Get Old School With Former First Lady's $2M Maryland Estate

New, 1 comment

Originally, this Eastern Shore home served as a rural plantation before being snagged in 1929 by Frances F.C. Preston, widow of President Grover Cleveland. With her second husband, the two used the estate as a country home and later tripled its size with a two-and-a-half-story addition. Despite multiple renovations since its construction in 1880, it still maintains many period details, including wide plank floors and deep crown moldings. The listing features five bedrooms and four bathrooms across 5,216-square-feet in the home. The lot spreads across 7.88 acres and includes a seven-foot-deep water pier with slips for seven boats. Other highlights include a swimming pool and beamed ceilings. The asking price is $1,900,000.
