An early 19th-century farmhouse with five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, on a 0.5-acre lot
Originally two houses built around 1828, this home was joined into a single structure in the mid-19th century. The current owners bought it in 2019 and did an extensive renovation, working to preserve the original charm while updating the kitchen and bathrooms.
Washington is a small city, with a grocery store, a hardware store and several historic house museums within a few blocks of this property.

The hardwood floors continue into a living room with a crystal chandelier and a fireplace with a brick surround. This space connects to a dining room with another crystal chandelier and another fireplace. A powder room, a laundry room and an office with access to the rear deck are off the dining room.
The kitchen, at the back of the house, has exposed ceiling beams, white cabinetry and a center island and counters topped with butcher block.
The primary suite is on the first floor, to the left of the foyer. It has an accent wall papered in a floral print, a windowed alcove facing the front yard and a bathroom with a claw-foot tub and a separate walk-in shower.
Four more bedrooms are upstairs. The larger two face the front of the property. One of the others has access to a covered balcony overlooking the backyard; the fourth is used as a study.
