Open Sunday, August 14th 1-3. In the lovely & well-located neighborhood of Stevenson in Greenspring Valley, this expanded cottage-style home (4-5 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths) is situated on a 4.6 acre partially wooded professionally landscaped lot, with detached 4 car barn-style garage. Enter via the tree-lined lighted driveway with a cobblestone-bordered front court around a center island with multi-stemmed birch tree. Wide stone walkways, fine landscaping, & up-lighting on many trees give a gracious feel to this area. Built in 1982, this home underwent a full renovation in 2008 doubling its size, & incorporated high-end interior, exterior & landscaping materials, a new driveway & walkways and a 3 zone energy saving geothermal HVAC system. The remaining windows, garage and original baths were more recently renovated.
The entrance foyer flows to the living room (with wood burning fireplace & custom cabinetry), dining room (with tray ceiling, gas fireplace & hidden closet housing A/V technology), and a guest bedroom currently used as an office with private bath (jetted tub & separate shower) and large closet. A den/library adjacent to the living room leads to the primary bedroom suite featuring 2 walk-in closets, a make-up area alcove & the primary bath with a double shower & dual sinks set in custom cabinetry.
The centrally located kitchen features a large, 2-level center island with limestone countertops, 2 large pantries with French doors, farm sink w/instant hot & vegetable sink each w/disposals, gas 5 burner cooktop, additional 2 drawer refrigerator, dual wall ovens w/convection & warming drawer, 2 dishwashers and microwave. Extensive custom cabinetry is by Rojahn. Beyond is the breakfast room w/inlaid mahogany wood flooring, an adjacent charming bar room w/custom cabinetry, compass rose inlaid in floor, wine refrigerator & cathedral ceiling, each looking out to the ipe deck and backyard. The family room is graced with a tray ceiling, custom cabinetry and open gas fireplace with stone surround & hearth. Nearby is a delightful 400 sq. ft. screened porch w/a soaring ceiling, which also gives access to a 600 sq. ft. ipe deck w/propane hook-up for grilling off the bar area. A double stair leads to the lower level hardscape & backyard. Off the kitchen is a combination pantry/office, laundry room & mudroom w/2 closets leading to the side entrance porch.
The upper level has 2 spacious bedrooms (one with custom cabinetry & an attached sleeping room) each with 2 closets and sharing a full bathroom renovated in 2011. Separate finished and unfinished storage rooms, and a large linen closet provide generous storage.
The lower level features 3 large finished rooms (w/closets, ample windows & sunlight), which open to grade level through 3 sets of French doors. Includes a full bathroom (with dual sinks and steam shower), 2 very large unfinished storage rooms, one having a double window & potential as a bedroom or wine room. One closet is pre-constructed for a washer/dryer unit. Area outside the lower level and underneath the deck & screened porch features blue stone bordered cement decking with columns & an attached pergola. There is ample room for a swimming pool off the lower level in the large backyard...a bird lover's delight w/many species represented. Property backs to a 45 acre parcel providing even more privacy! The detached renovated 4 car barn-style garage had a new roof, garage & entry doors, windows & cupula installed in 2013.
All this with Stevenson Village shopping a short walk down the road and Greenspring Station, 695 and I83 within a 5-6 minute drive. Easy commute to BWI airport.
Note: HVAC is an efficient 3 zone geothermal system featuring Water Furnace "Envision" geothermal heat exchange and blower equipment (with humidifier) installed by Total Energy in 2008. 3rd zone is split for more refined temperature control. A forest conservation easement exists and is noted on plat.
