PENTRIDGE WOODS FARM, in an unspoiled corner of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, could be a weekend refuge—or your forever family home. On almost 170 private acres, with a modern and comfortable main house and a contemporary guest cottage down the road, this low-maintenance property has tilled fields, two ponds, and a dense forest. Pentridge Lane neighbors are a friendly community of mostly waterfront homes. Nearby Chestertown offers cultural and athletic events at Washington College, golf and sailing at the informal country club, a renowned farmers market on Saturdays, live music and theatre venues, a hospital, good schools, coffee shops and restaurants, and a thriving arts community. The area has long been a major sailing and cycling destination and is rapidly becoming an equestrian center. While Kent County fiercely preserves its agricultural heritage, it is less than a two-hour drive from Washington, Baltimore or Philadelphia and not much farther from the NYC area. The main house, designed by a Yale Architecture School grad as a modern farmhouse with a full basement, has four bedrooms, 2 baths, a large detached garage, and an interior courtyard garden. The center of the soaring open-plan main floor is a massive double-sided Finnish soapstone fireplace that divides the kitchen from the sitting area, with French doors opening onto the deck and brick courtyard. This floor also has a dining room/library, two bedrooms and a study/fourth bedroom. The second floor consists of a huge media room or studio and a large en-suite master bedroom. The distinctive two-story guesthouse (a short drive or ten minute walk from the main house) has a large deck and windows that wrap around the corners of the cube-shaped building. The guesthouse is currently a rental property but could easily revert to the owners’ personal use. About eighty acres are farmed under a shared profit/loss arrangement by a local farmer (qualifying the owner for agricultural property tax benefits). The forest is prime deer-hunting terrain, also generating revenue. Because strict Kent County zoning laws protect agricultural land and the Chesapeake Bay watershed, this farm can never be subdivided and the deed also designates the woods as an avian refuge. As a result, the farm is home to resident and migratory birds, an oversupply of deer, as well as foxes, rabbits and other small animals. Weekend residents can enjoy all the farm offers with hardly any work, as the farming and garden maintenance are now done by trusted local people. But Pentridge Woods Farm would welcome more active participation by engaged owners, who might want to add an organic vegetable garden, experiment with different market crops, build a stable and keep horses, or establish their own vineyard. The possibilities are endless. Note: the listing agent’s website has an aerial video and more info/photos.
