Description

This distinguished residence with private parking is in the heart of Chestertown's desirable historic district! Originally built for socialite & suffragist Hope Wickes in 1885, this comfortable historic home was given a new modern life and two story addition by renowned local architect Peter Newlin in 1990. It has been lovingly maintained and lived-in by the same owner since the renovation. Unique architectural details have been preserved and respected in the redesign of the home. The additions include a working wood fireplace in the living room, the 2nd floor primary bedroom suite with vaulted ceiling, and the modern kitchen. The U shaped kitchen with stainless appliances features plenty of natural light, an island counter and a peninsula counter overlooking a delightful cozy space with french doors to the yard. This inviting breakfast nook could easily be configured for lounging or dining as you like. Leave the french doors open in fine weather for indoor/outdoor entertaining with an uninterrupted flow to the brick patio nestled in the garden! There is also a small covered rear porch entryway to kick off your shoes or put down your bags. When entering from the front of the home, the architect took out some walls to create a more open space and to delineate an Entry Hall from the Living room with fireplace. The formal dining room is in the center of the home just past The 19th century staircase located in the living room. The three story painted staircase is simple, bright, and whimsical with massive conical finials and trim. It's painted cream to reflect the natural light emanating from windows added on three levels by the architect. These narrow vertical windows repeat vertical lines from the rear addition; relating the old and the new for a cohesive design! Upstairs, the 2nd floor landing connects to a hall bath, the front bedroom, the library, or continue up to the third floor bedroom. The primary bedroom is on the second floor in the rear of the home, through the Library. It has beautiful exposed beam details in the vaulted ceiling, lots of closet space, a large window seat with room for a chair or two, and a simple but functional ensuite bath with skylight. Pass through the library to get back to the stairs. The library is a large versatile room currently being used as a working art studio. It features built in book shelves, skylights, an office nook and a laundry nook both concealed behind doors when not in use! Because the Library connects the second story landing to the primary bedroom, this room could also be a nursery, office, den, media room, etc. to suit your needs! The front bedroom on the second floor is an original beauty with hardwood floors, and a bay window nook big enough for a desk. The third floor was probably an attic originally. It is finished and carpeted and used as a bedroom (without a closet) by the current owner. Highlights include: Desirable North Queen Street location central to historic district amenities! Off Street parking, storage shed, three bedrooms, two and a half baths, wood floors, central air, exposed beams, window seats, wood burning fireplace, versatile layout, historic features & architect designed renovation. The large, deep back yard that connects the property to Court Street (Lawyer's Row) offers possibilities for expansion that might be explored. Check with the town to see if your vision is a possibility.
