Eastwinds, circa 1901 was built by Milton Murray, Sr. during Mathews’ heyday as a steamship landing, port of call and a major shipping hub in the Lower Chesapeake Bay Region. Previously known as “The Lindens” this beautifully constructed home maintains almost all of its original architectural features, including original cypress siding, heart of pine floors, walnut, chestnut and oak staircase, Norfolk slate roof, wood and marble fireplace mantels, moldings, doors, original chandeliers, pocket doors and privacy glass windows. Perhaps more than any other property on Williams Wharf Road, Eastwinds has been at the center of Mathews County maritime history since its construction was completed over 120 years ago. Like other properties in this lovely historic enclave, Eastwinds was previously featured on the renowned and prestigious Historic Garden Week in Virginia tour and is representative of the quintessential “Mathews Style”. Located on the deep and scenic waters of the East River, this outstanding property is convenient to Richmond, Williamsburg, Fredericksburg, and Washington, D.C. Once known as the "Pearl of the Chesapeake", it is said that "all roads lead to Mathews". The original chandeliers at Eastwinds were originally lit by acetylene gas. They have been wired for modern day electric use. There are so many wonderful amenities with this property including a four car garage which features a second floor, ideal for storage or for being converted into a caretaker's apartment, guest quarters, or office space. Over 3 acres of Oyster Ground are also available for lease. High speed internet is available onsite which makes telecommuting a viable option for those who wish to work from home. In addition, live streaming is also possible due to the 5G internet availability. In 1907 the Mathews Marine Railway was operating, which is an important part of the history of Mathews County and Eastwinds particularly.
