The Perfect Balance of Outside, Inside, and Transition Spaces

Privately located in the Falls Road corridor of Reisterstown, this tidy three-bedroom home strikes the perfect balance between outdoor and indoor living – and everything in between. Take for instance the sunroom that opens from the family room: three walls of casement windows and a vaulted ceiling with skylights make this the perfect all season hangout spot when you want to enjoy the outdoors without extremes in temperature. We can just picture snow falling outside the windows, while a fire crackles in the family room, or a warm spring day with all the windows open to let in the fresh air.

Do you dream of a screened porch on those buggy summer days and evenings? We do. And this is a dream of a porch. Ceiling fans and skylights make it bright and comfortable – perfect for lounging or eating – and in this private setting, it would also make a wonderful sleeping porch. Nestled between these two great rooms is a private deck for sunning or alfresco dining.

Rounding out the pretty much perfect porches is a large, level yard for outdoor play or entertaining.

 

The house itself is not too large and not too small. With formal living and dining rooms there is plenty of space for entertaining, and the family room adjoining the kitchen and sunroom features a unique curved brick fireplace with raised hearth and log storage.

The kitchen features a center island, built in desk, granite countertops and stainless appliances. (The cabinets are somewhat outdated, but paint and new handles would make simple updating very affordable.)

Bonus: Everything, including the three bedrooms and laundry room, is located on one level! But wait, there’s more. The finished lower level is surprisingly spacious, and includes a second brick fireplace and full bath.

New paint and carpet throughout make this home move in ready and perfect for downsizing or small family.
