4311 Clagett Road, University Park - 4 bed, 3.5 bath, $739,000
Rooms to gather and entertain
There is plenty of room to spread out on the main floor between the generously proportioned living and dining rooms, along with a luxurious, wood-paneled family room. The family room was originally a screened porch. A prominent local architect, Ed Wright, designed the enclosed space with a stone exterior, slate floors, cladded beams and exquisitely crafted oak shelves and cabinets. There is a curved wall of windows and sliding-glass doors looking out onto the back yard.
The roomy kitchen is flooded with sunlight and is connected to a cozy breakfast nook with a pantry closet. The dining room features attractive crown molding, chair rails and base board details and is large enough to seat 10 people at a table. Directly adjacent to the dining room is a recent, small addition to the house designed to accommodate a full bathroom with a curbless shower stall.
The basement level features a large, wood-paneled recreation room with stairs leading out to the backyard. On this level there is also a powder room and extra storage space and a laundry room.
Rooms for privacy and reflection
There are three bedrooms on the upper level and the forth is located on the attic level. The large primary bedroom features its own private bathroom and a sitting room with a balcony that looks out on to the splendid back yard. This room is nicely separated from the other two bedrooms by a large landing area with a sunny window flanked by built-in shelves and lower level cabinets. The two other bedrooms on this level share a bathroom. The forth bedroom is up a flight of stairs which opens to a large space loaded with clever built-in drawers, shelves and cabinets.
The lot is larger than most as a portion of the neighboring lot was acquired by the current owners to create a larger yard. There is extensive hardscaping with rich, gray stone work with a fish pond. The garden shed was inspired by the garden house pavilion of the William Paca house in Annapolis. If you are looking for peace and tranquility, the thoughtfully landscaped yard will be your refuge.
