Charles Town, W.V. | $425,000

A 1940 Colonial Revival house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, on a 0.5-acre lot

This house sits on a wide, tree-lined street near the center of Charles Town, less than a mile from a brewery, a used book store and a local history museum on Washington Street, the city’s main drag. It is about a mile from Old Opera House Theatre Company, established in 1911 and housed in a late 19th-century building, and within walking distance of a drugstore, a diner and a coffee shop.

Harpers Ferry is about 15 minutes away by car. Driving to Baltimore or Washington takes about an hour and a half.

Size: 2,796 square feet

Price per square foot: $152

Indoors: A path made from stones repurposed from a Harpers Ferry bridge leads from the street to the front door, which opens into a foyer with hardwood floors and a staircase to the second floor.

To the right is a living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a wall of built-in bookshelves. Across the foyer is a dining room with a crystal chandelier and built-in corner china cabinets. The dining room connects to a kitchen with quartz counters and stainless steel appliances, including an electric range. A sunroom and a full bathroom with a walk-in shower are also in this part of the house.

All three bedrooms are on the second floor, reached from the staircase in the foyer. To the right of the landing is the primary suite, which has a bedroom with a built-in window seat and a bathroom with a combined tub and shower. The other two bedrooms, across the hall, overlook mature trees in the backyard.

Half of the basement is partially finished; the other half has ample storage space and a side-by-side washer and dryer.
