PRICE REDUCED!!!! Idyllically situated on over 33 acres, this National Folk farmhouse has over 3800 SqFt of finished space, was built in 1793, and expanded with an addition in 1980. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 updated baths, 3 working fireplaces, updated kitchen, basement with family room and kitchenette, a deck, and a wrap-around porch. This property has enough space to really connect with a rural lifestyle, whether you like farming, owning or boarding horses, or just having a large green space to enjoy. But, don't be intimidated by all the land. Currently, a good portion of the property is leased and farmed by a local farmer on a year-to-year basis (which is built- in income, and pays for about half of the taxes) that could be continued or terminated, depending on the intended use of the property.
Within the 33 acres, the house sits about 50 yards in from Houcksville road. When you enter the east facing front doors, you’ll find a formal living room and dining room, and you will immediately notice the gorgeous, newly refinished oak floors, covering the entire expanse of the main level. A side entrance leads to a foyer and a walkthrough closet where you can shrug off coats or remove messy boots. Beyond the walkthrough, a hallway leads to a rustic barn door that slides open to reveal a newly refinished full bath. The main living area is a testament to open concept living with an expansive family room, featuring built-in bookcases and a wood fireplace. This room is open to a large kitchen with hickory cabinets, stainless appliances, Silestone counters, and a large 6.5 x 6.5 ft island. Stairs lead to the second level which features 4 bedrooms with plenty of closet space including a master with a walk-in, and a cozy fireplace. Eclectic style creates the perfect blend of rustic and modern with a newly refinished full bath, featuring a custom built vanity made from reclaimed chestnut, a marble shower, and vintage claw foot tub. Permanent stairs lead to an unfinished attic, currently used for storage, but could easily be transformed into living space. The full walkout basement could be used as an in-law suite with a large cedar walled family room, a working fireplace, and a slate tile floor. Hose off the dogs in the walkout area which could be used as a pet friendly mudroom or dog wash station. The basement kitchenette has new cabinets, counters, a refrigerator, freezer, and a full bath. A laundry room holds a brand new LG top load washer and a dryer. Stretching across 2 sides of the homes exterior you can experience the full southern charm of the wraparound porch, or watch sunsets off of the back deck with views of the fire pit, barn, and mature trees that shade the long driveway with room for 4 cars.
Convenient to downtown Hampstead, shopping, restaurants, and nearby outdoor recreational activities, this is a fine example of clean country living in Carroll County Maryland!
