    Here’s hoping a patch of land with the home could be negotiable. I’m certain this is a touch older than 1850 based on the interior details.

      I would date this house to the late 18th century. If you compare this Georgian house to another Mid-Atlantic state example, The Vroom House in Hillsborough, New Jersey, built in the 1770’s for a retired sheriff whose son would later become Governor and add the two 19th century wings, you get a good approximation of what this Maryland house would look like had it been constructed of brick rather than timber. Both houses have virtually identically proportioned foyers and staircases.

    Hey I’m up for any property where BLT’s are negotiable! I’ll have one on sourdough at 1 pm every day please, plenty of mayo.
    Seriously though, this looks like one of those houses that are slowly sinking into the ground. I certainly hope that it’s restored and not removed, as the realtor suggests.

    Did the realtor really just suggest tearing this down?!

      To be fair, non old house lovers would look at this and suggest that. Maybe it’s way worse than we see even. Folks like us will go to great lengths to save history even if others say it’s impossible. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Montgomery County is right next to DC so sadly this is all about putting a neighborhood of McMansions on the 105 acres and not about the farmhouse…:(

    So sad when the realtor mentioned the word developer. Unfortunately, this beautiful place will probably another tear-down victim with multiple homes going up๐Ÿ˜ข

      Exactly! “Developer” and “remove” rarely bode well!
      One sees this very frequently in Southern Ontario, Canada, in what’s known as the “Golden Horseshoe,” between Toronto and St. Catherines (not a typo). Lovely “heritage” homes, built prior to Confederation, set amongst acres of fellow farmland eagerly bought up by developers who have no interest in the house. It’s a tragedy really how Canada’s history is being obliterated!
      (Look up “abandoned Ontario” sites including
      to see all of them, while they’re still there!)

        Amy Bee I will look at that website. Very sad indeed! Many of the historic homes in my area of the south (USA) are destroyed this way. So so sad ๐Ÿ˜ž

    The stairwayโ€™s rail is so simple, and so graceful.

    I really like the wall paper along the stairs. Beautiful views.
