Unique opportunity to own a classic Crescent Hill Victorian farmhouse that sits on double lot just over 1/2 an acre and features both a pool and a detached guest cottage. Originally built in 1875 by Samuel E. English and know as the ''Mansion House'', this property has only passed through the hands of 8 families in its entire 145 year history. As you approach the property you're welcomed by a beautiful covered brick porch that overlooks the spacious front yard and gazebo that are surrounded by a lush oversized hedge. Upon entering the foyer you'll notice the pristine hardwood floors that stretch throughout the home. To your left is the family room featuring built-in bookshelves and a wood burning fireplace with an exquisite mantel. To your right is the formal living room with more built-in bookshelves and a marvelous gas fireplace. As you pass the main staircase and make your way through the central hall you'll find the stately dining room with a gorgeous Hungarian glass chandelier and beautiful crown modeling. The rear portion of the home is where you'll find a formal half bath and the kitchen that opens to the lovely stone floored sunroom with views of the rear yard and brick terrace. This gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances, marble countertops, a large pantry and a wonderful brick wall that brings warmth to the crisp white cabinets. As you reach the second floor landing you'll find a private office/sleeping nook, a full hall bath with two sinks, and the laundry room. Back around the central staircase you'll pass two spacious bedrooms before entering the master suite. In here you'll find a comfortable sitting room with a gas fireplace that adjoins the main bedroom. The custom master bath features a marble tiled floor, dual sinks, a frameless glass shower, and a built-in makeup cabinet. Out on the rear brick terrace you'll find meticulously maintained boxwoods and a wonderful herb garden. Adjoining the terrace is the pool - the perfect spot for a refreshing dip on a warm summer day. The guest cottage resides next to the roomy two car garage and is complete with a kitchenette, living room, a full bath, and a bedroom. For any other questions please contact the listing agents.
