"This vintage charmer is tucked on a quiet side street in the Queen Anne~s County town of Crumpton. The historic village is located on a bend of the Chester River, and there~s a small community beach and boat ramp where you can put in a kayak or canoe.

There~s also a dining room, laundry room, and full bath downstairs. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms and a half bath.
