Three scenic acres form the setting for a nouveau Southern Colonial design home, built in 1995 for the current owners, who have put it on the market for $599,900.
"When you look out the front door, all you see are evergreen [trees], wood and nature," said Timothy Kenney of Cummings & Co. Realtors, the listing agent for the house at 3832 Nicholson Road in Westminster. "There is a second-floor balcony above the home's front porch columns that offers a phenomenal view of rolling hills."
Behind the brick- and vinyl-sided house, the property consists of a flat, square lot with trees lining the periphery for privacy, while a large circular stone patio, complete with a tree planted in the center for shade, offers hours of sitting, dining and private reflection.
The 4,500-square-foot interior features a traditional layout with a large family room off the eat-in kitchen and a separate formal dining room.
"The [inside] was renovated this year, with a completely new kitchen, granite countertops and all new appliances [with] freshly painted rooms throughout the entire house," Kenney said. "In order to get ready ... to put it on the market, the owners put in close to $35,000 in renovations to make it almost like new."
Four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and a half-bath are perfect for raising a family or entertaining frequently. The owners have done both over the years, while keeping it maintained both indoors and out.
The home has a three-car garage placed horizontally to the exterior elevation. A paved driveway follows an incline from the street. Inside, there is hardwood flooring on two levels and dual staircases to the second level. The sunken family room includes a brick fireplace and opens onto a sun porch. A completely finished basement comes with recessed lighting, a wet bar and a full marble bath.
"The owners have taken loving care of this house, and it is spotless and in move-in condition," said Kenney.
