This plaqued Greek Revival was built in stages between 1790 and 1850. The original Flounder became 3,400 square feet on two levels, and since this handsome classic has been carefully curated with respect for the past and for current living standards.
Grandeur prevails with the gas lighting fixtures, hand crafted mahogany front door and formal gallery foyer with regal staircase. The tall ceilings make large rooms grand, and with six remarkable fireplaces, double parlor with pocket doors and original cylinder glass windows the unique features are outstanding. The current caretakers have pristinely maintained and updated with exquisite craftsmanship of custom built-ins, a metal roof and two laundries. The expansive gathering room/kitchen was added in 2002 and in doing so a cistern was discovered to the City’s historians’ delight. The kitchen features heated flooring, a fireplace and wet bar.
There are four bedrooms and three updated full baths on the second level and below grade there is extensive storage (1,000 square feet) with second laundry. The brick patio with fountains allows for a private retreat. Located one block from King Street and in view of historic Christ Church, this is a modern-day purist’s dream.
