The Wilderness c.1799

2 Thistle Rd, Catonsville, MD 21228, USA
$1,100,000

Description

The Wilderness is a superb historic estate that was renovated and greatly expanded in the Victorian era to the gorgeous mansion it is today, with opulent amenities, nestled between Historic Ellicott City & Historic Catonsville on a 2 acre lot in a private wooded setting. Currently a residence and B&B, it is a spacious 3 story home with 2 staircases, 9 bedrooms, 4 kitchens (including a large gourmet kitchen), 6.5 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces with ornate mantels, multiple parlors, a gorgeous formal dining room and a bold wrap around porch with nature views. This is an exquisite Victorian jewel surrounded by mature woods in Patapsco Valley State Park, close to Baltimore & DC, yet a world away.

The Wilderness’ stately exterior with mansard roof is only a hint of the elegance inside. Gorgeous period details like “jib” doors (door/windows) opening to the formal wrap-around porch, pocket doors, a soaring cupula, and luxurious heart pine hardwood floors can be found throughout the home. Embrace the pure splendor of a by gone era in this Victorian estate. Cozy up with a good book by one of the five ornate fireplaces or relax in one of the comfortable sitting rooms. Invite friends and guests to the elegant dining room for a delicious meal prepared in the spacious and well equipped gourmet kitchen and afterward, enjoy cocktails and conversation from your choice of exquisite parlors. A main level bedroom suite with a sitting room can be easily transformed to a den & library, and the two upper levels of the property, include en-suite bedrooms, multiple kitchens & apartments, with access from main & back staircases. If you can dream it, this versatile mansion can realize it. The expansive, wrap around porch and wooded acreage make this stunning property a secluded oasis for entertaining and everyday living.
