507 Washington Street
Located in the very sought after ''Point'' neighborhood in downtown Beaufort, John Fripp Chaplin House, circa 1810, is only a short walk to restaurants, the downtown marina and shopping. Rich in history, the house has been tastefully restored and offers beautiful heart pine floors, with high ceilings all flooded with natural light. Wide, wrap around porches welcome guests and capture the southern sea breeze. The house was built in the classic Beaufort ''T'' architectural style, with beautiful living and dining rooms, both featuring exceptional millwork, flanking the entrance hall. Unusual for a house of this period, the house also contains a ''great room'' style family room/kitchen that spans the width of the home.
