**Buyers, do not drive down the private drive without an appointment** Maryland's Local Brokerage proudly presents The Christian Royer House, a historic property with a rich history dating back to around 1827. Originally this iconic Carroll County property served as the home of Christian Royer and his large family while also functioning as a meeting house for the Church of the Brethren. Due to its historical significance, it was added to the National Historic Registry in 1979, recognizing its importance in preserving the cultural heritage of Carroll County. In 2015, the property was purchased and later received Conditional Use approval to operate as a Country Inn and Event Venue. Since then, it has been functioning as a multi-event venue, country inn operator , and Air B&B offering a unique and unmatched experience in Carroll County. The main house, which has been well-maintained, offers the charm and character of a home built in the early 19th century. Some of its original features, like the integral brick bread ovens and cooling porches, add to the property's appeal and historical ambiance. This home is the perfect setting to continue operating as a venue or as a primary residence. The kitchen has been updated to modern standards with ample storage and an additional pantry. The main level rooms are spacious with tall ceilings and fireplaces adorn every room. Upstairs, find a primary suite with an ensuite bathroom, sleeping porch with a Juliette balcony and two sets of stairs- one to the kitchen and one to the walkup attic that could easily convert into a massive closet or home office. Four additional bedrooms complete the upper level. The basement has gorgeous brick floors, a wine cellar/ bar room, a rec room area with wood stove, unfinished storage space including the laundry and a back screened in porch overlooking the pond with a hot tub that will convey. In addition to the main house, the property also includes a log cabin from the 1700's, completely renovated in 2019 and equipped with a kitchen, dining area, gathering room with woodstove, bedroom, and full bath. This property has been operating as a successful Air B & B and the business from this property will be passed along to the new owner so they can benefit from the successful track record and 5 star reviews on the site bringing in 40-50k/ year in revenue without being rented as much as possible. Other amenities include a functioning greenhouse, wisteria draped pergolas, a large party pavilion with electric, a pond with a fountain and extensive landscaping including a mature sugar maple tree lined drive up to the property, making it an ideal setting for a personal retreat or incredible property to host from. It is your turn to own a piece of rich history and fall in love with creating your own chapter here. Set on over 4 acres the property is surrounded by farmland that has already been placed in Ag preserve so it will not be developed in the future. *500 MB High-Speed Fiber Optic Internet available this Fall!
