Privacy yet not seclusion is yours in this beautifully maintained, single-owner custom house surrounded but not engulfed by almost four acres of mature hardwood trees on the premiere lot of its small, peaceful neighborhood in the heart of the sought-after countryside south of Annapolis. Casual elegance begins in the upgraded, beautifully appointed central kitchen with walk-in pantry and two butler pantries, all with granite and furniture-grade cabinetry, and spills into the adjoining, high ceiling family room and breakfast room, both opening to a brand new composite deck overlooking the back woods. To the other side of the kitchen beyond the foyer and wet bar are a formal dining room with large bay window and living room opening onto the side of a large wrap-around front porch equipped with a swing where many lazy evenings are to be celebrated. On a side-hill setting, the entire two-story house and finished walkout basement is bathed in the light of 50 windows. The upper level contains a large master suite with its own wrap-around seven-window sunroom, cathedral ceiling, lofted closet, and five-piece master bathroom. The guest bedroom and two lesser bedrooms down the hall bookend a spacious, sound-insulated laundry room with sewing nook. The fifth bedroom is on the lower walk-out level and opens by private door to a bluestone patio that also serves the cinema grade $15,000 projection theater with 113” screen and auxiliary remote 90” screen. The ground level area is served by a separate kitchenette. This level is ideal as an office suite (its current use) or in-law suite. The present owners have made over $70,000 in improvements in the past year, including new roof, Renewal by Anderson doors, large new deck, granite fireplace surround and new hardwood floor, concrete area driveway with two turn tabs and walk to an Amish-built tractor shed, and much more. The home offers loads of taken-for-granted amenities too numerous to list, such as radio/intercom and central vac with power dust pans. Behind the house are a quarter mile of owner-built pathways wide enough for a riding mower and leading to, among other things, a fire pit for s’mores and picnics and a stream. A property like this rarely comes onto the market at such an affordable price. Come take a look! Additional pictures coming soon!
