Property Description

Historic Holland-Claggett Farm c.1770.......................................... Considered one of Montgomery County’s most significant historic farms, beautiful historic Holland-Claggett Farm in Brookeville Maryland includes 11.53 private acres, house, a tenant house and a caretaker’s ranch house, barns, pastoral views, rolling fields, mature woods and adjoins parkland. The historic Holland-Claggett farm house was built around 1770 by the same people who built another nearby historic farm, ‘Prospect Hill’. In her description of the Holland-Claggett farm house, Roberta Hahn writes: “This may well be one of the earlier homes in the area since the Holland family was well established here by the 18th century.” [Source: Page 7 of the MHT Inventory Form.].............................. The chair rails, wood mantels and staircase are all original, as well as, the random-width pine floors with their hand-made square-headed nails. The kitchen cooking hearth is very similar to the one in George Washington’s Mount Vernon. The attic is completely floored with wooden boards and is accessible via the original wooden staircase. Their is also a garret over the east wing of the house............................. The house overlooks the confluence of Reddy Branch and the Hawlings River with access to the trails of the Reddy Branch and Hawlings River Parks. One can take a wonderful hike along Reddy Branch up to the Rachel Carson Preserve or kayak down the Hawlings River to the mouth of the Patuxent.............................. The house and out-buildings are in need of restoration & are designated by Montgomery County for preservation. This is a rare opportunity to own a historic estate, a horse farm, or family compound, in beautiful rural Maryland, yet minutes from downtown DC.
