204 NORTH WATER is the perfect marriage between early 20th century and 21st century. The era in which it was built featured many gracious details all retained and meticulously restored. One is struck by the inviting front porch, the Victorian details of balustrades, true working shutters, metal roof and Wisteria mounted along porch eaves. So typical of the time. Adding to the gracious lifestyle is the square ENTRANCE HALL where the original stairway is situated so the side of the stairway is featured as a focal point of the entrance including its handsome newel posts, railings and gentle rise to the second floor. To the left is the LIVING ROOM with fully-functioning original pocket doors between the entrance hall, living room and the separate, spacious DINING ROOM. The wood floors throughout are beautifully finished and original. In both the living room and dining room the ceiling in the bay windows have been imaginatively designed to house modern recessed lighting. Here there are custom designed radiator covers. The like-new condition of the woodwork, walls, decorative mantel and tile coupled with the lighting adds to the dramatic feeling of these social spaces. Of note are the architecturally designed ceilings and crown molding. Adjacent to the dining rooms and kitchen is a new-screened porch that flows to the gardens. The new, very large, quite contemporary, inviting and well-equipped KITCHEN and FAMILY AREA beautifully complement the original traditional architecture. The floor is heated. On the second level there are three gracious bedrooms (or two bedrooms and an office/library). All meticulously restored. The two front rooms enjoy a view of the Chester River and Chester River Bridge. The third room with built-in bookshelves offers a view of the garden and outbuilding. A new, modern bath is nearby. All baths and the powder room feature inlaid tiles from Portugal and Italy as artistic features. Here is a heated towel rack. A "BACK" stairway leads to the MASTER BEDROOM AND MASTER BATH. This very private space offers views of the Chester River and inlaid Portuguese tile display above double windows and window seat. An attractive master bath was added that features a folding glass shower door. ALL the baths have heated toilet seats, handsome tile work, modern fixtures and heated floors. The OUTBUILDING in situated in a slight rise in the garden a brick walk away from the main house. It is heated, has its own electrical service, exhaust fan, window air conditioner and is fully insulated. A great space for a workshop, office or studio. There is a timed sprinkler system for the garden beds and plantings. All new PLUMBING including a unique individual direct line to each faucet for both hot and cold water. All new WIRING. This ca. 1900, handsome, "very modern Victorian lady" is a very special experience that offers a lovely traditional yet contemporary lifestyle. 204 North Water is located in Chestertown in the County of Kent on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
