Rivah House


What is a "Rivah" House?



This summer, your friends came back to the city and said they had been to their in-law’s Rivah house. Now you are curious!  “What is a Rivah house and what am I missing?”

“Going to the Rivah” is like living in a resort- always on vacation- but without the crowds! It is a land where docks are as common as garages and marinas are abound as tons of "creeks" make their way off the large rivers to create natural inlets. It’s a beautiful area which is surrounded by the Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. The Northern Neck of Virginia is known world wide for its Chesapeake Bay oysters and is home to many commercial fishing venues. Enjoy a convenient hour ride from Richmond or Williamsburg, gather with friends for a crab feast on the back porch, or watch the fireflies dance as you gaze up at the night sky bursting with stars.

Do I have you intrigued yet? The first step in pursuing your dream of living on the Rivah is to come visit the area.  The Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula have miles and miles of beautiful waterfront, beaches, and boating fun.  If you have never been here before it can become a bit overwhelming which is why you need a Realtor who knows the area and will find the right home for you.

Our agents at The Chesapeake Bay Group and Isabell K. Horsley real estate don’t just sell homes, we sell a lifestyle. We make it a point to sit down with you and get to know you. What are your likes and dislikes, what criteria have you set for your new home? For example, do you prefer granite or quartz countertops? How many bedrooms will you be needing?  We also want to get to know you better, learn about your lifestyle and interests.  Are you looking for the privacy of the country or would you rather be in the heart of one of our lovely towns? Do you sail, fish, play golf or tennis?  It does seem like a lot of questions, however, we have a broad spectrum of areas down here at the Rivah and we want to guide you to the best possible place for you!


Whether you’re looking for a retirement home, summer cottage, or land, we can help you find your Rivah home!
