This sunlit, airy 1920 Cape Cod honors her Craftsman style with modern flair. The enclosed porch entryway, comfortable even on sunny winter days and on the hottest summer mornings, is fully fitted with top-down, bottom-up shades. A custom, solid wood door opens to lovely original hardwoods and wide wood trim. Handsome, half-wall columns divide the living and dining areas and bring the lofty ceilings into perspective. Attention to detail in the renovated kitchen includes replica copper-toned ceiling and cornice, backsplash accents, and a stylish copper fixture over an offset double-bowl sink. Carefully selected cabinetry and hardware coordinate with the wall tile and fixtures. All appliances were purchased within the past 5 years. The primary bedroom offers 1.5 closets and an en suite full of panache, from beautiful cabinets and sparkling fixtures to specially designed hamper cutout and custom shower tile mosaic. A half bath and additional bedroom/study complete the main floor. Upstairs, every inch of space has been claimed to create an inviting family home. Each dormer hosts a room: 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a small office. The first bedroom, looking out over the front yard, includes 2 short closets tucked into the eaves. The back “treehouse” room looks directly into a spectacular maple–priceless view every season of the year! The claw-foot tub and quaint angles in the bathroom delight, and the office is bright and clean. Various small doors open into crawl space storage, making use of every available area! Back downstairs, the unfinished basement includes washer, dryer, and utility sink; 3 windows, an exhaust fan, and an exit door provide light and ventilation. Outside, flowerbeds with southern exposure make the most of Maryland’s climate. The mature maple presides cheerfully over the back yard, casting its ample shade during the hot summer months, but leaving sufficient sun for the raised garden that wants only a little TLC and a gardener to bring it back to life. Regrading of sidewalks and 2-car driveway was completed in 2019, preventing basement water encroachment. Convenient location quite near BWI provides easy access to major interstates and commutes, shopping and dining, schools and hospitals, parks and libraries, yet in a pocket without flyover noise! The BWI trail is just at the end of the street. There is much to love in this quiet, friendly neighborhood!
