Looking for a low density, open land, bucolic setting? Looking for Grandeur and Historical Correctness? My friend you have found it! Welcome to Liberty Hall...a Maryland Historic Property! Built by the Sulivane Family in 1790, this architectural gem is located in the East New Market Federal Historic District. In fact, the entire town has been designated as an historic district! Liberty Hall is beautifully sited on 1.72 acres and boasts 18th century brickwork known as American Common Bond. The house is distinctive and unusual in that the placement of the entrance is at the gable end of the house facing Main Street. Additionally, the kitchen wing is placed on the same axis as the Main House so as to form a varied composition. Unlike most houses of this era, Liberty Hall has never been "remuddled". It retains the original layout in addition to including the flooring, the 18th century 3 story-stringer staircase, interior first-floor shutters and federal wainscoting. Liberty Hall...later called The Edmondson House... is extremely impressive as it boasts a large well-proportioned Ballroom to the left of the principal entrance. The long windows in the Ballroom extend almost to the floor. The Ballroom fireplace is graced by a particularly delicate mantle with a tray molding. Behind the Ballroom is a side entrance to the yard as well as to the utility room and powder room. To the right of the Ballroom is a beautiful first floor en-suite entered from the main hallway. Next is a lovely dining area which connects the main house to what was originally the "out kitchen" which is totally intact, having never been damaged by fire. The enormous fireplace is the focal point of the absolutely charming out kitchen. The kitchen added in the 1920's sits behind the original out kitchen and has been completely renovated. On the Second floor there are three generously proportioned bedrooms and a full bath. During the restoration of one of the second floor bedrooms 30 signatures were revealed dating from 1806 - 1832. These historically-significant signatures have been retained and are protected by plexiglas coverings. The third floor features a very large unfinished loft with dramatic views of the surrounding fields. The property has a beautiful back patio off the kitchen, a circular drive and a charmingly-restored barn .
