Property Description:

Rare opportunity to own and live in one of Shepherdstown's most historic homes. Welcome to the iconic " Great Western " Originally built about 1775 as a tavern/hotel this showcase has been transformed over the years into the stately residence it has become. Located directly on the main street, it affords the new owner(s) easy access to Shepherdstown's critically acclaimed restaurants and shops, Shepherd University, the C&O canal, Antietam Battlefield, Harpers Ferry National Park and a ten minute drive to hop on a train to destinations near and far. Featuring all hardwood floors, the den/library off the kitchen is especially charming, grand, expansive oversized living room lends itself to gracious entertaining, numerous fireplaces, three beautiful covered porches ( two are enclosed ) a regal rear yard, especially when viewed from within the enclosed back porch. By todays residential design standards the second floor sleeping porch is a rare find. Fresh exterior paint, new standing seam metal roof, back yard is fenced. Two separate wooden staircases. Third floor bedroom is perfect for that extra quest or roaming teenager. We could go on but I think the photos are much more descriptive than I. Please take a moment and take a look. Call me, Dan Anderson agent. direct for showing instructions. All hyperbole aside this is truly a rare opportunity. Don't wait to tour. Stones/Pavers by outside shed do not convey. Key in lock box fits both side door and back door. No plat available. Architectural drawings for a revamped kitchen are available. Extra parking possible coming off the back alley. Showing times 9-6pm all days.
