Princess Anne, MD   Offered for sale at $249,900

This charming Victorian home in the Princess Anne historic district features modern updates combined with historic craftmanship, including built-in bookshelves and wall units (painted cream color) with Gothic-arch detailing, finely-crafted crown, wainscoting and many other special details throughout.

The home is currently operating as a bed and breakfast. However, it is being sold as a fully furnished residential home, which may be used as a bed and breakfast if you choose to do so under your own business name. It is NOT being sold as a transferable business, only as a furnished home which has been given a special exception B and B designation (zoned R-2).

A bonus feature at no additional cost is all antique and upscale furnishings, accessories, original artwork, linens and kitchenware included with full-price purchase of home if so desired.

This 1885 Victorian home sits on 1/3 acre corner lot with mature trees and colorful perennial landscaping.
Elegant historic brick walkways and custom-crafted Gothic arbor and picket fence lead one into the spacious front porch and antique front door, with keyless code lock. [Unlike flimsy picket fences on the market today using thin woods and staples, this fence was custom made using solid ½” thick pickets attached to 2 x 4s, with stainless screws; it is attached to sturdy posts with segmented hardware allowing simple release of each 6 ft. segment for re-painting or access to yard by large equipment.]
