The Frederick Usilton House

200 Washington Avenue Chestertown in the County of Kent on sale
  • 2915 sq ft
  • 4 beds
  • 4 baths

Strategically located in Chestertown’s lovely Historic District and Chestertown’s National Register District in an area of period houses of the early 1900’s.

This stately brick American Four Square, constructed in 1908, lises one block from Washington College and town center, Fountain Park, with award winning Farmer’s Market, specialty shops, live theatre, galleries and Chestertown’s Arts & Entertainment District. A desirable corner lot with southern exposure provides a light-filled interior.
Driveway and two-car garage have convenient access from the side-street (Kent Street).

This three-story residence was erected in 1908 for Frederick Usilton in the ‘Four-Square” style. Constructed by Chestertown master-builder Walter Pippin. The brick construction, tall windows, wrap-around porch, restrained trim, and graceful dormer window treatments make it one of the most imposing structures along Washington Avenue. Unlike many of the Victorian buildings along Washington Avenue, with their detailed trim and “gingerbread,” this house is more restrained and shows clear links to the Arts and Crafts Movement of the early 20th Century. A pre-1945 brick, two-bay garage has a pyramidal, pressed tin roof with wide over-hanging eaves attributes that echo those found on the main house.

Particularly noteworthy are the cement window sills and lintels; the cement water table; the matching rails around the porch roof, widow’s walk and side entry; the gable window details; interior pocket doors in the parlor; interior five paneled doors throughout the house; and the beautiful original woodwork of the foyer and main stairs that rises to the third floor.

  • 4125 sq ft
  • 4 beds
  • 2 baths

Here’s your chance to own a piece of Greenwood history! Welcome to the Vance-Maxwell House located at 158 Cambridge Ave E in the historically rich area of Uptown Greenwood. Built in 1850, the home is most prominently known as the former residence of Dr. John C. Maxwell, former state Senator, physician, philanthropist and founding father of the Connie Maxwell Children’s Home. Not only was this home to Connie Maxwell herself, it also welcomed local orphans following the Maxwells’ deaths. As the home changed ownership over the years, several remodels occurred, including the transformation from a one and a half story farmhouse style, to the architectural style of the Second Empire. This residence was officially added to the National Register of Historic Places on March 5, 1982. The current owners have added their own touches to this home, including grounding the outlets of the study, remodeling the kitchen (yet maintaining the country charm of the old barn wood cabinetry), remodeling the downstairs bath, adding outdoor deck space, and completing the upstairs master suite. The landscaping features multiple flowers beds, mature shrubs and trees and one of the only (if not THE only) Incense Cedars in Greenwood. Speaking of the great outdoors, don’t miss the wonderful outdoor living this home has to offer. Not only is the front porch architecturally interesting, the current owners also loved enjoying time on the back screened in porch – complete with water and electric. The outdoors follows you inside through the enormous floor to ceiling windows, accentuated by the high ceilings throughout. A quick stroll to the festivals, dining, shopping and community theater, the location can’t be beat! This home is waiting for new owners to add to its rich legacy, schedule your tour today!
