Desirable spaces: Custom-built contemporary home in Arnold for sale for $674,889

A custom-built contemporary home in an amenity-filled waterfront community in Arnold is on the market for $674,899.

The house, with three levels of living space and an open floor plan, features wood floors and vaulted ceilings. Natural light floods the interior from many large windows, which also offer views of the lush green outdoors.

Listing agent Ted Kinkel described it as "the brightest house I've ever seen," noting that "the whole back is windows." The sloped yard is partly wooded, offering privacy as well as a serene setting.

"It feels like you are going into a vacation home," Kinkel said.

Particularly appealing, he said, is the location of the four-bedroom, 21/2 bathroom home: Convenient to major roads, shopping and entertainment, the house is in Ulmstead Estates, a quiet enclave on the Magothy River. Amenities, for additional fees, include two marinas, a pool that is home to a swim team, tennis courts and a barn that includes a stable as well as party rooms. Utility lines are underground.

Recent updates to the house include a new roof. The front features a covered entry opening into the main floor, where the hardwood floors have been refinished.

The eat-in kitchen features Corian counters and white cabinets that extend to the ceiling to provide ample storage space. Its table space, lined with windows, opens to the backyard. The family room includes built-in cabinets and a wet bar with a refrigerator. The dining room looks out to the landscaped backyard on the 0.35-acre property.

The living room, a few steps up, has a wall of windows with more light pouring in from skylights. Adding to the outdoor feel is a gas fireplace and vaulted wood ceiling with beams.

The bedrooms, two full bathrooms and laundry facilities have their own level several steps up. The master bedroom suite features two closets, one of them a walk-in, and a bathroom with a shower and tub. The other three bedrooms share a bathroom. Two of those bedrooms have double closets, giving them substantial storage space.

The home's basement is unfinished; the house has a two-car attached garage.

The backyard deck is in dappled shade. Landscaping includes flowering trees and shrubs, plus a small pond.
