Foreclosure Auction of Turnkey Marina/Riverfront Development Opportunity:
This offering is ideally suited for continued operation as a public marina and for waterfront townhome development. Other intriguing uses such as a campground/RV park, etc. would require county approval. Most of the undeveloped land is zoned R-2-C, offering residential development possibilities to complement and enhance the marina.

Located off of I-64, approximately 35 miles east of Richmond and 15 miles west of Williamsburg, River's Rest Marina & Resort offers an established marina, comfortable lodging and dining in an unspoiled Chickahominy River waterfront setting. This all-in-one complex contains all the necessary equipment and facilities for a Turn Key business including a full-service, 60 wet slip marina, operating, 20-room motel, a recently renovated, well regarded restaurant and brick waterfront home.

The property consists of +/- 16.45 waterfront Acres and is improved with +/-7,761 SF, 20 room Motel, +/- 2,576 SF Restaurant, +/- 225 SF Bait and Tackle Shop, a 60-slip Marina, 2BR/1BA brick, waterfront home, 20x50 swimming pool, private shower and bathroom facilities and high-capacity community well and pumphouse.

Development Potential
Of the +/-16.45 acres, the majority of the developable land, including, significant water frontage, is zoned R-2-C. The county has approved this area for townhome development. The 2008 approval references additional sewer capacity is required, but the county has since developed a new waste treatment facility with ample capacity for any reasonable development of this site. Please find R-2 zoning ordinance and R-2-C zoning approval letter in PIP. A portion of the Property remains zoned B-1-C, General Business, including the current marina improvements and approximately one acre on Wilcox Neck Road. With the marina, restaurant and pool amenities already in place, complimentary, higher-density residential is a natural fit.

The Marina consists of four piers with floating docks, providing 60 wet slips for storage. Each wet slip has access to 30 or 50 AMP electrical service as well as pump out. The Marina also offers fueling service. The bulkhead extends along most of the parcel’s shoreline and a concrete boat ramp allows for the launching of boats from paying visitors or dry storage.
