Waterfront Retreat in Northumberland County

1427 Mila Rd., Heathsville, VA 23439


Get away from it all on this beautifully unique sustainable living homestead. This quiet and serene hillside property features a concrete waterfront “earth home” situated on 4.6 acres overlooking Barrett Creek off the Wicomico River, surrounded by shrubbery and trees for natural isolation.

This functional home provides large windows facing the creek for an abundance of natural daylight.  Modern amenities include a wind-driven water pump accessing a 678 ft. artesian well, a 3000-gallon potable water storage tank, back-up shallow well, and a 275-gallon kerosene tank.  Constructed to take advantage of the temperature-moderating effects of the earth, it will stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer without demanding significant inputs from energy consuming auxiliary heating and cooling systems. and due to its earth-sheltered location home will be largely impervious to natural disasters such as tornadoes, hurricanes, and wildfires.

The private location of this property is perfect for someone seeking self-sustainability or someone looking for a weekend refuge from city life for the quiet country living, with easy access to shopping needs-come check it out!
