Welcome to First Light Farm! Privacy and serenity are at your fingertips with all-around views of Green Mansion Cove at North River. Launch your boat at Mobjack Marina (deep water) across the cove, and enjoy easy access to the Chesapeake Bay. From our private dock spend your days boating, kayaking, fishing, crabbing, or discovering our oyster cages. Jog, walk, practice golf, and explore 22 private acres with 2-horse barn, or, just relax with a glass of wine on the dock, or fire pit.

First Light Farm sits on 22 pristine acres and was once part of the historic Green Mansion estate, circa 1900. With over 1,200 feet of waterfront at Green Mansion Cove North River, our 2,800 square feet home is designed to drink in water views from every room; it literally sits just a few feet from the water’s edge! Three kayaks are provided for your use as well as lifejackets in various sizes.

Stunningly remodeled, the 2,800 square foot home is a modern farmhouse that exudes warmth, practicality, comfort, and rustic country elements updated for the now. A rich mix of industrial, minimal, and Scandinavian touch create unique spaces that take full advantage of every architectural hallmark – flawed or not. The open floor plan flows seamlessly with original wood floors throughout, it is the perfect blend of nostalgic charm and modern conveniences. Ten-foot ceilings and cathedral entryway on the lower-level living area adds to the sense of freedom and openness.

Ospreys, eagles, and heron along with numerous other flying visitors frequent the property adjoining North River. Oysters, crabs, and fish are abundant and provide hours of fun - both catching and consuming! Our home provides a perfect safe, and healthy get-away for couples and families! We welcome dogs too, for an additional nightly fee of $25/nt per pet. We can also supply a highchair and Pak 'N Play upon request.

Lower Level
As you open the door to First Light Farm, the first thing you will see beyond the cathedral ceiling, open-plan entryway and dining area is the water! On the left is the cozy breakfast nook – with water view, and on the right, an impressive stairway to the second level. Once you have become familiar with the layout, sit around the coffee table in one of three different chairs or love seat, and enjoy your complimentary welcome bottle of California wine!

Dining Area:
The seven-foot dining table comfortably seats six and parallels an expansive gateway window overlooking the water. Change the mood for your meal by dimming the lights - a feature found in three of the lower-level lighting areas.

A vintage island with seating for five anchors the open kitchen with expansive windows offering 180-degree water-views. Luxury appliances include a six burner, double-oven Dacor range, built-in double door Kitchen-Aid refrigerator, and Bosch dishwasher provide the perfect foundation for your home cooked meals. The glass-pane back door leads out to a cozy 4’x6’ deck and new propane bar-b-que. You can enjoy cooking outside and be only 20 feet from the water’s edge (which becomes even closer at high tide!).

Breakfast Nook:
Provides some separation from the kitchen and comfortably accommodates four also offering expansive water-views. Enjoy brewing your early morning coffee at first light with either a single cup, or a carafe at the coffee station. You can select from one of our six different choices of roasts.

Living Room:
There is plenty of space for guests to enjoy playing games, watching television streamed through Roku, or simply just relax in front of the original fireplace that has been converted to gas. Two, seven-foot French Doors lead out to the Sunroom and ultimately to the outside.

Don’t be surprised if this is your favorite room in the entire house! A round wooden table is large enough for three to eat comfortably, or simply sit in the wicker furniture and enjoy the view, and enjoy the view, and enjoy the view.

Bedroom #1, Bedroom #2 and Foyer:
Located on the lower level, both bedrooms are accessed through the foyer from the entryway, or through the Living Room. The original property and its’ period are reflected in this part of the house with original farmhouse doors and glass doorknobs, sloping floor, and lower ceilings add character, charm and privacy. Both bedrooms share an updated spa-influenced bathroom with a large walk-in, glass door shower.

Bedroom #1:
Decorated in a peaceful grey green, the comfy queen size bed does not swamp the footprint of the original bedroom. Two modest closets frame the cute window seat ,which has a direct view of the water, and there is plenty of room for suitcases full of clothes in the 4-drawer dresser. Any guest will delight in waking up to the peaceful garden and river beyond.

Bedroom #2:
The second of the two-ground floor North facing bedrooms has two windows providing natural light, cottage style closet and a peak of the river from both windows. Like its counterpart, the cozy Bedroom #2 has sufficient storage space; Roku and personal TV round out the comforts.

Downstairs Bathroom:
The updated spa-influenced bathroom offers a single sink, commode, and a large walk-in tiled shower with full glass sliding door. The river is also visible from this bathroom. A stackable washer and dryer is located in the bathroom, and available for guests’ use.

Upper Level
The 14 steps lead to an open landing that over-looks the Entry Way and Breakfast Nook! The impressive floor to ceiling original open red-brick chimney column adds to the ambience, and the reclaimed antique glass panel windows, allow an abundance of light to the already open space.

Three more steps lead you to the loft, and another opportunity for a quiet and secluded sitting area. Choose to relax in a comfortable wing-back chair, faux black leather couch or everyone’s favorite: the six-foot window seat! If activity is more your liking, then use the loft as you own personal yoga studio. Through the large dormer window enjoy watching both the river and the sky change color throughout the day, or laugh at your family as they kayak, or swim off the long dock. The couch folds down to a twin sized bed and the window seat also doubles as an additional twin.

Master Bedroom, Bedroom #3:
The firm king mattress will provide restful nights in our almost 300 square foot master bedroom and a third and equally impressive dormer window floods the room with natural light. Like the loft, the window seat is designed for sitting or converting to an additional bed – ideal for young children. Hang your clothes in the spacious walk-in closet, but for our taller guests: remember the sloping roof!

The en-suite modern bathroom has a large walk-in tiled shower with glass shower-door, two sinks, Eco-friendly commode with bidet attachment. If the morning is chilly, be sure to set the floor heat on before you get up. The wall-length windows allow natural light and yes, a view of the water.

It was the rural, sleepy-village atmosphere with easy and quick access to all city-like amenities that drew us to Mathews. We hope you share the same delight and enjoy every moment of privacy at First Light Farm and vicinity.

Visit the nearby town of Mathews, or Gloucester Court House which are both just 7 miles away. The villages offer many historic sights and special events including the Guinea Jubilee, Gloucester Arts Festival and Historic Home and Garden Tour. Enjoy family owned restaurants, or visit quaint Antique shops and art studios. Be sure to swing by the local pub, Gloucester Brewing Company for a pint, not 'alf!

Five more minutes driving, you will arrive in Gloucester. This has many of the recognized stores including Home Depot, WalMart, Ulta, PetCo and Marshalls. Plus fast food chains such as Wendy's, McDonalds and Chick-fil-A.

If you can't get enough of the water in your back yard, then visit some of the local beaches including Bethel Beach Natural Area Preserve, or Haven Beach. At the entrance to Mobjack Bay is one of the countries oldest lighthouses: New Point Light House. Not accessible by land it is still worth visiting - perhaps take your own boat from our dock?

Historic Yorktown waterfront, or Colonial Williamsburg are both within a short driving distance, as is Busch Gardens. DC is located only 2 hours and 50 minutes by car, or how about taking the Amtrak?
