SOLD – Seller Says:
“Gary Gestson assisted us with the sale of our farmette consisting of a 200 year old house and 7 acre property which was very unique. We knew it would not be a quick sale….waiting for the right buyer. Gary was patient and reassuring throughout the process. He was always responsive, returning messages all hours of the day and night. He guided us through the process from staging, to showings, inspections and finally settlement. Gary’s expertise is in older, historical homes which would qualify him to sell a property of any type.”

Uniontown is the gem of Carroll County’s small towns and villages. It contains a variety of elements that make it representative of most early settlements in this region, including its plan which is linear along an important turnpike. Today, the town retains much of its early characteristics including its tree lined streets and historic buildings. The town exhibits a diversity of nineteenth and early twentieth century structures that, in effect, present a lively museum of rural architectural styles and details. All of these features combine to create the quaint atmosphere and charm found in the community.
The unique quality of Uniontown is its physical character that portrays a townscape virtually unchanged from the turn-of-the-20th century. The few buildings that date from the mid-twentieth century are relatively inconspicuous. Moreover, the view from the town towards the adjoining countryside is preserved. A distinct boundary between village and countryside exists without the imposition of suburban subdivisions or strip development.
