Own a piece of history with one of Oxford's most unique and storied homes. Originally built as a schoolhouse and later the workshop of renowned sailmaker Downes Curtis, the "Sail Loft" was restored in 2005 by the prestigious Encore Sustainable Architects firm. The restoration won three awards including the Washingtonian Award for Distinctive Residential Design and the Historic Resources Merit Award from the American Institute of Architects. An inverted floor plan takes advantage of stunning views of Town Creek and the Hinckley luxury boat yard from all three floors. On the first floor, a spacious master bedroom with ten-foot ceilings and six large windows opens through handsome French doors onto the back yard and includes a huge walk-in closet and a bathroom featuring a clawfoot bathtub and pedestal sinks. Two en suite bedrooms with blue-tiled showers complete the first floor, which features a one-of-a-kind curving, wavy central hallway. The second floor includes a powder room and a cavernous great room with ten-foot ceilings, kitchen, large island, dining area, living room, and a playful bed swing perfect for naps or overnight guests. The unfinished third floor attic is plumbed for a bathroom and could be converted into an additional bedroom with a sitting area opening through another set of French doors onto a deck with the best view in Oxford. A guest cottage in the front yard adds a fourth bedroom and full bath with a living room and kitchenette. The property is a short walk from the beach, town park, Scottish Highland Creamery, Oxford Market, Robert Morris Inn, and Capsize restaurant. Raised three feet in 2001, the Sail Loft easily weathered Hurricane Isabel and stands tall as the literal and figurative high point in this charming historic town.
