Franktown

Franktown, Virginia Real Estate

A tiny Bayside village, Franktown brings you back to the slow pace of yesteryear where folks sit out on gracious front porches and wave to friends passing by. Homes are primarily circa late 1800’s and have been maintained in beautiful condition. Most are set well back from the street on large lots with graceful mature shade trees and rolling green lawns. The tiny “Town Hall”, about the size of a powder room, once a post office, always makes us smile and it brings to mind the Jeffersonian theory of government, that least is best. Residents dress it up with flags and finery for holidays large and small. Franktown boasts several well-dash;known historic homes including “Crystal Palace”, a beautiful Georgian brick home once owned by Judge Lankford after whom the Shore’s main north-dash;south highway is named. Life in Franktown today is pretty much the same as it was a century ago–relaxed and friendly. Just outside the village proper are several small upscale waterfront neighborhoods with custom homes overlooking broad salt waters with backyard docks and easy boat access to the Chesapeake Bay, great neighborhoods to live in and enjoy the Eastern Shore’s unique coastal lifestyle. And to make the sweet Franktown life even sweeter, visit the Holly Grove Vineyard and sample their handcrafted, award winning wines. Cheers!
