Description

25 The Strand, built by James McCullough around 1827 after fire destroyed the original structure in 1824 along with most of The Strand. Located on the corner of Packet Alley, which was the connecting link for travelers coming from Philadelphia to the Baltimore, Washington areas. Imagine all the people that travelled this route and took up lodging waiting for the stagecoach and later the New Castle/Frenchtown Railroad to get the to the Elk River and the Chesapeake Bay. 25 The Strand, known as Boulden's Store for the last merchant, David Boulden, that operated the establishment, is now a single family dwelling. Enter through the double doors into a large living room flanked by bookcases on left and wood burning fireplace on the right, 10 foot ceilings and large storefront windows, continue via the hallway into the dining room featuring a built-in cabinet and high ceilings which flows into the fully equipped kitchen. The sunroom facing the river and a hallway 1/2 bath completes the first level. The curved winding steps take you to the second floor which consists of 3 ample sized bedrooms and 2 full updated bathrooms as well as a screened porch to relax and watch the ships go by. Continue to the 3rd level with a bedroom and full bath with clawfoot tub and plenty of storage space. Entertain your guests on the brick patio with established garden that opens to the historic Packet Alley. The full basement houses the gas boiler, gas hot water heater, central air handler and laundry. Original heart pine floors, large open hallways, built in cabinets, and moldings are all throughout the home. Come and live in the history and enjoy all that Historic New Castle has to offer. Centrally located between New York City and Washington DC. Detailed history available.
