Worthington Valley home sells for $3.5 million

With a new addition and dozens of amenities — including space for thousands of bottles of wine — the home at 14123 Mantua Mill Road in Baltimore County stands out.

"Brookfield is one of the most compelling properties in Worthington Valley," said Heidi Krauss of Krauss Real Property Brokerage, the listing agent for the property. "[It is] stellar in every way."

The 122-year-old estate in Glyndon recently sold for $3.5 million. The new owners are enjoying close to 9,000 square feet of living space in the traditional home that sits on nearly 33 acres of land cradled in the rolling hills of Maryland's fox-hunting country.

"The house was in fantastic condition," Krauss said, pointing out that an addition was completed in 2008.

The renovation of the home, she said, "boasts an abundance of artfully executed outdoor lounge spaces." These outbuildings include a cabana/pool house, a guest house, an office/studio and a barn.

Inside the home, which has been constructed of stone and Hardie plank, a teak-paneled great room showcases one of 13 fireplaces, in addition to a copper-topped bar and doors opening onto a spacious deck.

"A restaurateur's professional kitchen [features] a dramatic combination of custom-milled walnut cabinets, and ... granite countertops, [along with] a 2,500-bottle wine cellar," noted Krauss.

A master suite with its own dressing room is one of five bedrooms in the house, along with five full bathrooms and two half-baths. In addition to the kitchen, the main level includes a dining room, living room, family room, den and foyer. Added features and amenities include built-in bookcases, crown molding, granite counters, a steam shower and a fully finished basement.

With its private outdoor terrace and fireplace and wooded parkland and horse trails Krauss calls the home and property a "beautifully realized union of interior and exterior spaces that transcends Napa-style living."
