Privacy abounds with 360-degree views of trees, fields and rolling hills from the main farmhouse - not another building in sight! Boasting 134+ acres of farmland and woods with the main farmhouse in the middle of the land. The property, called Glenstrae Farm (a Scottish estate name meaning a valley with a stream running through it), is one of the highest points in AA county! Currently, about 70+ acres have been cultivated annually, in addition to woodlands, bringing a significant property tax reduction. Many nearby properties have enrolled in the Anne Arundel County Agricultural Preserve program, permanently conserving the rural nature of the farming neighborhood.
The main house is in a Classic Federal style with much of the original architectural detail. It is typical of Southern Maryland at the time with a transverse entrance hall and front stairway. The house has a double-parlor design and large windows and four working and nonworking fireplaces. The main house was constructed in the 1830s. The ca1825, rear portion has a small back stairway; the lower floor now houses the kitchen. The house is midway through renovation, so bring your own ideas to complete the project.
There are other buildings on the property. Near the main house is a barn that has served as a woodworking shop. Previously it was used as a stable with a long room for tack and feed. A small cottage on the edge of the farm is in need of extensive renovation. There is a small 19th-century family cemetery. A spring-fed stream, Fish Run (Davidsonville Branch), runs along the back property line. With rolling hills and beautiful mature trees, this property would make an excellent equestrian facility, farm, family compound, etc. Truly a tranquil and exquisite property.
