Located in the heart of downtown Ansonborough neighborhood, this stately home exemplifies history, charm and downtown living. Within walking distance are some of the city's most popular restaurants, shops and galleries, but the residential street offers a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of city life. The expansive home was built in 1815 by ship builder James Marsh and includes a main residence and a three-story carriage house. Many of the home's original touches remain including imported English brick, heart pine floors, detailed molding and wainscotting, marble fireplaces, cypress doors and more. The property exudes curb appeal with two levels of piazzas, oriented to capitalize on the harbor breezes, and a large, manicured lot. The main house has a traditional floor plan with an entry foyer, formal dining room and formal living room on the first floor. Marble counters, stainless appliances, and exposed brick enhance the kitchen. The second floor features a formal sitting room with a fireplace and wetbar, along with the master bedroom and en suite bath. The third floor features an additional bedroom and sitting room. The carriage house is incredibly spacious with a living room, separate dining room and full kitchen on the first floor and a den and three bedrooms, all with en suite baths and walk-in closets, on the second and third floors. Covered porches, a walled courtyard, brick pathways and manicured gardens further enhance the property's appeal.
