Sitting prominently at the intersection of Union Avenue and Green Street in historic Havre de Grace, Maryland, the Aveilhe-Goldsborough home is as rich in history as it is in character. This is your opportunity to live in a one of a kind home in a prime location. Enjoy popular town restaurants, charming shops, marinas and beautiful views of the Chesapeake Bay. Constructed in 1801 by Frenchman and inventor, Jean Baptist Aveilhe, the home is one of only four structures to have survived the burning of the town by the British in 1813. A wrought iron ring on the exterior wall marks the spot where a cannonball flew into the top corner of the house. The home features French style and design with double louvered shutters over the doorway, scalloped design near the roof, and keystones over each window. Original building materials throughout the home such as handmade brick, 400 year old timber and stunning white pine plank flooring preserves the home’s historical richness. The current owner of sixteen years has completed thoughtful and extensive home renovations including plumbing and electrical updates to meet modern standards; original floors, walls, and staircases were stripped, re-varnished, re-plastered and or repainted; ceilings were replaced and strengthened; a complete replacement of slate roof; chimneys were rebuilt and recapped using Blue Stone; exterior stucco was recovered with high strength stucco; and the front porch was replaced and strengthened in 2020 to its original appearance. From the authentic and rare American chestnut hand railings and staircase, exposed wood beams and brick walls to the six fireplaces and built-ins throughout there are so many intricate details to love in this historic home. Kitchen renovations include new cabinetry, countertops and tile flooring. It’s a space ready and waiting for finishing touches. High level and durable 1800’s craftsmanship keeps the home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The completely renovated original smokehouse sits in the spacious side yard where there is plenty of room for play and entertaining. Havre de Grace is a beautiful and friendly waterside community with many parks, restaurants, shops, and tons of scheduled annual fairs, festivals, parades and outdoor concerts. Schedule your visit today and let 300 North Union Avenue transport you to an era of stunning architectural styles and outstanding beauty and charm.
