Situated on a beautiful corner lot in downtown Centreville, this unique home is the earliest positively dated building in the town's Historic District. The original brick structure was built in 1794. A major addition and renovation was completed in 1885, and the large front porch was added in the early 20th century. The foyer, dining room, and formal living room boast parquet flooring, high ceilings, and numerous built-ins. An additional living room, enclosed by 2 doors and adjacent to a full bath, could be used as a 5th bedroom. Built-in storage lines both hallways connecting the front of the house to the back. A spacious breakfast room opens up to a kitchen with an abundance of cabinetry, counter space, and natural light. With double wall ovens, 2 refrigerators, and a large granite island with an externally ventilated cooktop, such a sizable and functional kitchen is a rare find in a historic home. There are 4 bedrooms on the second level, including a master suite with a walk-in closet and full ensuite bath. In addition to the grand Victorian staircase, a back staircase leads to a 3rd full bath and upstairs living space adjoining one of the bedrooms. A walk-up attic provides ample, easily accessible storage space. The kitchen exits to a generously sized screened porch with surrounding views of dynamic scenery. The 2/3-acre lot is a gardener’s paradise, intricately landscaped with old growth offering natural privacy. Some standout features include a lovingly maintained fish pond and mature blueberry patch that yields plentiful harvests. There is a detached one-car garage/shed, private driveway, and exterior access to the cellar. Roof replaced in 2016. Other recent improvements include: CAT6 internet wiring for whole-house WiFi coverage, 200-amp electrical panel with generator interlock, high-efficiency hybrid water heater, and 7 Mitsubishi Hyper Heat ductless mini-splits for single-source heating and cooling throughout the home, each with dedicated outdoor compressor units for optimal efficiency and performance. While the oil-fired furnace and radiators remain to preserve the home’s historic character, they are no longer needed. Have it all at 102 S Liberty Street: walking to restaurants and downtown shopping, with the comforts of modern living with timeless Victorian elegance, and the charm of small-town life with a lush backyard oasis. Conveniently located in between Washington DC and New York, NY and points in between, Philadelphia, PA Baltimore, Wilmington, DE and Annapolis
