1701 Western Run Road, named Rosedale by its original builders, is truly a one-of-a-kind historic property, perfect for homeowners seeking an idyllic living environment that nourishes the mind, body, and soul. The stone and gable-roofed house was built in two sections. The earliest section of the house was built in 1806 by Jesse and Rebecca Scott and subsequently expanded by Edwin and Eleanor Scott (Jesse Scott’s second cousins) in 1858. With slightly more than 26 acres, the beautifully tranquil country setting is enhanced by several early nineteenth-century buildings on the estate farm. The stone smokehouse was remodeled to be used as a guest house. It is located close to the manor house. And the spring house was converted into a second guest house farther away with its entrance off Western Run Road. Both houses are now rental homes. The current sellers purchased this property in 1995 from another long-time owner who also lived on this handsome estate farm for decades. Before 1995, this was a working farm. Currently, 15 acres are farmed by local residents, helping to keep property taxes reasonable. This estate is one for the purist; it's largely as it was and always has been.
Entering the gracious center hall of the main house, you are immediately impressed by the original wide-width floorboards. These continue throughout the house including bathrooms. The inviting living room is on one side of the center hallway and the dining room with a family room is on the other. You pass through the dining room to reach the spacious kitchen that features a large fireplace and a sunroom off the back of the kitchen. The second floor hosts a large primary bedroom suite with a decorative wood-burning fireplace and three additional bedrooms. The third-floor attic has two rooms. Other features of this magnificent property include the large bank stone barn, a two-car garage attached to the barn, a pond, and two attractive tenant houses. The second tenant house offers two bedrooms and two baths. The property and location are perfect for raising horses or just living life well. Walking the property there are scenic vistas in every direction. When the sun starts to set, that kink in your neck starts to loosen, and relaxation sets in. Although the mailing address is “Cockeysville”, the location is on the way to Butler. It’s hard to believe that you are minutes from Hunt Valley and Interstate 83 with access to everything.
