Folly Quarter Manor circa 1936
YOWZA! Apparently just down the road is "one of the most spectacular properties in the Mid Atlantic states". Who knew? It's called Folly Quarter Manor and it was built by the owners of Pimlico and is part of the Doughregan Manor Farm, owned by Charles Carroll, signer of the Dec. of Independence. Amazing 54+ ac. of pristine pastures, horse barns, guest cottage, pool & tennis, out buildings to complement the world class residence of 8000 sq.ft of luxury. 6 bedrooms. 5 full baths plus 3 partial baths. 6 fireplaces. Pond and stream. Now just $15,300,000 -- down from $17,000,000.
If you're interested in snapping it up, it's listed by my favorite Historic Real Estate Porn realtor Kimberly Kepnes -- 443-250-4241 - I wonder if she'd let me in to take a peek....
