About The Property
205 Wolfe Street
Bigger than it looks! This historic and updated 1800’s townhouse is located in the heart of Old Town’s desirable Southeast Quadrant. Just one block to the Potomac River and Lee Street Park and three blocks to a plethora of shops and restaurants on King Street and throughout this quaint neighborhood, the location is tough to beat.
Thoughtfully renovated, this home features fresh designer paint and light fixtures, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, plantation shutters and gorgeous moldings throughout, making this home sparkle. Smart updates such as Elfa closet systems and Nest thermostat and smoke detectors further modernized this historic gem.
The main level living room and dining rooms each feature working wood-burning fireplaces and the living room also has built-in bookshelves for storage or display. You’ll love the white kitchen with marble backsplash and countertops and stainless steel appliances. It opens to a spacious family room overlooking the charming flagstone patio. The home’s new owners will love spending time on the patio grilling, sipping wine and enjoying the brick and ivy fencing and the shaded views of the steeple of St. Mary’s Cathedral. Last but not least, the main level has a half bath, a coat closet, as well as an oversized pantry with Elfa shelving and full sized washer and dryer.
Upstairs, a long hallway provides privacy for each of the three bedrooms. At the top of the stairs, walk through the adorable pocket door showing exposed brick as you enter the large master bedroom with huge walk-in closet. The closet features a fully customizable Elfa system, as well as a built-in shoe rack and laundry area. From the closet, you can also access one of the home’s two attics with its easily retractable steel staircase that leads to floored storage space with hanging racks for off-season clothes storage.
The renovated full bath in the hallway features heated floors, plenty of counter space and a shower and tub with a swinging European glass door (perfect for adults or for bath time for kids). The sweet middle bedroom or office area with custom moldings is accessed through double doors with crystal knobs. At the end of the hall, you will find the access to the second attic, as well as the home’s third bedroom with Elfa closet and en-suite bathroom that has beautiful views of the patio and flowering trees. More storage can be found by going through the brick archway at the front of the home to the home’s dry storage cellar with great headspace – plus a wine fridge!
