January 7, 2021

The local boat ramp is only five minutes away! Located out at the eastern shore of Virginia. “Gable Cottage” was built in 1840. It is located on .33 acres in Accomac, Virginia. The home could use some undoing of past renovations. I’m hopeful there are hardwood floors underneath the carpeting in the house. The home is situated on a private lot with an open field across the road. The house has six gables and there is a detached garage on the property. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,000 square feet. $189,900

This home features four bedrooms and two full baths. Three bedrooms are upstairs (with a walk-in closet), and one is downstairs. One full bath is on each floor. The kitchen features a center island with granite counter and plenty of space for a large table as well. A laundry room is next to kitchen for convenience. The rear addition is newer with sliding glass doors leading to a private fenced-in courtyard (perfect for pets). The entire home has been fixed up and is move-in ready. A single car detached garage offers space for storage or workshop. This house is located five minutes from Accawmacke Elementary (best elementary school on the Shore!).
