Elegantly set on one of the most historic streets in Annapolis, The Gassaway-Feldmeyer House at 194 Prince George Street boasts a truly extraordinary Victorian Italianate detached townhouse. Sharing a brick garden wall with the 18th century William Paca House, this home showcases some of the best and most iconic classic American architecture of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Paneled walnut entry doors with an arched transom open into a tile vestibule where beautifully carved, glass paneled double doors open into the incredible Foyer. A fitting entry for this stately abode, the open walnut staircase is adorned with a carved newel post and Anaglypta wall coverings, adding beautiful depth and character to the corridor. Double doors under a glass transom open into the formal Living Room, awash in natural light from four floor length arched windows. An arched Victorian fireplace with marble hearth and intricate moldings detail this amazing space. A cased portal with pocket doors leads into the adjoining Dining Room featuring a slate fireplace and a quintessential sitting area in a wide, floor length bay window.
The attached Butler’s pantry with built-in matching cabinetry provides access to the powder room and spectacular custom gourmet eat-in Kitchen. A vintage design hex-tile floor and pressed tin ceiling add to the classic nature of the space. The adjoining Morning Room features a fireplace and bay window with an inviting window seat.
An elegant curved staircase winds its way up to the Master Bedroom Suite with an arched Victorian fireplace, three large windows, and an attached Dressing Room with custom cherry cabinetry. The handsome Master Spa Bath enjoys custom cabinetry, a jetted soaking tub, and a cherry framed steam shower. The second level also features a spacious Family Room with a wide bay window, extensive custom built-in cabinetry, matching wet bar, and a fireplace. A second Bedroom with a fireplace as well as a hall Bath with a laundry closet complete this level.
Illuminated by a stained-glass window, the curved stair continues to the third level with two Bedrooms (each with a fireplace), a Bath with a footed soaking tub, and a rooftop deck presenting a breathtaking view of the Paca gardens and the Naval Academy Chapel dome, an ideal place to watch the Blue Angels streak overhead. A vaulted fourth level enjoys an Exercise Room and the lower level provides a secured, climate-controlled wine cellar.
An arched tunnel arbor covered in vines creates an almost fairytale entry into the beautiful, private back gardens. A brick patio surrounds the morning room, where a charming sitting area looks out over the boxwood hedges and pea gravel path. An owned, gated pad next to the house provides guaranteed parking.
An important example of Italianate architecture and included in the Maryland Historic Trust, this Victorian in-town manse boasts an exquisite restoration preserving the historic character of the home. Remarkable in quality, craftsmanship and design, 194 Prince George Street is a centerpiece of Annapolis fine living.
