Little England, HAMPTON. Historic estate on protected deep-water Sunset Creek in Hampton, Virginia, just off Intracoastal Waterway and not far from Mile Marker Zero in Norfolk. Minutes by boat from the Hampton Roads Harbor and the Chesapeake Bay. One hundred fifty feet of ipe-wood dock, with pier-side boathouse and boat lift. The property is nestled in the stately neighborhood known as Darling’s Little England, which is connected by bridge to shops and restaurants in downtown Hampton. The Hampton Yacht Club, the sailing capital of the southern Chesapeake Bay, is located four blocks from the property. The three-story brick home features Flemish bond and has eight (8) bedrooms and four and one-half baths, with over 5,242 sq. ft of living space per city records, plus a full basement with wine cellar. Recent additions include installation of a new 100-year life Buckingham slate roof with all-new copper ridges and valleys, as well as a new slate-roofed outdoor kitchen/party pavilion adjacent to large, heated saltwater pool. The kitchen pavilion has gas appliances, including an infrared patio heater. Second-floor porch was restored to original open-air design. The first floor wrap-around porch faces south and overlooks a pair of magnificent live oak trees in front of Sunset Creek and its working waterfront. This unique property has been held for nearly thirty years; it is a generational opportunity for another large family or owner of a substantial yacht or fleet of boats who is looking for protected water and an accommodating waypoint or pleasure destination. The Hampton River/Sunset Creek waterway is one of the few in the area that are dredged by the Corps to accommodate tug boats, barges and large commercial vessels. 37º 01′ 02.94” N, 76º 20′ 55.65” W
