Those shopping for a home on a large lot may be drawn to a Toll Brothers-built, six-bedroom estate on a full acre in Ellicott City.

"Compared to other luxury properties in the area, it's stunning in every possible detail," said William J. Ganz III of Exit Results Realty, which is listing the property at $1.35 million. "You walk into the home, it's in excellent condition, and it feels like it was just built yesterday.

"Furthermore," Ganz said, "if you're buying this style of home now from Toll Brothers at $1.2 million base price, to get it to look like this one, it would probably cost in excess of another $400,000 for the upgrades, and you'd probably have to wait almost a year to get in."

The 5,641-square-foot house, which is advertised as move in-ready and in excellent condition, features $160,000 in exterior landscaping. This includes floodlights, patio, water fountain, stone walks and an irrigation system. The driveway leads to a pair of two-car garages on opposite sides of the all-brick home, maintaining its Colonial-style symmetry.

"The upgraded, double front-entry door gives a sneak preview of what lies inside this fantastic property," Ganz said.

The home is in the community of Patuxent Chase and features five full baths, two half-baths, entry foyer with dual curved staircases and a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops. The finished basement includes a large bedroom, full bathroom and a dry bar with cabinetry.

Old World detailing is a hallmark of the home and includes custom painting, crown molding, a brick fireplace and wood flooring throughout.

"The beauty flows through every aspect of this home," Ganz said. "A gorgeous courtyard entry is the first taste of it."
