Description

This gorgeous farmhouse, situated on 7 sprawling acres, is the very definition of what a home is. Open spaces for gathering, a welcoming country gourmet kitchen and dining space, generous bedrooms, and a picturesque yard made for relaxing and entertaining. From the moment you arrive, you feel as though you are home. The house features a spacious design with an open and airy center family room and entertaining area. And while this home remains true to its original history, it seamlessly incorporates every modern luxury, including multiple working gas fireplaces throughout, two renovated attic spaces, an elegant covered double porch off of the owner’s bedroom and family room as well as a full length entertaining porch off of the dining and living rooms, and a gourmet kitchen complete with quartz countertops, Rohl polished nickel faucets, a Shaw's fireclay sink, induction cooktop, and a Vermont Castings gas stove in the kitchen’s eat-in area. And the home’s airy three bedrooms and four bathrooms provide every comfort. Even better, you will not lack storage throughout the home or the extensive grounds. And speaking of those grounds, on the 7 acres of beautiful Maryland farmland there is an incredible 8 bay 2-level heated and cooled garage, which could easily be modified for horses, storage, or as a work shed. There is also a peaceful pond with a gentle rolling waterfall which makes it the perfect spot to enjoy a book on crisp fall evenings. And while you feel as though you are a million miles away from the bustle of the city, in reality, you are only a seven-minute drive to grocery, dining, and retail shops as well as the SoccerPlex. To see for yourself, reach out to Meredith Margolis and Molly Peter for a private showing and for additional information about this beautiful country home! **This property is on the Montgomery county Master Plan for Historic Preservation**

People are not respectful of following the rules from the HOA. Trash blows into the end units back yard and people leave their trash and old household items all over. Overall a great street but I am too picky and these things alone I would not live here."
