22 E 3rd St
Frederick, MD

If you want to live in downtown Frederick you can’t ask for a more convenient location to restaurants, shops and art galleries! Just a few steps from North Market Street brings you to the brick facade & Front Porch of 22 E 3rd. As you step over the granite threshold into this stately, historic home’s Vestibule notice its original tile floor. The 10’ ceiling height, wide doorways & large rooms create a wonderful sense of refined space & volume. Turn from the Hall into the generously sized Living Room which is perfect for entertaining with its original elegant fireplace mantle, lovely front window with shutters & hardwood floors. The fine craftsmanship shows in the beautiful woodwork which remains intact throughout the home & speaks to the era of this circa 1900 home. Built by the affluent Rhoderick family it was one of first homes in the city to have electricity installed. To say “They don’t build them like this today” would be an understatement! The fine details continue through the Stair Hall with original newel post & railings, to the elegant Dining Room which boasts another fireplace & door to the rear Garden. Be sure to note the 3 sets of HUGE original solid wood pocket doors which can be closed for privacy or tucked away to allow for easy flow. Pass by full Bath #1 (with towel heater!) to the most welcoming eat-in Kitchen with cherry cabinets, solid surface counters & convenient back stairs. The rear door leads to the wide covered Porch & professionally-designed, low-maintenance Garden, featured on the 2019 Beyond the Garden Gates tour. Have your choice of morning & evening beverages on the brick patio while enjoying the birdsong, flowers & fireflies! The 10' ceilings continue on the 2nd Floor which includes full Bath #2 & 4 very large Bedrooms, featuring an arched bay window & treetop view in the Primary. A Sunroom overlooks the Garden capturing the southern light. The 3rd Floor has 2 more large Bedrooms, 1 small Bedroom, Bonus Room with sink & full Bath #3 with towel heater. This floor features 9' ceilings, a walk-in cedar closet & a delightful triple window with arch & window seat in the spacious front Bedroom. Make sure to take in the views over the rooftops. With so many rooms on the top two floors you could choose to convert any of them to a work-from-home Office, another Living Area & an elegant Primary Ensuite — & still have rooms to spare! A high efficiency gas furnace supplies the radiant heat & 3 zoned mini-splits supply the AC ( & additional heat). The space this 3,700 sq ft home affords is abundant & , after 27 years of being meticulously maintained by the seller, now awaits its next owners. In times like these when home is so important imagine the lifestyle the history, size & location this property has to offer! A Maxwell Avenue garage condo is being offered for sale to buyer if desired.
