More About This House

With original construction dating back to 1795, "Oakland" is a timeless gem of Baltimore County history on over 9 acres. The large foyer, featuring a 3 story open peg staircase, leads into the formal living and dining rooms, featuring hundreds of years of Quaker craftsmanship and details that have been meticulously maintained. Extensive original built ins, light fixtures, and original pine flooring under 9'+ ceilings tells a story of years past while still feeling like home. Across the foyer, entering the 1973 addition, you will find the kitchen, breakfast room with bay window, powder room, and large yet cozy family room with brick accent wall/fireplace and beamed ceiling. Spiraling up the impressive staircase, 2 very spacious bedrooms each have a decorative fireplace and amazing views out of the tall, blown glass windows. The first full bath is large and contains a timless claw foot tub with separate standing shower. The second full bath has double sinks and a separate doorway leading to the shower and tub. The 3 remaining bedrooms are large with hardwood floors, large closets and lots of natural light. The grounds are beautiful, from the expansive backyard which includes a 3 acre back field, to the views across the street of the 4 acre field (currently in crop with a local farmer) and up the valley. The large back deck is perfect for entertaining on summer nights, and horses are allowed on the property! This sale consists of 3 parcels totaling 9.3 acres. Hereford School Zone, and very convenient commuter location. A truly beautiful and private setting - this home is not to be missed and this wonderful combination of history, property, pastoral setting, space, and all close to modern amenities does not come for sale often!

History

Oakland has been lovingly maintained by the Price/Matthews family for 200+ years. Its original features include mantles, fireplaces, cupboards, lighting, windows and floors. The house's condition is attributed to the quality workmanship of the early Quaker builders.The property in which this house resides was granted to Mordecai Price by Lord Baltimore in 1726 under the grant, "Price's Chance." In the 1720s, a log house was built on the property. Then in the early 1800s, a brick addition was added. The addition was unique in that it was made of brick, a product not readily available in the area. Most homes built then were made of materials such as native stone, granite and limestone. Oakland is estimated to be the oldest house in Quaker Valley. It is made of ballast brick brought in on horse and wagon from an English ship in the Baltimore Harbor. It is one of the few old brick structures in Baltimore County. The brick house is two and a half stories, plus a cellar. Its hallway has a lovely open stairway to the attic and is a fine piece of early Quaker workmanship. There are fireplaces in each of the four rooms located on two floors. Original cupboards are next to the fireplaces on both floors, as well as original mantels, trim and chair railings. The floor in the hallway and bedrooms are also original. The windows of "nine over six" on the first floor and "six over six" on the second floor include panes of hand blown glass.
