The Details

3 Beds | 2.5 Baths | 2,008 Sq Ft | 1840 Year Built
Open House - June 30, 2019
2:00pm to 4:00pm
This absolutely charming 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home in Old Town is oozing with character and curb appeal, beginning with its lovely sided exterior with window shutters, and covered brick porch. The corner townhouse perched above the street sits on a sizable lot beautified by mature landscaping including green grass and multiple evergreens.639 South Saint Asaph Street was built in 1840, initially with just 2 rooms, and only with a commercial designation. The house was renovated in 1967 by Polly Hulfish, a talented Old Town resident and member of a 5-generation family in the neighborhood, who had the vision to renovate a number of old dwellings in the 1960's and paved the way for the area~s residential restoration and importance.A more recent addition in the 1980's included adding a spacious family room brightened by a bay window with window seat, and warmed by a wood-burning fireplace. Glass-paneled doors open out to the serene patio oasis. Gracious living is heightened with many original elements as well, such as original heart of pine wood floors, and an original wood-burning fireplace with an exquisite hand-carved mantel in the living room.The dining room is enriched by beamed ceilings, in addition to original heart of pine wood paneling on the walls which were the original floorboards. The sunny white kitchen is a delight for the cook with a bead-board ceiling, stainless appliances and stove hood, polished nickel knobs and pulls, plus new Architectural Ceramics tile back splash and peninsula.Ascend the main stairs with a brand new 100% wool runner to the upper level. Above the family room sits a large master suite with vaulted ceilings, 4 windows with new white wood blinds, a fireplace, double closets, and a terrific master bath with dual vanities and a generous spa-size shower.Fall in love with this elegant, inviting beauty in an excellent location near shopping, eateries and conveniences, in walking distance to several parks including Windmill Hill Park, and the new Waterfront Park.
