About Machipongo Virginia
Centrally located in Northampton County and also the site of Blue Heron Realty Co’s main office, Machipongo boasts a number of the most historic homes and buildings on the entire Eastern Shore, including the Pear Valley cottage, believed to be the Shore’s oldest house (circa 1672), Hungar’s Church, (established 1623) believed to be one of the oldest US churches and the Barrier Island Museum, located in the historic almshouse building, (circa 1803). Situated in the midst of beautiful open space and woodlands, life in the Machipongo is centered around water-dash; related lifestyles as four pristine saltwater Chesapeake Bay inlets meander through Machipongo. Several small waterfront neighborhoods with prime waterfront and water access homes and lots are situated around these tidal saltwaters, offering havens of tranquility and relaxation. Focused on our coastal traditions, Machipongo residents enjoy great neighborhood beaches, backyard boat docks, neighborhood boat ramps and easy access to the Chesapeake Bay’s great boating, fishing and crabbing. And for icing on the Machipongo cake, its bay front owners are treated to spectacular nightly shows as the blazing sun slips below the Chesapeake’s horizon.
