Published 8:12 pm Thursday, January 27, 2011

A $2.5-million jewel of the Suffolk real estate market has been offered for sale on Cherry Point Road near Chuckatuck. The home features more than 8,000 square feet of living space, including seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, a patio kitchen, a professional-sized basketball court and an Olympic-sized saltwater pool.

Fifty Realtors from several major Tidewater area real estate companies gathered for a brokers’ open house tour at 1106 Cherry Grove Road North in Suffolk recently.

A luncheon was hosted by Paula Tenenbaum, a Realtor with Long & Foster Real Estate and was catered by The Catering Place in Suffolk.

The contemporary brick ranch of 8,008 square feet, offered at $2.5 million, sits on a sprawling 12 acres of waterfront deep water and has room for horses, as well. The home includes seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, but it has all the amenities of resort-type living that could make it a perfect corporate retreat, inn, rehab center or spa, Tenenbaum said.

Activities include cruising up the James River, fishing off the private dock, playing basketball on the professional-sized court, taking a swim in the solar-heated Olympic-sized salt water pool or just relaxing in the eight-person hot tub.

Dinner can be grilled in the screened patio kitchen while guests shoot a game of pool or enjoy a football game on one of the 60-inch televisions.
