About 28 Edgehill Street

For 80 years, two generations of the same family lovingly cared for this historic Mercer Hill home and it shows, particularly in the thoughtfully planned gardens, lawns and charming gated pathways that were recognized by the Smithsonian Archives. Named “Gray Shutters” by the owners, both passionate gardeners, the grounds feature an abundance of azaleas, pear trees, heirloom roses and a hidden cutting garden to supply the interior with copious blooms. Interestingly, the house is actually two 19th-century structures joined as one. Subtle clues, like variations in ceiling height and trimwork, substantiate the story and enhance the home’s character. The formal rooms are separated by tall pocket doors in their original stained finish, while a library lined with casement windows and French doors was once a covered porch. With its generous size, beautiful backyard view and access to the driveway, the kitchen is poised to become a hub of household activity. Likewise, 2 full baths are ready for updates, but big enough to accommodate all the amenities you envision. One opens directly to the largest of 3 bedrooms, which features a decorative fireplace, while the second bath is tucked beside a sweet dressing room or office. Take a moment to admire the wide floorboards and simple, yet stunning, details of the staircase while making your way to the third floor. A pretty demilune window brightens the landing leading into a storage room for treasured belongings or, with some sprucing up, the perfect place for hours of play. It is rare to find a home with this much historic integrity, and only a quarter mile from downtown! Readying it for today’s style of living will be a rewarding endeavor.
