The home itself is steeped in history. The earliest portion was built in 1809 and consisted of just two rooms and the cellar. There were significant additions in 1898, 1953, and 2010. Property received designation from the Frederick County Landmarks Foundation, Inc.
Comfortable and spacious, the home presently has approximately 3,400 finished square feet above grade, plus a 400 square foot STUDIO APARTMENT. There are a total of five bedrooms, three and one half baths.
In 2010, the current owners completed an extensive renovation including additions. The renovation included new 50-year architectural shingle roof, hardie plank added to the existing cedar shake siding, new wiring (400 amp electrical service), plumbing, new HVAC, forty-four new windows, country-sized custom gourmet kitchen, and much more! However, the charm and character of the structure have not been replaced, including the beautiful heart of chestnut trim, red oak floors, heartwood pine paneling and chestnut wood staircases.
Additional living spaces include the spacious "magical" third floor finished attic space which could be a memorable playroom for children or a quiet hide-away yoga studio. The architecturally pleasing detached two-car garage is easily accessed, in all types of weather, through the covered breezeway from the mudroom. The second level of this building has been finished into a four hundred square foot flex-space. The full studio living area could be utilized as an office with direct exterior access, a special area for guests or family members, or a private get-away for the home owners. In the colder months, the warm and inviting den is perfect with wood-burning fireplace. The formal dining room is ideal for family holiday gatherings.
The outdoor living spaces are fabulous as well. Expansive stone patio adjoining breezeway is perfect for three-season entertaining. The gracious front porch and swing have amazing views of the mountains and surrounding gardens and landscaping. To the rear of the house there is a charming stone ice house.
