Description

Yorktown Farm holds a very important place in Talbot County+GGs History. It was around 1680 that the young county, which then included the lands between the Chester and Choptank Rivers and East including some of modern Delaware, needed a county seat and 20 acres of land on the banks of Skipton Creek near the village of Longwoods was chosen as the site of Talbot+GGs second town +G+York+G-, and Courthouse. By 1689 a half-mile race track had been built directly in front of the courthouse and was purportedly the first in Maryland. Unfortunately, the by 1707 when the general assembly established Queen Anne+GGs County the site was no longer proximate to the center of Talbot and in 1711 a new courthouse was erected at Pitt+GGs Bridge at the headwaters of the Tred Avon at a place which would become the present town of Easton.Today York enjoys extreme privacy as it is located in the center of nearly 2,000 acres which are privately held by just three landowners. The farm enjoys a mile of waterfront at the mouth of Skipton Creek and the Wye River with deep water, 6+GG MLW, and has very well elevated sandy loam soils. There are a total of five parcels containing 507 +/- acres of which more than 250 are tillable. The lots are platted and perc approved and benefit from grandfathered 100+GG buffers for building.The entry lane winds through a mature forest setting and then past wetland habitats which attract migratory waterfowl before crossing 200 acres of open Class A tillable land on the way to the waterfront. The farm is preserved by a Conservation Easement which allows for four waterfront parcels to be built upon as well as two interior building lots.This unique offering is for one of Talbot County+GGs largest and most pristine waterfront estate parcels. It would make an exceptional family compound, hunting estate or long term hold. Easton Airport is just four miles away and New Carrolton Station is only 55 miles away.
