They established magnificent manors that became the prototypes for the area's aristocratic dwellings. They enjoyed a relaxing and distinctly regional way of life. The Tidewater tradition was born.
Now, the first true resort and master-planned community along the historic Potomac River captures the tranquil beauty and rich heritage of beloved Tidewater settlements. Just 30 miles south of the nation's capital, Potomac Shores is situated on a pristine peninsula with hundreds of blissful acres of hardwood forest and two miles of magical shoreline. As one of the few remaining stretches of undeveloped land along Virginia's coastline, this 2,000-acre riverfront retreat offers a rare juxtaposition of privacy and accessibility, relaxation and invigoration, for new homeowners and guests. Come discover the most beautifully crafted new homes in Northern Virginia.
