Captivating, historic semi-detached, circa 1880 brick home, one-half block from King Street, one block to the Potomac River/Waterfront Park, in the desirable SE quadrant.

This rarely available, dramatic 25-foot wide property was created from two separate homes (109 & 111) at the turn of this century. It is “Everything Old Town” — featuring a local artist’s interior wall murals, 9-foot exposed beamed ceilings, original hardwood floors, 3 wood-burning fireplaces, an upgraded kitchen and cozy breakfast room with a wood-burning fireplace and exposed brick.

Enter through one of two front doors into a double front parlor, each with a wood-burning fireplace and beautiful original wood floors, into a fabulously open main level featuring two additional seating areas and an inviting dining room. The upgraded kitchen features a Wolfe gas stove, cherry cabinets and granite counters with an island for social seating, as well as an adjoining cozy fireplace and breakfast/sitting room.

From the kitchen, French doors open to a roomy, private, stone-terraced landscaped courtyard and garden enhanced by 20-year-old indigenous grape vines. Returning inside, two separate staircases lead to a fabulous master bedroom & bath with a jacuzzi tub. The unusually large master suite offers double walk-in closets and a morning sitting room where you can enjoy your coffee and online news before stepping out for a breath of fresh air on the private outdoor balcony overlooking the terraced garden.

Exposed brick walls and a unique wood-paneled inset, that fits a king size bed. Two sun-drenched, generously proportioned front bedrooms, one with built-ins, and a full bath complete the second level. An exciting Old Town lifestyle is at your fingertips.
