We’ve looked at real estate in Crisfield several times over the years. It’s a quaint fishing village on the Chesapeake Bay and has many older homes, a hospital and the only Dollar Store on waterfront property that I’ve ever come across. When the town was settled, the seafood packing houses and homes were built on pilings over the marshland and water. Throughout the decades the low-lying land was filled in with oyster shells, so most of mid-town over to the docks are lying on a man-made bed of shells. That can cause flooding in town, so buyers need to beware.
While you would have to perform due diligence, this circa 1900 home is situated outside of Crisfield, so perhaps flooding isn’t as much of an issue. This great home has 1.33 acres brimming with wildlife. I’m thinking it is a Greek Revival with a later addition. In any event, it’s a double gabled beauty that really only seems to need some finishing touches. The exterior features a front door with sidelights and a transom, Palladian windows and end corner columns. Inside, the home has hardwood floors, French doors, original mantels and large sunlit rooms. Notice the clawfoot tub and restorable staircase. And aren’t the bedrooms beautiful? They look like they came out of a magazine. I don’t know which one I like best.
Crisfield has one of the largest marinas on the East Coast, so there are amazing boating and fishing opportunities here, as well as hunting, hiking and historical sites to visit. This house has so many possibilities. It could be a great gathering place as a summer home, a wonderful primary residence, a B&B, or even a vacation rental on VRBO.
