However, the Virtual Tour gives you a much better look.

Property Views:

Here are the corner views of the home. Please note the photos are not from the corners of the property, if they were the house would be too small to see the features. The view of the front of the house makes it look like your typical colonial. Once you go around back you begin to appreciate a more contemporary (and comfortable) side of the house.

Wrap-Around, Multi-Tiered Deck
        Main (Top) Level (31' 6" x 13' 7")
        Sun Deck (Lower) Level (16' 1" x 11' 10")

As you walk around back you begin to discover what sets this colonial apart from the others. You pass by the oversized 2-car garage, the large parking pad/youth sports court area and the fresh/crisp landscaping to step across the blue stone patio and up a few steps onto the low maintenance, two tiered, wrap around deck. The deck received the evening shade and is ideal for entertaining friends, family and clients.


Great Room: (Open Floor Plan)

Dining Area:

From the deck there are three entrances into your new home, one via the covered and screened porch, the others through dual sliders that lead to the dinning area of the great room. This comfortable area has been expanded and enhanced with insulated glass, sliders, screens, skylights and hardwood to create bright, almost outdoor, setting that seems to extend your home's living space to the entire 2.1 acres of the property.

Kitchen Area:

Adjacent to the great room's dining area is the gourmet kitchen. This area has also been expanded and enhanced with bow window, custom cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances, huge center island, exceptional pantry/storage space and hardwood.

Kitchen island tools include 5-burner gas cooktop (with downdraft vent), food rinsing sink, butcher's block, wine rack, a breakfast bar, beautiful granite island top and ample storage all around the island. Features around the perimeter are granite counter tops, trash compactor, dishwasher, double stainless steel sink, built in microwave, wall oven, warming bin, extra wide - counter depth refrigerator (with door water/ice dispenser) and still more storage space.

Family Sitting Area:

Finally, adjacent to the great room's dinning area and gourmet kitchen is the family sitting area with brick, wood burning fireplace, cathedral ceiling, large bow window and sharing the skylights with the rest of the room. (A technical note: the darkness of the wall and ceiling on the photo [below right] is due to photograph exposure when the camera adjust to the outside window light. The actual wall and ceiling are not discolored.)

Formal Dining Room: (15' 4" x 15' 1")

Current owners find the combination of the breakfast bar and the informal corner dining area adequate for their needs and converted the formal dining room into a sitting/music room. They punched out the back wall and windows and replaced it with new windows and sliders to the new screened porch that was added with the deck. Needless to say, this can easily become an exquisite formal dining room.

Screened/Covered Porch: (13' 6" x 18' 7")

Approached from either the dining room or from the top tier of the deck is the screened and covered porch. Complete with ceiling fan and protected power outlets, it is the ideal place to just sit out and enjoy nature or enjoying some steamed Chesapeake crustaceans.

Entry Living/Sitting Room: (15' 5" x 15' 2")

This room is just off the main entry hall and is where you would probably choose to meet guests to your home. Two large windows provide ample natural light. The purpose and decor of the room is your choosing.


Master Bedroom: (18' 6" x 15' 6")

I do not want to overuse the word exquisite so I will just say that the master bedroom is really really really nice. Bright and large enough to hold this king sized bed with plenty of room to spare. The fireplace has a gas line running to it and was on the "to do" list to purchase hardware, it has not been used by the current owners.

Overlook Sitting Area: (9' 3" x 9' 6")

Adjacent to the large master bedroom is an adjoining sitting area that overlooks the rear and right side of the property. Just to be clear, these dimensions are NOT includes in the 18' x 15' above. Check out the views below.

2nd Bedroom: (13' 3" x 17' 3")

Large, bright and roomy. This second floor (left front) bedroom is currently painted with a "blue sky horizon" motif, this room awaits your creative design and décor. This room also has an additional small area (4' 4" x 5' 4") that could be a sitting area or small sewing room.


3rd Bedroom: (13' 5" x 11' 11")

This roomy second floor (left rear) bedroom is also currently painted with a "blue sky horizon" motif and awaits your creative design and décor.


4th Bedroom: (11' 3" x 18' 2")

This spacious, main floor (right rear) bedroom is one of two on the entry level.


5th Bedroom: (9' 1" x 14' 9")

This main floor (right front) bedroom is the other entry level bedroom. It shares a full bath with bedroom #4 and together make up the entire right side of the main (entry) level. The combination of the two rooms and full bath is ideal for an in-law or au pair suite.


Lower Level Family Room: (25' 7" x 17' 5")

The lower level family room is fully finished and carpeted. The focus of attention is the large, brick, wood burning fireplace. The room is walkout level, with sliders that step out directly onto a small back patio and your park like setting.


Master Bath: (11' 9" x 5' 0" plus shower width)

A couple of photos of the master bath. This large master bath features excellent natural light from a new, full length "Pella" window. Double shower stall and floor are ceramic tiled. Large bathroom vanity and three section medicine cabinet.
