Nestled amongst the trees on an Ellicott City hillside down a private drive, this retreat from the maddening crowd is a welcome after a long day at work. Imagine sitting in front of the wood stove watching the snow falling outside! Great room to showcase a Christmas tree. With a fenced yard for the dogs and total seclusion for your children to play, this property location is a breath of fresh air! The kitchen enjoys the traditional window over the sink and flows into the formal dining room. Off the dining room is a wonderful paneled club room complete with wood stove. Three large bedrooms share a huge bathroom with a large linen closet. The lower level enjoys a second wood stove in the large family room and has a bonus room recently used as a bedroom, served by a large, 2nd huge full bath with karge shower. A convenient outside entrance makes the lower level a good candidate for an au pair suite.
