    Description

    Absolutely stunning historic restoration with modern upgrades and expansive addition. Walking distance to Harpers Ferry National Park, Appalachian Trail, Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers and the C&O canal. This property can be used as commercial and or residential, the front and rear of the home have separate utilities and is a prime candidate for a B&B.Highlights include 4 Fireplaces with relined chimneys. Reglazed windows. New metal roof. New cedar fence. All water lines are PEX home runs to a master manifold. Cat iron tubs. Back up sump pump. Irrigation for the extensive landscaping. Antique hardware. Custom gourmet kitchen including custom cabinets built by the owner. Subzero built in fridge. 4 Full tiled baths and 2 tiles half baths. Heart Pine flooring. Garden Shed. All new electric. Custom trim and millwork. Huge Wrap around porch. Very large drive and parking. Awesome patio. Huge side and rear yard. Locally referred to as the Frances Tusing House, in honor of the long-term resident who served as Bolivars Treasurer for many years, this 1830's brick residence is also remembered by older townspeople as having been the home of Captain Charles H. Briggs, an illustrious former Mayor of Bolivar and Justice of the Peace of Harpers Ferry for forty years, who was first posted to the area as a Captain in the 1st Connecticut Cavalry I 1863 and 1864.Local lore has it that, before and during the war a medical doctor rented the property and saw patients there. General Thomas J. (Stonewall) Jackson is said to have written a letter to his wire that, form his quarters, he could see the physician's house across the street. The cannonball embedded in a downstairs fireplace dates from this period.The current owners purchased the property in 2001 and set about artfully restoring and renovating every inch of the house and its gardens. A large addition was built to the rear of the house to accommodate an up-to-date (yet appropriately aged) kitchen, a second floor sitting room and a studio bedroom on the third floor. Bathrooms and closets and a wraparound porch were also added at this time.The formerly unassuming brick structure has been brought to graceful perfection!
