A grand, old estate home in Accokeek nestles within a new planned community, the Preserve at Piscataway. The property offers buyers an unusual opportunity to live in a historic home and have access to modern community amenities. Now on the market for $779,950, this mansion was built in 1725 and rests on 3.34 acres.

The home includes eight bedrooms, four fireplaces, high ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors and architectural columns. Located at 2445 Baileys Pond Road, the home is also known as the Edelen House.

The home has about 5,000 finished square feet of living space and includes parking for 10 cars in the driveway. The home has expansive front and rear porches, and the surrounding land includes a pond. A guesthouse and an office (or studio) are also on the grounds.

The house includes three finished levels with restored hardwood floors and crown moldings. The home has been updated with modern improvements to the roof, the heating system, the water heater and the electrical systems.

The main level has wide-planked hardwood floors in the foyer, which leads into the living room and formal dining room. On one side of the home are a den, kitchen and family room.

The opposite side of the home is essentially an additional home that is attached to the main home and includes another kitchen and living room on the main level. Above this portion of the home are two bedrooms and a full bath.

The second floor (above the main area of the home) has two bedrooms and a den. Adjacent to this area is another wing of the second level, which includes two more bedrooms and a second full bath.

The third level has been completed with two more bedrooms, so that the home has a total of eight bedrooms and two full baths.

Some of the bedrooms feature sloping ceilings, and each bedroom has hardwood floors and tall windows.

Greenvest L.C. is developing the Preserve community that includes several historic properties, including the Edelen House. The community will include 400 acres with nearly 50 percent of the property designated as open space. The new homes are designed to blend with the region’s historic homes with architectural features such as gable roofs and porches. Planned recreational amenities include walking trails, tennis courts and a swim center.
