Historic William W. Duley House c.1809

8100 Croom Rd, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772, USA
$624,000

Description

Considered one of the most important historic estates in Prince George’s County Maryland, the William W. Duley House (c.1809) has been beautifully restored and renovated. Featuring a private setting with historic outbuildings and barns, fenced pastures and just minutes from
downtown DC, this significant historic 3.4 acre farmette offers a unique buying opportunity for the Washington metro area. A wonderful blend of fine historic detailing and modern amenities, including central air conditioning, a gourmet kitchen with hand selected premium granite counters & back splash, solar panels, original wood floors & moldings and an enormous amount of charm, this gorgeous property is steeped in the rich history of Prince George’s County. Some of the County’s great 18th & 19th century PG County founding families – the Beanes, Claggetts, Sasscers & Scotts–resided in this house and worked the surrounding lands, once part of the 17th century Croome plantation granted by Maryland’s colonial proprietors.

The original 1809 section was built by Judson Scott in a rural Tidewater style. Scott used a 15th century English technique of heavy timber frame construction filled with brick nogging, that can be viewed in the exposed walls of the back staircase. Timber & nogging construction is typical of East Anglia, but rarely found in colonial America. Scott acquired the 259 acre farmstead through marriage to a granddaughter of Thomas Claggett, the first American-born bishop of the Episcopal Church, then owner of the Croome estate. Scott also operated a nearby grist and sawmill, and died in 1822. After several owners during the antebellum years, William W. Duley purchased the farmstead at public auction in 1873 and constructed the large Federal-style addition. Though the acreage is reduced from its 19th century expanse, the William W. Duley House offers a prospective steward the experience of being a part of the continuum of more than two centuries of American history.

The property is located on both the Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Route and the Maryland Lower Patuxent Scenic Byway, and is the beneficiary of a scenic easement in the adjacent woodlands.   Thousands of acres of parkland with riding trails, fishing piers and boat ramps are five minutes away in Jug Bay Park and Rosaryville State Park.  This still-rural location is just is 19 miles by road from Capitol Hill (40 minutes) and 15 miles (20 minutes) from the Chesapeake bay marinas in Deale.

This is an historic property of rare and beautiful distinction, minutes from the excitement of the nation’s capital, yet a world away.
