Welcome to Wings and Whitetail Farm. Located off the West Fork of Langford Creek, this 191-acre, historic estate farm has undergone extensive renovations and improvements over the past year. Originally known as Bungay Hill Farm, this brick, Georgian home dates to 1757. The current owners have brought this 5,600 sq. ft., 5-bedroom, 3 full bath, 2 half bath home up to modern standards while maintaining its historic features.
As you enter the home, you'll be drawn to the original, arched door with views towards Bungay Creek. The living room showcases fine craftsmanship with extensive trim and paneling and a fireplace. The den has a wood-burning fireplace, bar with wine and beverage refrigerators, built-in cabinetry, and an updated ½ bath. The dining room features custom molding and a fireplace.

The 3rd floor has 2 more guest rooms with refinished floors and an updated bathroom. You'll love the new, custom built-in bunks in the west bedroom.
Significant, mechanical improvements have been made to the home to make it a more energy efficient primary or vacation home. This includes adding insulation throughout the home, new high capacity well pump, water treatment system with whole house reverse osmosis system, high efficiency propane furnace, and new wiring and piping. The encapsulated basement has new Bilco doors. A central air system was added to the 2nd and 3rd floors along with a mini split in the den.
Main house exterior updates include a 50-year roof with copper flashing, glass front door, new glass on original rear door, lighting fixtures, Hardie plank siding on 3rd floor dormers, shutters and soffits painted, new brick front steps and walkway, and gutters with leaf guards.

New landscaping and hardscaping make this home ideal for entertaining. Updates include a widened and resurfaced circular driveway, new brick and concrete walkways, and expanded patio. Several trees were removed from around the home to showcase its historic beauty. The regraded yard features a drainage system to keep water away from the house and nearby structures. The refinished pool was updated with a heater and converted to salt water. There's also a tennis court.
The original smokehouse for Bungay Hill Farm remains. The side foundation was replaced with brick to maintain its historical charm.
The 1700 sq. ft. caretaker house built in 2013 features new luxury vinyl plank flooring.
The waterfront has a boathouse with new tin roof and 10K boat lift, new 8K boat lift, and boat ramp. The location off the West Fork of Langford Creek provides easy access to the Chester River and Chesapeake Bay.
The farm is a mecca for waterfowl and deer. There are 50 acres of woods, 3 impoundments with wells and water control structures, and 3 ponds (1 stocked). Outbuildings include a WWII torpedo building, pole barn, equipment sheds, kennels, and horse stall barn with additional storage.
