Located in Easton, a small town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland (recently hailed as the new “Hamptons” of the Chesapeake Bay by Forbes), this circa 1880 home has undergone a top-to-bottom renovation that preserved many original architectural details, with updates for contemporary living.

Although the brick house measures just over 1,000 square feet and features one bedroom and one bath, the charming jewel box boasts a flowing floorplan that incorporates a bright living room with fireplace, formal dining, and a spacious kitchen illuminated by a mahogany skylight.

Upstairs, there’s a master bedroom that connects to an ensuite bathroom with a clawfoot tub and wainscoting, as well as a den that opens directly onto what could only be described as a fabulous roof deck.

Gorgeous woodwork is found throughout the residence: Hardwood floors, handsome door and window frames, and, in the kitchen, a tongue-and-groove ceiling and cabinetry add warmth.

As for outdoor space, a landscaped yard and covered front porch (in addition to the aforementioned roof deck) round out the property. Located at 118 South Street, it’s offered at $267,500.
