Property Description

***PRICE REDUCED TO $10M*** Discover the rare gem of Bohemia Manor Farm, a historic estate, vineyard, winery, and event venue in Chesapeake City, Maryland. Situated on 368 acres with over two miles of breathtaking waterfront, the estate boasts a 12,750 sq. ft. Georgian-style brick home, fully renovated guest house, and multiple other buildings, all overlooking the scenic Bohemia River. With a rich history dating back to Augustine Herman, the first Lord of the manor, Bohemia Manor Farm offers the perfect combination of history and modern-day luxury. The exquisite manor home features 11 bedrooms, 9 full and 4 half baths, 10 fireplaces, a grand ballroom, temperature-controlled storage rooms, a basement, four-car garage, and a swimming pool. The Manor home was built by Senator Thomas Bayard in 1920, and restored to its former glory in 2005. Chateau Bu-De Winery & Vineyard, with 30,000 visitors per year and several hundred wine club members, is the crown jewel of the estate. The vineyard, established in 2014, boasts nearly 60,000 vines of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gruner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc, and Pinot Noir, all producing high-quality grapes for award-winning wines. The state-of-the-art 11,500 sq. ft. production facility, 15,000 sq. ft. tasting room with ballroom and entertainment spaces, and a 5,000 sq. ft. storage barn, make this winery a top destination for wine lovers. Upwards of 5,000 cases are produced annually, with 10,000 case capacity custom production tanks and goods storage room. Up to 10,000 case capacity possibly based on current grape production. Bohemia Manor Farm also offers a thriving wedding and event venue business, with events booked into 2024. Food is served on site, and the Tasting Room building includes a full catering kitchen. 346 of the 368 acres are under conservation easement, while 138 acres are leased out to third-party farmers for additional income. With endless growth and business opportunities, this estate offers a chance to run a successful bed and breakfast, possible restaurant, or a short-term rental business that would be complimentary to existing use as event venue (wedding parties/guests are often seeking nearby accommodation). The vineyards can continue to be used for estate wine or bulk sales, or leased to third parties for passive income, while the winery can be maintained or increased, or rented as a custom crush facility to other vineyards in the area. This offering includes many valuable pieces of high-end machinery and equipment, as well as intangible assets such as the trademarks of Bohemia Manor Farm and the name Augustine Herman. Inventory will be sold separately. An additional 69 acres are also available for purchase. Key staff willing to stay on under new ownership. Don’t miss the chance to own a piece of history with established business poised for growth. Additional information upon the execution of a Non-Disclosure Agreement, and provision of verifiable Proof/Source of Funds letter directly from a recognized financial institution.
