I love that porch! Just one mile away from Hallieford Beach. This home was built in 1897. It is located on 4.97 acres in Cobbs Creek, Virginia in Mathews County. The home features a wrap around porch with gingerbread trim, baseboards, french doors and built-ins. If it were my house I would go in and try to undo some of the renovations. There is an enclosed porch and several outbuildings. Three bedrooms, four bathrooms and 2,246 square feet. $275,000
