This beautiful American classic home sits on over 2 acres right in the middle of horse country, only 25 minutes from Annapolis. . . . . Welcome to Lancaster Hill - Circa 1850. This elegant home sits on what was once part of the Sudley property owned by a wealthy and influential family, the Kensey Johns, who built this home for a family member, so no cost or details were spared. Large rooms all with Hardwood floors; 10-foot ceilings throughout most of the house; extra wide baseboards & crown molding; solid wood interior doors; 5 fireplaces; and the formal living and dining rooms have floor to ceiling pocket doors which can be made to open onto the large front porch. The large kitchen & family room combo makes for a great space to hold large family gatherings. . . . . Significant planning and design went into building this masterpiece - from all the natural light that fills each room to the entryway with its beautiful staircase - and so many other features and intricate details, far too numerous to list here, this outstanding home is a must see! . . . . . And the beauty continues outside, starting with your 43 ft. wide covered front porch where you can sit and enjoy the country surroundings and open space. . . . . . the entire property is fenced with white board, as are the horse farms surrounding the property. Beautifully landscaped with brick walkways and stone retaining walls; an in-ground swimming pool and a large circular driveway that connects the house to the large detached garage. . . . . In 2009, the current owners built the large 1.5 story (42 ft x 26 ft.), 3 car detached garage with heat, A/C and its own separate 200 Amp electric service. One bay is currently being used as an office but could be converted back to a 3rd bay if so desired. The 2nd floor is one large finished room (40.9 ft. x 12 ft. w/ carpet, drywall, lights & ceiling fans), and could be used for offices, bedrooms, etc. . . . . . Also located on the property is a small barn / shed with two stalls; Automatic full house generator and much more, see full list of owner upgrades. . . . . . Owners will consider seller financing for a portion of the purchase. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Yes, this is a historic home, and here is your chance to own and preserve part of history, however, this magnificent home has so much more appeal than just its historical significance. It is for anyone who wants large open rooms; wood floors; fireplaces galore and a touch of class inside and out. Built from old-growth wood which is structurally stronger and more rot-resistant than lumber used today. The house and property are in magnificent condition, as the current owners have not only taken great care to preserve the property, the house has also been upgraded with all the modern conveniences we have become accustom
