They don’t build 'em like they used to.
The 6-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom house and nearby 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom in-law house at 9900 Timberknoll Lane was built in 1765; nearly 250 years later, it's on the market.
Listed by Remax Central Atlantic, the stone, Georgian style “Historic Manor,” also has eight fireplaces, a necessity in the days before forced air heating. Of course, the house has been updated to include heat, central air conditioning and a host of other amenities including a whirlpool, security system and stainless steel appliances.
It retains some of its 18th Century charm, however, with wood-burning fireplaces, built-in shelving and hardwood floors throughout.
The 7,100 square-foot, $1.25 million house sits on a 3.32 acre lot in the Font Hill neighborhood of Ellicott City.
