Welcome to 217 South Fairfax, one of Old Town's most outstanding and desirable properties. The Sanford Dempsey House is an in-town historic estate that offers modern luxury and enduring craftsmanship. Built Circa 1780, the home has been masterfully expanded and updated to modern luxury standards. With over 9,000 sf of luxe living space, the home has 6 bedrooms, 6 and 1/2 bathrooms, and impressive rooms for entertaining and comfortable living. A double garage and expansive driveway offer private off-street parking for 5 cars - right in the heart of Old Town's historic district. The property boasts a subterranean theater/media room, large chefs kitchen and catering pantries, a guest suite with its own kitchen, bath and living rooms, and an historic smoke house recently converted into a SMART office. Extensive handcrafted moldings, original wide-plank hardwood flooring, and six fireplaces with hand-carved limestone mantles set this home apart. The property has been upgraded to modern technical standards with cat 5/cat 6 cabling, cameras and Mobotix panels throughout the house for one-touch controls for Savant and smart home automation. Located only 2 blocks from King Street and the waterfront, the house sits in a prime location and on a spacious double lot. The quarter acre lot is graced by lush lawns and manicured specimen gardens, including a trellised wisteria which surrounds a lovely outdoor patio. 217 South Fairfax -- Old Town's finest address.
