Queen Anne Architecture at its finest! 
6 miles from the Crisfield waterfront.

This Historic House for Sale, located on the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland, is a Queen Ann Victorian, built in 1892 has 2200 square feet, its original slate roof, 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, front parlor, back parlor, country kitchen, formal dining room, a full basement with concrete foundation, and floored attic, wrap around porch, two out-buildings and small pond.  It sits on 0.7 acres of property off the main road in the small Eastern Shore hamlet of Marion Station, located in rural Somerset County, Maryland.

The most unique feature about the Vance Miles house is that only three families have ever occupied it - two of those families for 50+ years each.  The owners gradually updated and maintained the house, but kept it's unique features in tact.  If you are looking for a historic home that retains its original features without exploitation over the years, this home is a stellar example.

WOOD TRIM - All wood trim - irreplaceable by today's standards - is original and complete.  The first floor wood trim around doorways, windows, staircase, etc. is all oak and pine and has NEVER BEEN PAINTED.  The newel post on the stairway is quite ornate and balusters and handrail are original with no prior painting.  The wood trim on the second floor is less ornate and painted white - but is all original and matching.

PERIOD FIXTURES - Though the electrical system has been updated, the house still retains several of the old "push button" switches and period light fixtures that date back to the turn of the century.

RADIATORS - Each room still has its original ornate, cast iron radiator with brass fittings.  There are nine radiators total and only one is non-functioning.  They provide excellent, efficient heat.  Furnace is oil fired and less than 10 years old.

WINDOWS - There are a total of 30 windows (including two leaded glass) that draw in enormous light and bring the outdoors of mature magnolia, pecan, crepe myrtle and maple trees inside.  Windows are in their original frames and some original glass remains.  Glass is the larger 6 windows measures 60" high X 44" wide.  For energy efficiency, storm window and screens have been added.
