Last weekend my father and I stopped by the former home of friends of his. They have moved on to a new life in Florida and have put this house on the market. It is in the small courthouse town of Accomac, on Virginia's Eastern Shore, and sits on over three acres of sandy loam that will grow just about anything (I've been eating fresh asparagus from their garden all week). The house is surrounded by boxwood and Poncirus hedges, there are large trees and shrubs, plus many beds for perennials. There are also several outbuildings, including gardening sheds, an old schoolhouse, and a large garage/workshop that might induce grown men (and some women) to drool. The house itself is over 120 years old and has 4 bedrooms, and 3 and a half baths, and if you are interested all the particulars are on Zillow. I'm not on commission; I just like old houses and big gardens.
