Property Description

Grandview (circa 2003) – Everything about this 80-acre country estate reveals its bespoke origin. Absolute privacy was paramount, leading to a home that is invisible from the road. Parcels in the Maryland countryside were scoured for a decade before this specific grouping was chosen and assembled. At almost 600’ high in the Belfast Valley, the views are arresting. From the flower gardens right outside your doors - cultivated to attract certain species of butterflies - through the majesty of the Greco-Roman fountain - quenching the thirst of native birds – through the endless topography of gently rolling hills - in every color of sun-kissed green – in all directions – lies a veritable feast for your senses. You have never seen a vista this far-reaching, heard nature this deeply, or consumed the beauty of Maryland’s countryside quite like this. That’s why this property is called Grandview. The selection of the land was just the beginning of the curation process. Every aspect of the 9,000 square foot main home was custom-made. The region’s very best builder was brought to bear. Every cubic foot was imagined with the most maniacal attention to detail, gathering the most lavish and exotic of materials from all corners of the world, and calling for the most creative inspiration and execution of the skilled craftsmen and artisans assembled - all to construct such a masterpiece. And from its perch atop the grandest, natural spectacle in the Sparks countryside, a most profound sense of peace is yours. Complimenting the manor house is a charming Cottage (2BR/2BA, approx. 2,000 SF) for overflow family and friends, a Tenant House (3BR/2BA, approx. 2,000 SF) that is currently home to caretakers of the property and a Barn Complex, with ample room for grand entertainment … or farm use. 40+ acres of fenced pastures and tillable fields. Two separately deeded parcels with additional subdivision potential. The property is not encumbered by any conservation or preservation easement. If you’re looking for more than your ‘typical’ lovely Maryland estate - if you’re looking to transcend adjectives - this is The One.
