Have you ever dreamt of refurbishing an old, historic building and making it completely your own?

Maybe you could open a shop or a restaurant on the first floor and live above it? Well, now your dream can become a reality because this gorgeous, recently renovated, gem of a building can be yours in Cape Charles, Virginia. It’s been lovingly called The Old Firehouse, and it's now for sale. 

Cape Charles is about a four-hour drive from Washington, D.C., and if you’ve been looking for an opportunity to escape the city (even if just for part of the year), this is the perfect distance away. The town is a sleepy, beachy place -- with a population of just over 1,000 people -- where you’re sure to know your neighbors (an aspect that may actually help you with your business endeavors if you purchase this property). 

A little bit about this Cape Charles property ...

Currently listed at $664,000, the old firehouse is located on 10 Peach Street in Cape Charles, Virginia 23310. It’s been on the market since May. The first floor has already been converted into a restaurant set-up, with seating available for up to 70 patrons. The second floor “consists of a 2200 square feet New York loft-style apartment that offers an unsurpassed view of the harbor & breathtaking sunsets over the Chesapeake Bay.” And the third floor is renovated into a penthouse suite with a private roof deck -- with, of course, more water views.

If you love history, this place will have an even bigger appeal to you. It was built in 1921, and during this renovation, there was a concerted effort to retain much of the original structure and façade. Due to its significance in the town, the property has been featured in Coastal Living Magazine and is a popular attraction amongst the city’s tourists. 

Plus, a nickname like “The Old Firehouse” would actually make the perfect name for a restaurant, right?
