Middlesex County Homes For Sale
Chesapeake Bay, Virginia
Middlesex County is located in Eastern Virginia in the Middle Peninsula region of the Chesapeake Bay. Middlesex shares a long border with the Rapphannock River and is home to many of the region's most well known towns. The famed Oyster Festival is held each year in Urbana and the famed fisherman's paradise of Deltaville, located at the confluence of the Rappahannock and the Chesapeake Bay, can also be found in Middlesex. The Piankatank River forms much of the Couty’s southern border with Mathews.
Middlesex is the furthermost northern county in the Middle Peninsula and once you cross the Rappahannock, you enter what is formally referred to as the Northern Neck.
The Middlesex side of the Rappahannock is extremely popular in that it is generally less than 90 minutes to most of Richmond and much of Tidewater and offers wide expanses, many sandy beaches and quick access to deep water.
