Known originally as the Dr. Jacob’s House, this truly unique, south-county farmhouse was built in 1850 for Edward Jacobs and his bride, Priscilla Griffith, who hailed from Baltimore. Located on “The Cliffs,” with a commanding view of Herring Bay, the house was the original seat of a 100-acre farm with wheat and cornfields stretching to the shores of the bay. Legend has it that a cave behind the house was used as part of the Underground Railroad. Now listed on the Maryland Historical Trust, this home embodies the charm of days gone by while embracing all the modern conveniences.

This home has been restored to all its original glory with historically accurate fixtures and décor. To add to the charm is the picturesque location, including tasteful landscaping, perennial flower beds, vegetable gardens and a pool. Imagine yourself sitting on the front porch enjoying the gorgeous Bay breezes or observing the bald eagles and osprey as they fish for supper. If boating is your thing, the award-winning Herrington Harbor Marina, with direct access to the Bay, is five minutes away. Only a 25 minute drive to the Washington D.C. beltway, the property offers a quality of life that feels like a country retreat. The past owners have truly cared for this home, and now it’s ready for you to continue the legacy and create your own lasting memories.
