About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The house and the area are wonderful. It is where communities farm and watermen make their living in a glimpse into an era gone by but, still preserved, in the Northern Neck. There are great opportunities for recreation, observation and relaxation.

About The Owner

Hello, my name is Steve Hansen and my wife is Alexandra Gifford. We are co-owners of the Irvington golf house. I was a teacher for 22 years and Zan is currently working on her 33rd year teaching. We love to get down to the property, she lets me play golf if I promise to play a set of tennis. We love to canoe and one of our goals is to canoe to Charlies Tiki Bar where we can beach the canoe and walk up for cocktails!.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Irvington

We chose this particular house because it is directly on King Carter Golf Course and has two other courses only a five minute drive away. There are two vineyards very close by, not to mention Chesapeake Bay and the Rappahanock River close enough to get to in minutes.

What makes this house unique

The property is a quiet residential neighborhood on the golf course. There is an abundence of wild life in the area and a 'bluebird trail' just outside the back screened porch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to let know we had a wonderful stay in your lovely home! We enjoyed how clean and peaceful it was! Wednesday night we all agreed that none of us can ever have seen so many stars in the sky. It was so beautiful!

Wonderful visit....even with the 1 degree temps during our 2018 blizzard. Rolling hills of the golf course covered in snow made a Winter Wonderland....looking forward to a spring visit....

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second time staying at this home while we visited with family nearby. Communication with the owner was very fluid. The house was clean; bedding was comfortable. Instructions were very clear, so it was easy to follow the house rules. I recommend it to anyone looking for a great home base in the area.
