I’m not exaggerating, this home is gorgeous! Filled with updates that are thoughtful, practical and beautiful. If you’ve wanted to live in downtown Frederick and you want move-in ready…this home should be a contender! You’ll love how the high-end modern amenities compliment the historic charm. Truly well-done! Let’s take a tour of 235-A East Church Street:

235-A East Church Street Frederick MD
With three generous bedrooms and 2.5 baths, all finished exquisitely, this nearly 2000 square foot semi-detached home has four floors of well-designed living space. From the 10 foot ceilings on the first floor, to the fourth floor loft and the finished basement rec room, there is a space for every function you can think of. It also has an oversized back yard, something you don’t always find in downtown Frederick.
With a recent renovation, all the important things have been attended to:
- a new dual zone HVAC system
- an updated 200 amp electrical panel
- Refinished hardwoods throughout
- New kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops.
- Newly finished bathrooms boasting high end finishes.
If I Lived at 235-A East Church Street…
Since Chris and I already live in Downtown Frederick, we’ve got the inside scoop. We enjoy the walkable, friendly, and hip neighborhood. We love all the amenities that are only a few blocks away. If I lived in this house, though, there are a few things that I would really enjoy!
- First of all, I would get up in the morning and shuffle down the block to my favorite coffee shop, Frederick Coffee Co., and get my morning cuppa. (I’d probably even go in my slippers that look like boots if you don’t look too close…shhh, don’t tell🤫)
- Then I’d stop by Glory Doughnuts (practically across the street)…I could see an expanding waistline in my future…except for the fact that you can walk everywhere when you live downtown… that might help mitigate against that scary waistline. The Historic District in Frederick is extremely walkable.
- Then I would spend a few luxurious minutes with my breakfast basking in the sun in the front sitting area. If it was summer, the back porch would be delightful, or the upstairs balcony. So many great choices for my morning coffee!
A Typical Day at 235-A Church Street
Since Chris and I work from home, after breakfast, I would find it a joyful experience to make that amazing loft
my our home office! (It’s debatable whether I’d share). I would be forever inspired by the exposed brick and ceiling beams. The windows have a lovely view and ensure that light enters the space. Really, I could be so productive here!
Cooking would be an absolute delight in this kitchen! Chris does most of the cooking, but I might be persuaded to help out, just to pretend like I know what I’m doing. But I think I’d need a fancy apron. Again, look at that light!
I’m sure we would entertain often in this house. The dining room has ample room for guests…but it’s also something to show off! Just look at the paneling…and the original fireplace surround! The light fixture is pretty cool too. And yes, those are french doors if you want to close the dining room off from the living room, but still have light. And can you see the transom window over the door to the kitchen? They’ve kept so much historic charm throughout this home. Stunning!
A Casual Evening at 235-A Church Street
This house has a finished basement that would make a perfect rec room for my kids and grands! I see many fun nights with room for a large comfy sectional, a foosball table, and a big screen with surround sound.
Or, if it’s a nice night…I’m sending them all to the backyard! We’ll play games; it’s perfect for some croquet. We’ll light up the chiminea and maybe blow the diet with some’mores. And don’t you think that back yard is immense? I’m thinking it’s screaming for a pool. That would probably be my only addition to this immaculate home.
Enjoying the End of the Day at 235-A Church Street
Bedrooms and Bathrooms are always iffy in an historic home. They are non-negotiable in my point of view. When they are tiny and dysfunctional, it’s over imo. NOT the case here. Check out the master suite:
I found some surprises for a historic home in downtown Frederick: two spacious closets in the master, no pass-through bedrooms, spacious high ceilings, and look at that light! Dreamy.
The bathrooms do not disappoint. High end, tasteful finishes in all of the bathrooms.
Nearby Historic District Amenities
Living in downtown Frederick has it’s many charms. My favorites include:
- Date night at Cacique Restaurant. It’s less than 3 blocks away. They have the best fajitas!
- Pick up a bottle of wine from Viniferous, 227 Market Street, about 4 blocks away. Ask Bob for a wine suggestion for whatever you’re cooking or bringing home from one of the many great restaurants downtown.
- Walking 4 blocks to the bank and stopping by any of the several amazing dress shops on Market Street or Patrick Street…or gift shops, tea shops, book shops, florist, you get it.
- The Farmer’s Market is a couple of blocks away.
- Happy hours…way too many of them! (No need to get an Uber)
- All of the fun celebrations and festivals on Carroll Creek.
- First Saturdays.
- A wonderful library 2 blocks away.
- The Wine Kitchen! The best fancy place ever! I would even walk there in heels, it’s only two blocks away.
- Baker Park is a 10 minute walk. Who doesn’t love the summer concerts?!
If you are intrigued with living downtown, don’t miss this beautiful home! The owners are sweetening the pot with 2 years pre-paid parking in the nearby Church Street parking garage.
