Take a step back and breathe as you enter Darnall Farm. Crossing the wooden bridge starts your step back in time opening into a farm complex that is reminiscent of a farm in the British Isles or Europe. Seneca sandstone is predominant in the buildings and the buildings show the principles of construction to achieve beauty, simplicity and solidity that have endured since the 18th century. The current owners lovingly restored the 1760's main home and made additions compatible with the old stone wing and has not detracted from the original construction. The brick courtyard leads you to the main entrance of the home. The floor plan is designed for comfortable living yet a sense of the history runs throughout the house. Four bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, heart of pine floors, gourmet kitchen with gourmet La cornue gas stove , butler's pantry and heated marble bathroom floors are just a few of the amenities of the home. Opening to the courtyard is another sandstone building restored for a studio or office. The Seneca sandstone worker's quarters serves as storage. A separate stone barn with 3 stalls for horses and livestock. A 19th century frame wagon shed serves as a garage and storage. The 20th century block barn has been restored and features two floors which can be used to seat up to 300 guests. Or would be an ideal car barn. The bottom floor features hardwood floors, rustic walls and large doors on both ends. The top floor features a vaulted ceiling with exposed rafters, beautiful chandlers and multiple windows with window seats. This property has featured many weddings and events. Through out the 18 acres there are gardens, woods and streams to add to the bucolic atmosphere of Darnall Farm. Close in location just a mile from Route 28, the new Windridge Winery and minutes to Darnestown and Potomac. Plus located in the award winning Poolesville School District.
