This charming historic home - in the heart of Rockville's prestigious West End neighborhood- sits on a lovely large private landscaped lot, a private oasis in close proximity and walkable to Rockville Metro and downtown, neighborhood parks with amazing amenities, and award-winning public and private schools. Built in 1821, and recorded in the National Register of Historic Places as the Bingham-Brewer House, the original home has been expanded over the years with several additions, upgraded and maintained by its present and past owners. The home provides comfortable and elegant living spaces, and beautiful vintage features including Flemish bond brick at the front, wide plank and pine heart wood floors, fine trim work and built-ins, and hand blown glass windows. A covered porch with a bench leads to the home from the brick sidewalk lined with mature boxwood plantings. Indoors, an elegant Living Room with wood-burning fireplace and built-in bookshelves provides a lovely gathering place. A separate Dining Room at the center of the home provides built-in cupboards, and leads to the comfortable separate Family Room. The Kitchen sits at the back of the house, providing table space and a functional galley layout, as well as access through the back door to the patio and back yard. There is a Laundry/Mudroom adjacent to the Kitchen and two staircases, one at the front of the home and the other at the back. Upstairs, there are three generously-sized Bedrooms and a Den providing ample space for a study or nursery. The large Owners Bedroom faces the front of the house and provides a wood-burning fireplace as well as built-in cupboards. The second Bedroom has an ensuite Bathroom with clawfoot tub. The third Bedroom at the back of the house is adjacent to the second Bathroom. The Den has potential to be a fourth Bedroom - access from hallway possible. The grounds include a large detached two-car garage with workshop and storage space, accessed via a shared driveway. Three additional outbuildings include a former smokehouse, usable as an office, studio or playhouse; and chicken coop, both of which have electricity. The former "outhouse" serves as a toolshed. Registered on the National Register of Historic Places, there are tax credits that may apply to future renovations and maintenance to the home. A bike path in front of the house connects to a network of bike paths including the Millennium Trail and a nearby path leads to wonderful parks and playgrounds. Roof and gutters are two years old. New hot water heater. Freshly painted inside and out. Pool is not in use, but is fenced and surrounded with a terrace. See 3 D tour and floor plans. House is sold as is due to its age.
