Auctions seem to be the most indispensable way to dispose offbeat and expensive properties around the globe probably because it helps the owner to fetch the highest possible price for their eloquent structures. The Tulip Hill Estate situated in Anne Arundel County, Maryland is yet another concrete beauty with sprawling green front yard which is going to be auctioned on April 10 through Concierge Auctions.
The grand Georgian plantation house is suppose to be one of the hallmark Pre-Revolutionary War historic estates in the USA. It was built by Samuel Galloway for his wife, Ann (Chew) Galloway. The house remained in the possession of Galloway family until 1886 after which it was sold to Henry M. Murray. The central portion of the house was built in 1755-56 and the house was enlarged in 1787-90 by Samuel’s son John Galloway by adding the end wings, hyphens and portico.
The statuesque structure is spread over on a sprawling area of nearly 52 acres which includes water frontage and pier. There is a great historical significance attached to this property, one fact being that in 1771 a thirty-nine-year old George Washington “dined and supped” here twice. The bidding is expected to open at $1.65 million as it was previously priced at $7.5 million.
