The Maryland house belonging to a third-generation descendent of author Edgar Allan Poe is back on the market with a reduced $1.15 million price tag.
The 6,625-square-foot, three-story Flemish bond red brick mansion named “Oakland” has been home to Edgar Poe III (the great-great-great-nephew of the iconic horror writer), and the Poe family home for over 70 years, according to the listing.
The Owings Mills, Maryland, home has been on and off the market since 2009 when it first appeared with a $2.395 million price tag, listing records show. Since then it has undergone several price cuts.
The property was built in 1927 and sits on almost 13 acres of land in Baltimore County’s Greenspring Valley. Features include a grand staircase, a paneled library with wet bar, a formal dining room complete with a crystal chandelier and a breakfast room with tiles covered in paintings of Poe’s famous raven.
The second floor is designed as three suites, each consisting of two bedrooms and a connecting bathroom, while the third floor was last used as an apartment and has an eat-in kitchen, a bathroom and four other rooms. There are a further two bedrooms on the lower level.
The listing agent, Linda Corbin of Sotheby’s International Realty, did not respond immediately to request for comment.
