All of our homes were named for historic, famous estates. The Hampton Estate began in 1745 when Colonial Charles Ridgely purchased 1,500 acres of land in northern Baltimore County, Maryland. The mansion exemplifies the Federal style, which was prevalent in the late 18th century, and is renowned for its outstanding neoclassical architecture and expansive grounds. This massive Georgian Style mansion was known to have been the largest private residence in the US when completed in 1790.

Captain Charles Ridgely was a wealthy and influential figure in colonial Maryland and built the house between 1783 and 1790. Designed by architect John Ariss, the Hampton House features a symmetrical facade with a central Palladian window and a grand entrance portico supported by Corinthian columns.

The mansion’s interior is equally impressive, with high ceilings, elaborate moldings, and finely crafted woodwork characteristic of the Federal period. The estate’s landscape, designed by famed landscape architect George A. Frederick, encompasses formal gardens, rolling lawns, and a collection of outbuildings, including a dairy, icehouse, and a greenhouse. The estate is also home to the impressive Ridgely Carriage House, showcasing an eclectic mix of architectural styles.

Today, the Hampton National Historic Site preserves the architectural and historical significance of the Hampton Estate. Visitors can explore the mansion, gardens, and outbuildings to understand the early days of the United States and the architectural splendor that defines this iconic Maryland landmark. The Hampton Estate stands as a testament to the rich history and architectural legacy of the region.
