Stately Williamsburg reproduction in a beautiful and private setting on 34.8 acres in Monkton. Park-like grounds with lawns, specimen trees, shrubbery, and perennials, all professionally designed and maintained. The secluded setting backs to 30 acres of your own mature woodlands bordered by the Gunpowder River. Trails meander through the woodlands to the river for swimming, fishing, kayaking, and simply enjoying the spectacular natural setting. The home features four finished levels, all finely crafted with great attention to detail, creating the perfect blend of 21st-century amenities and the look and feel of an historic manor house. The formal living and dining rooms boast intricate moldings, random-width quarter-sawn oak flooring, 9' ceilings, and custom lighting. Picture holiday meals in the gracious dining room, with the lights dimmed and the fire lit! A spacious foyer and center hall with elegant staircase and marble tile flooring join the formal wing to the more casual kitchen and family room. The custom-designed gourmet kitchen has recently updated top-of-the-line stainless appliances, a large island with seating, and adjoining breakfast room with French door to the screened porch. Foodies will love the huge walk-in pantry with floor-to-ceiling custom shelving, the abundance of counter and cabinet space, and thoughtful layout. Enjoy relaxing together or entertaining friends and family in the family room with its rustic Rumford fireplace, handmade wood-paneled walls, honey pine flooring, and built-in Gramophone entertainment system. The well designed mudroom and laundry rounds out the first floor with built-in cubbies for coats, boots, hats, and dog leashes plus a laundry sink and access to the oversized two car garage. On the second floor, the gracious master suite features a cozy wood-burning fireplace, dormer windows, large garden bath, and lots of closet space. Two additional bedrooms on the second level, both with double closets, share the large hall bath. One is used as an office and includes built-in desk and shelving. The other has access to a large storage area with a separate cedar closet. Turned stairs take you to the third floor suite, perfect for guests or au-pair. It includes a large bedroom with ample closet and an updated ensuite bath, plus a second room with built-in desk and shelving and access to a large knee-wall storage space. The fully finished walk-out lower level is perfect for all kinds of entertainment and fun. Enjoy the warmth of the gas cast-iron stove in winter, and open the French doors to the patios in warmer weather. There's also another full bath and a spacious utility and storage room, plus a separate cold storage area, previously used for wine. Outdoor living spaces include multiple brick patios. A two-story outbuilding has plenty of space for your vehicles and toys, plus a walk-up second floor for extra storage or finishing in the future. There's also a separate wood storage area and rack for your canoe or kayak. Truly a one-of-a kind property, with a unique setting and fantastic location only five minutes to I-83 for commuting north or south. And Hereford School District too!
