Property Description

PROPERTY IS OCCUPIED...DO NOT COME IN THE DRIVEWAY WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT. Georgian Hill is a beloved country estate owned by the same family for six decades. A rare opportunity to purchase a one-of-a-kind 5,500 s.f. historic stone home on 19.8 acres in a unique private setting. The house has grand scale but still offers a comfortable and welcoming quality that hearkens back to by-gone days. Room sizes are generous throughout and the house has a nice flow and floorplan. Four heat pump units provide both heat and air conditioning to the entire house, updated electrical service, high yield well with updated well equipment, and for a house of this vintage it's in overall good condition. Terrific original details abound including doors, hardware, flooring, 15-inch deep window sills, and a restored walk-in fireplace with original cooking hardware and baking nooks. The 20th century addition houses the eat-in country kitchen that was updated in 2010. Other recent updates include a BRAND NEW ARCHITECTURAL ROOF and extensive tree work. ALTHOUGH THE HOUSE IS IN GOOD LIVABLE CONDITION, BUYERS NEED TO BE AWARE THAT BATHS NEED UPDATING, WINDOWS WILL NEED EXTERIOR MAINTENANCE AND/OR UPGRADING, AND INTERIOR FINISHES ARE READY TO BE UPDATED TO BUYERS TASTES AND PREFERENCES. SELLERS ARE LOOKING FOR A BUYER WHO APPRECIATES THE VALUE OF THIS ONE-OF-A-KIND HOUSE AND SETTING AND WHO ALSO UNDERSTANDS THE PROCESS AND COSTS OF MAKING DESIRED IMPROVEMENTS OF THEIR OWN. Surrounded by Liberty Reservoir and Maryland State parklands, this historic home dates back to the late 1700s with an 1835 addition and offers a unique opportunity to live in a piece of Maryland history still in a private and secluded setting. Extensive lawns, a circular paved driveway, specimen shade trees, shrubs, and perennial gardens, plus stone walkways, walls, and patio. Includes in-ground saltwater pool that was redone in 2010, charming stone stable, and stone garden shed. There's space to create pasture for a few horses or other farm animals and the ability to ride or walk out into expansive parkland for all kinds of recreational activities, including a short hike to Liberty Lake. The woodlands provide seclusion and a great natural setting for birds and wildlife with Chimney Branch meandering through if you're a stream enthusiast. Located in a rural setting, yet close to amenities with quick access to commuting routes to Baltimore and Washington D.C.
