Two level expansive living in Old Town! This rare, plaqued Greek Revival was built in stages between 1790 and 1850. The original Flounder was expanded forward which history tells us was often the case as the owners' wealth allowed. With 3,360 square feet on two levels this handsome classic has been carefully curated with respect for the past and for current living standards. Grandeur prevails beginning with the entry's gas lighting fixtures, German/ Dutch lap wood siding, hand crafted mahogany front door and the formal gallery foyer with a regal staircase. The 11.5 foot ceilings, exquisite crown moldings, chair railings and six remarkable fireplaces with mantels beyond compare are some of the unique features. There is a double parlor with pocket doors, unusually large room sizes and original cylinder glass windows, The current caretakers have pristinely maintained and updated with exquisite craftsmanship of custom built-in's, a metal, standing seam roof and two laundries. The expansive kitchen was added at the rear of the Flounder and in doing so a cistern was discovered! SEE DOCUMENTS in listing for more details on this- the City's historians were delighted. This smashing kitchen features a heated floor, a working fireplace and wet bar all custom designed. There are four bedrooms and three full updated baths and laundry on the second level in two separate wings and below grade there is extensive storage (apx 1,000 square feet) with 2nd laundry- perfect for a wine cellar and a ping pong table. There are six fireplaces- 4 are decorative (perhaps could be converted to gas) and the two wood burning are in good working order however convey as-is. The large and elegant, wrap around brick patio with fountains allows for a private retreat. With all said, this is not a museum- bring the family and pets. Located one block from King Street and in view of historic Christ Church- this is a modern day purist's dream.
