Introducing Childs’ Return. The current owners named their property after they “returned” to the former family farm 120 years after being sold to the family they bought it back from. This stunning property comes with nearly 22 acres across 3 separate lots. Imagine coming home to this amazingly peaceful setting, allowing the world to fade. Getting swept away in its serenity only takes a moment's breath. The 1925 farmhouse has been immaculately kept and boasts both incredible historic charm with all of today's modern luxuries. The current owners built an addition that includes a gourmet kitchen, which is open to the added family room overlooking the farm. In winter months, enjoy a cozy fire by the wood burning fireplace. The addition also includes a main level, large primary suite, with gas fireplace and a spa-like bathroom. You also get to enjoy your very own sauna that will convey with the home. The extensive hardscaping provides the perfect place to relax with morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening, as you look out over your magnificent pastoral views. While you enjoy those views, you will get to watch the deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, fox and so much more!
Whether you want to keep this wonderful home and property all for yourself or run a small farm, the large, old tobacco barn is in excellent condition with some amazing architecture. These barns were restored by the current owners, as were all the additional outbuildings that can be used for shops, storage, garage space and more. It also makes a tremendous horse property. The possibilities are endless!
The list of upgrades is long. The roof is brand new and comes with a 50-year warranty that will transfer one time to the new owner of the property. The impeccably maintained, tree-lined gravel driveway provides a welcoming entrance to family, friends and visitors. When the home was renovated by the current owners in 1994, it was completely re-wired to bring it into modern standards. The septic and well were replaced during that same time and a new boiler was also installed. The boiler provides for 4-zone hot water baseboard heat, as well as hot water. There is also 2-zone central A/C. There is a newer dishwasher and refrigerator. Three new exhaust fans were installed in the attic, when the new roof was installed. There is even TV hook-up in the basement. Newer oil and propane tanks exist too. There is a reverse osmosis filter system in the kitchen that also feeds the ice maker. Let's not forget about the invisible fence that will stay in place for your furry family members, as well as a charming dog “cottage” that will accommodate two (or more) four-legged friends.
This Friendship farm also provides easy and quick access to both Washington, DC and Annapolis. Shopping, dining and several marinas are only minutes away. If you are looking for the perfect place to escape, look no more. Welcome Home.
