SORRY, THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN SOLD! The James River in one spot where it borders the property. The pictures and the video of this tract were all taken in late November when the water level was fairly low in the river.
Many of the photos in this listing were taken about 1-2 years ago. Since then, the property has been leased out but the meadow area has not been mowed. Expect TALL grass and brush in the field area as it will need to be brush-hogged!
This 7.5 acre tract offers a rare chance to own direct frontage on the popular James River.
The property is somewhat triangular in shape. It has about 75′ of road frontage on its northwest side, measures about 730′ on its north side, about 720′ on its west side and the entire southwest side borders the James River for about 1,100′.

Like most acreage adjacent to a named river, part of this property falls within the 100 year flood zone. The open field and the area adjacent to the river would fall within the 100 year flood zone. The northeast section of the property rises up and would not be in the flood zone. You can build anywhere on the property but if you choose to build in the flood zone you would want to elevate your structure.
It is VERY hard to find any small acreage available on the James River, especially only five miles out of Marshfield.
The price on this large river front property is $49,500. With $500 down the monthly payments will be $520. This is about a 15 year payment schedule and an annual interest rate of 9 3/4%.

We did see some small fish in the river when we were on the property although the water was fairly low because it was mid-November. When the water is up the opportunites for fishing, floating, canoeing and kayaking should be very good.
