Baltimore, MD, US
7300 Brightside Road
Make this stone English Manor style home your own. Built in 1925 and continuously owned by the same family, one of Baltimore's most exciting, incomparable properties is now available for purchase. Located atop a rise at 7300 Brightside Road in Woodbrook/Ruxton, with sweeping views of conservation land and pond, the feel is secluded country, when actually you are minutes from downtown. Customize your own living space in this more than 12,000 square foot estate home. Sprawling across three levels, the blank canvas offered is second to none. A new heating system is already in place and recent updates to this home’s classic gabled Vermont slate roof ensures that it is in good repair for the next owner. This quality of construction would be impossible to duplicate today at this price. The majority of the home has wood floors, much of it hardwood and some pine. Several rooms on the main level have recently had the floors refinished, including the grand entry foyer, which is absolutely beautiful. Architectural details such as elaborate and extensive molding throughout, wood built-in bookcases, French doors between rooms, seven fireplaces and mellowed marble tiles in the vestibule and first floor sun room are things you don’t find every day. Architect designed plans are available that demonstrate how to reconfigure the two enormous kitchens into a kitchen/family room set up reflects today’s lifestyles. There are also plans that show combining smaller bedrooms into larger suites with updated bathrooms that current buyers desire.
A grand main staircase connects the first two levels, and two additional staircases connect all three floors. The third floor is a dream waiting to happen. High gabled ceilings, and bedrooms with fireplaces bring to mind the classic story The Little Princess that featured a transformed attic space. This extraordinary property also includes a separate indoor sports court with wood floor, and “viewing gallery” with brick floor and fireplace. There is also a totally remodeled guesthouse connected to the main house through a courtyard and carport, yet totally separate with a living/dining area, kitchen, one bedroom and full bath.
