Federal, Semi-Detached - LIBERTYTOWN, MD
THE HISTORIC ABRAHAM JONES HOUSE, 1789 A jewel in the crosshairs of time, set in a charming small town near Frederick that offers numerous lifestyle amenities: proximity to hiking trails through woods and fields, regional and local parks with stocked fishing pond, playgrounds, baseball fields and tennis courts, and easy access to Frederick's shopping, fine dining, arts, libraries and museums. Stewards of this grand 18th century Federal home have carefully conserved its historical integrity over time. Architectural details include the front doorway and foyer plaster ceiling medallion that are documented in several publications (i.e., Maryland Period Rooms, The Baltimore Museum of Art), sweeping arches, 13 ½? ceilings, elaborate crown, chair rail and stairwell-fan moldings, six unique fireplaces, original hardware and pine floors. A large stone "Summer Kitchen" is attached to the house, and mature landscaping with several gardens, a brick patio, and a seasonal creek grace the half-acre grounds.
