In the Lutherville development of Mayfair, 1 Seaberry Court is a traditional Colonial-style home. The interior, however, is designed for a modern, minimalist lifestyle.
"This home has a current, versatile [floor plan] that features an open design in the casual areas, but also includes the formal adult entertaining areas of the living room and dining room," said listing agent Diane Donohue of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. "People love the flow from the living room to the office and from the breakfast [room] to the vaulted family room with skylights. It has such a great feel."
The home, with five bedrooms and 31/2 bathrooms, also boasts a spacious, walk-out basement level. This level has separate media and recreation rooms, along with a bright kitchen, a large bedroom and a full bathroom, making it a good in-law apartment.
"The owners put so much extra into the house," Donohue said. "There is a redesigned kitchen twice the size of any in the Mayfair neighborhood, with an 8-foot island. The kids actually did their homework there while [the owner] was cooking."
Additional upgrades to the kitchen include refinished cabinets, granite countertops and stainless-steel Jenn-Air and GE appliances. The owners also installed new hardwood flooring on the first and second levels, as well as in the two-story foyer. They replaced the roof and added skylights, finished the garage and built a private backyard patio with a stone waterfall.
Other amenities are a six-panel front door and full side windows, double-hung windows with fan transoms, wainscoting and chair rails throughout the main level, a wood-burning fireplace in the family room, plantation shutters, custom draperies, built-in bookcases and ceramic baths.
"This is a wonderful location in a family-friendly, cul-de-sac community that is minutes to everything, including shopping, restaurants and Interstate 83 and the Baltimore Beltway," said Donohue.
