How would you like to have a business in a historic property? Wow your clients/customers in this unique building currently used a a residence but can be switched to commercial (check with Town of Denton). Introducing for the FIRST time offered on the public market since THE 1883 OLD SCHOOL HOUSE (tax records only go back to 1900). A property so special it is listed on THE NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES (NRHP) and for preservation the MARYLAND HISTORICAL TRUST (MHT). This opens the door for some certified tax credits for approved (from MHT) improvements and restrictions. One may also want to check the possible matching grants through MHT for restoration to see what qualifies. Currently this home is used as a residential 2642 sq foot dwelling featuring 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath and 2 half bathrooms. This home can switch gears for commercial use (previously was the popular restaurant The Lily Pad Cafe) and is in the Denton zoning district designated CBC or Central Business Commercial. For commercial l use one must contact the Denton planning office for permitted uses subject to site plan review and approval from the planning commission. The National Register of Historic Places describes it as "a building with a Latin cross plan and several features of the Gothic Revival style, built about 1883." The style of the architecture gives the unique look often found in the design of churches. The windows are pointed arch with 4/4 Gothic sash and shutter blinds with louvered sections over raised panel ones.
