Fredericksburg, with all its modern changes, its yoga studios, sushi restaurants, new sky bars, and roof top eateries, has become something new. âNewâ in all the best ways a city can grow and mature. Now, living in town means walking everywhere and having everything you need blocks from your door. Butâ¦ the charm of the city, the old stone, the slate roofs, the red brick and colonial blue of the place, the things it has retained - as brownstones grew up out of nowhere and antique shops became micro brews and art galleriesâ¦ those things give it its soul. The spirit of Fredericksburg is its history. We are shaped by this old stone and these 18th century views. We are kinder because we are surrounded by hard parts of our past, more alive and more humble because of mausoleums and towering 100 year oak trees shading us from overhead. History is something that, here, we are not learning from a text book but living in, surrounded by. 1300 Caroline is part of that history. It is part of what made this place and sustains its quaintness: people who say hello on the street as you pass and neighbors who know your name.
1300 Caroline keeps this part of our past alive for us with its architecture, its thick plank wood floors, and cast iron fireplaces. Walking into the foyer you are reminded of how grand a historic home can be. The stairs curl upward and lead to spacious bedrooms. The master is huge, light filled, and has a large closet. There is a 3rd floor attic perfect for an office or childrenâs play area. The lower level has a 2nd kitchen, bath, and separate entry so it could be a in-law suite or small apartment. The main kitchen is open, with room for seating and a large center island. It feels homey and warm. The kind of place that makes you want to bake bread and gaze out on the immaculate English garden and brick patio. The dining area is perfect for a large gathering of family and friends and the living room is expansive with wooden beams and a central wood fireplace. The garage has extra storage, a fridge, laundry area, and a modern newly renovated upper apartment/ guest house. The house has 4 heating and cooling zones and, although historic, it has been updated with a clever eye on keeping the original feel of the home. The property just feels like Fredericksburg in all the best ways. Come experience a part of our history, come own a piece of Fredericksburg's past. The home can be converted back to a B&B and has two separate apartment spaces that allow a buyer some passive income if they decide to owner occupy. Both spaces have separate entry ways so no conversion is needed to create two rentals as part of the home.
