    Description

    First time offered and a must-see! Fox Shadow Farm is a charming and picturesque secluded property of nearly 140 acres, professionally designed as a horse farm and complemented by cropland and wooded areas which have provided sanctuary for wildlife for nearly thirty years. Located minutes from fine dining and shops in Easton and Denton, within commuting distance of Annapolis, Washington, DC, Baltimore, and Wilmington, and convenient to Delaware+GGs beaches and tax-free shopping, the elegantly and efficiently designed Fox Shadow Farm is a one-of-a-kind property. The house and farm buildings are situated at the end of a meandering pine-wooded lane. This naturally-secure property is bounded by ditches which extend around much of the perimeter of the compound, with an electric gate and guard shack at the entrance. More than a mile of 4-board oak fencing encloses 7 paddocks varying in size from several acres to less than an acre, all with all+-es so that no paddock fencing is shared. The 4,703 sq ft house (built 1991), designed by a prominent Washington, DC, architect, is reminiscent of a typical 19th-century villa-style Eastern Shore country home, and features oak flooring and crown molding, 10-foot ceilings in the original first floor rooms, 4 antique mantels (2 working fireplaces, 2 mantels with decorative function), and a distinctive east-west enfilade which offers a vista running the length of the house to the landscape outside. The first floor includes a center hall, library, living room, dining room, indoor Endless Pool, 1/2 bath, office with private entrance, den, and kitchen leading into the mudroom, enclosed breezeway and 2-car garage. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and an attic. There are ample accommodations for dogs of all sizes; three dog kennels and a large secure chain-link dog run are attached to the house. An additional 10+GGx10+GG kennel is next to the barn. Also in the compound are the barn, 2-bedroom guest or helper+GGs cottage (designed by the same architect), large equipment shed with attached office, full bath, enclosed garage bays, and drive-through overhang suitable for a horse trailer, plus a second enclosed equipment shed, a large 24+GGx18+GG run-in shed, and two small fenced areas with sheds suitable for miniature horses or small livestock. Lightning rods are installed on all the farm buildings, and strategically-placed security lights are positioned throughout the compound. A 16kw generator is located next to the barn. The 108+GGx 36+GG center aisle, 13-stall (12x12) barn features two wash stalls, two heated tack rooms, feed room, 6+GG overhangs, and full loft with cupola ventilation fans. Frost-free hydrants are installed near the paddocks. A large sand ring adjoins the barn, suitable for a future attached indoor arena. A second grass ring, small schooling area, and large riding field lead to the trails which run throughout the property, all wide enough for either riding or driving. The farm+GGs equestrian appointments are suitable for any horse discipline or breeding operation, and formerly the farm was run as a commercial show hunter operation. The farm is in Wicomico Hunt territory. Wildlife throughout the property is abundant; great blue herons, flocks of wild turkey, white-tailed deer, fox, bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, snapping turtles, mallard and wood ducks, and many varieties of songbirds abound. Overhead, swans, snow, and Canada geese are frequent travelers. A reforestation project by contract with the government has established 17 varieties of trees and provides annual payments for as long as the trees stand. Approximately 70 acres of cropland (typically soybeans) also provides annual income. Fox Shadow Farm is a unique and unspoiled income-producing property which provides all the pleasures of country living and the equestrian lifestyle, yet is convenient to urban amenities. Do not enter property without an appointment! Listing agent and homeowner must be present!
