Exquisite architectural detailing creates an atmosphere of absolute luxury throughout the home’s interior spaces. The main level features a breathtaking three-story foyer with marble tile flooring and a stunning staircase. A foodie’s paradise, the gourmet kitchen includes custom wood and glass front cabinetry, granite countertops, decorative tile backsplash, a large island, and sliding glass doors that lead to the backyard. And the elegant dining room features crown molding, beadboard chair railing, and a chandelier with a ceiling medallion—the perfect setting to enjoy the company of family and friends while savoring a delicious meal.
The luxurious ambiance continues on the upper level in the master suite, which features Palladian windows and wall-to-wall carpeting. Double French doors lead to the full bath ensuite with heated flooring, separate marble vanities, a jetted tub, and a separate glass shower. And the fully finished lower level includes an exercise room with an infrared sauna, a full bath, a wet bar, a recreation room, and a wine storage cooler.
The home also features exterior spaces that offer ample opportunities to spend time outdoors, including a lovely landscaped backyard with wrought iron fencing, a gazebo, a heated in-ground pool, an in-ground hot tub, an outdoor kitchen, a detached three-car garage, and an attached three-car garage.
“My clients had been looking for a home along the East Coast during the past year,” says Scott Schuetter, the buyer’s agent for the property. “After I helped their daughter and son-in-law settle into Annapolis, their focus shifted here as well. This home had everything they were seeking. I don’t think the husband even saw the house on the first visit since he sprinted to the six-car garage. The wife smiled as she looked at the beautiful flat yard with pool, hot tub, and gazebo. She whispered in my ear, ‘This is the grandkid magnet.’ They are excited to enjoy their retirement surrounded by family, fun, and everything Annapolis.”

The curb appeal is definitely impressive, so it’s not surprising that the home’s interior spaces are equally beautiful. The kitchen features white cabinetry, high-end stainless steel appliances, a custom banquette for seating, recessed lighting, and ceramic tile flooring. Designed for style and comfort, the living room includes a cozy wood-burning fireplace and hardwood floors. And a lovely deck off the master suite overlooks the highly-coveted community of Murray Hill—offering the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the views. In addition, exquisite detailing, including crown molding and custom built-ins, add a touch of flair throughout the home’s interior spaces, and ample windows provide abundant natural light, creating a warm, cheerful atmosphere.
And, of course, this fairy tale dream home simply wouldn’t be complete without eye-catching exterior features, such as a brick patio, a screened-in porch with a beadboard ceiling and built-in speakers, a lovely perennial garden, and a fenced backyard. The property also includes a detached garage with a ceiling storage system.
“This home has always been one of my absolute favorites in Murray Hill,” says Liz Dooner of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the listing agent for the property. “My husband and I would take evening walks in the neighborhood, and I would regularly comment on its charming character. I was so pleased when I had the opportunity to work with the sellers. They had already moved to Virginia, so we worked together to get the home market ready. Marketing a home is truly a team effort, and we have an amazing team. We had multiple offers, and the home sold quickly.”
