The Gaslight House in the heart of historic Frederick, MD is a gorgeous Italianate rowhome dating back to the 1810s. The original structure was expanded several times, culminating in its characteristic L-shape by the mid-1880s. Its exquisite interior holds historic treasures such as a restored curved staircase, a grand front parlor, floor-to-ceiling windows, wood floors, antique picture molding, clawfoot tub, multiple fireplaces, butler's pantry, and perfectly marries them with the modern conveniences of the chef's kitchen and the expansive outdoor spaces that include the balconies, patio, in-ground pool and landscaped gardens.
Since November 2021 the iconic Gaslight House is home to the Gaslight Gallery which is showcasing contemporary art from across the country and international artists in a historic setting. The Gallery is open to the public on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 6 pm. Exhibits change on a monthly basis.
The previous owners of the Gaslight House were responsible for much of its preservation. For their efforts to restore the original windows and handcrafted shutters from 1855 they received the 2018 City of Frederick private stewardship historic preservation award.* The Frederick News-Post
Next time you visit the City of Frederick and stroll through the historic district, stop by Cynthia Scott's Gaslight Gallery at 118 E Church Street. You'll be able to admire some of the building's preserved historic charm - including the very feature after which the Gaslight House was named - as the artwork is displayed in the grand foyer and front parlor.
♥ It's always been the vintage, the old house charm and the original details that I adore the most, that draw me in, make my [REALTOR®] heart flutter, and prompt me to pause, to listen, and then to retell their stories. I specialize in finding and marketing charming homes that are unique and rich in character, or history, or both. I believe in preservation, second chances, saving the pink bathrooms, and front porch living. In this series I highlight charming homes that I am listing to find just the right buyer for or I am admiring with my special clients; or that have simply caught my eye while exploring the [historic] communities of Maryland and [far] beyond. Adore charming homes as much as I do? Then I'd love it if you'd follow me on Instagram, @onceuponahaus is where I grow my curated collection. ♥
