Enter the beautiful foyer with its Brazilian Mesquite hardwood floors and views of the skylights and the vaulted ceilings of the living room and dining room. The sunny and welcoming living room and dining room have plenty of space for entertaining or just relaxing. The kitchen features beautiful updates, including granite countertops, white cabinets, gas cooking, under-counter lighting, and quiet dishwasher. The kitchen window and slider overlook the spacious deck and stunning backyard with the flora and fauna of the Middle Patuxent Conservation Area immediately beyond. Open sightlines from the kitchen to the family room make entertaining and supervising family activities easy. The family room features a gas fireplace and walkouts to both the rear and side yards. Enjoy relaxing in the family room while observing the beautiful views of nature outside your sliding glass doors. Two additional large rooms with an attached full bath on the main level could provide generous space for multi-generational living. But the rooms also make ideal spaces to work and/or school from home, excellent space for a home-based business, craft space or playroom -- or a separate space for a live-in nanny. The main level is completed by a mudroom/laundry room leading from the garage to the interior of the home. Upstairs, the master suite overlooks the rear of the home. The recently (2019) renovated master bath with its freestanding tub overlooking the trees of the Conservation Area makes the perfect place to relax after a long day! The separate shower and calm decor will make this master bath your favorite retreat. Three more generously-sized bedrooms and a hall bath complete the upstairs. The lower level of the home features plenty of storage space and a large recreation room with a kitchenette and generous built-ins. With the rec room's walkout to the backyard, it is ideal for exercising, parties or big game day celebrations. For the nature lover, the gardens and large yard surrounding this home will be a source of joy. Multiple paved trailheads into the Middle Patuxent Conservation Area can be found within a couple blocks of this home, opening up wilderness adventures in/along the rocky creeks and dense woods, along with opportunities to observe wildlife in their natural habitat via miles of paved and unpaved trails. The rear multi-story deck features a pergola covered in wisteria, providing fragrance with its Springtime blossoms and a shady cooling effect for the deck during the warmer summer months. A hidden shed under the deck provides a great space for storing extra gardening tools. The over-sized side-entrance two-car garage has plenty of additional storage. Updates include: New furnace and a/c 2016, gas range 2019, dishwasher 2019, architectural shingle roof 2012, paint 2020, carpet 2020 -- and more! Don't miss this beauty; it may bring a new definition to the word "Paradise" - home!
