This handsome estate is known as “Wilson’s Inheritance“. I couldn’t find out the reason why it bears this name, but we can let our imaginations do the legwork and create a plausible hypothesis. (Perhaps Master Wilson had six son’s but he decided to leave the house instead to his youngest daughter…)
In any case, the house is old… one of those so-old-we-don’t-really-know-how-old it is. Only that it is circa 1838. And it is a beauty!
Historic Wilson’s Inheritance c.1838 is one of the most significant and cherished 19th century farmsteads remaining in Maryland. This private 120+ acre estate retains many of its 19th century buildings including a large bank barn, and an elegant manor home that reflects the affluence of its original owner. The house has been beautifully restored and remodeled, preserving its historic detailing.
Wilson’s Inheritance is currently for sale, priced at $1,199,000. It has 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms on three full floors of living space.
This room (below) appears to be part of a kitchen… perhaps the original kitchen with cooking hearth? Gorgeous!
And this next picture is just purely thrilling for us old house lovers:
Look at the beautiful wood floors in the bedrooms…
This room (below) appears to be another kitchen with fireplace:
I really love the blue trim on the old cupboards, doors and window sills, but those newer cabinets and appliances (below) appear to be just sort of shoved in there:
Kind of a letdown for a million dollar-plus priced home.
But it’s the grounds that make this house a true estate…
Historic well next to the house…
And an old red barn… how idyllic!
What’s your humble opinion - is the kitchen a disappointment at that price point? Or could you overlook it for the rest of the amazing house and property?
