The sought after Rockville neighborhood of West End Park holds many eclectic and interesting homes. "The Firehouse" is a well know landmark. The extraordinary firetruck garage was constructed in 1984 by a retired fire chief. A unique 45' x 56' Morton Pole Barn Garage was built in order to lovingly house and display antique firetrucks. The garage is ideal for servicing, restoring and storing up to 9 vehicles.
The attractive brick front of the garage features arched door openings, an octagon window and Cupola. It features 10' by 10' garage doors with automatic door openers. Additional ventilation includes interior windows, ceiling fans and a rear exhaust fan with automatic shutters. The steel building is extremely unique, especially in the city.
The garage has 3 interior rooms including a front watch office, a workshop with a storage closet, and a service office with double-door access. There is a 10' x 56' floored storage area above, easily reached by a tall rolling staircase ladder (included). The current owners specialized in restoring and repairing their modern and antique vehicles. Today the garage also features a Challenger 2 Post 9,000 LB Lift. The foundation and driveway are constructed with steel-reinforced concrete.
Yes, there is also a fine house! The 1966 brick cape cod with 3 finished levels is attached to the garage by an enclosed sun porch / breezeway. The living room has a brick wood burning fireplace, rich oak hardwood floors and a bright picture window. The deep kitchen has access to the sun porch and yard. A main level bedroom with full bath allows flexibility, it could be an office or provide one level living area for aging in place. Two upstairs bedrooms feature rich hardwoods and sunny skylights. The full, finished basement features real knotty pine paneling and built-in office shelving. The basement’s wood-stove creates a cozy area for friends and family to enjoy movies, music and recreation. There is a Generac Generator for back up power to the house and garage. The solar panels provide 3.5 Kwh of grid connected power to reduce Pepco bills.
