New price! Don't miss this once in a generation opportunity to make this 171-acre farm, winery and residence in beautiful Clear Spring, MD your own. This property has been in family hands for many decades and was run as a landmark winery, Knob Hall Winery, for years. Continue that vision with its 20-acre, professionally managed vineyard, and build on with endless opportunities for expansion. The nearly 6,000-square foot house has enough room to be a residence or charming inn or bed and breakfast, as well as to have a marquis tasting room and lounging area in the airy great room. Use the gorgeous stone patio with its lovely mountain views as an indoor/outdoor dining and drinking area, complete with a fireplace and oven-fired bread and pizza oven. Knob Hall is steeped in history and tradition - the main residence dates back to the 1700s! - with modern amenities from an extensive 2007 renovation. The seven-bedroom, five-bath house was used as both a residence and a vacation rental, with a unique below-grade stone bedroom as its most popular room. Three fireplaces - two of them with gas inserts - and original crown molding make the house cozy and picturesque. The kitchen was designed with a true chef in mind, anchored by an iconic red Aga stove and oven. The wine-makers’ garage, located between the residence and a barn once used for tastings and events, has an upstairs attractive one-bedroom apartment with its own entrance for staff or additional visitors. The vineyard features pinot gris, chambourcin, chardonnay, cabernet franc, merlot, vidal blanc, petit verdot and tramonet, all under the professional care of a well-respected area company. Clear Spring - only a 10-min drive from four-season Whitetail Mountain Resort with skiing, golfing and snow tubing - is nestled in the historic Antietam Valley, rich in Civil War history yet only 20 minutes from bustling Hagerstown. Clear Spring, with its mountain views and access to the Western Maryland Rail Trail, Potomac River and C&O Canal, is waiting to be a destination in and of itself. About 100 miles outside of Washington, DC, this extraordinary property will spring to life as a winery, farm-to-table restaurant, inn, or even a stunning residence with its next steward.
