One of this home’s “wow” features is its sweeping, three-floor cantilevered stairway with a mahogany handrail. Pause at the first-floor landing to admire the U.S. Naval Academy brass medallion embedded into the banister.

The home originally was a boardinghouse built by Anne Jeffers, the first female State Librarian of Maryland, according to Annapolis Home Magazine.

The current owners have invested in an extensive renovation that restored this home to its original 20th century character. Among other things, the exterior —which formerly was painted pink — is now a soothing blue-gray.

This house has three gas fireplaces, and new white-oak floors have been installed in the foyer.

A 1950s addition along the rear of the house provides a period-appropriate illusion of a sun porch and contains the kitchen and breakfast room. In addition to the striking blue cabinets, the kitchen features marble countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances and antique lighting.

A second-floor family room leads to a spacious rooftop balcony. The bathrooms are equipped with heated floors. And the finished lower level includes a full second kitchen, a bedroom, bathroom and laundry room.

The rear addition opens onto a curved brick stairway. It descends onto a bricked patio that is large enough for outdoor dining and has a small landscaped garden. The patio is surrounded by hedges providing a feeling of privacy amid the bustle of activity from nearby boutiques, restaurants and the waterfront.
