Historic Home : Modern Sensibilities
Welcome to Olive Street – the Amos-Godbey House, a magnificently curated renovation of a national and historic registry Old Town Georgetown masterpiece. This touch-under-half-acre estate has been thoughtfully and completely renovated with today’s modern conveniences while not sacrificing yesterday’s charm. A coveted CS Belford-built home with separate guest quarters, this is truly a Tiffany-style jewel box.
No detail was left untouched – from restored original long-leaf pine floors, to the curated antique doors, to the energy-efficiency updates, to the circa 1930s shed that was converted to a playhouse/artist’s retreat.
The impressive kitchen is anchored by an island wrapped in Carrera marble – which you find throughout along with butcher block for the counter space. A LaCornue range will make even the most discerning aficionado smile, along with Rohl fireclay sinks, sub-zero type custom built-in refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher and a secondary bar/beverage refrigerator. A view of the resplendent pool and backyard is available from the kitchen….
Right out the back door is a very-private-feeling backyard retreat, anchored by the pool which offers WIFI controlled lighting and water feature options. You may choose to lounge in the entertaining/bar area for a lemonade or cocktail. Or perhaps you’re thinking you’d like to sit around the fire – roast marshmallows or sip a glass of wine? And if you like to use your own herbs in your cooking, you can follow the path along to the herb and flower garden…
On one side of the property you will find the guest quarters – complete with kitchen and bath. Ideal for multi-generational living or entertaining visitors. On the other side of the property you will find the charming custom playhouse – which could become an artist’s retreat, yoga area or workshop…
