This is the Homeland gem you have been waiting for - first time on the market in 22 years and the current owners have updated almost everything! Elegant 6-bedroom home just a few steps from the Lakes. Walk up the gracious stone path to the main entrance, which is uniquely situated at the west end of the house. You are greeted by a welcoming patio with a striped awning and a covered walkway. Enter into the large, gracious foyer and stair hall. To your right is the enormous living room with French doors to the stone terrace which is along the street side of the house (such a fun twist on the traditional layout). The living room features a fireplace, built-ins and a windowseat. This room is flooded with light. Next, go through the large opening to the formal dining room, which also has a window seat. Conveniently located next to the dining room is the huge butler's pantry with a wall of floor-to-ceiling cupboards on one wall and cabinets and a coffee bar opposite. Then, on to the gourmet kitchen with its high-end appliances, granite countertops, and breakfast bar. From here, either go up a couple of steps to the breakfast room and powder room, or through to the family room which features built-ins and a fireplace. There are four bedrooms and two newly-renovated baths on the second floor. Two more bedrooms and a full bath are on the third floor, as well- as a walk-in attic. The basement is unfinished and has multiple rooms with lots of uses. There is a detached oversize 2-car garage in the lane behind the house, as well a 3-car parking pad. Some of the largest elm trees in Maryland are found at this home, with mature plantings throughout the yard. Lots of grassy space to play, extensive hardscaping, patios - this home will be your oasis. Roland Park school district! Showings by appointment only.
