Such a beautiful house! I would move in tomorrow if I could. Will be back soon!
Flagstone Sunday House is indeed a real, authentic "Sunday house." If you"ve ever been to Fredericksburg or even read about the area, you have probably seen that term. Sunday houses were used by the original settlers of Fredericksburg from the 1840"s as their little place in town as opposed to their farm in the country where they spent most of their time. Families often needed a place to stay in town for a day or two to attend church and do the family shopping or trading.
Flagstone Sunday House was built around 1900. The German Emigration Company issued lot number 369 to Maria Elisa Dattner in the latter part of 1846. The house was completely restored and decorated for use as a bed and breakfast cottage in 2011. While respecting all of the historical importance of the house, no stone has been left unturned when it comes to providing guests with all the touches today"s travelers enjoy.
You will appreciate the smart style and attention to detail as soon as you open the front door. The front room, an enclosed sleeping porch, offers two built in twin beds, perfect for turning a trip for two into a getaway for three or four! Next you enter the gracious den which boasts sophisticated style reminiscent of Architectural Digest! Above the drawing table you will find a unique touch...the white guest board, a large framed artist"s message board for you to share a drawing, a kind word, a poem or just a passing thought with the owners and future guests. What a fun touch, particularly since the owner is an artist!
The downstairs also offers a full kitchen and dining area, plus a bathroom with a charming tiled shower. Upstairs is the main king size bedroom, clothed in a soothing white color scheme. The bathroom for this bedroom is at the bottom of the stairs. (Keep in mind that part of this home"s charm is its multi-level design....BUT that does mean authentic, slightly narrow stairs. Only reserve this cottage if you are comfortable with stairs.)
As fabulous as all this is, the thing that will bring you back time and again to Flagstone Sunday House may be the amazing back yard. Off the dining room, you will find a large deck with sitting areas and a sweeping staircase leading down to the ivy covered lawn. Take a little time from life"s cares to walk among the branches, watch the birds, and put your feet up for a bit. With all these great amenities plus an excellent location just one block from Main Street and 3-4 blocks to the heart of shopping, Flagstone Sunday House is a treasured retreat!
