Leithiser House is one of the grand historic colonials in Havre de Grace! She still has every shingle of her original slate roof. The property has had no pesticides or herbicides used on it for the last 2 years. The gardens are full of native pollinators, as well as apple trees. The 3 ½ story Spring blossoming magnolia frames the library and sunroom views, making it feel like you’re in the country.
The third floor Owner’s suite will make you feel like you’re on staycation every day!
She has a 42 point of entry state of the art alarm system, with option to connect to 911 for a small monthly fee. The second floor houses an intimate library space as well as a full bath and 3 bedrooms.
The first floor houses the glorious living and dining rooms with parquet hardwood floors that are quarter sawn oak with cherry and apple inlays. We’re told they’re one of only 7 remaining floors left in the area done by a local craftsman back in the day. The living room also boasts French doors, a working/cleaned/inspected fireplace as well as custom built in bookcases. The dining room houses a gorgeous built in Colonial china cabinet. Our local locksmith was able to get the skeleton key working in it as well as several other doors in this home. The kitchen was last remodeled in the 80s and has a fun diner like vibe! You’ll find a convenient ½ bath off of it. The sunroom is so peaceful and cozy.
When you head to the basement, take note of the 2” thick solid wooden doors, one closing off the ‘bunker room’ under the sunroom. The basement has great potential to be turned into an in-law suite or a quaint Airbnb space.
The 600 block of S Washington Street has the perfect generational mix-from a baby to a nonagenarian and every age in between. Everyone looks out for each other.
Leithiser Store is now the Blue Heron. Bahoukas has that sweet collection of Leithiser memorabilia as well as the town’s famous Havre de honey, among so many, many wonderful antiques from every decade! Our downtown and waterfront areas offer much for everyone- you and your future guests alike.
The 4 second floor doors are all keyed in the same fashion as Vandiver Inn and can be used in like manner, if you so desire. There are 2 unique Master keys that will convey as well as 2 room keys/door.
Electrical system was given a tweak and upgrade the morning of listing, including a brand new electric panel door. BGE installed a new long lasting battery in the gas meter last Winter. The functional sump pump and conveying dehumidifier keep the basement super dry, which is vital in a bayside city.
We hope you’ll stop by over this weekend and see if Leithiser House would be a great fit for you! Schedule your appointment today because She won't last long !!!!!!!
