19.26 +/- Acres
FREDERICK COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE is pleased to present a rare opportunity to acquire this wedding venue located in Keymar, Maryland. This unique historic property is currently used as a wedding venue, and is being offered as a turnkey operation for entrepreneurs and business owners looking to break into the wedding industry. This property would also be ideal for adding a versatile event space to a business portfolio.
This prime location can be modified or redeveloped into the perfect site for different kinds of businesses and events, such as wineries, breweries, corporate retreats, local tourism accommodations, and more. The 19.26 acres includes the 3,637+/- square-foot stone mansion with additional detached structures. Listed with the Frederick County Landmark Foundation, the mansion was built in the 1790’s and is an enchanting piece of Frederick County with a rich history. Early records of the land date back to 1794, when Joshua Delaplane bought 600 acres surrounding Double Pipe Creek. At the time, the property bordered estates of notable historical figures including the author of the U.S. national anthem, Francis Scott Key.
In 1842, the property was owned by Bishop Daniel P. Saylor, who had a personal relationship with U.S. president Abraham Lincoln. Having been passed down through families and local residents, the extensive history of the Mansion has resulted in a blend of historic detailing and modern amenities. The current owner’s restoration efforts have returned this home to its former grandeur. The main house has two kitchens, vintage wallpaper, restored original flooring, spacious rooms, exquisite woodwork, exposed brick, fireplaces, and updated utilities.
The outdoor areas include gardens, brick walkways and several patios, and a completely rebuilt front porch. Able to entertain up to 200 guests, this charming venue creates the perfect setting for couples seeking a romantic space to tie the knot.
