The Oakdale estate in Woodbine, Maryland has a history that dates back to before the founding of the country. The original land was acquired by the ancestors of former Maryland Governor Edwin Warfield in 1766. The current home on 180 acres has parts that date back to 1838 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The main house boasts 12-inch thick brick walls and 12 fireplaces, with 24 rooms and 5.1 baths comprising over 9,500 square feet.
Impressive, original detail and craftsmanship are prominent throughout, and the grand front porch, graced by 18-foot Roman Doric columns, provides a striking view of the property’s fields and woods, bested only by the stunning vista from the rooftop widow’s walk.
An addition to the main residence, Oakdale Hall in 2005 was masterfully designed and artfully integrated and provides an additional 8,870 square feet of space and a superb setting for grand entertaining or concerts.
It is equally well-suited for use as additional residential space, guest rooms, or as a recreation facility along with the adjoining 60×30 pool. Uniquely, in conjunction with the county’s approval for operation of a winery on this property, it would also serve as an ideal site for wine tastings.
The versatile design of this complex might also lend itself to other intriguing potential uses, such as a corporate retreat, meeting site, offices, or wedding venue.
The combined structures are gracefully connected via a 120-foot covered colonnade merging into the main wraparound porch. Together, they encompass 35 rooms, with 16 bedrooms and 10.2 baths, and collectively, with the garage, represent 18,370 square feet of enclosed space, with another 4,460 square feet under roof.
Other outbuildings include the Carriage House and Gardener’s Cottage residences, as well as a brick smokehouse, pond-side gazebo, and tool shed.
Additionally, a large three-level stable supports substantial equestrian endeavors, and farming operations are supplemented by an additional barn, silo, equipment shed, two-acre spring fed pond, and a stream.
