    Not far from the Chesapeake Bay. Gorgeous area.

    Would love to see more interior shots of the house. This just simply could be a nice, cozy house with lots of possibilities especially if more acreage was purchased. I see houses like this and my mind just starts racing with ideas and what could be done in the right hands.

    I was going to comment on the beauty of the grounds — and then I saw the kitchen. Wonderful!

    This is a sad little home that needs someone to put some TLC into it. Reminds me of one of my favorite stories as a child called ‘The Little House’. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DFM6COS/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?ie=UTF8&btkr=1

    Was I the only one who noticed the tiles in middle of kitchen was buckled??? For the price, not a biggie because you expect TLC!

    As others have said, more photos would provide a better idea of the general condition of this house. It’s relatively small with 1,638 Sq. feet but it does have outbuildings, and a 2.2 acre lot so one could take the house and use it as an expansion point for a larger residence or as a guest house alongside a newer home. As for stylistic details, not many are evident although the columned mantel with the Colonial Revival wreath picked out in green is typical of the late 1890’s to 1910. A better look at the staircase newel would also provide an idea about age. I suspect that the house may actually be older than from 1900’s but some deed records and other research would be needed for a more accurate idea. Seems very reasonably priced for the lot size and outbuildings.

    Me too….love the kitchen and the out buildings.

  10. I want it! What is the area like?

    For that little money, I would buy it just for the setting. How beautiful! And the house looks totally salvageable too. 😉

    Just checked the taxes and not bad…less than $600.00 a year.

    This home is only about an hour or two from Richmond. There is an old Girl Scout camp in the area that I attended as a girl. The area is beautiful and a stone’s throw away from the Bay and multiple rivers.The area is fairly remote, but would be a great get-away with some restoration. Not too far down the road is Reedville on the water. It was the former hub of menhaden fishing industry. There are some beautifully restored Victorian sea captain homes in the area, some restaurants and a small museum. You can also catch a seasonal tour boat to Tangier Island.There the native islanders speak with the old English dialect.

    Reminds me of the house my aunt had in Cumberland. And I love it! I see a hen house, a pig pen, etc. If I could definitely would!

    Looks like someone started to renovate, then ran out of money once they fixed the living room. It would be a lot of work, some of it pricey, but I’ve seen far, far worse on here for that price. The immediate value would be found in those outbuildings. They don’t look that bad, you could probably fix them up pretty easy. Then you could rent them out to those weirdos who keep chickens and pigs as pets. Use that money to pay for repairs to the house.

    I called about it wanted to buy it but the realtor never called me back. And then all of a sudden it was off the market. It was exactly what I was looking for and wanted.

    If it goes back for sale I would love to know.
