Historic, beautiful & unique Barn from 1810 in Ashton-Sandy Spring, Maryland. Located on an urban farm in a residential suburb with a history that dates back to the early 1700s when Quakers from England settled it.
The barn is an ideal location for photo shoots, video shoots, modeling, music videos, runway shows, art exhibits, field trips, documentaries, etc. Large spaces are very flexible and customizable. The farm next to the barn is active, producing a variety of organic and tasty vegetables and fresh produce. The farm setting provides wide open views of the barn from the south and west.
Barn Dimensions: 60 ft x 40 ft
Ceiling height: 40 ft at the center; 25 ft in the edges.
Several windows provide light from all directions, and a set of panoramic windows facing south are especially popular. They provide the interior with adequate light during the daytime.
The barn has three levels:
A) The main floor is separated into 4 general sections: Mid section (40’ x 16’), East (40’ x 20’), South West (22’ x 20’), and North West: (18’ x 20’) which is divided into 4 chambers.
B) The second floor is accessible by ladder (40’ x 20’) – elevation from the first floor 11’
C) Basement: open basement (with supporting columns). Floor 70% concrete 30% dirt. The basement is where we usually store farming equipment.
CAPACITY: The standing capacity of the barn is well over 100. The seated capacity is 80 (first floor).
Cellular reception in the area is very good; the area is covered by a local cell tower.
ACCESS: The barn is located off New Hampshire Ave (MD Route 650), one of the major routes in Maryland, just 16 miles north of downtown Washington DC, very close to Rockville and Silver Spring.
NEARBY: CVS, 7-Eleven, Sandy Spring Bank, Exxon gas station, and several shops and restaurants are within walking distance of the barn.
A few minutes drive would take you to Olney Village Center’s large shopping area that includes Safeway, Giant, Harris Teeter, 24-Hour CVS, as well as many banks, shops, cafes, restaurants and gas stations.
