A Magnificent Mansion Brick house in Prince George's Gwyn Park. Manor, a chic, historic brick mansion with totally modern, high-end kitchen and loving architectural detail goes on the Prince George's market this month. Romantic since it was constructed in 1857, the home long has provided residents with all the extras inside, and the once-rural County's most charming brickwork on the outside. The home is located in Brandywine. Unlike the builders of other farms with plain brickwork, the young couple who built Gwyn Park ringed their home with seven courses of romantic brickwork along its top edge. It was a statement about their love, and remains so 160 years later. A two-year renovation completed in May, includes 3.5 new baths, 5 bedrooms including an en suite master, a double-sized living room with double fireplaces, an office, and an open-space kitchen alongside a large dayroom. Ceilings are 10-feet tall throughout the first and second levels. Heartwood pine floors grace those floors. The grand central entrance hall includes a three-story staircase. The original stair rails complete that rarest of residential offerings ~ a truly family mansion. Gwyn Park's exterior design is officially the County's only surviving dwelling distinguished by a particularly fine decorative molded brick cornice.~ Boxwoods and numerous trees provide an equally romantic outdoors setting to its 1 ~-acre grounds, which includes a two-car garage and a classic refurbished 170-year-old smoke house. Gwynn Park is the only such offering currently available in Prince George~s. It is the centerpiece of a surrounding residential development, which provides an block-long, treed boulevard to the mansion~s front door.Totally new inside, the restoration has introduced natural gas for the kitchen with top-end Samsung appliances. Roof, wiring and plumbing are entirely new. During the three centuries it touches, Gwyn Park has provided owners with success in family and fortune. I don't like leaving this,~ said a 20th century resident, ~the house has a soul.~ The young couple who first lived there in mid-1800s would boast 11 children. Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning official Howard Berger tells the Washington Post, A person sensitive to the character of this historic house would likely really appreciate the opportunity to live there. It~s quite a large house.~ The house was deemed eligible for historic rating because it ~possesses high artistic value, architectural distinction~workmanship and feeling.
