I’m finding so many cheap wonderful homes that I might have to change the name of this blog from Old Houses Under $50,000 to Old Houses Under $30,000 pretty soon. If you liked yesterday’s South Jersey farmhouse near the beaches, then you’ll adore this Maryland farmhouse just 20 minutes from Assateague State Park beaches where the wild ponies roam. The exterior is picture perfect with its red metal roof and matching red shutters, wraparound porch, porch millwork, white picket fence and garden full of daffodils and day lilies! And did I mention its lovely country location amidst well-kept older homes and across the street from a quaint country church? Newark’s population is less than 400 people. Google Map the area, and you’ll fall in love!
The front porch of this circa 1920 farmhouse is in good shape, which is unusual. Porches are normally the first thing to deteriorate. You’ll notice water damage on the first floor, but the roof looks good. The front door opens into a large foyer with a great staircase and a unique mural. Hardwood floors, a fabulous fireplace mantel and a spacious kitchen are awaiting restoration. Add a second bathroom, and, like yesterday’s farmhouse, this home would make a terrific summer house or primary residence.
