A circular driveway leads to the main entrance of 8203 Cranwood Court in Stevenson — a home with all the hallmarks of midcentury architectural design. The listing price is $599,000.
The structure of stone, wood and glass sits on a half-acre of wooded property. The abundance of windows brings the outdoors inside, changing the decor with the seasons.
"What strikes me most about this exquisite home is the very livable, contemporary floor plan, with open spaces, soaring ceilings and huge windows," said Long & Foster Real Estate listing agent Ashley Richardson. "Each of the three levels is completely finished, making this home great for entertaining and perfect for today's living."
Within 4,676 square feet of renovated living space, the home's main floor features a foyer, powder room, a dining room that opens onto an outdoor patio, a gourmet kitchen and breakfast room, with marble floors throughout. The home's main staircase leads to an upper-level open living room with a massive stone fireplace as its centerpiece, as well as a beamed cathedral ceiling and hardwood floors.
Five bedrooms and three full bathrooms are also located on the upper level. A stone and marble bathroom and a pair of large closets is found in the master suite.
The home's "lower level is above grade at the family room and den. The family room decor mimics the upper level with contemporary style and [another] stone ¿replace," Richardson said.
There is also space for an in-laws' suite, while, Richardson said, "Each room is heated and cooled with ductless zoned systems — great for keeping out allergens."
Extra amenities include vaulted ceilings; granite countertops in the kitchen; wall-to-wall carpeting in the bedrooms; recessed lighting; French doors; and a deck, balcony, patio and enclosed porch.
