Stunning modern home and 1700s log cabin surrounded by lush gardens in Lakehurst
Just over the Baltimore City-Baltimore County line, this one-of-a-kind property is tucked away among lush, sprawling gardens. There are two homes on the property, a modern main house built in 2003 and a historic log cabin built in 1743, which was disassembled in Charleston, South Carolina, and reconstructed here.
The main house features a library hallway and a stunning open living room and sleek kitchen with massive windows, a floating limestone hearth and 300-year-old English oak and chestnut floors. The primary bedroom has a modern bathroom, a dressing room and access to a private courtyard. The log cabin contains a charming and rustic living space, with exposed beam ceilings and a fireplace. There’s a half bathroom and, upstairs, another bedroom. There’s also a large screened porch.
Outside, the home has multiple gardens, courtyards and paths to enjoy and explore. Highlights of the property include the patio, made of 19th century marble, with a greenery-covered trellis, a welcoming forecourt and the more formal sundial garden. The grounds have been designed masterfully to create a magical series of unique outdoor spaces, unlike anything else on the market.
