Great opportunity to own a piece of pastoral history! Registered Maryland Historic Trust. Mountrose, built in 1820, is a classic example of Federal Period architecture. It boasts classic large foundation rooms with tall ceilings. Hardwood floors run throughout the original three floors. Set on five acres with mature hardwoods, it is bordered by woodlands and fields offering panoramic views of birds and wildlife. An excellent location for horses! All within 50 miles of The Capitol, and 10 miles of Dahlgren, Virginia.
The original brick-floor kitchen with hand hewn beams still exists as a den, with its cooking crane anchored in the fireplace. Although originally a separate building, it was eventually connected to the rest of the house, encompassing a more modern kitchen. Montrose features five fireplaces with mantles, including one fitted with gas logs. The fireplaces have not been used for some time. All are "as is". A large enclosed porch at the rear of the house is great for entertaining, and looks out over the rear of the property and adjoining woodland.
Though built over 200 years ago, the house has a state of the art geothermal heat and AC system, making it more efficient in its heating and air than most homes being constructed to today's standards! Storm windows add further energy savings.
This four bedroom, one and a half bath home is also plumbed for a sink in one of the top floor bedrooms. The second floor bath features two vanities and a steam shower. Don't worry about water bills, as pure fresh water is supplied by a deep well.
The property contains a large barn with concrete floors. It has room for a shop, equipment storage and large work area. Bring all your toys!
Two period smokehouses flank the walk from the driveway to the house. A small gazebo completes the look. The western field has a horse or equipment shed, while the eastern field offers room for vegetables or hay field.
This is a must see!
