Tranquil privacy with expansive outdoor living & entertaining space. Tucked into a natural park setting, sitting above the Patapsco River within walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Historic Old Ellicott City, sits this stunning Victorian home with a wrap-around porch and mature landscaping. The nearly one-acre property features a beautiful pool and spa, outdoor kitchen and wood burning pizza oven, creating the perfect outdoor oasis. Inside, you will find casually elegant oak floors milled from the trees cleared from the home’s lot, custom-crafted mahogany built-ins and pocket doors in the formal living room/library and an originally-designed fireplace in the family room, both built by local furniture maker, Shlomi Abukassis. The kitchen is equipped with a new, Blue Star range and gorgeous copper hood. Upstairs, retreat to the master bedroom and spa bath, or work from home in the huge office with a wood burning stove. The finished lower level includes a wet bar and additional gathering space with easy access to the pool, along with a full bath and bedroom for total guest privacy. Dogs will love the sprawling, fenced-in yard and separate run. The clapboard siding is freshly painted, and the roof was replaced last year. The large, two-plus car, two-story garage provides abundant storage, but there is also an ample attic and basement storeroom, in addition to large closets throughout the home. This beautiful home in the quaint village of Oella offers authenticity and architectural detail. Owners enjoy feeling far away from all of the hustle and bustle of life, yet a short walk to historic Main Street, or bike ride to the local markets and restaurants in Catonsville. The Trolley Trail connects this beautiful, hilly area to both communities and you are a 15 minute drive to BWI airport, 20 minutes to Baltimore or 45 to DC.
