The Skinny: Set on quiet Hanover Street, in the lee of the Naval Academy chapel, this landmark mansion boasts enough space, luxury, and history to command a $3.2M price tag. Known alternately as the Peggy Stewart House or the Thomas Rutland House, the 4,800-square-foot brick colonial was completed in 1764 and once inhabited by Thomas Stone, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. In 1774, the house was home to loyalist merchant Anthony Stewart, whose ship the Peggy Stewart was burned along with its illicit cargo of tea in an episode that became known as the Annapolis Tea Party. A highlight, even among Annapolis' litany of historic homes, the Stewart House includes five bedrooms, four bathrooms, eight garage parking spaces, a roof deck, and an elegant rear garden, all on an unusually large lot.
