'Charles Hill' A Historic Home at 11700 Old Marlboro Pike

Located in Upper Marlboro on 3 acres and sitting on a knoll setback from Old Marlboro Pike sits Charles Hill. It was built by Rector Pumphrey on land he inherited from his fatner, John Pumphrey who was a large (700 acres) land holder in Prince George County. Rector Pumphrey served as a Justice of the Peace and maintained Charles Hill as a moderate sized producing tobacco and grains.

Always known as Backland in the nineteenth century, Charles Hill is the only known example of this type roofline which had been extended to incorporate an addition. 

Built in the Greek Revival style Charles Hill has beautiful interior detailing from moldings to doorways. A front porch graces the home and the pasture view beyond. The interior needs work and restoration which when done will bring this showcase home back to its original beauty.

Charles Hill is today a prominent landmark on the north side of the very historic Washington-Marlboro Rd.

Charles Hill is being offered at $550,000
