Severna Park stunner features four stories of gracious living

Banking

"Estate" is not a description that should be used indiscriminately — yet the term clearly when referring to the Colonial-style mansion at 1105 Bellevista Court in Severna Park.

Located on nearly one acre in the subdivision of Belleview Estates, this four-story brick home with almost 9,000 square feet of living space was listed at $1,995,900 and sold for $1,850,000. It closed April 30 without ever being formally listed on the market.

"[This was] one of the highest-selling, non-waterfront homes in Anne Arundel County and an example of the positive turn our housing market is taking," said Jennifer Sowers of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, one of two co-listing agents.

Built in 1984, this home was renovated in 2003 and 2004. Craftsmanship spans four finished levels in an interior that includes four bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, family room, personal gym, his and hers offices, 800-bottle wine cellar with a tasting area, and a great room with 23-foot ceilings and 10-foot fir tongue-and-groove wall paneling.

"The bar and billiards area features a custom ... Belgian bar patterned after McGarvey's Saloon in Annapolis with Carrera marble countertops, a beautiful copper-plated tin ceiling and antique mosaic flooring," Sowers said.

The top level of the home features a personal gym with skylights, mirrored walls and audio system with built-in speakers.

Five fireplaces are found throughout the home's traditional layout.

"Even though this house is so large, there is a sense of warmth that drew the buyers in," Sowers said.

Outdoors behind the home, is a large in-ground pool that has a 10-foot diving area, a 10-person hot tub and a beach area. The custom iron and brickwork on the rear of the home is ready for terrace entertaining, complete with an outdoor kitchen and a lower-level pergola that leads to a private garden and sport court.

"When looking up at the home from the pool area, you realize how very big the house really is," said Sowers.

Within the walls of this home with two-story front porches, elegant columns and a circular drive lie a wealth of features that include a breakfast room, butler's pantry, an in-law/au pair suite, chair railings, crown molding, built-in bookcases, a double/dual staircase, a finished attic and a sunroom. Wall-to-wall carpeting, wainscoting and wood flooring are additional amenities.
