 This 1912 historic private home is located within a registered historic district, known as the Sea Cottage Addition of Cape Charles, which is comprised of Arts and Crafts, Victorian and other architecturally elegant homes dating from 1850 to 1915, that display a variety of styles popular during this era.  The Dryden House is unique due to its prominent size, intact historical details and central location upon Bay Avenue just steps from the beach and only two blocks from the town's charming business district. 

This three-story beachfront Victorian has an extensive wrap around porch, with a porte-cochere and stunning views of the Bay.  This home with tall ceilings and over-sized picture windows feature bay views from almost every room in the home including the kitchen. All bedrooms and the third floor finished guest quarters have water views. 


The town gazebo and free fishing pier are to the left of the home and the extensive town walkways make this ideal for strolling or catching an evening horse and carriage ride on the Bay.  Sunsets are nightly!
