Property Description

Welcome to Historic Main Street in bucolic Washington County! A rather gorgeous family homestead and an incredible event venue awaits nestled in the setting of Civil War times and Antietam battlefield. Seven Gates Farm served as a farmstead, a studio, a home and a gorgeous workplace. The barns, gardens, solarium and incredibly cozy house offer warm venues for events in the house and meandering throughout the expansive property. Come through the lovely front gate along the fieldstone path and step onto the covered front sitting porch. Mature trees surround as you step under the transom gracing the front door. Sunlight warms the six-over-six windows and peaks over Elijah's garden off to the West. Step into the original brick over log home, and you'll be stopped in your tracks, feeling like you're coveted back in time. Breathe in the exposed beams on the first floor amid a subdued peaceful palette. Hear the whispers of folklore coming from the original wood floors. Let your eyes wander to the old locks still on most doors. Notice the mantel covered fireplace, that once warmed the earliest families and most recently housed a craned dutch oven. This kitchen fireplace was recently updated with gas logs. The kitchen, while fully functioning with today’s amenities, still retains its charm with old-time touches. The household necessities for laundry and rest room space are conveniently situated and appointed in a modern fashion. The other side of the kitchen welcomes you to step right out into Elijah's gardens. Step onto the pea gravel and wander away! Before you get too far off the beaten path, go back inside and find the winding back stairs that lead up to the three charming bedrooms and a large bonus room/study above the kitchen. Stay here for a while and sense that as the day comes to an end, candles would have been lit to encourage peace and quiet among the farm. Modern amenities are optional with electric, a fully functional oil burner and power throughout, living in a pure folk like manner was the caretakers personal and private choice. It's all very well documented in social media instagram accounts under "Seven gates farm" and hardback books published by Hearst. The real life views are endless like the ones through the arched entryway in the White Garden appreciated through heavy original leaded glass windows. If you follow your heart, you'll definitely end up outside on the meandering farm grounds. The grounds feature two original outbuildings, a German-sided wash house and a log smokehouse, as well as a roof-covered cistern wishing well with a pulley hanging from above. On the North side of the home, English boxwoods define a secret sunken dining area surrounded by a handcrafted dove enclosure, martin houses, urns, an established and fruitful vegetable garden, the adorable facility potting shed, and just beyond the weeping willow tree, the greenhouse. Along the journey traveling behind the house, the old smokehouse still has hooks and nifty tools. A specialized topiary garden is situated next to the orchard with variety apple trees. The tour doesn't end there. The barn, wash house, wishing well, herb garden and workshop line the guest parking area. The former carriage house lovingly stands guard of the Southern corner of the well loved home. Beautifully decorated and captured photos showing off Seven Gates glory can be appreciated and seen in Country Living's publicly available book, "Seasons at Seven Gates Farm." While this show place is offered in Winter time, the thoughts of Spring delivering bountiful gardens and big bouquets of returning flowers is warm and refreshing. For once, I truly believe, "If these walls could talk," and OH, the stories she would tell. Seven Gates Farm awaits her new owners ready to preserve her past and revive her future. We can't wait to turn the page and continue the tradition of lovingly caring for and maintaining this treasure!
