Description

If you are looking for your own stone house revival, this could be the house for you! Not on the Historic Register, but could easily be placed on it. The tax records state it was built in 1850, but the architectural style says late1700s, so we did some research. 1850 is when Frederick County, MD began keeping tax records, so all houses built prior to this were recorded as 1850. One of our neighbors up the mountain owns the home of the Garrett family, who built our house, and his records, which include George Washington+GGs survey of the land in 1750, show our house was built for the Garrett+GGs daughter and her husband in appx. 1770.The house +GG It is a non-conforming 3 bedroom, 2 full bath home. It has the original heart-of-pine floors on the first, second and attic floors. The floor in the cellar was removed decades ago and there is a dirt floor there, but the original kitchen fireplace and hearth is still there. The original fireplace is still in the living room, but was converted to gas many years ago. We say non-conforming, because the house does not have its original floor plan. At some point in the past, the spiral staircase that went from the cellar kitchen all the way to the floored attic was partially removed and relocated to a standard staircase in the middle of the house. So the upstairs open area, was likely a parlor, but we used it as the master bedroom. There is a 2nd bedroom upstairs and a 3rd bedroom on the main floor in the addition with the large family room, laundry and full bathroom. We have been told by neighbors and historians that our house sat empty for about 50 years during the early 20th century and had been used by hobos hopping off the train tracks nearby. There are burn marks in parts of the original floor that look like they could have come from this type of use. The home was purchased by the Campbell family in 1974 after sitting empty, and they did most of the renovations then. They added the front porch at that time. In 1993, the addition on the north side was added on by the next owners, which turned an exterior wall into 2 interior walls, giving each of the rooms a very unique stone accent wall and that+GGs why there is a window from the kitchen into the family room, which comes in very handy as an +G+order up+G- window for those nights to have dinner in front of the TV!Outside +GG heavily landscaped by previous owners who had been there for 30 years, we moved in May 2008 to 13 varieties of bearded irises in bloom and we lovingly maintained the grounds over the years we lived there, adding a 17-bed raised garden with pea gravel aisles and an asparagus bed that is now 6 years old, and composting barrels that stay with the house. Next to the hand dug fire pit is also a large in-ground fish pond with goldfish and small carp still there with a beautiful blue and pink blooming water lily. The stone foundation remains in the front yard, including the cornerstone, is of the very first A.M.E. Church in Maryland where we planted a berry patch inside and a grapevine covers the archway entrance. The outside is landscaped with peonies, iris, roses and rhododendron. We even found unused civil war bullets in the yard as we dug our garden! The C&O Canal National Park is right across the street running alongside the Potomac River, and you can hear the rapids of Weverton Falls from the front porch. During the winter, when the leaves are off the trees, you can see the sun glistening on the water.Own a piece of history! Schedule your appointment to see it today.
