Description

The historic Tate House, nestled in downtown Charles Town, was built in about 1797 and is extremely well maintained. Currently used as office space, this property is zoned “commercial/residential” and can be easily returned to a welcoming and gracious home. This is a three-story, 5 bedroom home with an additional attached 1 bedroom apartment and plenty of off-street parking. Formal Dining room with mural. Formal living room with wood-burning fireplace. Dual wood-burning fireplaces and built-in shelves/cabinets in the den, which walks out to the generous patio and side yard. Up the wide, formal staircase are three generous sized bedrooms and a full bath, with two additional bedrooms on the 3rd floor. Also, attached is a 1 bedroom apartment. Solar panels were added in 2020. This is an extremely rare chance to own a piece of history! ** From the Jefferson County Museum: “Tate-Fairfax-Muse House (201 E. Washington Street). An excellent example of Late Georgian architecture, the main clock of the house was constructed about 1800 on a lot owned by Mangus Tate, II, a prominent Jefferson County attorney and legislator. In 1803, the property was leased by Ferdinando Fairfax, great-nephew of both George Washington and Thomas, Lord Fairfax, and one of the county’s first Justices of the Peace. Battaile Muse, business manager for both Washington and Fairfax, owned the property in 1810, and it is believed he built the kitchen at the rear. Muse was left in charge of Fairfax’s Jefferson County holdings when the latter departed for England. In 1870 the detached kitchen was joined to the main residence. The west wall is constructed of Flemish bond brick.”
