House of the Week - 940 Francis Scott Key Hwy, Keymar, MD
Welcome to 940 Francis Scott Key Hwy- this beautiful 4 bed, 1 bath Victorian home greets you with its inviting wraparound porch and will leave you anxious to see what awaits inside. The interior has a warm, welcoming feeling with beautiful original chestnut woodwork throughout and gleaming 100 year old heart pine floors. High ceilings and large windows make the rooms feel spacious and airy, and unique touches such as the turret, built in china cabinet and pocket doors add interest and old world charm. Dual staircases lead to the upper level which hosts the 4 bedrooms, all generous in size, and the full bath. From this floor, step out onto the sleeping porch with a cool drink and a favorite book or enjoy the display of lightning bugs on a nice summer evening. Ample storage and possibilities await in the finished walk-up attic. Situated on a nice, level lot that back to trees, the sprawling rear yard can be enjoyed year round. Recent updates include a new roof, well pump, electric panel box and new basement and attic windows. The front porch was just freshly painted and new gravel laid in the driveway. Providing a close knit community feeling and offering convenient access to Frederick, Westminster, Thurmont and Hanover, this stately home will surely provide years of enjoyment!
