SVN/Motleys is proud to present, via foreclosure, 2 commercial parcels totaling 8.704 ± AC located in Stafford County (VA) at the signalized intersection of U.S. Hwy. 1 and Port Aquia Dr. Both parcels are part of the Port Aquia Commercial District and are surrounded by hotels, shopping centers and restaurants; additionally, the Port Aquia townhouse subdivision is just 0.05 ± miles from the subject site. Don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity to develop retail, office, mini-storage, or a hotel in an area with high visibility and easy access!

Lot 1 totals 3.9651 AC (172,720 SF) and is located at the southwest quadrant of U.S. Hwy. 1 (Jefferson Davis Highway) and Port Aquia Dr. This is a wooded site with approximately 511’ of frontage on U.S. Hwy. 1 and 722’ of frontage on Port Aquia Dr.

Lot 2 totals 4.7391 AC (206,435 SF) and is located at the northwest quadrant of U.S. Hwy. 1 (Jefferson Davis Highway) and Port Aquia Dr. It is a wooded site with approximately 357’ of frontage on U.S. Hwy. 1 and 639’ of frontage on Port Aquia Dr.

Portions of the northern end of Lot 2 are encumbered by the Resource Protection Area of the Chesapeake Bay Act. The exact acreage of the encumbered area is unknown; however, development can be designed around these areas. Lot 2 is also encumbered with a small area of wetlands in the northwestern corner of the site which is outside the RPA. This area does not appear to impact the development of the site.

Both parcels are zoned Urban Commercial (B-2) by the County of Stafford. The purpose of this district is to designate appropriate areas for high intensity commercial uses intended to serve retail sales and service and business and professional service needs, at a regional or countywide scale.

Permitted uses for the two subject parcels include banks, child care centers, hotel/motels, convenience center, general and professional offices, low and medium intensity commercial retail uses, restaurants and mini-storage warehousing. Both parcels are restricted from the following uses: light warehouse, broadcasting stations, plumbing/electrical supply, auto sales and service, travel trailer parks, commercial kennel, nursery/greenhouse, lumber and building supply, machinery sales and service, dance hall or wholesaling.


The subject parcels are conveniently located between I-95 and U.S. Hwy. 1, just 14 ± miles north of Fredericksburg, VA and only 40 ± miles south of Washington, DC! Both parcels are also located less than 1.5 ± miles from Exit 143A: Garrisonville Rd on I-95, less than 3 ± miles to downtown Garrisonville, VA, less than 5 ± miles to downtown Stafford, VA, and are approximately 9 ± miles from the Quantico Marine Corps Base and 37 ± miles from Fort A.P. Hill.

Successful bidder's deposit of 10% of the final amount bid will be required. The successful bidder's deposit MUST be paid by CASH, CASHIER'S OR CERTIFIED CHECK at the foreclosure sale. Certified or cashier’s check is to be made payable to Hamill D. Jones, Jr., Substitute Trustee.

Buyer’s Premium:

A Buyer’s Premium of five percent (5%) will be added to the high bid for the real property and included in the total selling price paid by the buyer.  For example, if the successful bid on a given property is $100,000, the five percent buyer’s premium will equal $5,000, and the purchase price for the property will be $105,000.

No Broker Participation Acknowledgment Forms will be accepted at the auction site.


TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE WITH RESPECT TO ALL CLOSINGS!  The sale of the real estate must close no later than Thirty (30) days after the sale.  

Other Terms:  

The real estate will be conveyed by SPECIAL WARRANTY DEED, subject to all rights, reservations, leases, covenants, conditions, easements and restrictions superior to the Deed of Trust as they may lawfully affect the real estate.

The purchaser will be required to pay all closing costs except the grantor's recording tax. 

Real estate taxes will be prorated as of the date of sale. 

Risk of loss to the real estate will pass to the successful bidder upon acceptance of the bid by the Trustee.


All Bidding is open to the public without regard to race, color, sex, religion, or national origin.  As used in these conditions of sale, the term “the final bid” means the highest bid acknowledged by the auctioneer, and the term “purchase price” means the sum of the final bid plus the applicable buyer’s premium.  The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid or raise any bid which, in his opinion, is not commensurate with the value of the property being offered.  The auctioneer may advance the bidding at his absolute discretion and, in the event of any dispute between bidders, may determine the successful bidder or re-offer and resell the property in dispute. Should there be any dispute after the sale, the record of final sale shall be conclusive.

Bidder's Number:

Bid Execution:

Conditions of Default:

If successful bidder defaults in making settlement, the deposit paid by that defaulting successful bidder shall be forfeited and applied to the costs and expenses of the auction sale and then to the balance due under the applicable note, and the property purchased by such defaulting successful bidder may either be resold at the risk and expense of such party, or Substitute Trustee may accept the next highest available bid at the auction sale.  Such defaulting successful bidder shall be liable personally for any deficiency resulting from the resale of the property if sold at a lower price as well as for all costs, expenses, and attorneys’ fees in connection with such resale.  The forfeiture of such deposit shall not limit any rights or remedies of Substitute Trustee with respect to any such default. 

Controlling Law:

The respective rights and obligations of the parties with respect to the Conditions of Sale and the conduct of the auction shall be governed and interpreted by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia. By bidding at an auction, whether present in person or by agent, written bid, telephone, online or other means, the bidder shall be deemed to have consented to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
