Food Lion - Lake Anna's One and Only Supermarket. Step inside and take a good look. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised when I saw how nice it looked. It has very nice displays and is so clean and neat. What a great addition to our lake living. If you've had a chance to shop the scenes will be familiar to you and if you haven't as yet, be sure to take a look first chance you get. Hope you can. It is really a treat. I have more photos to share at another time. Meanwhile if you'd like to see more posts about Food Lion/Lake Anna you can check: The "Future" is Getting Closer at Lake Anna Where Do You Grocery Shop at Lake Anna?

Although there are many ways to have fun on Lake Anna one of my favorite things to do is taking pictures.  Yes, I hate being on the boat without my camera.  There is no doubt that there will be many, many things I'll see that I want to capture to look at over and over again. Granted the things of interest to me are often houses and boat houses but that may not be so strange for a Realtor®.  Every time I'm out on the water I notice at least one house I haven't noticed before.  It may be a brand new construction or simply one that escaped my sight before.  The same goes for boat houses.  Then there are always the places that have had some landscaping done or renovations to the property. BEAUTIFUL HOME UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND SUPER BOAT HOUSE This is one of the several homes that I photogra...

One of the pleasures of fall is getting out on the water to see the beautiful fall colors.  Today was such a day.  Dockside Realty held its Annual Fall Flotilla.  We had super weather, bright sunshine much of the time and not a bit of rain in sight. Topping off the day was a nice turnout and a very tasty lunch in a wonderful setting.  We dined outside on the patio and the beach area of a lovely home that is currently on the market in Twin Lakes, a subdivision that has access to both sides of Lake Anna.                 The photo on the left was taken in the early spring so it  does not show the colorful leaves that we were lucky enough to see today.  However, it is the beach where some of our guests had lunch today.  This is just one of many lovely homes that we saw today as well as only...

My knight in, not so, shining armor was almost really mine. A few years ago I had a call to come and list a house.  When I went over we walked the lot and found something quite remarkable.  In the midst of some very thick woods was a surprise to the owner.  Now mind you this owner had only owned the property for one month. What was discovered was a knight.  A great big knight.  Perhaps this photo will help you grasp the size of this sentry. I think I was giving him a hug. HUGGING "my" KNIGHT AT LAKE ANNA I was instantly enamored and fortunately the owner was not.  He was moving and didn't care about it.  He offered it to me if I wanted to pay to have it moved.  My husband, Jim Bleecker, graduated from West Point and they are called the Black Knights.  I thought it would be wonderful to ...

We're getting all geared up for June 4, 2011 when Dockside Realty, along with the other seven real estate companies at Lake Anna, will be holding a lake-wide open house. We are inviting those that may have an interest in purchasing a home at Lake Anna and we also encourage those that are property owners here to come and take a look as well.  Here is an opportunity to view a number of different styles and price ranges which will provide you with a good sense of our current market. This is the first time all eight companies are working together to hold such an event.  With everyone on board we are aiming to make it a huge success.   Lake Anna's Open House Day is being held in conjunction with the National Association of REALTORS® which is sponsoring open houses across the country, in fact...

Lake Anna is growing and so is Dockside Realty.   Dockside Realty will be opening its second office shortly.  Dockside is growing right along with the Lake Anna community and as a result Dave Moberly, Dockside's owner, realized that the time was right to provide clients with another convenient location, this time at New Bridge Landing.  The main office will remain on the shores of Lake Anna, at High Point Marina, where it has been providing exceptional service to clients since 1994.  The new office by Food Lion will handle rentals and sales while the main office, near the 208 Bridge, will continue to offer full service to buyers and sellers.  Dockside Realty has the largest rental department at Lake Anna.  It has grown significantly through the years and handles a wide variety of homes....

Today I took photos of a new listing.  I really like the house which makes it a pleasure to list.  It is always a bit more exciting when you like the property you are presenting for sale.  One of the things I liked most about this property is the garden.  One of the owners is a Master Gardener* and her garden is a testament to the designation she has earned. Homes with beautiful landscaping are a pleasure to photograph and a pleasure to show.  However, some buyers appreciate what has been done but have a concern that it may require too much work to maintain the gardens. Fortunately, this particular garden has been nurtured to be much more self-sustaining than many.  It is absolutely loaded with perennials ensuring beauty year after year.  The beds have been mulched so well, again year a...

LAKE ANNA Water Access Homes SOLD 1st Qtr. 2011. There were 15 water access homes sold during the first quarter of 2011. During this same period in 2010, eight homes sold almost half the number sold this year. That certainly is a good sign and will hopefully continue into the second quarter and beyond. Water access homes, which are off water homes within a Lake Anna subdivision, have access to the lake through a common area in that particular subdivision. Each lake community has its own common area located on a waterfront lot. If the subdivision has only waterfront properties it probably has only a ramp enabling property owners to launch their boats into the lake.       Communities with access properties will also have a common area which contains a ramp and, almost always, boat slips. ...

The public is invited to attend a meeting to be held by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation at the Dominion Resource Building at 1022 Haley Drive off Kentucky Springs Road (Rt. 652) Mineral, VA.  The purpose of the meeting is to discuss plans for Lake Anna State Park.  The management plan for the park is being updated and the public is encouraged to attend this meeting and to offer suggestions. LAKE ANNA STATE PARK This is a very good opportunity to learn more about future plans for Lake Anna State Park and to perhaps have some input as well. The meeting will be held April 25 at 6:00 p.m. and, as mentioned, will be open to the public. Opened in 1983, the park covers 2,810 acres with plenty of shoreline along Lake Anna.  We are so fortunate to have this great asset her...

Where do you grocery shop at Lake Anna?  For years I've been asked this question as I drove buyers around Lake Anna looking at property.  It was very apparent that we did not have a large supermarket at the lake.  Although I would always tell them about the convenience stores scattered around the lake but the complete answer, of course, was to go to Louisa, Fredericksburg, or some of the other cities that surround (but not too closely) Lake Anna.  Now I have a completely different answer for buyers. That is why there was so much excitement surrounding the thought of a supermarket coming to Lake Anna.   For many years we had heard that there might be a store built so when this one was first announced there may have been some skepticism.  Thankfully it was true and not only a supermarket ...

Sometimes I am asked why we chose to move to Lake Anna. Jobs did not bring us here nor did children or parents. We are here simply because it is exactly the type of place both my husband and I have imagined as an ideal home. We each had our separate dreams and desires and happily they were the same. They all added up to being near water, especially a lake. For us Lake Anna was the perfect choice. We loved the location, the peacefulness, the rural character of the surrounding area, and definitely the size and beauty of Lake Anna. Lake Anna has been home now for almost 19 years. This is the longest I have ever lived in one spot in my entire life. I cannot think of a better place.   Even when not on the water, just looking out my windows or driving across one of the several bridges around ...

There's a saying, "Good things come to those who wait". That is becoming true for those that have waited a long time to have property here at Lake Anna that will accommodate their desire to be near the water, have a golf course at hand, and the opportunity to board their horses very close to home. With Cutalong's ribbon cutting ceremony behind us, it looks as though we will be able to help all of those wanting these "good things".     Phase I will be ready within a few weeks and includes 19 estate-size lots between 5-8 acres.  Now is the time to seriously consider purchasing one of these lots if you want to take advantage of the predevelopment pricing.  These lots are being offered between $145,000 to $209,000.  Interested?  Let me know. Yes, there will be many more lots but most of the...

How does a boat tour of Lake Anna sound to you? Do you think it might be something you would really enjoy? If you think so you might want to sign up for Dockside Realty’s Spring Flotilla scheduled for Saturday, May 14. I’ll tell you how below. Actual invitations will be going out towards the end of April so you will still have plenty of time to see if you can fit it in your schedule. Hopefully you can! The Spring Flotilla explores the main side of Lake Anna and includes stops at several waterfront homes to enable guests an opportunity to see a range of houses. Although we will cover a lot of territory we will not see all of the 9400 acres which makes up this side of the lake. Don’t worry though you will have an opportunity to see many of the shoreline amenities (marinas, restaurants, co...

What else is coming to Lake Anna? Change has come slowly to Lake Anna and many of us have not minded this one bit.  Lake Anna is located in a very interesting spot.  It is in Central Virginia making it an easy drive to a number of places such as Richmond (the capitol of the Commonwealth), Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, and not even that far from Washington, D.C.  Yet, it is in a very rural area.  I'd say we have the best of both worlds. Now some changes are coming.  Through the years we have seen some signs of growth now and then.  Two nurseries have been established and provide many of the Lake Anna residents with great choices for landscaping their yards.  We certainly have marinas where we are able to not only buy boats but all of the paraphernalia that goes with life on a lake.  M...

Where do you go grocery shopping at Lake Anna?  Lake Anna has been waiting a LONG, LONG TIME to have a different answer to that question.  Now the time is almost here.  Before we know it the grand opening will be underway at the new Food Lion supermarket in our community.  Why is this such a big event?  Well, Lake Anna was created in 1972.  It was to take about three years to fill.  Instead Hurricane Agnes came along and dumped enough water into the "big hole" and the lake was born.  From then to now folks have gotten along with driving a distance for their big grocery shopping. We've been fortunate to have several small mom and pop shops around the lake that have taken very good care of us.  They've been great and will continue to serve our needs but they have never been a substitute f...
