is back in Maryland
for another beautiful old home. The historic Rockland estate in Fairplay, Maryland goes up for sale on June 11.
The 25-plus-acre equestrian estate was originally listed for $2.75 million. The property includes a 8,600-square-foot mansion as well as a turnkey horse farm with fenced pastures. The current owners Michael Moreland and Jason Daisey purchased the property in 2004 and have completed many modern infrastructure improvements to the main mansion, which was originally built in 1803, including installing central air conditioning, remodeling the kitchen, and constructing a 3,000-bottle wine cellar in one of the basement rooms. The stone home was built by Colonel Frisby Tilghman, son of Maryland's first attorney general and the home is listed on the Maryland Inventory of Historic Sites and is eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. Victorian enhancements were made to the home in the later part of the 19th century. It has a Federal-style suspended staircase in the south wing leading from the ground floor to the third floor attic and illuminated by an oval skylight.
This home was originally listed for $2.75 million but is selling with a reserve of $1.325 million
and a pre-sale estimate of $1.325 million to $1.8 million. The sale is being conducted in cooperation with Gary Gestson, a certified Historic Property Specialist with Long & Foster Real Estate.
