SOLD – Happy Seller Says:
“Thank you so much for your dedication and effort throughout this process. You did such an amazing job, carrying us through every hiccup and hangup that the buyers bank threw into the process. Your advice during the listing process was pivotal in getting the house ready to market. The quality of people you brought with you, from staging to the photographer and videographer, had a hugely positive impact in the way the house was presented to potential buyers. Most importantly, your insight during contract negotiations and closing gave us confidence in our decision and the peace of mind that we had an expert on our side.
We will absolutely recommend you to everyone we know and would love to do business with you again in the future.”
Historic Croom Farm c.1932
This extraordinary American Four Square sits comfortably in a private 40 acre setting just outside of Washington, DC. The beautiful home is a wonderful blend of historic detailing and modern amenities, with original cut glass door knobs, wood floors and moldings, as well as, a spacious main level master suite addition with bay windows and luxurious master bathroom, and an another addition that features an expansive 23′ x 20′ gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, gas range, under-floor radiant heat and vaulted ceiling.
Originally a tobacco farm, 2 large tobacco barns and a livestock barn/stable remain, along with several vintage outbuildings. There are cleared hiking/horse riding paths that wind through the wooded acreage and along the charming creek that gently navigates its way across this property. Set far back from the road, this enchanting setting features a delightful back yard with an inviting in-ground pool, and pastoral views of rolling fields and woods, one can easily be transported to another time and another era. With a full complement of wild life, birds and nature trails, this is a rare retreat from the fast paced world, yet Croom Farm is within commuting distance to DC and Annapolis.
This property qualifies for and is enrolled in the Maryland Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP). This program (CREP Brochure) provides for annual rent payable to the landowner in exchange for the conservation of 11 acres of land and includes reduced taxes based on the property’s agricultural tax status. Great program and wonderful opportunity for a rural land owner.
