Boasting elegant exterior features that immediately catch the eye, including a four-sided wraparound porch, a lovely front courtyard with a brick walkway, antique carriage lamps, and a beautiful three-tiered fountain, this three-level southern colonial is absolutely delightful—exuding the charm and character that embodies historic Maryland. The property, which was listed on October 10, 2017, closed on February 22, 2018.
As guests step inside the home, they are greeted by an impressive two-story foyer with an elegant Georgian-style chandelier and gleaming oak flooring. A sight to behold, the dramatic great room features exquisite architectural detailing, including a soaring cathedral ceiling adorned with eight-inch dentil crown molding and a Palladian half-round transom window. Ideal for entertaining, this beautifully designed space also includes a cozy wood-burning fireplace and French doors that lead to the rear porch overlooking the private, serene woods.
Preparing meals is an absolute delight in the elegant, well-appointed gourmet chef’s kitchen with glass-fronted custom maple cabinetry, sleek granite countertops, decorative tile backsplash, high-end appliances, an entertainer’s island, a walk-in pantry, a dumbwaiter to a second pantry, Italian porcelain tile flooring, and access to the deck. Beveled glass French doors lead to the dining room, which is adorned with exquisite moldings and offers a lovely setting for enjoying a meal with family and friends.
Clearly designed for relaxation, the master suite, conveniently located on the main level, is a peaceful retreat—complete with a cozy wood-burning fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and a spa-like master bath with a dual sink vanity, a soaking tub, a separate shower, two walk-in closets, and a linen closet. Indeed, this space is an ideal escape—a private oasis that offers all the comforts associated with home.
The upper level features two-bedroom suites—each with an en-suite bath, a dressing room, and a walk-in closet. An additional bedroom suite with a full bath and a private exterior door is located on the lower level, which also includes a media room, an exercise room, and a climate-controlled wine cellar. Additional conveniences include an under-home two-car garage with built-in cabinetry and ample under-porch storage space.
“The moment I saw this home, I knew it was a special property,” says Moe Vaziri of Northrop Realty, A Foster Company, the listing agent for the property. “The exterior with its fountain and large wraparound porch evokes southern, old-style charm. The interior maintains that same classic Southern flavor but with all of today’s modern amenities.”
