One Acton Place, known as “Acton Hall"—the only historic house on its original waterfront in Annapolis—features a meticulously renovated 18th-century all brick Georgian manor house of distinction and architectural significance. Framed by mature specimen trees and beautifully tended gardens, Acton Hall boasts a lineage dating back to the founding of Maryland.

Restored original flooring extends throughout the main level while classical crown molding accents the 10-and-a-half foot high ceilings. The living room, office, and library offer fireplaces, as well as jib doors to the back veranda. The family and dining rooms both feature fireplaces and the dining room provides access to the kitchen with granite counters and professional grade stainless appliances. The attached breakfast room boasts a full width window wall to the greenhouse.

The second level features a master bedroom suite with a fireplace, dressing room, master spa bath, and a bay looking out over the lawns down to Acton Cove. Two additional en-suite bedrooms share this level. The lower level enjoys a large wine cellar. Adjoining the main house, an 850 square-foot carriage house apartment features a living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, and bath.

A spectacular covered porch spans the back of the home looking out over the pool and pool house, down the lawns, and across Acton Cove, connecting to Spa Creek. A boat house services the deep-water dock with two boat slips with hook ups. A two-car garage, circular drive, and off-street parking provide parking places for seven cars. Boasting exquisite renovations on nearly an acre in an unparalleled location in Annapolis, Acton Hall is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of American history.
