Great Gathering Spaces at 429 Prospect Avenue, Harpers Ferry WV

The wainscoting from the keeping room continues to the large sunny dining room on the back of the house that is waiting for holiday breakfasts, dinner parties and jigsaw puzzles.  On the opposite side of the keeping room is the spacious living room with a set of solid doors – a great way to close off the room for a rowdy game of Monopoly.  A set of glass doors on the adjacent wall separate the space from the office, which can also be accessed from the exterior door on the left side of the porch.  This room could also be used as an entry hall, library, or sitting room.  A pretty, updated kitchen with tall cherry cabinets and stainless appliances, a full bath, and mud/laundry room on the back of the home complete the first floor.
