Property Description

Steeped in history; yet modern comforts and convenient living showcase this bespoke home! Constructed in 1856 in the Greek Revival style by John Tehan along Tehan's Row, an early owner of this home was Frederick prominent citizen and friend of Lincoln, Frederick Schley. Original architectural design elements have been carefully and lovingly restored and maintained throughout the storied history of this home. The current garden and terraces remain in similar configuration to the original but have undergone careful plantings and design with a nod to its past yet bearing in mind the desirability of low maintenance and surprise elements. Step inside this gorgeous home, off this leafy section of 2nd street, into the quiet and elegance which has been maintained with great attention to detail by the current as well as previous owners. The grand yet inviting parlor with its massive marble Rococo Revival-mantelpiece with an arched firebox opening, creates a dramatic focus in the room. Of particular note is the late 19th century, ten and a half foot gilt peer mirror featuring incised ornamentation and a marble topped arm proudly displayed between the front windows. Custom drapery highlights this exceptional mirror. The parlor leads to the elegantly appointed library with its original jib door and windows creating a quiet space to read or relax. The elegant dining room showcases the Greek Revival style mantlepiece above the fireplace and a corner cupboard. Enjoy beautiful views from the kitchen and backroom of the upper and lower sitting terraces. A full bathroom completes the main level. The first level shows an owner’s suite with charming bathroom and door opening to the balcony with it’s own staircase leading to the bluestone and brick piazza below. The owner’s suite also has three closets including two large walk-ins. On the rear of the home find a large office or family room with fireplace and tranquil views of the back of the property. The room is spacious and comfortable with its own staircase with access to the kitchen. A bedroom, full bathroom and additional back room lead off this room. At the top floor find an office space or quiet living area with distant views of Sugarloaf Mountain and bedroom with en suite spa like bathroom including a steam shower. The woodwork and extraordinary finishes throughout the house add an understated elegance of a bygone era. This landmark registered home has the honor of hosting a male Ginkgo tree which is recorded on the Register of Largest Trees in Maryland and is a prominent feature of the back yard. This 160-year old champion is reported to have been brought from Japan by Frederck Schley. This extraordinary property has the modern convenience of a newly constructed three car garage sympathetically designed and constructed but so desirable in the historic heart of Frederick. A short walk offers you the best of all that award-winning Frederick has to offer. Excellent restaurants and quaint shops with the canal walkway and Baker Park on your doorstep.
