If you are buying a house in historic Old Town, you know it is bound to come with some secrets. But this house has a secret so special it is hidden underneath its own trap door. Step into 423 Queen, and step down into your own speakeasy! Yes, the lower level has been converted to a hideaway speakeasy complete with a trap door. It's the coolest place for cocktail making and movie watching.

Built in 1815, that charming blue exterior draws you in immediately. The front door opens to the light-filled, south-facing living room that easily flows into the formal dining room. Use the nook on the right as an office or simply for collectibles. The large kitchen features custom cabinetry, a gas range, granite countertops, a built-in coffee bar hutch, and lots of counter space.

Out the back door you'll find a large deck perfect for cooking and dinner alfresco and a deep, expertly landscaped backyard. Extensive hardscaping and lush landscaping create the perfect outdoor living areas.

Upstairs you'll find the primary suite. The en-suite bathroom has it all-a stand up shower, clawfoot tub, and a vanity that makes getting ready for the day a breeze. The enormous, custom built, walk-in closet is every fashionista's dream. Laundry is also in the en-suite making day-to-day housekeeping convenient. Skylights overhead bring the sunshine in. The second bedroom suite is just down the hallway complete with windows overlooking the front of the house, a large wall of closets and a full bath.

Through a trap door in the coat closet on the main level you'll find the stairs to the coolest speakeasy. A fun space to practice your craft cocktail skills, entertain, sing karaoke, and watch movies.

423 Queen puts you in the center of historic Old Town--3 Blocks from Founders' Park and the Potomac River and 2 Blocks to King St and its numerous shops and restaurants. Enjoy the proximity to the Torpedo Factory art galleries and classes, the weekly farmers market, Dyke Marsh Wildlife Preserve, sailing, kayaking, and The Mount Vernon bike trail. Lots of transportation options are also close by include Metro subways and buses (a stop 2 blocks away), Amtrak trains and Reagan National Airport (DCA). The location makes commuting to major employers, including the Amazon HQ, U.S. Capitol, White House, Pentagon, hospitals, universities, museums, and major federal departments easy.

**Offers due Monday, May 27th at noon.
