CLASSICAL HISTORY! This Classical 3,514 Colonial is nestled on an oversized .41 acre lot and it was built by and for E.S. Adkins and his family. Adkins owned the largest building supply company on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and the home was built with the best building materials and by the best select craftsmen who worked for him. When you walk into the Entrance Foyer you will immediately notice the upgrades, that include hardwood floors, a curved stairway, a chandelier and pocket doors that open to the Living Room and Family Room to the Right and another set of pocket doors that open to the grand Dining Room to the Left. The Kitchen offers a large eat-in area as well as a separate 14'x8' Pantry. From the Kitchen there is a second door that leads to a private rear stairway that was used for the servants to go to their upstairs quarters and not disturb the family. There is also a hallway that has a door to a 14'x 8' Office that contains an elevator to the second floor hallway, and another door that opens to a 26'x14' space that is used as a Library. There is also a half bathroom adjacent to the Library. This space can also be used as a huge first floor Master Bedroom that has a private access to the Kitchen and the Entrance Foyer. The second floor offers five large Bedrooms, three full Bathrooms, and an additional room that is used as a Den but could also be used as an additional Bedroom. On the third level there is a large 20'x16'Bonus Room, two large Walk-In Closets or Storage Areas, and two Walk-In Attics, one of which has a full Bathroom. The home offers a large Basement for extra storage and 34'x14' front and side covered Porches that have Hardwood floors and Hardwood ceilings. The entire home has oversized rooms and the flexibility to make some rooms interchangeable as extra Bedrooms or extra Bonus Rooms. The home is less than 5 minutes to downtown Salisbury shops and restaurants and Tidal Health Hospital and less than 10 minutes to Salisbury University and the City Park and Zoo. The home is undergoing updating, whole house cleaning and repairs so it can present itself as the showcase home of the neighborhood.
