A cedar shake and stacked-stone transitional-style home, priced at $625,000, is at 6177 Wooded Run Drive in the Columbia neighborhood of Owen Brown Woods.

This two-level 26-year-old home sits on over a third of a wooded acre. The open interior features four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and a powder room. The house has a two-story marble foyer entrance and a formal living room with skylights, as well as a formal dining room and a second-floor overlook.


The family room, opening to an outdoor deck, has as its centerpiece a stacked-stone fireplace, while a large study leads to a screened-in porch with a cathedral ceiling. The home's kitchen is filled with natural light and equipped with granite countertops, custom wood cabinetry, a large center island, dual dishwashers, double convection wall ovens, an electric cooktop, a washer and dryer, and a separate breakfast area.

A custom-designed lower level has a recreation room, full bathroom, workshop, media room and storage space.

Other amenities in this 3,082-square-foot home include a marble fireplace and vaulted ceiling in the master suite, which has French doors that open to the loft space above the living room. Energy-saving double-pane windows are fitted throughout the home, as are insulated doors. The first level has hardwood floors.

"This is a very affordable house in an outstanding school district and is considered an out-parcel of Columbia without the Columbia Park and Recreation Association fees, which can be a benefit to the buyer," said listing agent Bob Lucido of the Bob Lucido Team of Keller Williams Select Realtors. "In Columbia, a house this size would pay about $1,500 per year in CPRA fees."
