Ben Lee Farm Sold for $6.25M by Long & Foster’s Sharon Whaley Tryon

Ben Lee Farm, an over 1,100 acre farm in Church Hill, Maryland, recently sold for $6.25 million. Listed by Sharon Whaley Tryon, a top-producing Realtor at Long & Foster’s Kent Island office, the farm’s sale marks the most expensive land sale in Queen Anne’s County this year and in the past eight years, according to local MLS records.

Beyond its closing price, the sale of Ben Lee Farm marks an important development in the county. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources worked with the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy to purchase the property. On the farm, they will develop a new Wildlife Management Area (WMA), which will protect the land and provide the community with natural recreation opportunities.

“This is one of the most exciting and rewarding property sales on which I’ve worked in my real estate career,” said Tryon, who has been a Realtor in the area for almost 30 years. “Not only does the sale demonstrate our commitment to land conservation and protection of sensitive habitats and endangered wildlife, but also it provides our neighbors and friends here in Queen Anne’s County with more outdoor activities.”

In addition to land sales, Tryon specializes in residential real estate at all price points. This latest sale has been a record-breaker during her time at Long & Foster. Prior to this closing, Tryon sold many charming homes around the Maryland area, including $1 million+ luxury properties. She currently resides in Queen Anne’s County and is passionate in helping people find their perfect home.
