The Stone Dairy
A T    B U R N S I D E
Owings Mills, Maryland 21117

THE STONE DAIRY occupies a picturesque 2.5-acre expanse of verdant landscaping, once part of the 467-acre estate acquired by Samuel Moor Shoemaker I (1821-1884). Erected in 1906, the original substantial stone edifice served as the bottling facility for Burnside Farms Dairy and has undergone meticulous restoration by the current homeowners for over three decades. One homeowner, a Master Gardener, and the other, a skilled carpenter, have painstakingly preserved and enhanced the building's original charm and craftsmanship.


Constructed from locally quarried stone located a few miles away, the residence features walls ranging from 14 to 16 inches thick, comprised of three tiers of stone. Spanning over 4700 square feet, the home offers spacious rooms providing a cozy setting for gatherings with family and friends. Revel in the updated eat-in Kitchen, a sunlit Sitting Room leading to a side slate terrace, or the inviting ambiance of the candlelit Dining Room, adorned with stone accent walls and warm honey-toned wood floors. The Family Room boasts a soaring original wood beamed ceiling, illuminated by a skylight, with glass paned French doors opening to a brick terrace 
overlooking the pool and expansive gardens.


With four Bedrooms across multiple levels, three Full Bathrooms, and a Powder Room, the residence includes a dedicated space for a home Office or Gym, an upper-level second Kitchen/Bar area for seamless entertaining, and an expansive Living Room encircled by wood-clad sash windows offering tranquil valley views. A grand stone fireplace adorns one wall, complemented by gleaming original wood flooring, culminating in a refined aesthetic. The Primary Suite Bathroom features heated tumbled marble flooring, a custom frameless oversized shower, and a soaking tub set within an atrium-like environment, providing a spa-like retreat.


For gardening enthusiasts, the attached Potting Shed is equipped with running water, ample shelving, and drying racks for flowers. The Workroom Shed, complete with necessary tools and equipment storage, offers a convenient space for repairs and projects. Noteworthy features include an in-ground heated saltwater pool encircled by slate coping stones, a bespoke Poolside Cabana with wood-framed sliding glass doors, a double oak barrel bar, and a relaxing swinging daybed. Admire the diverse garden beds, specimen shrubs, and trees 

while savoring the tranquility of this remarkable setting. 


Truly, an oasis of unparalleled charm and elegance.
