Welcome to the Jane Scott house located at 914 Highmarket Street in Downtown Historic Georgetown. This National Registry home is a fine example of pre-Revolutionary War era construction, being dated back to as early as 1734. The home rest on a foundation of handmade ballast brick set in an English bond. In the basement, you can easily see the brick foundation and the rough hewn timbers that are set on a North, South, East ,and West axis. The home was originally one room deep with a central hall. Additions have been made over the years. The front porch is definately the heart of the home! The deep space offers plenty of room for relaxation or dining. The living room and dining room both have handsome millwork including dentil work and impressive overmantels. The 9 over 9 windows are original to the home. Take note in the den of the beam that is "sistered" together. Currently the home has 3 bedrooms, 2 with fireplaces, and 3 full baths, but the side porch and third floor offer more opportunity for living space. Steps away from the structure is the completely restored Georgetown Kitchen house with large central fireplace, vaulted ceilings, full kitchen and bath. A living area and bedroom also make up the space. This structure is currently leased. Take note of the impressive door that used to be on the front of the house. The large lot behind the kitchen house is also part of the property and in one corner there is what appears to be the site of the Privy. Located two blocks from Front Street, the Jane Scott house a fine candidate to be used as a private home or bed and breakfast. More photos of interiors are to come.
