SOLD! 1.92 Acres of Rural Residential Land with Cottage Home For Sale in Suffolk VA!

This small cottage home is ready to be customized to a one or two bedroom cottage for your permanent residence or weekend getaway! Wildlife, beautiful views, and sunsets!

Come and see our cute little stripped out house, which sits on a beautiful country setting within a short distance to downtown Suffolk. The owner started to renovate and determined the surrounding beauty and its location are just too nice for this house to be refurbished for rental property. The home is located on 1.92 acres of land on a low traffic count rural road which offers gorgeous views of sunsets, cattle pastures, cropland, and forest while sitting in the well maintained shady yard. The owner envisions this site as a great place to add your dream home to the existing house or to refurbish the existing home as a quaint cottage for a relaxed lifestyle. There is a double detached garage, which can be used for a garage or refurbished for a ‘man cave’.

Deer, turkeys, ducks, rabbits, and other wildlife are often seen along with an occasional stray herd of cattle. The neighboring cattle farmer’s visiting herd is a sign the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence!

The home is located within minutes of shopping, entertainment, and numerous restaurants in Suffolk and Franklin. Suffolk is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia. As of the 2014 census, the estimated population was 86,806. It is the largest city in Virginia by area as well as the 14th largest in the country.

Suffolk is located in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area which also includes the independent cities of Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach, as well as other smaller cities, counties, and towns of Hampton Roads. With miles of waterfront property on the Nansemond and James River, present day Suffolk was formed in 1974 after consolidating with Nansemond County and the towns of Holland and Whaleyville.

Franklin is an independent city west of Suffolk. As of the 2010 census, the population was 8,582. The city of Franklin had its beginnings in the 1830s as a railroad stop along the Blackwater River. During this era, the river was used to transport goods to and from Albemarle Sound in North Carolina.

Also, it’s within an hour of many historical, entertainment, and recreational attractions in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. The Va. Beach oceanfront is within an hour drive for fishing, surfing, or just great family fun time at the beach. Give us a call before it’s too late!
