Hidden away in Clarksville, MD, this extraordinary 135-acre property is listed in The National Register of Historic Places, a significant representation over 300 years of the agricultural heritage and architectural evolution of the area. The oldest portion of the manor house dates from the 18th century, including a log cabin believed to have been attached to the central section of the house in the 1700Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s. A 2-story expansion in 1846 added the main level parlor and upper-level bedrooms. In 1919, noted architect Bayard Turnbull was engaged to renovate and enlarge the property, resulting in a large 2-story T-shaped addition on the back with multiple rooms and baths. Another comprehensive renovation was undertaken in 2005 including period-accurate restoration along with the addition of a modern kitchen and central heat and air conditioning. With nearly 6700 square feet, the manor house offers 6 bedrooms and 5 baths, and a unique, versatile floor plan offering myriad options for utilizing the interesting collection of rooms and spaces. The sweeping, wrap-around mahogany porch sports 22 Doric columns and provides a peaceful, pastoral view of open fields and woods.
