Ellicott City home has location and looks

A brick-and-siding Georgian-style home in the Crestwood Estates development of Ellicott City sold last month for $751,000 — $1,000 more than the listing price.

"We had three offers on the house," noted listing agent Bob Lucido of Re/Max Advantage Realty. "If you price it right, you get into a bidding situation, especially if the house is spectacular to begin with. The owners…took a lot of our staging recommendations, and it showed beautifully."

The home's open floor plan, with 4,110 square feet of living space on three finished levels, contains four bedrooms, 41/2 baths and a two-car, side-entry garage.

Soaring ceilings and hardwood flooring define the home's interior, whichincludes a formal living room with bay window, a formal dining room with tray ceiling and French doors that open onto a study. The family room includes a vaulted ceiling and a stacked stone fireplace.

"The floor plan has excitement," said Lucido. "The kitchen is spectacular, one you see in a lot of high-end homes. They upgraded all their appliances — the whole area was a wow statement when you walked in there."

The custom kitchen features ceramic tile floors and backsplash along with stainless-steel appliances, granite counters, wood cabinetry and a center island breakfast bar. A sunroom off the kitchen includes cathedral ceilings and opens to the paver patio that overlooks the terraced garden backing to trees.

The home has a portico-style entrance opening onto a two-story foyer. A dual staircase features a family room overlook. Decorative crown molding, a chair rail, wainscoting and columns are found throughout the interior. The owner's suite includes a sitting area, walk-in closets and dual granite vanities. Drapery rods, drapes and curtains were a selling feature, as was the lower-level rec room, media room and wet bar.

"The home is in a great location," Lucido pointed out. "It sits off of Ilchester Road at the end of a cul-de-sac. Routes 40 and 100 and Interstate 95 are all within six miles."
