Description

Wilderness Estate- This quintessential Eastern Shore farm is located along the Choptank River in Trappe, Maryland. Comprised of 47 acres, with original structures that are impeccably well-kept and improved with modern amenities, The Wilderness provides a unique opportunity to enjoy the best of the Eastern Shore. Surrounded by open space and preserved farmland with proximity to Oxford, Easton, Cambridge, and St. Michaels, The Wilderness is sure to please the discerning buyer. Sited among large waterfront estates, The Wilderness enjoys privacy and a commanding presence with old-growth trees, broad southerly views, and deep water. The scope of improvements includes the primary residence, waterside guest cottage, beach house, pool, pier, tennis court, early 20th-century barn, and a host of accessory structures for life on the farm. Visit the virtual tour for an inside look and appreciation for the scope of this offering.The main house has great historical significance not only for the original owners grandson who lived there and served two terms as the Governor of Maryland but also for its place in the development of Marylands domestic architecture, as noted on two markers from the Maryland Bicentennial Commission and the Maryland Historical Society. The smaller and original of the two brick wings dates from the late 18th century and the larger wing from the early 19th century. The houses architecture is unusual in that the 19th-century wings telescope up, instead of down, from the original wing. The white brick, black shutters, and historical olive green trim color are a serene palette against the houses majestic specimen trees around the property, including a gigantic Sycamore that is the largest of its species in Maryland. The long white gravel drive under the sheltering canopy of mature trees passes by the barn and other outbuildings then curves around the front of the house. Brick steps lead up to the front porch of the early 19th century wing opening into a gracious foyer and stair hall with an elegant elliptical arch that rests on pilasters at the side walls to separate the public from private areas of the house. A French door at the rear of the foyer frames a vista of the lawn and Choptank River. To the side of the foyer are two identical parlors at the front and rear corners of the house. Both rooms have magnificent fireplace mantles and surround; one is a 1740 hand-carved mantel by noted English artisan woodcarver Grinnling Gibbons and the other is a 1780 mantel surrounded by the famous English architect and artisan, Robert Adam. The main floor of the 18th-century wing contains a spacious living room, dining room, original kitchen, and larger kitchen, pantry, two powder rooms, and a stunning sunroom connecting to a terrace along the rear of the house overlooking the Choptank River. Part of this wing was the final addition to the original home.The second floor of the 19th-century wing contains two bedrooms over the two parlors below with fireplaces and walk-in closets and two baths. The 18th-century wing and later addition contain an artists studio with cabinetry and sink that has a myriad uses" family TV room, arts and crafts room. The primary suite is located at the rear corner of this wing. It has a fireplace flanked by single windows and another window on the rear wall for panoramic views of the mature landscape and the Choptank River.
