Located on the still waters of Town Creek in Oxford, Plimhimmon represents two distinct building periods dating from the late 18th and late 19th centuries, the oldest section being erected around 1767. A true gentleman~s farm, the current owners of this two-story home have set the standard for an historic restoration with painstaking detail in restoring the Georgian and Federal features. Incorporating old world craftsmanship, the manor has been brought to modern standards with such improvements as geothermal heating and cooling, elevator service from the basement through the second floor and amenities expected of the waterfront estate market. Sure to please the discerning buyer, Plimhimmon is one of a kind and an irreplaceable cornerstone of Talbot County~s History.Quietly sited on 200 acres at the head of Town Creek, the farm has a dock with approximately four feet of water at mean low tide. Statement trees and an appropriate blend of native landscaping and agriculture set the stage for country living. A waterside guest cottage is sited nearby offering those amenities for extended family and service help if needed. An apartment over the garage, a carriage house renovated to provide studio / office accommodations and a generously proportioned barn compliment the farm providing adequate facilities for the hobby enthusiast and outdoorsman alike.Wildlife and waterfowl abound among this historic staging area. Long respected for migratory waterfowl, this area is known for epic numbers of migrating Canada geese and the natural shorelines provide extensive habitat for shorebirds and ducks. Shoreline buffers and restored wetlands provide a haven for many species of upland game as well as a fifty acre wooded parcel offering a host of opportunities for the naturalist.Located just outside of Oxford, Plimhimmon is twelve miles from Easton / Newnam Field, providing jet service and facilities adequate for private aviation. BWI is within an hour and a half as well as Reagan National putting this farm within reach of the commuter and offering ease of access as a weekend retreat.
