Updated: May 27, 2021

I love my job!

Want to know why?

Because I get to see inside houses like this one...

4610 Fordham Rd, College Park, MD, 5 bed, 3 bath, $645,000, Coldwell Banker Realty Listing

As soon as a house hits the market I like to go for an initial tour to see the features and think about who would love the house. This particular listing has no interior photos so I couldn't wait to visit. I'm so glad that I did because it has a fun secret. Read on to find out what it is.

House Facts

Bedroom/bathroom arrangement: Main floor - two bedrooms and full bathroom, Upper floor - two bedrooms and a bathroom , Basement - large room that might be used as a bedroom, one bathroom

Desirable features: hardwood floors, updated kitchen, wood burning fireplace, central air conditioning

Location: right in the heart of the Calvert Hills neighborhood of College Park, minutes from the metro and UMD campus

Extra considerations: make sure to budget for a fresh coat of paint throughout and having the floors refinished

Who this house is great for!

What a great layout for someone looking for two bedrooms upstairs and two separate office spaces on the main floor. Alternatively, the main floor offers single level living with two bedrooms and a full bathrooms.

Did you know?

Certain buyers could qualify for $15,000 in forgivable loans. The City-University Partnership’s Homeownership Program is part of an effort to increase the number of University of Maryland and City of College Park employees living in the City. It provides $15,000, in forgivable loans, to full-time, benefits-eligible University and City employees to become homeowners in the City of College Park–ultimately reducing commutes, strengthening neighborhoods, and supporting our local economy.

So what is the big secret about this house.

Call it a she-shed, studio or backyard retreat...whatever term you use this is a great space for a home office, a recreation room, art studio, a place to meet friends, a home gym or a even private spa. It is an outdoor structure that provides a bit of privacy and draws on its natural environment. Who isn't craving that these days?!
