For sale: A look inside the home of ex-Terps football coach Randy Edsall

Former University of Maryland football coach Randy Edsall's loss could be your gain.

The recently fired Terps coach's home in the Howard County community of Maple Lawn — a five-bedroom, 4 1/2-bathroom house overlooking a nearby forest conservation area — is on the market for $975,000.


Set on a lot of just over 6,700 square feet, this 4,500-square-foot Colonial includes a home theater (with projector, remote screen, stadium seating and a wet bar) and a private deck with retractable awning.

It was constructed by Mitchell & Best Homes.

"This home is an entertainer's dream come true, with an oversized deck allowing you to enjoy the beautiful views not often seen throughout Maple Lawn," real estate agent Beth Viscarra, of the Wendy Slaughter Team at RE/MAX 100, wrote in an email.

Edsall was fired in October after going 22-34 in five seasons as the Terps football coach. He purchased the house in May 2011 for $829,440.

The foyer leads directly to the back of the house and its Trex deck; the main level also includes a family room with a coffered ceiling and plenty of windows overlooking the wooded area out back.

The lower level features a recreation room, including the home theater, as well as a bedroom and full bath.

The upper level includes four bedrooms and three full baths, as well as an office area.

Outdoor amenities include plenty of room for parking.

"This home has some unique characteristics, one being the two additional covered parking spaces next to the attached garage," Viscarra writes.

Its location in Maple Lawn, a development in Fulton, offers another strong selling point, Viscarra says.

"The pool, dog park, playgrounds, gym, community center, grocery store, restaurants, shopping and spa all make this neighborhood unique and highly sought after," Viscarra says.
