Historic Dutch Colonial duplex in Annapolis offered for $775,000

Just steps from the State House in Annapolis, this two-story, three-bedroom, 1 ½-bathroom townhouse comes with its own history.

Built in 1900, it is on land acquired by planter John Randall in 1804, and it stayed in his family for 125 years. According to the listing agent, Jim Chadwick of Long & Foster Real Estate, Francis Scott Key lived on the Randall property when he attended St. John’s College in Annapolis.

When the land was subdivided, Randall’s grandson built the duplex for one of his great-granddaughters. The front of the home has a porch and a swing, and faces the original courtyard. The backyard has a gate that leads to the State Circle via a path through the garden.

On the main level are two large living areas. High ceilings and original molding give the home a spacious feel. A stone fireplace commands attention as does the white wooden staircase in the center of the room. Graceful door arches lead from one room into another, and original heart pine flooring is found throughout the house.
