February 6, 2024

This is a cute house! I love a house with a staircase in the kitchen. The home was built in 1890. It is located on .28 acre in Crisfield, Maryland. The house features a covered front porch, some hardwood floors, two staircases and a cute kitchen. Not a fan of some of the flooring, but the house looks to be well maintained. There is a chicken coop out back and a detached storage building. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,540 square feet. $217,900
