Property Description:

Offers will be reviewed on Monday, April 4th at 3:00 p.m. Circa 1820, this beautifully preserved and enhanced historic home in the Southeast quadrant offers 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 4 fireplaces, original floors, detailed moldings, and two original staircases. Sunshine pours into the gracious living room with two windows and French doors. The house is totally detached from the dining room to the back with windows lining the south side of this inviting dining space. The heart of the house is the family room open to the kitchen, graced by a fireplace, built-in glass front cabinets and a stunning breakfast room overlooks the magnificent garden. Soapstone countertops, Bosch appliances, a French door style refrigerator, and soft close custom cabinets will please the gourmet chef. Many south facing windows allow endless natural light flowing to this family room-kitchen. The breakfast room offers a convenient built-in bookcase and desk area in addition to a wall of tall windows facing the French inspired garden. The second level presents a spacious guest suite featuring a dressing room with multiple closets and a full bath with a seamless glass shower. A skylight and multiple windows illuminate the additional bedroom or office boasting a fireplace, hardwood floors, and custom built-ins which provide a comfortable setting for family and guests. The primary bedroom with vaulted ceilings is awash in natural light from large windows with plantation shutters and custom cabinetry for additional storage. Savor the outdoors or dine al fresco in the peaceful rear garden oasis. Elements of symmetry and stone surfaces are evident in the professionally designed, two level garden. Lined with mature plantings one will find boxwood, daphne odura, camellia, lenten roses, hostas and climbing hydrangeas. Making this home even more irresistible is its prime location just a short walk to Old Town’s fine shops, restaurants, and the Potomac River.
