Looking like it could be on a 1950s poster for the American dream, 804 Fairway Drive in Towson is a perfectly proportioned Cape Cod with a sloped roof and gable, a dormer and a spacious front porch.

At 61 years old, it is a traditional-style period classic with a brick exterior and requires no major maintenance.

"When the current owners bought the home, it already had several improvements," said listing agent Ashley Richardson, with Long & Foster Real Estate. "There is a very nice flow to it.

"What I like best about the home is the family room with French doors opening to a large patio and backyard. There is over one-quarter acre with old trees and a lot of privacy."

Priced at $439,900, the home's traditional interior layout is homey and comfortable with hardwood flooring throughout. One of the three bedrooms is on the main level. There is a wood stove in the oversized family room and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room.

Additional features include two full bathrooms and one half-bath. A large eat-in kitchen with granite counters plus a separate dining room are perfect for entertaining. Kitchen appliances include a dishwasher, disposal, front-loading washer and dryer, microwave oven, gas range and oven, and refrigerator.

Special touches such as chair rails, built-in bookcases and recessed lighting are found throughout the house.

"This home is in walking distance from a local park, a school and downtown Towson," Richardson said. "It is extremely convenient to downtown [Baltimore] and Hunt Valley."
