Welcome home to this lovingly maintained Victorian farmhouse. Immediately upon first gaze, realize the years of history and charm that come along with this original family-owned and built home.
This four bedroom, one and one half bath home is a dead ringer for Joanna Gaines and Magnolia Home with near endless original, historic character and patina that simply can’t be replicated. Move-in ready or renovate, it’s your dream to live. The custom built trim, and built-in cabinets warm the home while modern upgrades ensure your worry-free comfort for years to come.
From the wrap-around porches that simply beg for a good book or a great friend; stepping inside be greeted by the guilded entry foyer and show-stopping custom stairway. This traditional main floor features a parlor/living room with fire place and large windows, an updated galley kitchen and main level laundry with formal dining room, centrally located powder bath, and large natural light filled family room with another fireplace. You can’t miss the fireplace featuring an irreplaceable, ornate hand-lathed and carved mantle. Original hardwood floors and architectural finishes gleam from years of heart-felt care and character.
Stepping upstairs, be amazed by the dynamic architectural accents and stylings from handmade wood trim and transom windows featuring original hardware, to chandeliers and hand finished custom plaster archways. Three large, private bedrooms offer plenty of space, while a fourth bedroom or office/nursery off of the master enjoys a separate hall entrance to use as you see fit. The full bath on the upper level has an adjacent sitting room which could easily be finished into second full bath. Just off of the sitting room, a comfortably sized 2nd floor balcony overlooks the grounds and rolling hills of Middletown Valley with a breathtaking Braddock Mountain backdrop. An attic access off the fourth bedroom features a full size stairwell for ease of potentially finishing the large attic. Attic is currently great for storage and would make an unsurpassed artist’s loft, playroom, additional bedrooms or simply more square footage to use as you see fit and character that easily matches the rest of this one-of-a-kind farmhouse.
A rear staircase descends from upper level hallway to kitchen increasing character, history and overall modern flow of the home. Stepping outside from the kitchen, a well-appointed patio is great for grilling, socializing or finding yet another quaint space to enjoy the solitude of your home. The patio overlooks a summer kitchen which calls out for a designer finish to add more space to enjoy friends, family, and the simple pleasures of a life well lived!
With more than one acre of grounds and open space, backing to Richland Golf Course, you’re in the heart of sought-after Middletown, yet just outside of town taxes with views that can’t be beat featuring pastoral Frederick County farmland and green parkspace, never to be developed. Professionally landscaped and manicured flower beds and mature trees complete the lovely nature of this gorgeous lot. Additional large outbuildings can be left standing as-is or repurposed for your own unique use.
