Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
I'd like to kick off my little Commonwealth of Virginiana
feature with a bang, and what better way of doing that than highlighting the only private island available for sale
in the entire
Commonwealth of Virginia.Chopawamsic Island
, located on the Potomac directly off of the shores of U.S. Marine Corps Base Quantico—the
crossroads of the Marine Corps—is the only
island in that river that is the domestic property of the Old Dominion, owing to the peculiar verbiage of our sacred agreement of 1632 with the State of Maryland
, which we continue to honour to this day.
This island would make a perfect
resort home for any
beleaguered Inside-the-Beltway suburbanite. Allow me to outline the exquisite
benefits that come with this property at no additional cost:
- Quiet and Serene Surroundings!
You know, other than the large airport and heavily-used train corridor, it's pretty quiet.
- Convenient access to Washington, D.C.!
Haven't you always wanted to sail the Potomac? If so, you'll be delighted to know that, unless you plan on building your own causeway out to your luxurious estate, boat is the only way to visit the District. But at least if you go by boat, it'll be faster than sitting in traffic on Interstate 95!
- Very Secure!
Because Chopawamsic ("Chop") Island resides adjacent to Marine Corps Base Quantico, you are guaranteed the services of the vaunted dragoons of the U.S. Marine Corps for your Island's defence! All boats entering the waters surrounding your Estate must first check in with the Marines, otherwise they're sure to be in for a bit of fun.
For a mere
$25,000,000, this little property could be yours!
