This historically significant farmhouse was built circa 1787 and was the headquarters for Union soldiers during the Civil War and a hospital after the battle at Antietam. The sprawling 10.4 acre parcel was originally part of a 157 acre tract and was surveyed by George Washington. This home boasts original wood floors, 9-12 ft. ceilings, 10 fireplaces, a frame style blacksmith shop with original bellows, gouge-work detailed mantles and many other original features. Upon entering, you are greeted with a wide hallway and wraparound staircase with incised stair brackets. To your left is the first large bedroom with built-ins, 10 ft ceilings and an en suite bath containing a clawfoot tub/shower combo and walk-in-closet . To the right of the entrance is the moody living room with 10 ft ceilings and retains the original decorative arched tops closets. Crossing through the living room you will find the home office complete with built-in bookshelves and an inoperable fireplace. Next to the office is the laundry/mud room with a vaulted ceiling and skylight. Continuing through the office is the recently remodeled kitchen, which features soapstone countertops and a Monogram 48” dual gas range with electric double oven. The remainder of the downstairs is an addition completed in 2005. This space contains a dining room with large picture window, a cozy breakfast nook with french doors that provide access to a wisteria covered patio and a large family room with 12ft ceilings, a wood burning stove and curved window overlooking the backyard and pool. Upstairs via the front hall staircase, the room on the left is the second large bedroom with en suite bath that mimics the bathroom below. Across the hall is the primary suite with custom walk-in closet that includes ample hanging space, cabinets and open shelving. Through the closet, you will find the recently remodeled primary en suite bath complete with heated floor, clawfoot tub, double vanity, standing shower and back staircase, which leads to the kitchen. Making your way outside, the backyard is a private and welcoming oasis complete with a heated mineral pool and shallow sundeck with aggregate white sand patio. To the right you will see the original blacksmith shop/workshop which retains its original bellows, a 2 car garage and 2 cabins. Behind the two car garage is an open room for storage, a sauna and full bathroom. It would make a great pool house! On the backside of the garage you will find a staircase leading up to the second story. Upon entering, you are greeted with a kitchenette, family room, full bath and bedroom. Perfect for a mother-in-law suite or rental unit. Down in the side yard, you will find 2 log and chinking cabins. Both structures were relocated from a nearby property and have been professionally restored to be preserved for posterity. The one story structure is a restored slave cabin and the two story structure is a restored tollhouse. In front of the cabins along the road is the original well with orange cast iron bridge. This is a wonderful opportunity for history buffs and historic home lovers!
