Welcome to 17 N. Altamont Avenue, a residence that seamlessly blends history with vintage flair! Nestled on a tranquil street with picturesque mountain views, this home boasts a prime location that is just a 5-minute stroll from Thurmontâs Main Street and Community Park, offering the best of both worlds. Step into the rich history of Thurmont with this Victorian-style colonial, built in 1915 on the grounds of Thurmontâs inaugural school. With a storied past as the parsonage for Weller Church and the backdrop for numerous local weddings between 1918 and 1953, this residence is a piece of living history. Spanning 2,060 finished square feet, complemented by an additional 1,600+ square feet of basement and attic space, this home invites you to shape it to your preferences. Discover a harmonious blend of modern updates and charming original details, from holdover hardware and pocket doors to a claw foot bathtub and ornamental radiators (no longer in use). The covered front porch sets the stage for the timeless elegance that awaits within. Key upgrades include a recent salt-water pool conversion (2022), a 2-zone HVAC system (2020), a rear sunroom addition, energy-efficient tilt-in style windows throughout, a spacious rear deck with an electric awning, and a French drain for exterior drainage. As you enter, the wrap-around front porch welcomes you to a residence defined by hardwood floors, high ceilings adorned with numerous ceiling fans, and an abundance of windows bathing the space in natural light. The main level unfolds with a front study/living room, a sitting room (formerly used for wedding ceremonies), a formal dining room, a well-appointed kitchen with bay window and walk-in storage pantry, a sunroom, and a convenient half bath with an auxiliary shower conversion. The jewel of the home, the expansive 4-season sunroom addition, serves as a family room featuring a gas fireplace and glass doors opening to the deck and backyard oasis. The fully fenced backyard, a highlight of the property, beckons relaxation and entertainment with its deck, salt-water pool embraced by trees for privacy, a serene meditation garden, a fenced dog run/garden, green space, and several storage sheds. Notably, remnants of the original hearth/chimney for the homeâs âsummer kitchenâ stand in the side yard, offering a charming historical touch. Ascend to the second level via the front or back staircase, revealing four bedrooms, a spacious walk-in storage closet, and a versatile bonus room ideal for a yoga/art studio, homework area, or office. The full bathroom at the end of the main hallway on the second level features a period claw foot tub, a pedestal sink, and a stand-alone shower. A staircase in the fourth bedroom leads to a full-size attic boasting high ceilings, windows on all sides, and brick chimney accents â an 800+ square foot space with the potential to become the ultimate ownerâs suite or office. The basement level, accessible via Bilco doors, provides ample storage and outdoor access. This vintage gem has been showcased on the Historical Societyâs Annual Christmas Tour, proudly standing on a half-acre corner lot that offers abundant living space both indoors and outdoors. Enjoy the sought-after location just around the corner from Main Street, featuring local favorites like Kountry Kitchen, 10Tavern, a Salon & Spa, Barber Shops, Goodwill, and more. Thurmont Community Park, with its tot-lot, picnic areas, basketball courts, tennis court, walking/jogging trails, and pet-friendly ambiance, is within easy reach. Proximity to places of worship and schools adds to the convenience. Perfect for commuters, Route 15 provides swift access to Frederick, Gettysburg, Baltimore, and other major commuter routes. Donât miss the opportunity to own and cherish this well-maintained vintage property!
