As the owner of the William W Duley House you would become the next steward of one of the most historically significant estates of Prince George's County. The original 1809 Tidewater architecture, a rare survival of this style, was beautifully incorporated into the new Federal-style addition of 1873. The intertwining roof lines are unique for any era. The interior of this incredible home mirrors the easy flow of the exterior with a pleasing combination of large and mid sized rooms throughout. This 3 bedroom 2 ½ bath home has a quaint bonus room on the third floor, natural wood floors, and federalist style woodwork throughout. The galley kitchen has exotic natural stone on the tops and backsplash. Working wood burning fireplaces in the den and parlor plus decorative fireplaces in the master and dining room bring the old world warmth to the estate. The 5 outbuildings are in excellent, functional condition and include an historically important smokehouse and one of the oldest carriage houses in the county complete with three bays, large doors, and an upper room with windows. The bank barn has two horse stalls and a chicken coop naturally climate controlled. The 3.44 acre farmette has enough fenced pasture for two horses with the option to fence more. It is located on the Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Route, the MD Lower Patuxent Scenic Byway, and 5 minutes from two major parks. The Patuxent River Park boasts 6000 acres along the river and miles of riding, biking, hiking trails, boat launch, fishing piers, kayak rental, and an excellent nature center with lookout towers. Rosaryville Park has 982 acres with miles of outstanding trails. Just 20-30 minutes drive from DC, Annapolis, and Baltimore Croom (as the locals call this area) is the best kept secret in the DMV.
