It is a rare opportunity to own a historic home that has been meticulously restored to its original beauty and thoughtfully updated with modern systems, mechanicals, and amenities by the current owner. The former rectory for St. John, the Evangelist Church of Chews Landing, was built in 1885 and used in that capacity until 1955 when the church sold the home to the Brinings family on the condition that it be moved to a new site so the church could add a parking lot!
As you approach this beautiful home you are greeted with a stunning & open 25×8 L-shaped wrap-around porch. Entering into a grand 20×5.5 foyer that leads to the first-floor parlor. You will find a gas fireplace, beautiful maple cherry hardwood floors, and 10-foot ceilings on this level! Double doors lead into the dining room, which is ideal for making fond memories of mealtime with your family! The kitchen offers Oak Flooring, Stainless Steel appliances, and a large pantry area. There is a large mudroom/laundry area off of the kitchen. You will find a vast 20×9 remodeled bathroom on the second floor with a claw foot tub, double sinks, a stand-up shower with dual shower heads, and a huge bench seat perfect for luxurious bathing. There are three ample-sized bedrooms on this floor (one is currently set up as a second parlor area with a gas fireplace).
