About Bill

We are Northern Virginia natives who cherish convenient getaways to water and woods. We found it on the Chesapeake Bay. The easy commute to a nature-lovers dream located in a folksy, family-oriented community is all we could ask for.

Bill purchased this estate in 2013

Why Bill chose Reedville

The tranquil setting and spectacular views are why we chose this property. We've owned another nearby Bay-front home for two years and continue to enjoy it immensely (VRBO#399839). But this property is different and unique in many ways. We look forward to enjoying and sharing both properties for many years to come.

What makes this estate unique

Peace, privacy, and stunning views - all thanks to nature!

Great Holiday Gettaway!

  • 5 of 5

The view from windows steal the show at this house! We stayed at the home over the Thanksgiving Holiday and it was fabulous. I was able to cook a traditional feast with all of the trimmings! I did make some items before leaving home such as the from scratch pies and rolls but cooked everything else on sight. The house is clean and well decorated. The private beach is filled with hidden treasures such as sea glass and antiques that have washed up on shore. My daughter found an antique ceramic jug with a few barnacles for added character! We roasted hotdogs and marshmallows in the fire pit. We enjoyed the beautiful sunrises every morning. I highly recommend this property.

Breathtaking Property, truly perfect for all crowds

  • 5 of 5

I normally don't write reviews but had to in this case. This house is simply extraordinary. The pictures (although enticing) still do not give it justice. The interior of the house is gorgeous, it hits you immediately that the architect was of extremely high quality, it is very welcoming and open, while still being cozy and functional. There were enough beds for everyone, all utilities/furnishings were modern, the kitchen was big and clean with many pots/pans and cutting boards to feed 10 people. There is a great screened in porch room that doubled as a the perfect poker table setup. The decks around the house were the perfect width, not pretentiously large but spacious enough to be comfortable...

This leads into the outdoor property. First, the architect/home owners have great flood lights that beam from underneath the porch (not from the trees) so the lights do not blind you but illuminate a nice portion of the yard, enough to throw horseshoes at night. Second, the landscaping is perfect. Enough trees are left standing to feel like you are wooded, and you are protected from the sun if you so desire, but yet you're right on the ocean! Perfect. The firepit simply can not be beat, and I have a high standard for firepits. It looks right out onto the ocean, serene and perfectly situated for story telling and cocktails. The garage full of games, kayaks and bikes was fantastic, we used all of them.

Perhaps the highlight of the property is the private sandbar. It is only 90 second walk from the backdoor of the house, a gorgeous fun walk along the beach and through very minor brush. IT IS A PARADISE. The sandbar extends out and allows for sports, sunbathing, generally great times. The water surrounding the sanddune is knee high, with hard sand bottoms, perfect for lounging and laughing in the water.

Obviously I'm a huge fan of this house, I will definitely be going back there. I applaud the home owners for their unique blend of style, comfort, practicality, and resourcefulness. I have dreamed of a house like this, it was a pleasure to see it come to life.

As a family of 5 we seldom have the opportunity to get away. So we plan our trips for seclusion (fishing, boating, jet skiing). This was the ultimate piece of Heaven that we have come across in a long time. The house was clean and well appointed. The view was breath taking. The ability to relax was all around us. They had one clock in the house (on the stove) which was the wrong time - NO ONE was even thinking about correcting it - it did not matter what time it was. It was a true bonding with the kids vacation! Almost forgot about the birding - magnificent!! Bill was very helpful and was a great person to work with. Would love to return next year, if timing permits.

Fabulous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The preserve exceeded my expectations! The home was well equipped and furnished for an extended family with six young children. The bunk room was a real hit!

The property is beautiful and well designed with children in mind. They could play in the playhouse or build sand castles on the gorgeous beach. We arrived with bikes and kayaks in addition to the ones which come with the house and so at one point there were seven kayaks lined up on the beach. The Bay and adjacent Gaskin Pond are also great for fishing, crabbing, birding or even walking on the sand bar. We had frequent sightings of the resident Bald Eagle! And with the family science teacher I'm sure the children went home with much newly acquired knowledge.

Evenings were spent around the fire pit telling stories and roasting marshmallows. And on a cool evening there were books and puzzles to entertain us inside. There was no need to leave, there was so much to do right there.

Bill was always reachable and most helpful; he seems very concerned about the comfort of his guests.

We had a fabulous vacation and I can think of nothing I would have changed. We most certainly will try to return.

Great Vacation for a group of Friends!

  • 5 of 5

Our four families just returned from a fantastic week of relaxation and fun on "the Preserve." The kids loved exploring the property! There is a very private beach along the Chesapeake bay side of the property and an inlet that provided hours of fun kayaking and swimming. The water was extremely warm and very shallow in the inlet so the kids could easily wade almost everywhere. There were areas of silt that the children would sink into, but if you stayed towards the mouth of the inlet it was sandy. The 6 kayaks provided were used daily and we frequently saw bald eagles, osprey and heron. We also saw dolphins just a few feet offshore. The fisherman in our group unfortunately had no luck, but he had fun anyway. The house was very comfortable and we loved the screened in porches (upstairs and downstairs). The top deck was also a favorite spot. The design of the house allowed the cooks to feel like they were part of the action as the kitchen, dining room and living room were all in a great room with a wall of windows. The kitchen was well stocked, the bedrooms were spacious, the master bedroom was huge and there is an outdoor exposed shower that was perfect for rinsing off before coming inside. The house was clean and everything worked for us. The outdoors, the privacy and the view was the star here. The private beach had gentle waves and the kids could go out 40 feet from shore and still stand up, which made for a relaxing time on the beach. As far as the surrounding area, we explored a few wineries, but the towns are quite small (Kilmarnock is about 30 minutes away and seems to be the largest in the area). There is a Food Lion (we were pleasantly surprised by the selection - including beer and wine) about 25 minutes away and a small country store about 5 minutes away. Cell phone reception was poor for our plans (Verizon and Sprint) but we were able to get service at the end of out driveway. The WiFi in the house worked great. Bring bugspray (I seem to be a constant target no matter where I go) but others in our group had few problems.

We had a wonderful vacation and Bill was great to deal with, I would highly recommend this home.
