     A multi-zoned jewel in Historic Centreville, Locust Hill is 71.26 acres of prime opportunity! The main farmhouse is a late 18th to early 19th Century Federal-style white clapboard building featuring original details and craftsmanship, with later construction adding more modern updates. The property also features the original milk house, smoke house, dairy barn, gardens, woodlands, wetlands, and 40 acres of tillable farmland. 

     Zoned in two separate tracts with various uses, the potential in this property is immense. The 57-acre Residential tract is the quintessential Eastern Shore Gentleman's Farm, with future development potential. Possibilities could include dense R-3 zoned development or a minor agricultural neighborhood subdivision with 3-4 large lots offering public water and sewer, shared buildings/barns and common areas for horses and other farm uses. 

     The 14 acre Tract, zoned C-3, allows multiple commercial uses. The location, inside Centreville town limits is convenient to enjoy the shops, restaurants and waterfront, all with easy access to 301 and the Bay Bridge!
