NEW PRICE! WELCOME HOME TO WOBURN MANOR! Step back in time to a period when manners and elegance permeated society and stately homes dotted the pastoral landscape of Washington county. Built between the years of 1818-1820, Woburn Manor is the embodiment of history and character. Once a 1400 acre working estate spanning to the Potomac river in historic Sharpsburg, MD, the property was amassed thru land grant & purchase by prominent Washington county jurist Thomas Buchanan. As was the norm of the day, each grey stone in this 50+ foot tall, 6,000 square foot creation is sourced from the land, as are much of the original hardwood used for window sashes, flooring and details. A tree-lined stone walled lane will take you up to the circular driveway on the now 12 ac farmette. The manor house was built atop a man made rise to reflect the prominence of it's owner...the stone covered in stucco as was the standard of grand homes at the time. The lovely front porch , with hand crafted curved banisters, allows for spectacular viewings of the western sunsets over the river. Note the beautiful fan light and side lights which provide a sunny glow. As you enter the home into the front hall, one immediately notices the lovely arch, hand made plaster medallion, 12 foot ceilings & original 200 year old yellow pine floors; the latter which are a feature of the entire home. The home is federal style thus with a symmetrical floorplan on each level. The door to your left opens to the cozy front parlor/study. With one of the homes 8 fireplaces (4 working) and a large custom made book shelf, it is the perfect room to get away for some private me time or contemplation. Directly to the south from the hall are the grand parlor/living room & dining room. The distinctive feature of the living rm is the jib door which leads to a small rear porch overlooking the formal garden. Large original doors separate the living and dining room spaces; each with their own gas fireplaces. Added at the turn of the 20th century, a dumb waiter connects the DR w/ the kitchen below (note the old servant's bell near the floor). To the right from the center entry hall is a side hall. A beautiful 3 story staircase prominently occupies this space. Adjacent is the butler's pantry & half bath. A door leads downstairs to the more relaxed "heart" of the family home. This level features newer recycled pine floors with radiant heat. The large lower level main hall provides one with many options for use. Off this hall are the roomy family room & kitchen. Note the depth of he windows...the craftsmanship and longevity of Woburn can best be seen by the 2+ feet of stone wall that support the structure. Your attention in the kitchen is immediately drawn to it's architectural centerpiece...the beautiful (recently revealed) stone fireplace. The country kitchen provides ample space, w/cabinetry hewn from trees felled on the property. A powder room, small laundry & storage room round out the spaces on this level. The side door of the "English Basement" opens to the stone walled courtyard w slate patio leading to Summer kitchen & domestic house. Stone steps connect the courtyard to the formal garden at the rear. Retracing our steps upstairs, the upper level (3rd fl) features 3 large BRs, each with fireplace (never used). In the first to the right, the owner created a walk in closet w built ins. The 2nd BR features original closets to Woburn- a rarity for homes of the era. In the 3rd "the Blue Bedroom" a closet was created & access to the first of 2 full bathrooms on this level. The 4th level has 2 more BRs, cedar closet and attic, and a wonderful view down the staircase. *Unique to Woburn are restored historic outbuildings - summer kitchen, spring & domestic houses- the latter a versatile space to enjoy w/friends or perhaps create a cottage/guest house! *FENCED* ELECTRIC TO OUTBUILDINGS* Subdivision potential- CALL COUNTY
