"Widehall" is the most acclaimed historic downtown waterfront estate in Chestertown MD, since 1769. The many stewards of this magnificent residence, including two Maryland governors and two US Senators, have been ambassadors of hospitality for both town folk and national leaders. Each have protected and enhanced its authentic beauty ... from the original mahogany hanging staircase (c 1769) to geothermal heating and air (c 2013). Widehall is quite special to our town. The more formal main floor rooms provide the ideal setting for both parties and intimate gatherings. The flow between each of the rooms is perfect. Three of the six wood burning fireplaces add only a part of the warmth and ambiance of the main level of this residence. The chilled air or warm summer breeze is steps away on the first of two grand verandas overlooking the Chester River, thoughtfully added in 1911. Ascending the mahogany stairs to the second floor maintains the elegant feel of a grand home but immediately establishes a feeling of comfort and relaxation with a large family room. Surrounded by three bedrooms, each with their private baths, there are two doorways to the second of the very large waterfront verandas. A former servants wing provides for a bath, laundry room and windowed closet space. The top floor (number three) boasts three bedrooms, two baths and an additional laundry. Architects of a by-gone era creatively used dormer space for exquisite closet and storage space. Currently, each bedroom is named in honor of an acclaimed figure with close connections to Chestertown and the Eastern Shore. Your journey is not quite finished. A gracious staircase, discreetly hidden behind a wainscoted door, brings you to the unmatched "Widow's Walk" or rooftop deck with the most spectacular views of the Chester River and Chestertown. In many cities, a visit to this rooftop would be worth the price of a hefty admission. Our beautiful town and its people want to welcome you to continue the history and stories of "Widehall". Prospective buyers should be informed of the vital socio-economic trend this small town of America is experiencing and that of its acclaimed Arts & Entertainment District. Yes, our weekly Farmer's Market is "gossip central" and awesome for river and farm fresh provisions .... but it is the community that makes us a great place to to live. From monthly First Friday evenings for gallery and shop visits to a variety of annual festivals that include Downrigging weekend, Legacy Day, the Chestertown Tea Party reenactment, Dickens of a Christmas, and more add to the vibrancy of our town with Widehall enjoying the best viewing action. The convenience of a deep water dock and great lawn combined with short-walks to morning coffee and fresh pastries, evening cocktails and fine dining is unparalleled on the Eastern Shore.
