This fabulous log home was originally built in 1835, as is depicted by the date carved on the exterior of the stately stone fireplace. The charm and historic attributes to this property are truly noteworthy. The home is presented here with 5 acres but there are two additional congruent and subdivided lots that can be sold as well for very reasonable prices, should a buyer want the entire 16.57 acres with the home. One parcel is 6.57 acres and the other is a 5 acre parcel. The original log home was lovingly restored and added on to in 1979 and again, substantially so, by the current family from 1995- to present. Most recent improvements include a large sunroom/ family room with tile flooring and high end windows allowing light to fill the room with a sunny glow as well as a main floor bedroom and full bath, with walk in shower. A large upstairs addition was also added, including extra bedrooms, play room/craft room, office, storage closets, and additional attic storage. The new standing seam metal roof and snowbirds were added only 10 years ago and the exterior wood was treated in 2015. The kitchen was completely redone with stunning granite countertops and the restoration of the original cabinetry that now shines with pride. Two new HVAC's were just installed on 5/12/ 2021and a new cook top is on the way.
Exteriorly, and down a fabulous sledding hill, is the strong and ever flowing creek - Turkey Run. This creek meanders through the side yard of the 5 acres plat and crosses the road to meet the larger Opequon Creek waterway in Frederick County. The extensive hardscape around the home includes, a stone patio, stone walkways and stone steps. There are numerous sheds for storage, a barn with parking for 2-3 vehicles, work shops and storage. There is also a former kennel in the barn. The John Deer Tractor will CONVEY! And, if this is not enough, the front yard is a perfect place to work on your golf swing! Oh, Did I mention a Hot Tub? Privacy, history, updates, additions and convenience make this a fantastic place for you and your family. There is also the potential for additional acreage.
The home is perfect for great gatherings and entertaining.
