Description

Historic Gaither-Hobbs-Musgrove House c.1780 is conveniently located in the charming community of Sunshine, outside of the Brookeville Historic District and just minutes from downtown DC and Baltimore.

A gorgeous restoration with no expense spared, this stunning 4BR & 3BA historic farmhouse on 2.5 acres in rural Montgomery County Maryland features beautiful original wood floors & exposed wood beam ceilings, a stone fireplace and a massive stone hearth, a spacious gourmet kitchen with center island and stainless steel appliances, a main level in-law/aux pair suite, and an enormous amount of character & charm. The private setting includes mature landscaping, plantings and peaceful views of farmland from the roomy front porch and expansive deck.

The house was owned by multiple generations of one extended family from 1780 to the mid 1930’s. Since then there have been four families, including the present owners, caring for this distinguished structure.

These stewards have lovingly preserved the historic detailing giving the house a true period feel, but with the modern amenities that we have come to expect, like luxurious bathrooms, spacious bedrooms, updated plumbing and electrical, zoned central air conditioning & heating, low-maintenance vinyl siding, insulated windows, and so much more. The present owners have spent their tenure maintaining this noble structure for the ages and the next steward can enjoy the benefits of their passion for historic preservation.

With over 2 1/2 secluded acres, far from the road and down a long driveway, this is a gardener’s paradise ideal for someone with a love for plants and gardening. There are multiple garden plots ready for the next steward’s personal touch and preferences, and though the property is no longer a working farm, there remains a vintage barn & chicken coop waiting to be put to some delightful use.

First time offered for sale in nearly 40 years, the Historic Gaither-Hobbs-Musgrove House  presents a unique opportunity to own a piece of Maryland history nestled in rural Montgomery County.

A dream 18th & 19th century farm house with all the modern amenities in a rural setting, the Historic Gaither-Hobbs-Musgrove House is a home of rare and beautiful distinction, close to DC & Baltimore, yet a world away.
