Sparks colonial is beautiful inside and out

A stately colonial priced at $1.2 million will soon be available in northern Baltimore County's The Preserve at Hunt Valley.

Custom built of stone and fiber cement siding in 2001, this home sits on a little more than two acres and backs into a wooded conservation area. Impeccably landscaped by Pinehurst Landscape Co., the property features a two-level terrace with a stone patio and fire pit. A spacious deck has been recently power-washed and stained.

The property, at 104 Sagewood Court in Sparks, will be available for viewing starting next Sunday.

"This is an amazing property," said listing agent Patti Tizard of Long & Foster Real Estate. "From the moment you open the door, it is just so spacious and open. It just keeps going on and on."

Beyond an exterior stone portico, double doors lead to an elegant, curved staircase. A formal living room and dining room are to the sides of the foyer. The back of the house features a two-story family room, and there is also a sun room, laundry room, kitchen, butler's pantry and an office area with built-in, cherry wood bookcases.

The kitchen on the first level has blue pearl granite counters and windows providing lots of natural light. Appliances include a Jenn-Air six-burner gas cooktop, dishwasher and double convection oven, plus a stainless steel Kitchen Aid refrigerator.

The second level has four bedrooms and four full bathrooms. The master bedroom opens to an adjacent sitting room, gas fireplace and master bath with dual vanities and a Jacuzzi tub.

A finished lower level offers a bedroom with walk-in closet and a separate full bathroom.

Other amenities include a three-car garage, most window treatments, an interior sound system and finished crafts room opening onto the backyard.
