A custom-built home in Ellicott City is on the market for $799,900.
Located on more than 4 wooded acres, this modern 6,230-square-foot home has five bedrooms and five full bathrooms. The exterior has red cedar siding, with cedar front steps and deck. An English basement is located to the left of the front entrance.
The first level has an open floor plan, with a family room that has cathedral ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace toward the rear; windows on each side let in natural light and provide views of the natural setting. Oak floors can be found here and in the dining room.
