A reader sent me this listing for a very unique historic row house in Frederick, Maryland. This home dates back to 1885 and is for sale forĀ $379,900. Have a look inside…

The description states “RECENTLY painted ~ neutral palette“. I’m guessing there were some crazy colors in this house in the recent past. Which would’ve been neat too see, but I can almost hear the listing agent sucking in his/her breath while crafting a tactful way to tell the sellers that they need to make the house appeal to the most buyers, rather than reflecting their individual taste.

But still, the furniture and decor are wonderfully elegant and seem to suit this house perfectly – don’t you think?

The agent touts this property as a “landmark in a Historic District”.

Everything in the home from the chandeliers to the floors is impeccable!

The kitchen is modernized but has a small exposed brick nook in one corner, giving us a hint of the historic origins.

The feature that sets this property apart is the rare side solarium which runs the length of the house overlooking an alley courtyard:

This brings tons of light into a style of house that is typically known for being dark through the middle and even claustrophobic due to the lack of windows along the sides.

There are four levels to this house – bedrooms on the upper floors.

In the upstairs master bedroom there is an enclosed porch which has been cleverly converted into a 3/4 bathroom:

Apart from the potential for neighbor peep-shows, I think this is the coolest use of space!

Out back of the row house there is a small garden area and room for 4 parking spaces – luxuries in a tight urban historic district where outdoor space and parking are both hard to come by.
