Built 1842
Nestled on one of the prettiest blocks in Old Town is where you will find the truly remarkable and historic residence of 207 Wilkes Street. First impressions matter. The quiet, robustly tree-lined street, surrounded by the presence of other beautifully historic properties, is guaranteed to enhance the feeling of coming home. Built in 1842, the exterior reflects a Colonial facade one would desire, and showcases a unique entrance and curb appeal you’ll instantly adore. The lower level entrance welcomes you into a bright open family room, that boasts a wood-burning fireplace and rustic brick wall elements. This room ushers you to a flexible bonus room that is ideal for use as an office, den to relax, or set up for guests to stay comfortably with a full bathroom. Ascending the stairs to the fully open and main living space, you are immediately drawn in by the stunning kitchen that features a sophisticated aesthetic. Complemented by ample cabinets, sleek subway tile backsplash, honed Soapstone countertops (from a quarry in VA - installed 2020), top-of-the-line appliances (Wolf, SubZero, Vent-A-Hood), and a large center island, this kitchen is a dream to cook in! With the leisurely flow of this level, you’ll never miss a beat while entertaining. The dining room can easily transition for formal or casual affairs, and the living room showcases the home's second wood-burning fireplace with a dentil molding mantel and custom built-in shelves. Two sets of French doors deliver an abundance of natural light and open to two charming Juliet balconies that frame the streetscape. Any party can expand to the fantastic and private outdoor space ready to impress. The cozy brick walls wrap around a chevron design brick patio, providing the perfect spot to unwind after a long day or catch up with family and friends. Your four-legged friends will love it too! Moving to the upper level of the home, you will find two bedrooms and one updated bathroom. From the windows in the primary bedroom, you’ll love to take in the river views which are guaranteed to boost a feeling of peace. This home may offer modern necessities, but it still retains many of its authentic features such as the original heart pine wood floors throughout, historic yet restored windows, and the patio was re-designed in 2019 using historic bricks from Old Town and Baltimore. Located in the desirable SE Quadrant of the city, by becoming the new owner you will be gifted with an effortless lifestyle of uncomplicated access to local parks, relish quick promenades to award-winning restaurants and shops, and look forward to memorable community experiences. Additional perks include - an abundance of street parking (permit required), a new roof (2022), the entire exterior/interior painted (2019), and all new light fixtures throughout (2018). Close to National Airport, Amazon HQ2, DC, and so much more!
