Property Description

Located on S. Water Lane in Tappahannock's Historic District - Emerson's Ordinary was constructed between 1710 & 1712. This intriguing property has undergone a monumental stabilization & partial restoration over the last 13 years by a well-known Architect. The offering of "The Ordinary" presents a unique opportunity to make your own lasting mark on this notable historic icon, which has seen the founding of a nation, the war of 1812 & been privy to the whispers & conversations of past Son's & Daughter’s of Liberty...Oh if only walls could talk...what stories “The Ordinary” could tell! Original floors, framing & period architectural elements remain which includes two massive fireplaces ideal for a Tavern, an additional 1st Floor Fireplace in the proposed Kitchen / Great Room area & 2 upstairs fireplaces. Towering Magnolias, large hardwood trees & a myriad of ancient heirloom bulbs & perennials remain from ages past. Walk to the River, St. Margaret's School, Northern Neck Burger, Local Restaurants, Pubic Libraries & the Essex Inn which is right across the street. A dynamic, vibrant community undergoing a revitalization awaits!
