Water views! I kind of like the green! Three acres in Virginia. Circa 1890. $265,000

November 12, 2021

I think I like the green exterior! There are water views from this house. The home was built in 1890. It is located on three acres in Reedville, Virginia. There is a covered wrap around porch, some hardwood floors and a full attic. I bet there are hardwood floors underneath the carpeting. The home was built by a sea captain. The listing says there is a pool, but I don’t see any signs of one, even on satellite view. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,973 square feet. $265,000
