Upon setting your gaze upon 408 Hanover Street, the rich tapestry of history woven into this iconic residence becomes instantly palpable! This Greek Revival masterpiece now awaits its next discerning owners. Originally constructed in 1848, this elegant dwelling has been meticulously preserved & thoughtfully modernized over the past decade by its present owners. Boasting a grand total of 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, and an expansive 5,200 square feet, it presides majestically upon a nearly 10,000 square-foot corner lot; a prized gem in the heart of Downtown Fred'burg. Within this coveted locale, an array of unparalleled shopping, dining, cultural, & recreational pursuits lie mere minutes away. Delving into its history, 408 Hanover holds the esteemed title of the Duff Green House, named after one of its more famous residents. Echoes of its past reverberate still – the Civil War left an indelible mark, as evidenced by a cannonball embedded in an upstairs wall. Timeless features abound, including exquisite Flemish bond brickwork, expansive nine by nine windows gracing the first floor, & the commanding presence of Greek Doric front columns. Delving deeper into the property's expanse, meticulous enhancements have transformed the outdoor spaces. Native flora graces the backyard, accompanied by the charm of dogwoods, a wisteria-draped arbor, & a pergola that beckons outdoor dining. A rectangular pond, firepit enclave, & storage shed adorn this expanse, culminating in one of Downtown's largest yet most private back yards, a highlight of local garden tours. The resplendent front porch stands as a symbol of the 'Burg, with its stately columns and meticulously tended shrubbery. The granite steps and distinctive brass railings leading to the entrance boast a prestigious lineage – they once adorned the U.S. Capitol. Stepping across the threshold, the essence of refinement and history envelops you. The resplendent 12-foot ceilings, original polished silver door knobs, lustrous hardwood pine floors, & sparkling chandeliers coalesce to create an ambiance of timeless grandeur. Highlights on the main level encompass the family room reminiscent of a library, complete with built-in shelving & a gas fireplace; a wood burning fireplace creates a cozy office/study; twin parlors separated by pocket doors, each adorned with exquisite original chandeliers; from France & frescoed ceilings. The main floor includes a convenient half bath, a first-floor bedroom with full bath & a sunroom. A 2022 renovation bestowed the kitchen, introducing honed marble countertops & backsplash. A custom island & coffee bar was added to the existing custom maple cabinetry. Stainless steel appliances feature a Viking range, dual dishwashers, a Sub-Zero wine fridge, & a warming drawer, complete the culinary haven. Ascending the curved staircase, the "cannonball room" awaits: once a sunporch, it now includes a full bath. The primary bedroom boasts a wood burning fireplace & ample closet space enhanced by modern organizing systems. Upstairs unveils a total of three bedrooms, three full baths, & a convenient laundry setup, with one bedroom seamlessly adaptable as a prime home office. A majority of the plumbing fixtures in the home are Perrin and Rowe. Journeying to the basement reveals a mother-in-law suite or potential Airbnb endeavors. Comprising one final bedroom & a full bath, this level features a fully-equipped kitchen adorned with high-end stainless-steel appliances, white cabinetry, & a farmhouse sink. Two fireplaces & full-size windows infuse the space with light. In addition, a finished workout room or recreation room, there is plenty of finished & unfinished storage. Beyond the enchantment of Downtown Fred'burg, commuting convenience is assured, with with the Fred'burg VRE station merely five blocks away, and key I-95 exits, including Route 3, Route 17, and Massaponax, accessible within a brief 10-minute drive. Each room of 408 Hanover Street is truly special!
