Description

Welcome to historic Rock Spring, built in 1790-1810 with formal gardens and fields nestled in the countryside outside of Shepherdstown, WV. The extraordinary formal garden provides the backdrop for garden parties in the shade of the ancient oaks or relaxing quiet time with a book by the seasonal pond. Have horses? The 10-acre field is currently in hay but could be easily fenced. ROCK SPRING is a two-story brick house with metal standing seam roof, that is currently configured as a three-bedroom home. The main entry is a brick path between massive boxwood bushes to a gabled entry porch. Through the 6-paneled door with original hardware is the central hall, with hand-carved banister to second floor and attic. Original, random-width flooring runs throughout the main house. You will be immediately drawn into this comfortably-sized home with impressive details like the original hardware, chair rail, and picture rail. The expansive formal dining room is opposite the front door, with a formal living room and kitchen to the left, and den/library to the right. Through the den is a sunporch overlooking the formal garden, and full-bath with modern laundry. Each primary room on the main level has a fireplace with original firebox and hand-hewn mantel. The most notable of these mantels, according to historians, is in the den- it has reeded pilasters, a tall frieze panel and central rectagonal tablet with reeding. This mantel’s sides wrap around the chimney wall, which is unique. The random width wood floors continue on the second level with a common receiving area, two good-sized bedrooms and an additional gabled bedroom that was once divided into two bedrooms (but is now just one room). Several of the outbuildings also contribute to the property- a large garden shed, a cement-floored barn, and stone springhouse. Rock Spring is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Not pictured are the four rooms in the English basement (with two exterior doors), which can be customized for a guest suite or even an Airbnb rental.
