  • $1,250,000


To truly experience this extraordinary property, it should be seen first hand – it is so easy to show! Steeped in history, the restoration and renovation of this idyllic mid-nineteenth century Maryland farm has been lovingly maintained with intimate care given to represent the exciting past of this incredible property. In fact, the State and County provide incentives to maintain this fantastic house. From the moment you arrive at The John Hanson Gassaway House, you are transported. Truly no detail has been spared, and the property can even be purchased fully furnished. The home features a spacious design with a simply beautiful center entertaining and sitting area. This home remains true to its original history while incorporating modern luxuries. The home includes multiple fireplaces throughout, a renovated attic space, an elegant outdoor porch, and a gourmet kitchen complete with quartz countertops, Rohl polished nickel faucets, a Shaw’s fireclay sink, induction cooktop, and a Vermont Castings gas stove in the kitchen’s eat-in area. The gracious three bedrooms and four bathrooms have all been restored and renovated, and storage is not lacking throughout the home or the extensive grounds. The home is situated on 7 acres of beautiful Maryland farmland that include dramatic wide-open views, an incredible 8 bay 2-level heated and cooled garage, fully restored historic outbuildings and a peaceful koi pond with a gentle rolling waterfall. And while you feel as though you are a million miles away, in reality, you are only a ten-minute drive to the SoccerPlex, as well as dining and shopping. Truly, a one of a kind, home in absolutely pristine condition that could easily have a future as a bed & breakfast, wedding venue, leisure farm or stable, AirBnB and a country retreat, or for a classic car collection and showcase.
