How stinking cute is this?! And that kitchen sink is fabulous. This would be such a simple life. Listing agent Holly Fisher sent this to us thinking we would all like to see it. She was right! You can call her about this house at 757-404-5387. Located in the Silver Beach area of Virginia. That area was long owned by the well known Kellam family. Mr. Kellam sold off small parcels of land surrounding his main home so his buddies could have fishing cottages. Since then, the transfer of ownership has been private or between families, until now! So if you like this one, better act fast! Located just north of Cape Charles and just south of Onancock Wharf and Villages. Considered a micro cottage. It is one bedroom, one bathroom, and 696 square feet. $189,000
