One of Old Town’s most desirable properties, 109 Duke Street boasts the perfect blend of historic charm and gracious living complemented by thoughtful and functional updates. Situated in the heart of Old Town, this beautiful in-town estate is located just one block from the Potomac River. The original building was constructed in the 1800’s and later enlarged with a handsome addition, which adds modern conveniences while maintaining the stately character of the original house. The spacious, light filled rooms are highlighted by 9 foot ceilings, mellow wood floors and hand-crafted, period details. A gracious foyer, highlighted by a lovely period fan light, offers an elegant welcome with a sweeping three-floor staircase as well as a coat closet and powder room. The generously proportioned Living Room and Dining Room feature antique mantels. Handcrafted, built-in bookcases frame the Dining Room’s decorative fireplace. Also on this level is the ideal kitchen and adjoining family room, so rare in Old Town. Top quality cabinetry, with granite topped counters, provide ample workspace and high-end appliances accommodate cooks and catering in style. The inviting family room enjoys morning light and garden views. The second floor is home to a lovely master bedroom suite. Exceptionally tall ceilings, a pretty fireplace with marble surround and tree-top views make this a perfect retreat. The luxury bath features an oversized shower and twin sink vanity, all clad in pale Travertine. Two additional bedrooms, a full bath and handy laundry room are on this level. The third floor offers the flexible fourth bedroom with a private bath. This generous space is charming and loaded with possibilities. Don’t miss the river views from the upper levels or the Old Town skyline from the third floor deck. The basement level includes a nicely finished recreation/play/media/exercise room and a large unfinished storage space, perfect for a future wine cellar. Be wowed by the oversized back garden, unique in Old Town. Thoughtfully designed and landscaped, this outdoor living space includes a large patio with fireplace and fountain. Enclosed with a twelve foot brick wall, there is a “secret garden” quality to enjoy. At the rear of the garden a bricked parking courtyard is accessed by an electric gate, providing convenient private parking for several vehicles. The historic property is set on a double lot (107 and 109 Duke St.) and offers 5,933 sf (.14 acre) of exterior space and approximately 4,000 sf of indoor living space. Recent updates include new windows, renovated bathrooms, heating and air conditioning systems, and an in-ground irrigation system. The home is well-appointed and move-in ready.
