Don’t pass this one up! It is in a class all by itself. Built circa 1790, this home has a long history. Originally a post office and general store accessible by land or boat, it is truly a one-of-a-kind river retreat located on the Severn River. The construction and interior style with fresh paint will pique your creative passion. Must see this very unique property, where you can boat, ski & fish in your front yard and feel you’re on vacation all the time! ****Be sure to ask your agent for the write-up by the seller of this property’s history!!****
