Property History
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places due to its late eighteenth century house and bank barn as well as its unique site. Its history is connected with the mills, the town of Chewsville nearby and also with the founding and growth of Hagerstown in western Maryland. Originally, in the mid 18th century the property was a part of some 700 acres, Nancy's Contentment

On May 10, 1768, a land patent was issued to John Rohrer for an 817 acre tract called Nancy’s Contentment. This patent mentioned John Rohrer’s Mill, which is now known as Trovinger Mill. This tract was resurveyed two years later as The Resurvey of Nancy’s Contentment; this resurvey referred to John Rohrer’s Dwelling House. In 1792 the Rohrers, who probably built the 18th century section of the house, sold this property. The little, one-story brick house which was expanded into the present structure may well have been the dwelling house mentioned in the early deed and thus would have been built prior to 1770.
 
Property Description
The historic (circa ~1770) Oxbow Bend Farm, a premium 25-acre 3300+ waterfront footage estate unlike any other, is nestled on three sides by the banks of the Antietam Creek. This farmstead, originally called the Rohrer House Farm, provides a rich blend of history and original with subtle contemporary green sustainability updates. You will have to look closely atop the bank barn to see the extensive low-profile photovoltaic panels or atop the house to find the efficient solar water heating system. The main house boasts four bedrooms, three of which are master suites with 3.5 baths and contains updates made around 1902 and once again in 1999. One of these suites will easily convert into an apartment, au pair or comfortable in-law suite. There is a 3-zone heating and air conditioning system, custom wine cellar with natural stone temperature regulation, two wood burning stoves, a gas fireplace and exposed stone and brick walls throughout. On the main floor there is a gourmet chef~s kitchen, full wet bar with wine chiller, ice maker and dishwasher next to the custom chestnut-framed library and outdoor deck built on the stone foundation. The red, great frame bank barn greets you as you walk across the historic property to the upstream part of the Antietam Creek. Additional buildings include a 2-car garage with outside parking pad for two additional cars, matching shed, an oversized carport, and two converted livestock sheds. There are two fenced-in pastures for the cattle or equestrian aficionados. You can relax with friends in your unique enchanting creek-side gazebo or host parties for your guests in the adjacent field with stunning views of the Antietam Creek. Stroll the 1-mile pathway of your own private trail along the creek or take a day trip and paddle down to the Potomac River past beautiful rural landscapes and the Antietam National Battlefield. This property and homestead are a truly unique must see and explore for the unique buyer. Please don't drive into property without contacting listing agent. Showings by appointment only and will begin May 14th 2020, listing agent to present tour and property.
 
Additional Notes
2 Pastures for horses or cattle, several outbuildings including bank barn and stable, private dock on the Antietam River with pavilion and large adjacent field. Ideal for the historic enthusiast or possible Bed and Breakfast. Conveniently situated ~70 miles from either Baltimore or Washington DC.
