Welcome to "Olde World Charm" in the heart of historic Centreville, MD. This Federal-style home was constructed in 1820 with a third level addition added in 1851. Originally built for Dr. James Franks, it is featured in a MD Historic Trust property write-up (QA-143). This house comes from a time when homes were built by true craftsmen. In the modern era, many of these skills have vanished from existence, so this house is a remembrance of times long gone. It features mortise & tenon joinery, 14" thick walls constructed by hand molded bricks, custom moldings & millwork, wide planked old world Virginia Heart Pine floors and so much more. In 2017, $60,000 was invested in the house to upgrade it with modern amenities including an electric service upgrade to a 200 amp service with removal of knob and tube wiring, structural reinforcement of the cellar/1st level, a remodeled 3rd level bath with radiant floor heating, installation of 3rd level Low-E double pane windows, kitchen upgrades with color matched cabinetry, farmhouse stainless steel kitchen apron sink & herringbone tile custom backsplash, Energy Star washer/dryer and Pella storm door with access to the rear patio. In addition to this "Olde World Charm", this house features a large secluded back yard and off-street parking. Stroll into town to visit local shops and eateries!
