Restored 1927 Craftsman-style kit house in Harpers Ferry. Clad in sturdy site-made concrete block, this classic bungalow has been lovingly restored, respecting both the taste and sensibility of the golden age of American homebuilding. Warm wood trim and mouldings throughout have never seen a paint brush in nearly 100 years. Built-in cabinetry and interior ventilation windows still serve their original functions. The kitchen features a 1920s restored Chambers Gas Range and Fridgidaire that are right at home with the original porcelain farm sink that has served the house for decades. (Menonite craftsman have even skillfully disguised the Bosch dishwaser to keep with the 20?s æsthetic.) Sandblasted and refinished radiators provide the most comfortable radiant heat, while a Trane heat pump serves as both a secondary heat source and ultra-efficient central air-conditioning when the seasons warm. Expansive covered porches on both the north and south sides of the house make morning coffee and an evening cocktail equally comfy. Hand-made sunbrella awnings were made to match those that were original to the house, and a new custom made standing seam roof will guarantee decades of protection for this ?contributing structure? to the Harpers Ferry Historic District. A sturdy and handsome home from a warmer, gentler time, this four bedroom two bath gem on three corner lots is currently available.
