Historic Home in need of restoration. Edmondson House Built in 1799 (Also known as Liberty Hall the James B. Sulivane House, the Sulivane-Edmondson House. ) The Edmondson House is one of the most unusual as well as most impressive houses in East New Market. The house stands on the east side of South Main Street (MD Rt. 16) in the center of East New Market, Dorchester County, Maryland. The two-story, four-bay brick house faces west with the gable oriented on an east/west axis. Attached to the main block is a single-story hyphen that connects the service wing. The house rests on a raised five-course common bond brick foundation with an excavated cellar. The brick walls of the house have been stuccoed on the north and east sides. A one-brick thick brick veneer has been added to the west front. The south facade is the only original common bond brick wall to survive exposed. The steeply pitched roof is covered with asphalt shingles.

    Ah, they actually finally cleared the huge bushes and trees from around the house so you can finally see it! This house looks like it has a lot of potential, although not sure that night shot if helping though, lol. East New Market is very small, but there are a couple other interesting houses there as well. Including the Friendship Hall, just to the backside of this house, that we considered a few years back.


    There is another nice old house with a lot of potential right across and down the street from this house as well.

      The night shot reminds me of a beginning scene from “The Dead Files”.
      I think they could have made it a little more ‘homey’ because it’s an incredible house.
      Also like the prayer flags over the back door-good karma maybe?

    This house is pretty much a blank slate; There don’t seem to be a ton of unsympathetic modifications. The front elevation is a nice compliment and contrast to the homes MW shared above. I wish I could read that old graffiti!

  3. Love that giant fireplace!

    I like this old brick house! This staircase placement is uncommon and was probably a later addition, isn’t it? Inside we can see a brick wall, they look like they were glazed?!
