All updated utilities 4 years old (Plumbing, electrical, water heater, HVAC) This home has everything you need with flexibility for everyday use, entertaining guests, or working from home. As you approach the meticulously restored 100+ year home at 229 West South Street, the extended covered front porch welcomes you, and is a perfect spot for cozy morning coffee or visiting with friends. Across the threshold, the expansive living room with a slate fireplace with a cast-iron woodstove and oversized windows is made for entertaining or provides room for the kiddos to run around. Adjacent to the living room is a stunning full bath with a victory soaking tub, marble floor, and vanity and light switches that takes you back in time.

The gourmet galley kitchen features marble countertops and backsplash, an NXR gas range, a repurposed Empire Buffet sink, and repurposed DC post office lock boxes as lower cabinets. You don’t have to worry about storage space here with additional custom lowers and upper cabinets. Pass through the kitchen to the first-floor bedroom, guarded by double wood doors salvaged from a Baltimore Mansion. Don't need this 4th bedroom? Utilize the room as an office, playroom, or sunroom.

The sweeping primary bedroom with en-suite bath includes a sizable walkthrough closet to the laundry room with Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens. The primary bathroom includes a beautiful floating farmhouse sink, marble floors throughout, and a standup shower with glass enclosure. Access the bonus 3rd floor attic from the primary bedroom; the current owners use this room as a yoga studio.

Working back downstairs, the basement entrance is in the mudroom adjoining the dining room. The unfinished basement is a perfect area for a workshop with plenty of 220V receptacles to utilize numerous power tools. Our tour ends in the backyard starting with a hand-laid reclaimed brick patio. With plenty of room for play, gardening, and entertaining, the backyard is private, lavishly landscaped, and fully fenced (cedar). It includes a patio bar covered with a salvaged roof slate, raised planting beds, a cold frame for extending the growing season, and room for a fire pit… essentially everything needed for all-season use. Behind the backyard is a paved parking lot that can house up to 4 cars and has been utilized by the owners as a rental opportunity ($70 monthly per spot). The primary parking spot for the house (5th spot) is located adjacent to the front porch. 229 West South Sreet is on a lovely tree-lined street, with easy access to commuter routes and all that Frederick has to offer: walk or bike along Carroll Creek to shops and restaurants; discover the 58 Acres that Baker Park provides (jogging/bike paths, playgrounds, lake, bocce courts, bandshell, and much more); summertime music on the creek; Food Trucks at local breweries; 4th of July festivities, and more.
