Flat Run Farm was designed and built to satisfy the need for connection with the land and mind. It offers the opportunity to be a part of something relevant today, and pay homage to the history of the great battles of the Civil War. This magnificent Adams and Frederick County retreat is divided by the actual Mason-Dixon Line on 217 gently rolling acres at the foothills of the Catoctin Mountains. Equipped with a total of nine buildings, a stocked eight-acre pond, and more than five acres of trails this estate offers picturesque views, tranquility and luxurious functionality. Sixty-six acres of this private, gated retreat are currently being farmed. Built with local field stone and the finest hand-hewn timbers, this incomparable log retreat is perfectly sited overlooking the pond and surrounded by mature trees, while still flooded with light. The main home presents a full gourmet kitchen with butler~s pantry to meet every entertaining requirement. The kitchen opens to multiple inviting sitting areas enhanced by six stone fireplaces, walls of windows, and soaring wooden beamed ceilings. The private owner~s suite has elevator service to the main level cleverly tucked in a cylindrical stone silo. There are six additional bedrooms, conservatory, loft and a theater room in the main home. The sprawling rear stone terrace was designed for grilling, and enjoying a summer lemonade or cocktail after dinner. The workshop/ greenhouse building is sited right off the main home offering a full state-of-the-art wood and machine shop, as well as the potting shed for exterior raised garden beds, a guest bedroom and full bath upstairs, and a powder room on the main level. An absolutely captivating space is to be found in the club house and spa with waterfront views, a full gymnasium, resistance swimming pool, spa, sauna, steam shower and bath. There is a large second level family room with kitchen, audio visual suite, a gas fireplace, billiards, shuffleboard and second level deck overlooking the pond. There is a two-car garage for the main house, space for two to three cars in the workshop, and a four-car auto barn ready for a car collection and all terrain vehicles. The pavilion was just added for pure outdoor fun. It is equipped with two outdoor barbecues, and a large stone fireplace. A perfect place to gather to tell stories, relax and entertain. The pavilion features full audio visual and will comfortably hold up to 50 guests. Three original barns were kept and painted traditional barn red, with one converted into a half court basketball court while the others are used for holding farm machinery. Flat Run Farm also offers additional space for caretakers or guests to reside. Make an appointment to experience this dream retreat in person.
