Among the scenic waterways in Virginia, a host of impressive rivers make their way to the Chesapeake Bay, perhaps the most picturesque of all is the beautiful Piankatank, with its deeply wooded banks and gently winding course. So broad where it meets the bay you can hardly see from one shore to the other other, the Piankatank is a boaters paradise. And just a few miles from where the river meets the bay, there is a quiet little inlet, lined with hardwoods, where the herons come to dine and waters are deep and protected. An inlet charted as Wilton Creek. As you glide up its deep still waters you see that the shore off your port bow is dotted with coves, offering further protection with their high banks. And, if you look carefully you will find among the tall trees along the shores of these coves a community. A community so in tune with this environment you would think it a natural part of its surroundings. You’ve discovered the Coves at Wilton Creek, first developed by an award-winning Northern Virginia architect and developer in the late 1980’s.
The Coves achieves a significant design goal. Namely, gently placing an impeccably planned community within this setting. You’ll find The Coves at Wilton Creek rich in lifestyle alternatives. While it offers you the quiet serenity to take you far from the bustling city, it also provides a multitude of recreational activities for you to enjoy, right within the community. You can start at the Community clubhouse and waterside pool overlooking Wilton Creek, whose facilities are available without charge to residents. The Clubhouse offers an exercise room, sauna, library and meeting rooms for residents use. Tennis courts, walking trails, a boat ramp and boat storage complete this picture. Most of all there is the water. Haul anchor and pull away, you are seconds from the beautiful Piankatank, the Chesapeake Bay with its sailing and cruising grounds and well-known sport fishing is just minutes beyond. The community boasts two gracious separate condominium communities with deeded boat slips and single family waterfront and pond front homes and homes sites. There still a few wonderful opportunities for ownership in the Coves at Wilton Creek.
The community is located less than 60 minutes from Williamsburg, 90 minutes from downtown Richmond, 2.5 hours from Charlottesville, and 3 hours from Washington, DC.
