Description

The Historic Hillsinger House... Located just a few moments from Historic Ellicott City+GGs Main Street, this historic beauty has been lovingly maintained and thoughtfully updated, all the while retaining its historic charm. Identical, original porch railings, transom window, and a welcoming front porch give a hint of the history within the four walls In 1896, Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore, deeded the land on which this home and its neighbors sit to the Hillsinger Family, who built both these identical semi-detached homes over the next year. At the time, the area was known as +G+Ellicott+GGs Mills.+G- All four homes were originally owned by Steven and Sarah Hillsinger, proprietors of what was then Ellicott Mills' only funeral parlor, formerly located on the site of the Howard County Welcome Center, which was the former town Post Office. Eventually the Hillsingers+GG business was passed to a family member who renamed it Mac Nabb Funeral Home. Mac Nabb still operates in nearby Catonsville, only a few miles from the family+GGs original homestead in Ellicott City. The home is a wood frame, folk-style Victorian. Homes like this were the typical +G+worker village homes+G- in older mill towns like Ellicott's Mills. Homes such as these are considered +G+historically significant being associated with the growth and prosperity of the Frederick Turnpike, (Frederick Road), The old National Road from which goods such as tobacco and wheat transformed this region+GGs economy.+G- Simple and straight forward with modest flourishes indicative of the Victorian era, these were homes used by generations of families in the area that built the boom town of Ellicott City. Tucked into the hills behind the home and across the stream are one of the older graveyards in the area: the final resting place of over 100 souls mostly from Ireland, who built the railroads and industry that Ellicott+GGs Mills were known for. In 2005, a group led by an Eagle Scout from Historic Ellicott City+GGs own St. Paul+GGs Church spent over 300 hours clearing brush and marking grave locations and restoring the headstones. Inside, much of the original window moulding and trim has been preserved as a nod to the past with thoughtfully placed updated finishes throughout the home. The modern, sleek kitchen with stainless steel appliances, quartz counters, and herringbone tile backsplash is ready for the most discerning foodie to create culinary delights. Walking out of the kitchen to the backyard puts you right in the middle of a stunning sylvan scene with a babbling stream and bluestone patio. Located inside a closet in the modern half bath on the main level is a full-size laundry with a tankless water heater. Up the first set of original wooden steps to the second level shows the original preserved pine floors from when this home was built. A spacious front bedroom is accented with an original mantel piece from the home+GGs construction. A second bedroom is currently utilized as a dream-like walk-in closet, with a custom organization system. The full bath with large tub/shower at the back of the home overlooks the lush backyard and hills behind the home. Moving to the third floor, just up the second set of original steps is another large bedroom, tucked into the eaves of the home with a dormer perfect for a desk to overlook Frederick Road. Off street parking for one vehicle and ample street parking set this home apart from most others in the historic area.
