LUXURY PORTFOLIO PROPERTY - Avignon was once the home of Barbara Mertz, a very successful American author of fiction and scholarly archaeological books who published in both her name and under the pen names Elizabeth Peters and Barbara Michaels. Today, it is one of the most distinctive Historic Estates in Frederick, Maryland. This 3 story Georgian home, Circa 1820, is handsomely constructed with locally sourced stone and slate with most of its Adamesque interior detailing intact. It is bounded by fields and a picturesque creek and includes a small orchard, a half-acre vineyard of Bordeaux Varietal grapes and about 3 acres of farmable USDA certified organic land. Adjacent to the house are about 2 fenced acres of mature perennial gardens including major plantings of roses, peonies, azaleas, lilacs, lilies and irises; 2 ponds connected by a waterfall; a woodland garden; a gazebo and a reflecting pool imitating Hadrian's Villa centered on a full-scale replica of the Discobolus of Myron in carrara marble. You'll be impressed by the gardens' varieties of richness, with nice pockets of intimacy woven throughout the landscapes. This home is perfect for someone looking for a beautiful, quiet country estate. (Dare I say that there is likely subdivision potential too). Perfect Property, Perfect Location & Perfectly Priced at $1,300,000.
