The antique heart pine flooring carries into the family room with fireplace + bookcases. A second doorway leads to the dining room, large by Old Town standards, which can easily provide seating for a table of ten. This room is sure to delight with wood paneling, bookcases, a bar with storage drawers and shelving and walls of built-ins with, as throughout the home, old drop bar latches, strap hinges + handles. Brick flooring + a fireplace complete this special room. The rear of the home features a half bath and a spacious kitchen with ample cabinet space and windows overlooking the private patio.

Following the hall closets to the front of the home is a bedroom with a wall of bookcases and closet +GG perfect for a crib, office or exercise room. The large owners+GG suite, with plenty of space for a king size bed + sitting area, faces the Potomac + Windmill Park allowing for glorious morning light + soft golden light at the end of the day. The owners' bath with large linen closet and tiled shower with seamless glass door was remodeled by Harry Braswell, Inc.

The bike path is one block away + the beautiful waterfront, restaurants + shops of King + Washington Streets, grocery stores, dry cleaners, schools and churches are within blocks. The fireplaces + a/c units convey "as is".
