Gorgeous Historic Drayton Manor Farm

16110 Drayton Farm Dr, Spencerville, MD 20868
$1,250,000

Description

Gorgeous Historic Drayton Manor Farm centered around a Handsome Colonial Home with 7 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and over 5000 square feet of living space situated on the pristine grounds full of 100 year old English heritage boxwoods and box garden specimen trees.  The stately manor home’s front portico entrance draws your eye as you enter from the meandering cherry tree lined driveway. The classic portico is fronted by grand white columns rising up two stories from a herringbone patterned brick floor to decorative dentil molding.

The front entrance leads into a comfortable foyer with original Chestnut wide plank floors that continue through the main level.  The main floor offers a formal living room with original fireplace, a casual family room with wood stove, once utilized as the Spencerville Post Office, and private dining room all of which boast intricate custom Chestnut molding, cabinets, shelves, and mantels.  The formal kitchen with cherry cabinets, granite counter tops, and heated porcelain tile floors connects to a breakfast room with intricate hand-pieced trim covering the tall tray ceiling.  A comfortable screened-in porch and patio allow for a secondary entrance from the sizable main parking area.  A hand carved chestnut stair railing flanked by beautiful wainscoting leads to the second level which has five bedrooms including the primary bedroom with en suite bathroom, a full-sized laundry room, a walk-in cedar closet, two full sized hall bathrooms, and a large redwood plank balcony overlooking the tranquil grounds. Originally the attic, the third level is fully finished with wood beams highlighting the vaulted ceiling of the spacious great room and accented by the exposed brick of the fireplace chimneys at either end.  Two bedrooms, a wet bar area, and a full bath complete the third floor, made more spacious by dormer windows.

The historic manor home was constructed in 1835 from an original small log house by Caleb Stabler; a prominent man of many hats including farmer, businessman, postmaster, and the first President of Sandy Spring Bank.  The home’s history is abundant as one of the preeminent working farms of the area, an accomplished thoroughbred horse farm, and the scene for lavish parties attended by multiple Maryland governors and other community leaders over the years.  The home was constructed in several phases beginning with an original log cabin in 1811, the first remodel in 1835, a footprint expansion in 1939, and living space addition and restoration in 2000.  The estate includes an adorable tenant house with hardwood floors and a full sized kitchen, a well maintained Gunite pool next to a screened-in pool house named the Summer House with two full bathrooms, as well as a standalone lodge named the Doghouse finished with barn wood from the property which boasts a stone front fireplace, a full sized wet bar, and a full bath and includes an anteroom for home office or gym use.  Other features include an original well house and smoke house, a service entrance to the second floor, a recently purchased German designed Buderus boiler, and much more.

A professional grade polyvinyl fence encompassing the eight plus acre blue grass pasture with a run-in shed is also available for those looking for a small equestrian setup, agricultural estate, or increased privacy.   A unique grandfather clause allows for agricultural based businesses on the property including landscaping.  The Drayton Farm Historic Estate has been carefully cared for and serves as a wonderful reminder of our past while allowing for all of the conveniences of modern living.  Schedule a private tour today.
