History, beauty, elegance, a water view, and contemporary amenities. This is what awaits you at 4 Revell Street in historic Annapolis. And the shops, eateries, and watering holes of the City Dock area of old Annapolis are just a short stroll away from your front door. But don’t take my word for it. You have to see this home for yourself to truly appreciate what it has to offer.

 

It begins at the front door

4_Revell_PorchSeldom does any realtor begin a home description with a photo of its front porch. But it’s the perfect place  for this gorgeous charmer. Beautiful, old-world  elegance draws you in. Then you begin to imagine yourself relaxing here on a hot summer’s day, a pitcher of iced lemonade by your side.

 

 

Space for family and friends

Whether entertaining or just settling down for family time in the evening, this home provides the space you need to unwind.  In addition to a 250+ sq-ft living room and 210 sq-ft dining room, you can also retreat to the home’s sitting room (a parlor at the time of the home’s building).

Four bedrooms and character galore

100-year-old homes have far more of something than do contemporary dwellings—character. Taste trumped simplicity and speedy construction a century ago, and 4 Revell Street exemplifies that design aesthetic. Here, you aren’t boxed into perfectly rectangular rooms with a doorway and a window or two. Nowhere is this more evident than in the bedrooms.

Modern touches, too

“Historic home” does not mean “outdated home.” This Victorian beauty has plenty of modern features and conveniences. The kitchen boasts a perfect melding of tasteful modernity and traditional craftsmanship.

Let’s not forget the view

We began our quick tour at the front door, so what better place to end than at the back door. Solace and serenity—enjoy them while lazing away an afternoon on the home’s rear deck. Its spacious and open layout offers you a year-round view overlooking Spa Creek. Pass the time watching boaters ply their way up and down the waterway, turn your attention to the songbirds in the surrounding trees, or close your eyes and watch nothing at all.

And if you’re the least bit of a romantic, here’s a photo of St. Anne’s Church looking down nearby West Street in the year this home saw its first occupants.
