect building site for your own dream home, nestled against an old-growth Japanese Maple specimen. Even the wildlife canâ€™t get enough! You will love sitting on your porch watching the river, the boats, the deer, the birds â€“ need I say more? There are two bedrooms & one bath in the cottage, but plenty of room to expand out or up. There is a large unfinished 2nd floor that could be a master, studio, or 2 smaller rooms. In addition there is a detached two-car garage with a full apartment above it. Great storage downstairs and possible rental unit upstairs. Or just have your guests call that theirs when visiting you at your new retreat! Opportunities like this do not come along often â€“ donâ€™t wait!
