Property size: 2,884-square-foot home has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and an attached two-car garage on just under an acre of land in the historic Hampton community.

Unique features: This is the first time in more than a generation that this stone and siding raised ranch with the bright red door has been on the market. The house sits will back from the street and is fronted by a manicured lawn and garden beds. It backs up to a forested area with mature trees.

The setting creates the feeling of an urban oasis though in fact the home is located just minutes from the Baltimore Beltway. An outdoor patio and exposed deck leading from the rear of the house are large enough to host a party, but intimate enough for a couple to sit outside and enjoy the view.

A short set of stairs leads up to the main level. The interior carries elements of the outdoors inside, with two stone fireplace, hardwood and parquet floors, and a stone wall extending up half of one wall of the lower level.

The kitchen’s standout feature is the two-level central island with granite countertops that includes a breakfast bar and a food preparation area with a built-in cooktop. The master bedroom suite has a spacious walk-in closet and a bathroom with a walk-in shower.

The lower level contains an extra room that could be used either as a home office or extra bedroom, plus a workroom that could be fitted for carpentry, sewing, an Etsy business or art-making.
