Description

Overlooking Windmill Hill Park on one of Old Town’s most sought-after blocks, this 5-bedroom stunner offers unobstructed panoramic views of the Potomac River. Built in 1820, this historic home was meticulously renovated with improvements that incorporate modern amenities while preserving its original charm. Original floors, interior trim, and windows have all been carefully restored to original conditions rarely found in historic homes. Top quality Farrow and Ball paint has been applied inside and out. An expanded kitchen boasts premium appliances, Italian Carrara marble, and radiant heated floors. Carefully hidden to preserve the home’s architectural integrity, six independent climate zones were added throughout to provide efficient comfort. A centrally located wood-burning fireplace in the dining room delivers natural heat and aesthetic appeal. Exposed historic brick, radiant heated floors, high ceilings, windows and a graduated exit stairwell will make this basement one of the most unique features of this home. With custom cabinetry and built-ins throughout, the overall layout is both cozy and convenient, incorporating plenty of storage such as his/her master bedroom closets and an attic for storage.
