STUNNING 'period' historic home in the very heart of the heart of downtown Frederick, 2nd Street just a block from Market Street. Superb location! Walk to restaurants, bistros, parks, library, shops, churches, theater, and more. This all-brick home is full of original charm and character, from the double entry and foyer stained glass doors and intricately tiled floor, to the high 12+ foot ceilings, tall doors, wood trim with rosettes and transoms, and beautiful balustrade staircase. The main level has a huge light-filled living room with fireplace, expansive dining room, library with fireplace, built-ins, and adjacent office or sitting room; plus powder room and rear eat-in kitchen with a separate spacious dining room to accommodate your largest DR furniture. Upstairs there is a huge light-filled MBR, intricately hand carved soapstone mantle, Master Bath including soaking tub and windows everywhere. Additional bedrooms are generously sized, one with a balcony; and hall bath. Original trim is everywhere, plus ceiling medallions on the main level. The rear courtyard is a MUST SEE! Masonry and stone walls, oval yard with brick walkway all around it, stunning and expansive brick patio and sitting area, many perennials, just absolutely gorgeous. *RARE* two-car garage, with additional parking space right in front of the garage, on N. Court St, hidden area for trash and recycling containers, and more. All hardwood floors on the main level have just been refinished and are gleaming. A good deal of painting has been done. If all that is not enough, the basement has its own separate living quarters or an au-pair suite with kitchen, living room, bedroom and bath, ideal for family members/visiting guests/in-laws with private entrance.
