Main Level Details

Welcome to the Wilbur House - “Sunnyside” - this stunning and unique property combines beauty and gracious style. Built circa 1887, this Second Empire Victorian is one of the original estates on the Ashton-Colesville turnpike. Signature details abound - from the mansard roof and original windows to the indoor paneling, hardwood floors, ceiling roses, molding and fireplaces. A private driveway winds through the manicured gardens (with in-ground irrigation) to a paved walkway, broad front steps and a big, airy porch - one of three on the home. Double doors open onto a grand entrance - a beautiful staircase with hand-turned newel posts and spindles, paneled wainscoting, and original hardwoods. To the right of the entrance is the sun-filled “double parlor” with original floor-to-ceiling windows, a marvelous arched bay window overlooking the side yard and two fireplaces. To the left of the entrance is a large office with built-ins and a fireplace. This opens to a formal dining room with wainscoting and a fourth fireplace. At the back of the home is a skylit eat-in kitchen with exposed brick, and doors to a deck. A back staircase, butler’s pantry, mudroom with laundry and a half bath complete the main level.


Second Level Details

The second level offers four bedrooms and two full baths.


Third Level Details

The third level has three bedrooms, a sitting area, a fridge and wet bar and a full bath.


Lower Level Details

The grounds are perfect for outdoor living. A pergola covered in mature jasmine, wisteria and clematis is fully lit for dinners and parties. There’s also a hot tub and outdoor shower. This enchanting property is conveniently located for commuting, shops and restaurants, yet it is tucked away in a peaceful, tranquil setting. The home is an individual site on the Montgomery County Master Plan for Historic Designation. See state and county websites for information on historic preservation tax credits.
