Imagine building your dream home on a private oasis surrounded by protected parkland ~only a 10-minute drive to shopping, dining and I-270 and a half-hour to the Nation~s capital!You can have that, and so much more with this spectacular 77-acre property tucked away in Boyds, Maryland, a rural community 27 miles north of Washington D.C. The farm property features sprawling meadow and farm land and miles and miles of hiking and horse trails, as well as fertile land for livestock and vegetation that can be subdivided for many other uses, such as equestrian, hunting, even beer farms, wine vineyards, etc~ A flowing spring runs through the property. Within roughly 50 yards of the property, a portion of Little Seneca Creek ~ controlled by Montgomery County ~ has a cold water stream that supports wild rainbow and brown trout populations. This stream, according to one of the owners, is regularly stocked and is great for trout fishing. ~The family goes downhill from the house and spends the day fishing in the creek for trout,~ says the owner.Towering native trees including white oak and tulip poplars grace the property, which also features a 25'x25' pole barn, a silo, an all-purpose shed and a 2,304-square-foot, brick home with an attached two-car garage. The 1981 two-level, single-family house also features four bedrooms, two full baths, two half-baths, two fireplaces and a 5-year-old heat pump. The basement has a 7-foot ceiling; and the garage offers 700 square feet. A 300-foot well provides water, and the septic tank is updated.Set about a mile from the Germantown Soccerplex and a short drive to dining, entertainment and surrounding parks including Black Hills Regional Park and Seneca Creek State Park, the property is bordered by Schaeffer and White Ground roads, and protective parkland that~s part of the Montgomery County Agricultural Reserve. And with over 50 glorious acres of meadowland and endless miles of public & private horse trails, the property is ideal for farmers, equestrians and hunters alike. The property has had quality deer management (QDM) over the last 16 years that the sellers have owned it. According to the Quality Deer Management Association, QDM is a management philosophy/practice that unites landowners, hunters, and managers in a common goal of producing biologically and socially balanced deer herds within existing environmental, social and legal constraints.For hunters of foxes, turkeys, deer, elk, etc~, the Potomac Hunt Club is nearby, and in the words of the current owners: The area is ~one of the best for turkey hunting in Montgomery County!~ The Montgomery County Model Airpark on Schaeffer Road and the Schaeffer Farms Mountain Bike Park are also nearby, as are a host of other recreational and entertainment venues. The unincorporated setting may be rural, but is less than 10 minutes to civilization, and the natural resources on this extraordinary property are vast. Aside from the fertile land for farming and vegetation, the mostly leveled land can be subdivided for various purposes. The possibilities of uses are endless! For example, the next owner can grow and harvest a percentage of the land, and rent out to other farmers who may need the land. And land on this property, say the owners, is ~very productive with well-drained soil~ on which they have raised cattle as well as grown corn, soybean, and hay & orchard grass for bales that can be sold.Simply put: This amazing property, or personal retreat, offers endless possibilities. Create your private oasis!Take the Drone Tour now: https://player.vimeo.com/video/391848522
