Take advantage of this rare opportunity to own Covington House, a stunning property in beautiful and sought-after historic Easton, Maryland.
Located at 211 S. Harrison Street, this home is conveniently situated less than 50 miles from Annapolis and 70 miles from both Baltimore and Washington, D.C., making it ideal as a primary residence or a second home. The residence is listed by Martha Witte Suss and Annie Witte Raymond with Long & Foster’s Easton, Maryland office and is offered for $2.895M.
“If location is important, there’s no better place than this word-class masterpiece in the heart of old town Easton, Maryland,” said Martha Witte Suss. “Covington House, nestled between South Harrison Street and Tyler Lane, is a gorgeous home with private gardens, a pool, a poolside gazebo and much more.”
Built in 1911, this historic home has been lovingly maintained and updated with every modern convenience. Arriving at the property, you are met with a regal circular driveway. A first glimpse of the home is breathtaking, with its Federalist style and welcoming porch with built-in bench seating leading to a stately wooden front door.
Greet your guests in style in the elegant, spacious foyer with French doors providing enticing views of the first-floor rooms. This level provides cozy spaces, including a den, for reading, relaxing, and visiting with family and friends.
On one side of the foyer, you’ll find a 30-foot-long grand living room with a fireplace – a perfect place to serve drinks before dinner. This room opens to a 25-foot-long sunroom and with windows on three sides, it is flooded with natural sunlight.
In warm weather, open doors from the sunroom to extend your party to the private outdoor space. There, you’ll find a series of well-manicured gardens and an artfully designed circular, heated pool with fountains, doubling as a calming reflecting pool. Escape from the sun and relax with a cold lemonade on a warm summer day in the idyllic poolside gazebo.
Your dinner parties and family celebrations will be remembered in the elegant dining room with a built-in cabinet to showcase your finest china and crystal. It will be easy to cook a meal for family or for a crowd in the kitchen equipped with double ovens, six-burner Viking range and long center island with seating. The secondary kitchen/butler’s pantry has plenty of cabinets, two sinks, and a wine and beverage chiller for you or your catering team to prepare and serve food and drinks at your next cocktail party.
