Silly question - but what is a "bold creek"? We are looking at real estate listings in VA and see this mentioned often. I googled it but could not find a definition. Is it just a creek?

Where in VA are you looking? I'm guessing that either an area or an actual creek (Must not be in NoVa that you are searching). I remember looking at NC ads and had to ask family there what a FROG was....

Central VA. We are looking at farms - with creeks. Just not sure how a "bold creek" is different.

Often real estate descriptions will list a creek as a feature only to have a trickle of water that only flows during very wet weather. My experience has been that a bold creek is a creek that flows year round and is generally spring fed. My creek Davis Creek fits that description and was described that way when I purchased my home. Keep in mind that the creek on my property is only 3 feet wide normally and not much deeper than 3 to 4 inches, it does run continuously throughout the year. It has also been as high as 4 feet during my tenure as the owner of the property and is famous for epic flooding in 1969 when it was over 1/4 mile wide according to my 94-year-old neighbor.

To me, the term "bold creek" may not only refer to a year-round creek, but also a creek that may overrun its banks during periods of high rain or snow melt. You may want to ask about flood plains in the vicinity of a property with a bold creek.

There is a real estate forum with a real estate professional sub-forum. You may want to ask your question there too.
