Leave backed up traffic, six lane highways, earthquakes and hurricanes behind for a quiet coastal paradise promising a lifetime of peaceful living between secluded barrier island beaches, protected seaside sounds and the majestic Chesapeake Bay.
Although our waterfront home sites offer incredible views and lifestyle, on Virginia's Eastern Shore you do not have to live on the waterfront to enjoy all the area has to offer. There are 32 free boat ramps located on seaside and bayside of our narrow peninsula where you can launch your boat within minutes from either side to enjoy the sunrises, sunsets and seasonal fish runs.
The diversity of land choices on Virginia's Eastern Shore is unsurpassed. The southern tip of the Delmarva peninsula in Virginia is just 70 miles in length and averages about 7 miles in width. You can drive to all parts of the area within an hour.
The "bay side" offers property on or near the Chesapeake Bay, where you'll find long stretches of sandy beach interrupted by inlets cutting in for several miles. The salt water inlets are locally named "creeks", and usually have Indian names such as Nassawadox, Occohannock and Nandua. Along these major creeks you'll find boating properties with individual docks, public boat ramps, and commercial marinas. The shorelines of the larger creeks also offer smaller, protected coves. These coves are serene waterfowl nesting areas and although the water may be a little shallower, the views are incredible!
The “seaside” is lined with salt marshes and shallow bays, known as the seaside sounds. The seaside sounds house a thriving commercial aqua culture industry, growing oysters and clams. Aqua culture is the largest industry on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
Following the channels through the seaside sounds will lead to the secluded barrier islands of the Virginia Coastal Reserve, where you can enjoy beach combing, surf fishing or just a lazy day on the sand. Following the channel weaving through the barrier islands will lead to the Atlantic Ocean.
Whether your dreams are for a home on the beach, a deep water creek with your boat tied to the dock, a relaxing view over the calm waters of a scenic cove or having direct access to the Atlantic Ocean for deep sea fishing….the Kirkwood Group has it all!
With a long history of building development projects to successful completion, you can have confidence in selecting The Kirkwood Group to help you acquire just the right property to meet your needs.
"This area provides an atmosphere and lifestyle that cannot be found anywhere else on the East Coast.

"My husband and I were thrilled when we found the beautiful Eastern Shore of Virginia while vacationing from New York City. We love going to beaches and fishing so were pleasantly surprised when we found a very affordable property in Waterside Village. We are looking forward to building a vacation home here soon as it is the perfect location near the harbor for our boat."
"After having lived in town for several years on the Eastern Shore, my wife, Christina and I want to build where our property values will be better protected. We chose a five acre wooded site in the Peacefuls which offers us all the privacy we want. We are in a community with much more expensive waterfront homes so our home's value will be well protected. The beautiful common area at the beachfront is an added bonus."
"My husband and I bought in the Clearview community where he fell in love with a tidal pond on our building lot. We built our dream home and were amazed at the wild life that visits the tidal pond and the cove behind our home. The community dock is perfect for tying up the pontoon boat and Morleys Wharf boat ramps are nearby. I like the country feel of Clearview while still being very close to shopping and other conveniences."
