A historic home hidden away in Queen Village that dates back to the mid-1700s is on the market, now asking $995,000 after recently undergoing a pricechop from $1.1 million.

The twin home at 608 S. Front Street is set back far from the sidewalk, hidden behind a fence and a large front yard. It was built for a tailor named John Fullerton around 1745, but has managed to preserve its character after all these years.

The three-bedroom, two and a half bath home clocks in at 2,500 and sits on a large lot that runs from S. Front Street to S. Howard Street. Inside, there are exposed brick walls and hardwood floors throughout, including wide-plank floors in the two-story living room.

But despite its age, the home has been upgraded throughout with features that will help the future owner age in place. There’s an elevator, for one, as well as a solarium and a wine cellar. The back of the home features a gated driveway with enough room for two cars.

Intrigued? There’s an open house on Saturday, November 11 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
