With a cinchy half-mile walk, you are at that sparkling Frankfort beach and pier, strolling the port town’s boutiques, swinging by the grocery store for a few things. Heck, even the hospital’s award-winning emergency room is blocks away if you twist an ankle. Wooded lot gives a countryside feel, if you like that vibe with your in-town-living. Three bedrooms, 1,500 square feet, $179,000.
