One of the most admired homes in Old Town offered publicly for the first time! 226 S Fairfax Street is an all-brick, fully detached historic home perfectly sited on one of the most sought after blocks in the Southeast Quadrant of Old Town, just two blocks from King Street and only 3 blocks to the waterfront! This truly unique property sits on a double lot with a combined 0.10 acre, and offers a rare detached oversized garage for 2 cars, plus an additional brick driveway for off-street parking that can accommodate 3 additional vehicles. The all-brick detached garage was constructed to mirror the age of the home in materials and design and features gorgeous solid wood, carriage house style double doors (and has power!). The wide covered side porch and the fenced backyard and brick patio offer incredible outdoor space for peaceful relaxation or entertaining family and friends. The home presents the perfect blend of historic charm coupled with modern finished and conveniences. Throughout the interior are exposed brick walls, beautiful original hardwood floors, 9ft+ high ceilings, fresh neutral paint, and large windows allowing the living spaces to be flooded with natural light. The main level includes a formal living room with decorative fireplace mantel, updated powder room and kitchen, and a large dining room that can also be used as an additional living space. The light-filled kitchen features stainless-steel appliances, under-cabinet lighting, gas cooking, and a side door to the breezeway connecting the home to the patio and garage. For ease and convenience, the kitchen also offers an additional staircase up to the bedroom level at the rear of the home. High ceilings, exposed brick and hardwood floors continue onto the upper level, hosting three bedrooms and two renovated full bathrooms, each with glass-enclosed showers. Charming gas lanterns around the exterior of the home add to its historic charm while the huge flat, brick patio + flat green space offers privacy in the heart of the city. The lower level, unfinished basement is ideal for storage and features a cellar exit. Dual zone HVAC. Waterproofing system in basement. Historic windows convey as-is. Don't miss this incredibly rare opportunity to be the 4th owner of this historic residence!
