The immaculate and stunning (real estate agent talk) “piece of American architectural history known as ‘Trout Run’” is waiting for you, according to Realtor.com.
The rustic lodge is hidden away on 450-plus-acres in the Catoctin Mountains in Thurmont, Maryland. The estate was a favorite fishing spot of former U.S. Presidents Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Dwight D. Eisenhower. It’s no wonder why! The property has a 2 mile trout stream that runs through it, plus hunting grounds populated with wild turkey, deer and grouse, along with an Olympic-sized swimming pool and shuffleboard, tennis and basketball courts.
Oh, and the lodge itself isn’t to bad either, if your into that kind of thing.
A total of five separate stone-lined guest quarters can be found throughout the compound, highlighted by the ‘Catoctin Chalet’, a remarkable structure complete with three-story windows that overlook the creek. The buildings include many of the original features and furnishings, such as the ‘Hoover House’ which has an enclosed heated porch with views of the bubbling brook that was used by the then wheelchair-bound President Roosevelt. Another structure, the ‘Yugoslav House’, is a duplicate of Belgrade’s first Parliament building originally designed for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair, while a secluded three-storied abode, said to be a favorite of Amy Eisenhower, features an in-house movie theater.
The historic compound is currently listed for $8.95 million.
