After discussions with Preservation Maryland and representatives of Anne Arundel County, the Polm Companies are hopeful they can find a suitable and qualified preservation buyer who would be responsible for the property’s rehabilitation and long term care.
Preservation Maryland’s Executive Director, Nicholas Redding, explained, “We applaud the Polm Companies for agreeing to put the house on the market and find an owner willing to care for the structure. This agreement underscores the value open and honest discussions can have in helping to save important places and we extend our gratitude to Danny and Rick Polm.”
The property, located in Anne Arundel County near Crofton, Maryland, includes the historic 18th century home and 13 acres and will be available to qualified buyers with sympathetic preservation plans starting at $700,000.
In addition to assisting with the facilitation of the sale, Preservation Maryland will also support buyers in navigating the potential preservation incentives available to the new owners.
“We are very pleased with this outcome and hope to find a preservation buyer willing to tackle this project very soon,” explained Danny Polm, Vice President of the Polm Companies, he continued, “We’re proud to be a part of this process and look forward to seeing the next chapter in this house’s history unfold.”
