Lauretum, an 1881 country house built in the grand manner, defines a period of American history when architecture was at it more picturesque and exuberant. An exemplar of the Queen Anne style, Lauretum, Latin for "laurel grove". This unusual landmark building was designed by the renowned architect, Edmund George Lind, commissioned by the prominent Vickers family, is rich in 19th c. history. An accomplished builder of the time, R.K. Pippin was the local contractor. Fine Pippin buildings are scattered throughout Chestertown emphasizing his importance as a builder. Approached by a gravel driveway that winds rising from the County road. Other aspects of Lauretum indicate the tasteful and selective influence of a master architect. Details include pierced fretwork, Oriole window, granite sills, elaborately paned window lights, Jib-way doors that allow the interior to open to the extensive open porches. The extremely high ceilings, room transoms and the many windows speak to the importance to the late Victorian penchant for cooling rooms and fresh air in designs of that period. Lauretum has been a residence, a Bed & Breakfast and currently the cooperate offices of a national firm. The construction is stucco over solid thick brick walls. The current owners relocated the kitchen while bringing the kitchen into the very modern era. It features fine architectural details, fireplace and high-end appliances. Please call for an extensive brochure on the many details of this fine property located within Chestertown on six acres high on a prominent hill. A National Register property. Lauretum is site on the Civil Trail. Because of its size, location and architectural prominence one can envision Lauretum is so many ways. A tour will bring those used to light.
