Farm It Out Feast your eyes on these enormously elegant houses set on lush pastoral property.


Horsin’ Around
Bedroom: 6, Bath: 6/2, Square feet: 7,200

This expansive estate is a fully functional horse farm boasting acres of rolling green fields, a tree-lined driveway and a gorgeous all-white Colonial “main house”—all the trappings of a Southern belle’s paradise. Better still: The agrarian property is in Potomac, home of a “Real Housewives” franchise … so you know you’ve made it. —William F. X. Moody, Washington Fine Properties, 301-983-6400


Rare & Rustic
Bedroom: 2, Bath: 2, Square feet: 1,556

Despite its traditional charm, this 140+ acre Reisterstown farm is fraught with possibility. Whether you were born to run a bed and breakfast or you’ve been meaning to get in on the Maryland microbrewery trend, you’ll find the Amish-style barn easily transformable—and the midsize stone house’s cozy den the perfect place to take a load off. —Carole S. LeVine, Realty Executives Premier, 410-530-7584


Set in Stone
Bedroom: 7, Bath: 5/1, Square feet: 9,354

Built before our nation was even a nation, Cockeysville estate Stone Hall is the height of historic luxury. The sprawling pastoral home (which, incidentally, has its own Wikipedia page) features a manor with six fireplaces, an old-fashioned carriage house, traditional red barn, greenhouse and private stone-trimmed pool. Yep, it rocks. —Heidi Krauss, Krauss Real Property Brokerage, 410-329-9898


On the Waterfront
Bedroom: 4, Bath: 3, Square feet: 3,112

Okay, you caught us: This beautiful Kent Island property isn’t exactly a farmhouse, but it’s certainly giving us farmstead vibes with its barn-like garage, rustic wood cabinetry and small greenhouse—perfect for a miniature yield of kitchen-friendly crops. Oh, and we mentioned it’s on the water, right? —Creig Northrop, Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate, 410-531-0321
