Property Description:

HAMPDEN Circa 1663 Trappe, Maryland located between Easton and Oxford, Hampden is reported to be the oldest surviving brick residence in Talbot County. On the still waters of Sawmill Cove, Hampden is comprised of two parcels totaling 24 acres. With West/Southwest exposure on the creek and a mature canopy of trees around the house, the setting is bucolic and steeped in time. The main residence is a one- and one-half-story, l-shaped brick dwelling with a five-bay façade. There are four bedrooms with a first-floor primary suite. Quietly removed from the rest of the house, the primary provides a study/library with exemplary millwork, fireplace, and gracious views of Sawmill Cove along with separate ensuite baths. Formal living and dining appointments blend with casual spaces including a remarkable sunroom, open kitchen and family rooms, quintessential Eastern Shore Mud Room, second-floor guest suites, studio, and office join in a remarkable assembly of form, function, and historic significance. Additional improvements complement the setting including an original smokehouse, pool with changing rooms/summer kitchen, a two-bedroom guest accessory, farm office, workshop, greenhouse, and dock with five feet at mean low tide. The grounds of Hampden are complemented by a mature canopy of trees along with open space for agriculture, livestock, or habitat restoration. The location on La Trappe Creek is a proven waterfowl staging area on the sheltered waters of the cove.
