"The Honeymoon Cottage" was commissioned by the namesake to The Admiral Tilp boat. The lore allows that Fred Tilp ( aka The Mark Twain of the Potomac for his unique story-telling of the history of the Potomac River) had this home built for his bride. The current caretakers since 1977 have carefully preserved this distinctive 1939 beauty. The mid-century St. Charles stainless steel kitchen was and is cool before stainless was trendy! Updated with a SubZero refrigerator and dishwasher this eat- in space will please a purist. The charming side porch is adjacent. The gracious living room with its gas fireplace is the hub of the house and opens to the oversized screened porch. Overlooking the magnificent garden is this private oasis. Further on the main floor is the sublime dining room with grass cloth walls, and a paneled study with powder room adjacent. Upstairs are two large bedrooms with two marble-stylized bathrooms. The lower level features another great office , family room or overflow space with decorative fireplace, full bath and separate laundry. The former garage (walk-out level) now makes great storage space and may have the potential to be added as finished space. Leaded glass windows, an oak carved bannister and cypress trimmed windows are some of the features that define quality craftsmanship of the past. This is the opportunity for someone to customize the kitchen if so desired and it is amazing the way it is! Seasonal river views and year round of the Capitol complete this distinctive home.
