Description

THE KEEDY-MACHAT FARM. "It's All About the Land." -- This small farm is a remarkable example of a Pre-Civil War authentic Victorian Period home. The elegant post-civil war brick residence (c. 1875), with original detail work, has been deemed architecturally significant by experts. Constructed upon a rise high above Little Antietam Creek by Christian M. Keedy, the early Victorian home enjoys an ideal creekfront location . HISTORY. During the Battle of Antietam, it is well-documented that John Keedy's wartime home played a key role with General McClellan and the Headquarters encampment located in Keedysville . His son, C.M. Keedy, was the first burgess of Keedysville and a prominent merchant who dealt in lumber, grain, coal, cement + a ticket agent for the B&O Railroad's Hagerstown to Brunswick line that once bordered the property. Some time after the Civil War era, Mr. Keedy replaced what was the the original home place with a grand T-shaped solid brick residence five bays wide, embellished by a belt course of finely-cut stones upon a limestone foundation. During the 1950's another Mayor of the Town of Keedysville remodeled part of the home's lower level into a rec room. - Property improvements include a massive c. 1850 Pre-Civil War bank barn (72'x46') that was converted into a field hospital for troops during the Battle of Antietam. SECLUDED LIVING. This unique waterfront orientation to continually-flowing springs and a pure creek, all situated within a short walk to the 13-room home. Special residential uses for the listing include (1) home office equipped with Comcast cable + Verizon phone lines (2) spacious 2-level barn & contiguous outbuildings for a hobbyist, artist, craftsperson, antique buff, or gardener (3) family compound possibility with a future site within the tillable front fields; of course, subject to approvals. (4) slate and stone patios, bordered by native limestone walls, provide for outdoor fare directly off the kitchen side porch. Extensive parking . (5) Building lot potential in the front field, public utilities available, subject to Town approval. - Tree farm located across from the main entrance driveway. LANDSCAPING & GROUNDS. Informal terraces, various perennials, original & added stone walls, antique brick walkways; variety of gardens; winding entrance lane. A walled-in 19th c. historic spring forms its own overflow stream that supports fresh watercress. Tenant farmer tends to the fields.
