Welcome to East Oaks, a National Historic Manor home circa 1829. Built in the Federal period this brick residence with a tranquil setting on 156 acres is located in Montgomery County's Agricultural Reserve. The home is complete with historic details, and an unusually high degree of integrity and sophistication with original moldings, floors, doors and mantels; yet updated for modern living. A two-room guest house built from Seneca red stone; an outdoor pool; and an open gazebo that offers breezes on warm summer days.
The working farm includes two barns with a total of eighteen stalls. The stone bank barn is also a registered historic property; it has 6 foaling stalls. The 2nd barn (originally a dairy barn) has 12 stalls. The 75 foot x 210 foot indoor riding ring comes with a EuroXciser for six horses. There are also two additional small houses on the property, perfect for a farm manager and/or assistants. Additionally, there is an original brick smokehouse (not currently used for smoking); a small frame barn and a machinery shed/corn crib.
East Oaks was originally part of a 3,000 acre plantation called Killmain. Ludwick Young II moved with his family of 10 to the property and was considered a successful farmer introducing new and advanced agricultural techniques to the area. His son, Henry, inherited the farm and built the current home, the guest quarters, the bank barn and other structures. According to historical records, Henry Young owned 10 horses, 7 dairy cows 69 pigs and 33 beef cattle. A variety of grains and vegetables were grown here. For the current owners, horses have been the primary focus; but several acres have been cultivated for organic farm to table produce and raising organic chickens. Many sites on the property have been documented as being a part of the Civil War.
The farm remained in the Young family until 1909; eventually Daniel Callahan Jr (a Riggs Bank executive) purchased it 1942 thru the early 1980s. East Oaks has charm and serenity like never before - you can feel the past melding with the present from the minute you turn onto the meticulously maintained grounds.
