Property Description

One of a kind farmhouse compound includes updated main house with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths with wrap around porch, stone spring house, 2 car detached garage, huge shed/workshop with electricity, old Maryland bank barn, plus two spring fed stocked ponds on 10 acres. Successfully used as an Airbnb - plus has potential as an event site, landscaping business or just a charming place to call Home. ***** The main part of the house is over one hundred years old with a huge stone fireplace with ventless gas logs in the living room and direct access to the wrap around porch. Plus another colonial style gas fireplace in the traditional dining room. An incredible gourmet chef's kitchen with copper farmhouse sink, granite counters, wine fridge, stainless steel appliances, ceramic tile floors, top of the line cabinetry, wet bar/butler pantry and breakfast bar offer a great cooking and gathering place. An addition provides a huge main level bedroom suite with a sitting area, an updated full bath and its own entrance with access to a mud room with laundry and powder room. Plus a door to step out onto its own private adjacent patio. Hardwood floors continue from the main level to upstairs with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. ***** The expansive primary bedroom has a separate enclosed sleeping porch perfect for a nursery, office or sitting area. A cedar closet and another large closet give you plenty of storage space. The updated bath could be found in a model home with ceramic tile floor, soaking tub and a frameless shower glass door. ***** Two more good size bedrooms share an updated hall bath that features exposed stone from the chimney. A reading nook and another full laundry room complete the upstairs. ***** The views of the Catoctin Mountains from the property are priceless. Every room in the house has a peaceful bucolic view. The wraparound porch evokes a movie scene of drinking a mint julep while enjoying the view of the spring fed ponds and classic red barn. ***** The barn, made of adze cut mortise and tenoned chestnut timber, needs some attention to be usable. Several stalls, a chicken coop and fenced paddock are some of the features. ***** The stand-alone workshop has two garage doors, cement floor, electricity plus built in cabinetry, original wood beams and cinder block construction. There is also an oversized two car detached garage. ***** The spring house is a lovely feature on the property with a mini bridge to cross the stream. The ponds are up to 20 feet deep and are home to koi, largemouth bass, bluegills, countless turtles and water birds who nest on the small island. ***** Other features include an attic fan, metal roof, ceiling fans, large Catoctin Mountain spring, and lots of land to farm, to use as a nursery or to just watch the wildlife. On a well and private septic. ***** Great location, right off of Route 15 and just 15 minutes to downtown Frederick, multiple shopping centers and Fort Detrick, plus a short drive to Catoctin Mountain Park and Cunningham Falls State Park. School assignments to Lewistown ES, Thurmont MS and Catoctin HS. Zoning is agricultural. Property is eligible for USDA zero down financing.
