Single Family Homes
Spectacular porch-front colonial with detached two-car garage in the highly coveted upper Church Road community of Historic Ellicott City. This impressive and significantly improved home is part of an intimate enclave of homes known as The Vineyards. A stately entrance introduces the grouping which includes a historic residence that was H.L. Menkins’ summer home and three custom homes built by well-known local builder Michael Pfau of Trinity Homes. The current owners made this house their home shortly after its construction and have spent their time designing, refining, and updating nearly every inch. There is a new kitchen with granite counters, a stone tile backsplash, and stainless appliances that flows freely into a handsome family room with a gas fireplace, stone facade, and built-in bookcases. There is also a banquet-sized dining room and an impressive covered rear porch with tree-top views. There are new and updated bathrooms including a re-imagined primary bathroom with trendy, ship-lap walls, 36’ vanities, a glass-enclosed shower, and detailed tile work. There is a clear focus on quality, gathering, and entertainment throughout the home and a trim package that stands out. An enviable finished basement features a theater room with a tray ceiling, an incredible wet bar with built-in shelving, and a great guest bedroom or in-law suite with a full bathroom. Added highlights and features include mostly maintenance-free Hardi-plank siding, natural gas for heating, cooking, and backup power with a full house generator, customized storage, and closet systems, an oversized garage with built-in shelving, and impressive exterior landscaping. A beautiful home that is tucked away yet only a short walk to the State Park and old town Ellicott City.
