Spy House of the Week: Trippe Ave Traditional


The current median list price for Talbot County is $494,500 so this week I thought it would be interesting to spotlight a house whose price point was close to the median. This house is listed at $415,000 and is located at the end of a quiet street at the edge of Easton’s Historic District.

I liked the curb appeal of this colonial style brick two-story original house and its  one-story addition that added a family room, screened porch and master suite to the main floor. A curvilinear walk with shrubbery and shaded by a large tree is a very pleasant approach to the front door with its Chippendale trim.   

The family room has a pitched ceiling and its focal point is a fireplace flanked by accent windows with diamond shaped muntins. French doors lead to the screened porch which is a wonderful outdoor room. There are hardwood floors throughout the house and the rooms are generously sized.   

The alley at the side of the house leads to a parking pad sized for two cars.  Large trees shade the patio in the rear yard that is accessed from the library and makes a perfect place to enjoy a good book!
