A Month For One of the More Intriguing Homes in Maryland

Perhaps the most intriguing home on the market in Maryland took about a month to find a buyer. This riverfront property in Centreville, Maryland was formerly part of a farming estate before it was converted into a unique home made out of two grain silos in the early 1980s. 

The main building consists of two silos featuring walkways connecting the pillars on each of the four floors. Wrap-around decks are found on the second and third levels. Because of the local jurisdictions' height restrictions, the structure is one of the few buildings in the area with sweeping 360-degree views of the rural countryside beyond, thanks to an exception to the area height restrictions for agricultural dwellings.

The property sits on almost 44 acres of land and is accessible by a mile-long drive. With 600 feet of access along the Chester River and 2,200 feet on Whites Cove, locals who travel down the waterways consider this property to be a local landmark, according to the listing agent.

The primary level of this four-bedroom Arlington home, which found a buyer in just 72 hours, features an entry hall, two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom and an open concept kitchen that expands into a dining/living space with French doors that open to a rear deck. Upstairs, the main suite features a small walk-out patio, a fireplace, a massive walk-in closet and an en-suite bathroom with a double vanity sink and glass tiling accents. An open space on this level would make for a great office, complete with built-in shelving. The backyard includes a garage converted to a gym and a spacious grassy area. An unfinished basement could be renovated into extra living space.
