Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase the "Carver House" a Havre de Grace Historic District Queen Anne Victorian Home built circa 1885 and with much of its original architectural features intact! The traditional clapboard and fish scale siding is painted in a period-accurate color scheme with covered wrap-around front, side and rear porches plus screened-in balcony sleeping porch. Slate sidewalks lead from the tree-lined street to the front porch and around to the fenced rear yard. Enter the home through the double shuttered front door with classic leaded stained glass inset into a center hall which opens to the formal living room to the north and library to the south, each with a bow window. The bookshelf-lined library is accented with an LP gas fireplace with decorative slate mantle and surround. The 9 ft. ceilings are adorned with molded plaster ceiling light escutcheons. The spacious country kitchen serves a formal dining room with two (2) built-in corner cupboards. You will delight in the newell post light and natural wood trim of the front stairway and the intrigue of a rear stairway. The second level is finished with 4 bedrooms, a private half-bath and large hall bath with unique black/white woven pattern tile flooring. There is a bonus nursery/sewing room with walk-in closet that leads to the screened-in sleeping porch. Although there is no heat in the third level, the plastered ceilings and walls finish provides the opportunity to increase your living area and create a fabulous upper level bedroom suite! The historic character of the property continues with the 19th C 2-story detached summer kitchen/storage building with a built-in period cabinet and plastered walls and ceilings in the second level finished room. Delight in summer fun in the in-ground swimming pool with diving board, updated filter system and supplies. This Home is located in an Historic area of the City of Havre de Grace and is recognized by the Maryland Historic Trust. This recognition paves the way for formal recognition and/or easements with the State and/or Federal historic trusts, which could then open the doors to grants and tax credits for qualified historic trust restoration projects. Historic Registry documents are uploaded into the MLS documents and available from the office of the Listing Agent.
