Dreaming of a unique home with craftsman wood interiors? No other home is like this one! We know because this is a custom built Salt Box designed by the original owner. Built with love, attention to details, using reclaimed barn siding, premium grades of wood for the ceilings, posts, beams and flooring. If you love wood and craftsmanship, you will love the interior of this home. Located in a prestigious community in Fulton and sitting on one of the most breathtaking lots within the neighborhood. The home is centered on the 1.15 acre lot and has beautiful views from all sides. The rear view looks out over the gently rolling hillside and ends at the stream/creek that runs along the eastern perimeter. Mature trees are majestically encompassing the lot and add to the beauty of the natural setting. Nature is abundant and you can enjoy it particularly from the side deck with spectacular views. Looking down on the 3 sides of the lot you can enjoy the peaceful setting on your built in swing. The brick front porch is cozy for watching the western sunsets. Step inside and you will feel that you have entered a luxurious cabin. The wood beamed cathedral ceiling opens to the second story balcony. Oversized brick fireplace with wood mantle centers the room. There is a hidden built in door to the left that is a pass through from the garage for firewood. In the corner is a raised platformed library with storage underneath. Gleaming wooden floors throughout the home. Hand made stair rails are another sign of the craftsman detailing. Wooden stairs leading up to the 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The owners suite is oversized with dual double closets and plenty of extra area perfect for a lounge. The center bedroom has it's own charming details including a window seat, electric fireplace and built ins. The 3rd bedroom has character and detailing as well and all the rooms have windows looking out the rear of the home. Gaze at the serene views of the trees and rolling grassy knoll. Back to the main level, when you leave the great room there is a first floor family room in the rear with bar and half bath. The side door enters this room from the 1 car garage. Barn door in the paneled wall is an original from a real barn, and it is access to the pantry. Off the family room is the big country kitchen. The current owners left the original design in tact with hand made cabinetry but added a movable center island that will convey. Breakfast nook in the back of the kitchen and the door to the deck is on the side. The formal dining room is off the kitchen to the front of the home with box molding panels. Currently the dining room is set up as a huge office. A convenient way to use the space if you chose not to have a formal set up. In the basement there are built ins, hidden accesses in the knotty wood paneled walls. More than half of the space is finished. The other portion that is unfinished has plenty of storage space, laundry area including the washer and dryer, the interior oil tank, the HVAC system and a exit door with stairs out to the backyard. There are NO WINDOWS in the basement. The original owner had a bathroom installed but it has not been used by the current owner. There is a shed and a small dog kennel in the backyard. Minutes to JHUAPL, downtown Columbia or short ride to NSA/Ft Meade, I95 and ICC. You can live in your own paradise with a country setting and be only a short drive to either Baltimore or Washington. Howard County has numerous accesses to the reservoir so with a permit from WSSC you could kayak or fish. Plenty of parks and recreational areas are close by. Don't miss this chance to own a custom built Salt Box in Beaufort Park. There certainly are no others like this lovely home.
