Reisterstown home has a bright, open feel

At the end of a long driveway in the Reisterstown development of Chestnut Woods, an all-brick and gabled home sits on 1.75 acres of picturesque landscaping in front of a tranquil wooded area.

With its 6,630 square feet of interior living space, 2609 Chestnut Woods Court is a great home for a family or those who love to entertain.

"The exterior is Colonial, but the interior showcases a contemporary layout," said Michael Schiff, listing agent with Keller Williams Realty Baltimore. "An open-concept design is one of the highlights of the house, where the kitchen and family room space is part of all the action that's going on."

This open layout is found throughout the first level. A pair of Corinthian columns separate a formal living and dining room, creating a perfect space for holiday gatherings and special occasions.

"A sunroom addition has large windows and transoms on all three sides, with glass paneled doors that open to a separate deck," Schiff said. "With large windows in every room, this is a house filled with light."

The home, for sale for $789,900, features five bedrooms and three full bathrooms, while a finished lower level, complete with a second fireplace, offers large, separate areas for recreation.

The interior architectural details begin at the home's entrance with a gracefully curved staircase in the foyer. A den features rich wood built-in bookcases, and tray ceilings can be found in the sunroom and master suite. Ceiling molding is a feature throughout, while the formal dining room also has chair rails.

The eat-in kitchen has a breakfast bar, granite countertops and new stainless appliances.

The rooms were recently painted, and new carpeting was put in to make this home move-in ready.

"All the new owner has to do is unpack," Schiff said.
