Incredible location! Enjoy the luxury of modern construction connecting you to all the amenities and festivities of downtown historic Chestertown! This eleven year old home on a quarter+ acre lot abuts the historic district line! It is just steps away from new custom homes, the Gilchrest Trail, and the new Lawrence Preserve, an eight and a half acre nature center in progress. Surrounded by beautiful indigenous landscaping, this home is deceptively understated. And what a nice surprise! A dramatic 18' ceiling with skylights in the great room! Add a garage, ample off street parking and a first floor primary bedroom suite, and you realize how rare this special home is in this terrific downtown Chestertown location!
As you approach, you'll cross solid mahogany decking on the wrap around porch and enter a gracious private entry hall with a handy parlor/den on the right. Continuing past the stairs, note the convenient floor plan with the garage, mudroom, laundry, and half bath on the left and the kitchen on the right leading to the dining area, great room and master suite. There are generous ceiling heights throughout with an overlook to the great room from the upstairs lounge. Before heading upstairs, the first floor has plenty to explore with exterior doors on all four sides of the house leading to charming porches with private garden views. What a wonderful traffic flow throughout this property. It really invites you outside! The great room exits through a center hinge patio door to a screened porch. Imagine the breezy bliss of keeping that door open in fine weather! In winter, enjoy the easy cozy warmth of the Vermont Castings pellet stove indoors. The dining area is generously sized for comfortable daily living or large gatherings. It is perfectly placed in the heart of the home, connecting the great room to the kitchen. The kitchen door exits to the far side of the front wrap-around porch which gets sunset rays. Across the front hall, the mudroom door exits to a two story porch on the town side of the house. Also on the first floor, the primary bedroom suite enjoys filtered morning sun and boasts a vaulted ceiling and a well appointed ensuite bath. Upstairs, you'll find a generous lounge/den that overlooks the great room. There are three private rooms upstairs (two with closets and one without), a full hall bath and an outdoor balcony also accessible from the hall.
Additional Storage: There is full attic space accessible with pull down stairs, a surprisingly nice encapsulated crawl space that the current owner uses for extra storage and a nice outdoor shed.
In addition to the garage, there is ample parking in the paved driveway and an extra gravel parking spot by the mailbox
The gorgeous Chesapeake Bay-friendly landscape is well established & maintained with gardens designed for privacy, multi-seasonal interest, and wildlife viewing.
