Foreclosure Auction scheduled for 369.55+/- Acre Char Mar Dairy Farm


Ashburn, VA.  January 11, 2018 – On Friday, January 26 at Noon, the Char Mar Dairy Farm, located at 6319 Mountain Church Road, Jefferson, Maryland, will be sold at foreclosure auction.   Located on the western side of Frederick County, this iconic dairy and agricultural property will be sold in three offerings.  The first offering consists of 198.96+/- acres with 144.36 tillable acres and 27.20 pasture acres.  This offering also includes an extensive portfolio of homes and farm related buildings, including a 1,232 SF ranch style home, a 3,430 SF two-story home, milking parlors, milk house, holding area, multiple freestall barns, loose housing barns along with many more structures.  The second offering consists of 152.50+/- acres with 133.29 tillable acres plus additional wooded and farmstead acreage.  This offering includes a 2,916 SF, two-unit home, a bank barn, milk house and additional storage buildings.  The last offering, laying on 18.09+/- acres, includes a 1,904 SF two-story home and 16.91 tillable acres, the ideal “lifestyle farm”.


“Char Mar Dairy Farm enjoys some of the best views and rolling hills this area has to offer,” comments Stephen Karbelk, the owner and auctioneer with Auction Markets, LLC, an Ashburn, VA-based auction house.  “For several generations, the owners built significant improvements on the property as they were running it as a fully operational dairy farm.  Now the next owner will be able to leverage that investment for their agri-business.”


While most of the property is open tillable acreage, there is a conservation easement in place that prevents 95% of the land from being developed.  The current owners sold the development rights to the State of Maryland years ago. 


“While the property is being sold at foreclosure auction, we don’t expect the farmland to be lost to the community.” reflects Mr. Karbelk.  “The next owner will most likely continue to operate an agricultural business so that they can realize the full potential from the land and improvements.”


More details about this auction are available at RealtyMarkets.com.  The property will abe open for inspection on Thursday, January 18 and Friday, January 19 from 10am to 2pm and on Friday, January 26 from 10am to Noon.  Additional open house times may be announced.   Prospective buyers may contact Stephen Karbelk, Auction Markets, LLC at 571-481-1037 or stephen@auctionmarkets.com.
