The Perfect Country House, just 90 minutes from DC: Hiram Hedges House (c. 1750) is a stunning historic farmhouse, beautifully renovated with all-new systems, high-end finishes, and original character on 5 wooded acres. A hidden gem located between Shepherdstown & Berkeley Springs, this delightful house was fully restored in 2006, implementing all-new systems (electrical, plumbing, HVAC, roofing), while retaining original windows, floors, and architectural details. An additional phase of renovation was recently completed -- taking the property to a whole new level of style, inspired by English country houses. On the interior, wood floors (including desirable wide planks) refinished in Scandinavian White give a luminous glow to the whole house. A Modern Farmhouse Kitchen anchors the east wing, pairing neo-traditional design + function. Tranquil farmhouse style flows throughout the home, with a private Primary Bedroom, vintage-inspired Baths, stately Living & Dining Rooms, and handpainted wallpaper. A large paved rear patio overlooks a seasonal butterfly garden and woods. The exterior benefits from new whole-house paint, restored porches, new guttering, new landscaping, and a custom Estate Fence, which offers privacy and visually distinguishes the property. A haven from the city, this special place is a terrific WFH option, benefitting from traditional rooms, peace and quiet, wooded views, and 5G service. A separate Guest Wing offers great airbnb potential. The house sits on 5 acres, surrounded by mature trees and fields, with limited sightline to neighbors.
Property includes a huge historic Bank Barn (c.1909) -- perfect for events or animals -- and the original stone smokehouse -- an ideal potting shed or potential sauna/spa. The subdividable lot offers income opportunity, and farm status keeps taxes low. Hiram Hedges House exudes tranquil beauty, with close proximity to the best of country living: farm markets, hot springs & spas, wineries, yoga, horseback riding, hiking, mountains, and scenic drives. This is only the 2nd time the property has come to market in 271 years. It is a rare opportunity to own a historic home – one that is completely turnkey, a perfect balance of old-meets-new. ***This radiant farmhouse is currently featured in Washingtonian Magazine (June 2021).*** ARCHITECTURALLY SIGNIFICANT & HISTORIC, ELIGIBLE FOR NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES.
