||TWO ROOMS ARE CURRENTLY USED AS BEDROOMS. TWO OTHER ROOMS COULD BE CONVERTED TO BEDROOM USE.
Two blocks from VRE station.
Live across the street from the lane GEORGE WASHINGTON trod each day on his way to school, and a few doors away from where JAMES MONROE brought his bride, and near where MATHEW FONTAIN MAURY lived. (Today's neighbors are great folks, too!)
This house was once a boys' military school and was known as PHILIPS' MILITARY ACADEMY.
The house was built as a "double" (two family) house and was converted to single family use in 1972. It faces roughly east.
DOWNSTAIRS - NORTH SIDE
The downstairs on the north side contains the north stair hall (22 x 7), living room (21 x 17), dining room (17 x 12), kitchen 13 x 7, plus an "ell"), and powder room.
DOWNSTAIRS - SOUTH SIDE
The downstairs on the south side contains three rooms -- the study (16 x 11), the library (16 x 11), and the conference room (13 x 12) -- which are currently used as a suite of offices for a home based business. The south stair hall (22 x 7), and a storage room/pantry (12 x 4) are also on the south side of the house.
Upstairs you'll find the master bedroom (22 x 17), dressing room (17 x 10 -- it was once a bedroom), guest bedroom (15 x 11), two baths, and two upstairs halls.
There are 6 fireplaces (3 working) in the house. The mantle and raised panel overmantle in the living room is from an even older house.
The back garden is fenced and landscaped for privacy and is divided into north and south garden "rooms" by a brick wall. There is a garden shed and a wood shed which have both been on the property for many years.
There are also 3 brick patios (one of them covered by a wisteria arbor) and a small fish pool.
Trees in the garden include 2 apple trees, a magnolia, an elm, and a 95 foot tall ash. There are a number of mature boxwoods, an apple japonica, a spirea, a camelia, daylilies, Virginia blue bells, many more prennials, and lots of bulbs.
The neighborhood is one of the most attractive and sought after in Fredericksburg and is frequently featured on Virginia Garden Week tours and the Christmas Candlelight Tour sponsored by Historic Fredericksburg Foundation, Inc.
The house across Dixon Street was the first in town to sell for $1,000,000. The two houses directly across Caroline Street are interesting because the one on the left became the largest house in town when the most recent addition was added to it, and the house on the right was AUCTIONED for $1.1 million dollars in January 2005.
Public schools in Fredericksburg continue to improve on SOL test results, and there are several highly thought of private schools (religious & secular) including FREDERICKSBURG ACADEMY.
