Located in the small town of Boyds, MD in upper Montgomery County,MD. this property listing truly comes but once in a lifetime, as it has been in my family’s heritage for over 80 years. There is truly no end to the history that has gone through this home. This dwelling, despite signs of aging and the endurance of many years of weather, is rich in history and legacy. Colonel Enoch Totten (famous DC Attorney of Abraham Lincoln era Civil War fame) married a niece of Elias Howe, Mary, inventor of the wondrous sewing machine fortune, Elias Howe and daughter of the Wisconsin Senator, Otis Howe. On their venture over the early westbound B&O Railway, they chose a lovely setting for their elaborate home and named it “Winderbourne” after the sewing machine assembly likewise named “Winder.”
This 3-story Victorian home, originally dating back to 1878, has 12 rooms, a full-length attic, 2 cellars, thirteen (13) distinctive and remarkable architectural features, and encompasses some 5,000+ square feet. In it’s day , no expenses were spared. The grounds include a private (2 gates) 8/10 mile-long driveway that maintains entrance to the 9.3 acre estate. The grounds contain numerous varieties of trees and even some foreign flowering shrubs. The estate is surrounded on all 3 sides by the lovely 500 acre Seneca Lake and on the 4th side by B&O (CSX) Railroad .These lakeside views are the most breath taking anywhere ! There is even a sailboat ramp at the private side of the reservoir There are two daily morning and evening MARC passenger commuter trains that make stops along the DC corridor less than 100 yards from the end of the driveway. The location is central to many suburban and city spots, 35 miles NW of Washington DC. Although in need of major repair and tender loving care (at the purchaser’s discretion), this lovely estate would truly be a unique find to carry on its historic place in time as a private home, a bed and breakfast, or even a town's historic centerpiece. All original window shutters are still protected as well as extra siding. All of the original staircases and doors and framework are still in excellent shape. One’s investment in this property to return it to it’s original prestige and glory is truly unimaginable and the end result would be like owning the likes of Mt. Vernon. I personally know of no other location anywhere that sits by itself and yet offers the most breathtaking views imaginable.It is as if you are going back in time.This truly is a secret location in today's fast paced lifestyle.

Please feel free to contact me anytime if there are any questions and many more pictures are available if so requested.
Thank you

Sincerely,

PACKY
