A handsome Colonial-style home, high up on a hill and overlooking almost 11 full acres, will do triple duty for the right buyer.

Located in Monkton in northern Baltimore County, 15113 Jarrettsville Pike is priced at $750,000 and features three separate living spaces.


"This is a unique property [with] the main house, the in-law suite and a full apartment over a detached garage," said Maureen O'Shea, the listing agent with Long & Foster Real Estate.

Families taking care of elderly parents will enjoy the fully equipped main-level suite, while children returning from college or just starting married life can live in the seclusion of their own quarters.

Five bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms are found in the 4,085-square-foot, three-level home. Hardwood floors are in the dining room, and ceramic tile flooring is in the kitchen and family room, both of which have a fireplace. The other rooms feature carpeting.

Granite countertops and top-of-the-line appliances are in the kitchen. A recreation room and the fifth bedroom make up the lower level.

The home's exterior is made of brick and vinyl siding. A brick porch and patio for entertaining are among O'Shea's favorite places on the property, overlooking "the beautiful pond and waterfall," she said. The lot backs to trees, assuring plenty of privacy.

Amenities in this traditional layout include three kitchens (one in each of the separate living spaces), built-in bookcases, chair railings, crown molding, wainscoting, French doors and 9-foot ceilings, as well as cathedral and tray ceilings. There are also three laundry rooms and a detached garage that fits four to six cars.

Locate among the rolling hills of horse country, it is an easy commute from the 10-year-old home to Towson, Hunt Valley and Bel Air.
