Property Description

Welcome to 9789 Charles St, a truly remarkable historic home nestled in the heart of La Plata, Maryland. This all-brick custom home exudes elegance and charm, offering a blend of timeless architecture and modern amenities. Boasting 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and a 2-car end load garage, this property sits on an expansive 10.25-acre lot, providing the perfect balance of tranquility and convenience. As you approach this magnificent residence, you'll be captivated by the long circular driveway, offering ample parking space for you and your guests. The property backs to a serene wooded area, ensuring privacy and a peaceful atmosphere. Aptly named "Ellenwood," this home carries a rich history dating back to its original construction in 1857. It was a secret gift from Marshall Chapman to his beloved wife, Ellen Stockett, and was built on land owned by the Chapman family's La Plata Farm. Between 2005 and 2009, extensive renovations were carried out on the property, carefully preserving the integrity of the original architecture while adding modern comforts. The front porch welcomes you with its open-air presence and brick flooring, setting the tone for the impeccable craftsmanship you'll find throughout. Step inside the grand entrance, featuring a stunning 2-story foyer adorned with a spiral staircase and elegant marble flooring. The main level of the home boasts mostly hardwood floors, gracing the living room, dining room, and family room. A powder room conveniently serves guests. The gourmet kitchen is a chef's dream, complete with granite countertops, ample cabinetry, and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, including a 6-burner gas cooktop and convection oven. The island features a vegetable prep sink, while the adjacent butler's pantry is equipped with a mini fridge and wet bar. Adjacent to the kitchen, you'll find a delightful breakfast room and a family room with a vaulted ceiling, creating a spacious and inviting atmosphere. A triple French door with transoms leads out to a sprawling Trex deck, perfect for outdoor entertaining. Additionally, a charming slate patio extends your entertainment space while providing panoramic views of the property. The upper level of the home is equally impressive, housing the primary bedroom, complete with a walk-in closet and an ensuite bath featuring double sinks, a tile shower, and a luxurious soaking tub. Another bedroom on this level serves as a versatile space, ideal for an office with its gas fireplace and recessed lighting. The next upper level reveals three additional bedrooms and a full bathroom, ensuring ample accommodation for family and guests. The lower level of the home presents a full office, another full bathroom, and a mechanical cellar area. This level also provides convenient access to the oversized garage area, offering plenty of storage space. Don't miss your chance to own a piece of La Plata's history at 9789 Charles St. Schedule your private viewing today and envision a life of refined elegance, modern comfort, and captivating stories from the past.
