Description

Situated on 9.9 sprawling acres and surrounded by majestic old growth trees, this awe-inspiring estate offers a rare blend of privacy, historic elegance, and exquisite craftsmanship of a bygone era. Built in 1790, Fairview was the birthplace and family home of Oden Bowie who served as the 34th governor of Maryland. This 6, 600 square foot Greek Revival manor home boasts soaring 12-foot ceilings throughout, interior masonry walls, pristine long leaf heart pine floors, eight fireplaces surrounded by ornate (and now extinct)King of Prussia marble mantels, original solid wood doors and wavy glass windows, and detailed architectural mill work. Possibilities abound to revive the property as a grand private residence, as well as great potential for commercial applications including a bed and breakfast, private event venue, winery and vineyard, equestrian center, etc. which are all allowed under the current Residential Estate (R-E) zoning designation. The home has undergone significant interior renovations since 2017. No expense was spared, and great care was taken to preserve its original character while modernizing living spaces, mechanical systems, and amenities. Major upgrades include new electrical wiring and panels as well as new plumbing. Two new high efficiency heat pumps deliver heating and cooling to all living spaces via new full-sized duct work that was meticulously installed without the need for unsightly bulkheads that would disrupt the home~s historic fabric. Supplemental heating is provided by two high efficiency gas furnaces. New insulation, coupled with the home~s thick masonry walls, ensure efficient year-round comfort. The crown jewel of the home is an all new dream kitchen that claims a space previously occupied by one of the original sitting rooms. The magazine worthy chef~s paradise features ample storage, massive custom cabinetry, exotic stone counter tops, subway tile feature wall with floating wood shelves, two sinks with champagne bronze touch-activated fixtures, and a huge center island. The original farmhouse style kitchen was completely transformed into a highly functional space featuring new cabinets with striking leathered soapstone counter tops, a large quartz sink, oil rubbed bronze fixtures, subway tile back splash, vintage wood shelves, beautiful porcelain field tile flooring, built-in banquette, and original exposed brick wall and ceiling beam. With two exterior entrances, this flexible space can simultaneously serve as a mud room, casual second eat-in kitchen, craft room, or fully equipped catering kitchen for events. A secondary upstairs bedroom was converted into a luxurious spa inspired master bathroom featuring a large fully tiled glass shower enclosure with electronically controlled steam shower system, rain shower head, vintage inspired chrome fixtures, shagreen-embossed leather vanity, designer porcelain tile flooring, private water closet with pocket door, and original cast iron claw foot soaking tub situated beneath a beautiful crystal chandelier. A new full bath was added off the upstairs hallway with a gorgeous Arabesque glass tile mosaic in the shower, champagne bronze fixtures and a beautiful exposed brick wall. Two bedrooms were fully renovated, one of which includes a new full en suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The other features a dramatic vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, and original wood paneling. A new upstairs laundry with full sized washer and dryer connections was also added just off the master bedroom suite. A full set of professional architectural drawings and permits, along with a complete landscaping plan are available. A large collection of antique reclaimed lumber and materials salvaged during the renovation will convey with a full price offer. Unused building materials (drywall, paint, caulk, fixtures, etc.) are available as well. Please do not contact owners directly. Please do not enter onto the property without first calling your agent or an agent for access
