This enchanting setting, approached by a small curving lane, includes lush gardens, expansive lawns and a charming babbling brook. A large front porch, deck with seating area, and back patio all take advantage of the private views.
2. Back Patio
At an expansive 23 x 17 feet, this covered bluestone patio may very well become your favorite part of the house. Spring, summer and fall, enjoy the splashing of the brook while enjoying the meal prepared on the granite countertops and cooked on the built in gas grill. There’s even a mini-fridge to keep cold drinks handy. Two ceiling fans are appreciated on warm days, while the fireplace adds warmth for cool evenings spent lounging on the couch.
3. One-Level Living
Tired of stairs? Then you will love this home’s layout. Formal living and dining rooms flow into a cozy family room with fireplace adjacent to kitchen and informal dining area. The Master Suite and two bedrooms are down a short hall, and there is even a home office off of the living room. One bedroom upstairs makes for a wonderful private guest room.
4. Unexpected Details
From the front, this looks like a classic Cape Cod, but inside the ceilings are vaulted with two of the dormers serving as skylights for the foyer and dining room, and the third providing a window seat in the upstairs bedroom. The living room features 16-foor ceilings, a large window with curved transom and built-ins with lighted display shelf above.
Located at the end of a private lane off of Garrison Forest Road, this secluded Cape Cod makes you feel as if you are deep in the heart of Hunt Country. The home is under a mile from the Greenspring Valley Hunt Club – close enough to take your personal golf cart to the course if you’re a member. The Irvine Nature Center, with its miles of hiking trails and numerous events is just 6 minutes away. Trader Joes and Wegman’s are both just 7 minutes from the house, and downtown Baltimore is an easy commute via 695 or 83.
