A rare chance to own a piece of Annapolis history! Built in 1881 for Commodore James Waddell and his wife Ann (read Sea of Gray by Tom Chaffin and/or The Accidental Pirate (attached in documents) to learn more about the historical significance) this Queen Anne revival/Craftsmen style brick and beam constructed home is built to impress! Located on the corner of Prince George St and College Ave across from St. John's College campus this home is in the heart of Annapolis within walking distance of shops and restaurants but far enough away to be a serene and peaceful setting. Enjoy exquisite original details throughout the home including elaborately carved woodwork, oversized coved moldings, 12'+ ceilings, hardwood floors, built-ins, ornate brass hardware and 3 working fireplaces converted to gas for convenience. The 4 bedroom 4 bath home perfectly blends the old with the new, creating comfortable spaces for modern living. The main level is perfectly laid out for hosting extravagant parties or just relaxing in the cozy reading nook located in the spacious Living Room. The oversized Foyer is a perfect space for enjoying cocktail hour while a wonderful dinner is prepared in the well-equipped Gourmet Kitchen with tons of cabinets, high-end appliances and impressive butler's pantry; and then served in the exquisite formal Dining Room with fireplace, huge windows, soaring ceilings and a portrait of the original owner watching over the festivities. Completing the main level is a private side entrance with mudroom, laundry room area, Full Bath adjacent to DR and rear enclosed porch currently functioning as a rotating art gallery. The upper level boasts more beautiful detailing with built-in cabinets, hardwood floors, and high ceilings. What was originally the servants quarters has been converted into 3 bedrooms with Full Bath. Continue up a few more stairs to enjoy the Master Suite wing of the upper level. The oversized Master boasts a gas fireplace and is full of built-in custom cabinets. The Bedroom flows into the spa-like Master Bath with vintage details but all the modern conveniences. Beyond the Master is the Library/Den with walls of shelves, built-in desk area, fireplace, great views and a surprise on the ceiling! The lower level provides even more living space with finished lounge area, enclosed storage area perfect for a wine cellar and Full Bath with sauna. Making this property even more desirable is the 2 car parking pad right off College Ave with gate to enter your large private patio area with privacy fencing and accent lighting. side entry to home and lots of storage sheds. Welcome Home!
