Sold for $3,735,000




Circa 1663

Welcome to  "Hampden," an exceptional estate located on picturesque La Trappe Creek. This remarkable property is a testament to architectural history. The main house envelopes the original structure, which dates to 1663 (now a charming den) with additions spanning the 300+ years since. The present owner has meticulously renovated the entire house in 2018 including restoring the structural integrity, wiring, HVAC systems and the addition of kitchen/mud room and primary bedroom wings.  


The formal entrance is flanked with two large rooms, exquisite woodworking detail and original yet pristine wood floors.  The front hall leads to an elegant sunroom.  From here, take in the view towards the water and the majestic specimen trees which create breathtaking shadows across the rolling lawn at sunset, and a magical park-like setting when the landscape lighting illuminates them at night.


The recently added first-floor primary suite is quietly removed from the rest of the house and a sanctuary unto itself including its own sitting room with fireplace, wet bar and his/her bathrooms with heated floors each with its own walk-in closet. 


The brand new kitchen addition is a culinary masterpiece that will delight even the most discerning chef, boasting top-notch Sub Zero and Wolfe appliances, including a steam oven and a space for a large wine cooler or extra refrigerator.  Just off the kitchen is the quintessential Eastern Shore Mud Room, with plenty of counter space and storage: perfect for flower arranging, coat and boot storage and, of course, muddy dogs.  


The pool has a charming pool house with two changing rooms and a summer kitchen.  The multi-slip dock is deep water (5’ at mean low tide) and powered to host large boats.


For guests, there is a charming accessory building with two bedrooms and a bath. Other buildings include an office or studio with full bath, perfect for remote work, fitness center, media room or studio (fabulous southern exposure and lighting). There is also a  two car garage and separate two bay shop/garage offering ample space for storage and hobbies.

Circa 1663, Hampden displays significant architectural features.  The original dwelling from 1663 was a one-room brick structure.  In 1750 additional improvements including a center hallway, living and dining rooms are added along with second-floor bedrooms.   The residence has been improved and expanded over time with a major restoration just completed in 2019.  Substantial structural, mechanical and electrical improvements have provided a basis for the next 350 years.  The outdoors are brought inside with a remarkable sunroom and new terrace complimenting the historic façade with modern features.


The farm consists of two parcels: the house parcel of 16 acres+/- consists of the improvements with the additional 8 acres +/- that is deed restricted with a Conservation Easement held by Eastern Shore Land Conservancy to preserve the conservation attributes of the property.  Private recreational activity, agricultural use and accessories supporting agriculture are permitted. Currently under cultivation, the point parcel has hundreds of feet of waterfront and provides a host of opportunities for habitat restoration, pasture, woodland restoration or the addition of a fresh-water pond.  This is a unique opportunity to indulge in your passion for the great outdoors.
