If your dream home requires a wine cellar, eight fireplaces, a guest house, a pool, and a pier on Spa Creek, check this one out!
This historic home in Annapolis, Maryland, was originally built in 1740 but has been completely renovated and restored. Many of the original details remain intact, resulting in large, charming rooms where you could easily host guests or parties. There are four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, and lots of living space over 5,000 square feet. This Long & Foster listing at 1 S. Acton Place, in Annapolis, is listed for $4,950,000. Let's check it out!
The facade is the original historic brick, creating a beautiful, classic look. There are many rooms in this house that offer space for gathering, and most of them have a fireplace (there are eight total in the home!).
Like the living room (above), the dining room has a fireplace to set the mood for those midwinter dinners.
The other interesting feature of the living room is the jib-doors that lead to the veranda outside. This feature is repeated in the library, surrounded by beautiful built-in bookcases.
The jib-doors and fireplace combo is repeated in other rooms as well, such as this office.
The living and entertaining space is rounded out by a cozy kitchen ...
... and a beautiful breakfast nook with a wall of windows overlooking a conservatory.
The home has four bedrooms, but if you don't need that many, they can easily be converted to other uses, like sitting rooms.
Heading upstairs, the master suite features a fireplace (of course) in the spacious bedroom ...
... a luxurious master bathroom ...
... and a walk-in closet with room to spare.
The other bedrooms feature fireplaces as well, like these two.
And then there's this beautiful wine cellar.
In addition to the space inside the home, there is also a carriage house apartment with one bedroom, a living/dining room, and a full kitchen.
Moving out to the backyard, a veranda overlooks the large yard, including the in-ground pool.
Eventually, the yard slopes down to the river and the pier beyond, promising a summer full of activity.
