Long and Foster
Step Back in Time! To the late 1700's when this brick Georgian style Colonial home was built way out in the country for a middle class family. Now just a 5 minute drive and 2.4 miles from a Metro Station, this unique property is considered one of the oldest residential properties in Montgomery County, dating to circa 1790, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1973.
With 50,478 square feet of land (over 1 acre), the house is approached from a long curving driveway with towering locust trees and mature conifers. Sitting well back from main road, it's in a very private location, not easily viewed from the street. Known as "Milimar", the original home is of Flemish bond brick at front, with a later rear addition added around 100+ years ago.
Milimar retains a high degree of architectural integrity, with the majority of its exterior original features remaining intact. Thus, the seller, The National Trust for Historic Preservation, will place a preservation easement on the property as a condition of sale (copies available for review). The easement will protect the exterior of the house,and some landscape features. It will allow for removal or alteration of the rear addition, subject to approval by the National Trust. The home was originally 1 room deep, but the addition has enlarged the home at the rear.
There are 4 fireplaces in the house, from when this was the only source of heat in the property. The living and dining rooms are well sized with wood floors and fireplaces. The entrance hall is spacious and leads to an original curving staircase to the upper level. The kitchen has a family room addition and is open plan with table space and a family room area off it. It is livable, but could use an update. There's a full bathroom on each level of the 3 level home, and lots of storage room in the walk out basement, with a Recreation Room and washer/dryer location here.Upstairs the master bedroom is large, with a grand fireplace dominating the view. Wood floors on upper level and many windows with storms.
The property is sold in "As Is" condition and does need work and updating, but is priced accordingly. An inspection report of the property is available for any potential buyer to view. The property has oil fired central heating radiators and has window unit A/C. The two lots that convey with the property give a generous amount of space around the house, that sits largely hidden by privet hedges from the long winding driveway.
What a unique opportunity for a buyer to combine both history and privacy on a special site. Imagine the opportunity to renovate the home with history in view! Don't miss it!
