Wow, what an opportunity! Presenting the historic Riggs-Wilcoxen house, built in the late 18th century, which is sited on two acres and has all the vintage charm of yesteryear, the serenity and peace of the country, along with the modern conveniences of today, and proximity to major commuter routes. The property includes a 2,000 square foot metal barn, the Milk House outbuilding which is a perfect home office/studio, with recently installed heating and air conditioning, the original silo, and a gazebo (ready for a refresh). The property backs to Goshen Branch Stream Valley Park, a 129 acre, undeveloped park with a fully maintained trail that connects with Seneca Creek trail, which connects to the all of the main trails in Montgomery County from Damascus down to the C&O Canal. The barn is separately metered with a thick concrete floor, large barn doors, outlets, and a full stage, which can be used for a business, rental, garage, parties, etc. The main home is a notable historic property with many of the original features, including original front windows and door, heart pine floors, parlor cupboards, four fireplaces, and a brick basement floor. The upgrades to the house include new neutral carpet on the second and third floors, two zone HVAC systems (one is two years old), a modern kitchen with solid cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, and a beverage cooler, and a primary suite with a modern but charming bathroom. The roof is 100% standing seam solid copper, with all solid copper gutters and down spouting. The home has extensive landscaping and hardscaping, including a redwood balcony, bluestone patios and walks, and an array of spectacular plantings including 100+ year old boxwoods lining the drive, redwood trees, a massive magnolia tree, incense cedars, tree hydrangeas, and much more. All this, and only three miles to Butler's Orchard for fall apple-picking, only about five miles to Wegmans, Home Depot, Target etc. in Germantown to the west, or a few miles to Laytonsville to the east, and few more to shopping and dining in Olney to the south. Come see for yourself!
