This contemporary interpretation of colonial architecture has fan-light windows and neo-classic pilasters in the living and dining rooms. This is a big home with many bonus spaces for active families.

The house was constructed about 15 years ago and many of the trees on its quarter-acre lot have grown taller than the rooftop. The area is well-positioned, just 30 minutes from Baltimore and under an hour form Washington. The seller has discounted its original listing price nearly 8% making a good buy even better.
