Property Description

Welcome to Summer Breeze, an extraordinary gentleman’s farm with nearly 35 beautiful acres of rolling hills in the sought-after Green Valley which is located in Frederick County near Lake Linganore. Well known for its rich Linganore soil, the entire area is sustained naturally by the plentiful rainfall, excellent drainage, and idyllic weather patterns in the foothills of the valley, with close proximity to rivers and tributaries. This exquisite property, with its privileged position in the lush green valley, takes full advantage of the rich soil for its crops, while a lovely estate home presides from the hilltop overlooking the fields. The Audrey Carroll Audubon Sanctuary is just across the street and is the perfect neighbor protecting upland meadows, wetlands, woodlands, creeks, and ponds for its wildlife to thrive. The primary residence at 6655 Detrick Road, is a distinctive southern-style luxury estate home that is perfectly situated to take full advantage of majestic rural views on all sides. A welcoming front porch and wicker rockers greet you in front, while the outdoor amenities in the rear invite lux-styled outdoor living. Gather well or simply relax quietly on the rear covered porch and dining patio overlooking a glistening in-ground, saltwater pool with low maintenance features and an automatic pool cover. If you prefer, a therapeutic-grade hot tub is standing at the ready to aid in recovery after a good workout. Inside, enjoy spaces for all manner of entertaining including living and dining formals, as well as casual gatherings around a cook’s kitchen and breakfast room that seamlessly flow into a dramatic two-story great room. The main level is completed by a separate wing boasting a luxury owner’s bedroom suite, and two generously-sized, private work-at-home offices that embrace virtual work and study-at-home trends. The upper level includes a loft study, bonus flex room, three bedrooms, and two full baths. Outside features include a three-car attached garage and an adjacent detached garage that could be easily adapted to become a carriage house above. A 40-by-60 out-building is flexible and could be a pole barn for several of your treasured horses. With nearly 35 acres, current crops, rich soil, and Agriculture zoning, this estate farm enjoys the Homestead Tax Credit and extremely low taxes in addition to many revenue-producing options. A Gentleman’s Farmer can enlist and pay workers to plant and harvest for a sizeable profit, or, simply lease to another farmer and so on. Local wineries also know how well vineyards thrive in Linganore soil and will gladly lease for planting and harvesting their grapes. Bring your dreams, aspirations, and your boots, and enjoy the beauty of a luxury home, nestled in the richness of a private farm setting in the heart of Green Valley with low taxes and endless revenue-producing opportunities. All this awaits you, with easy access to BWI just 30 minutes away, and other popular destinations.
