8 Beds | 5.5 Baths | 3,544 Sq Ft | 1949 Year Built | Sold
UPDATE! OFFERS DUE THIS THURSDAY, MAY 13 AT NOON. A great American home! - It is your turn to write a chapter in the history of this magnificent University Park home; for sale to the public for the first time. This majestic, brick and slate Colonial-style home was custom-built in 1949 in homage to the Federal-style historic Rossborough Inn on the UMD campus. Designed by the prominent local architecture firm Walton and Madden this impressive home features 8 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, 3 fireplaces, an expansive kitchen, wood-paneled den, recreation room, three season porch, screened porch, two car garage and ample storage space. The sun-filled, large scale rooms have tall ceilings and exquisite classically proportioned trim details such as crown molding, chair rails and compound base board. The original oak floors have been freshly refinished and light pours through the professionally cleaned original windows. Room to spread out - There is plenty of room to spread out on the main floor between the generously proportioned living and dining rooms, along with a cozy, wood-paneled den. The kitchen is expansive and features a full-height GE Monogram refrigerator and separate freezer. There are nearly 25 linear feet of counter space and a kitchen island. For gourmets who love gas cooking, a gas line has been run right up to the house to allow for a gas stove. House Facts - The eight bedrooms are distributed very comfortably throughout the house. The main floor features a bedroom with its own full bathroom and a door to the screened porch. Upstairs, the two largest bedrooms are part of a two room suite with a full bathroom that can be closed off from the rest of the house by a set of louvered doors. The largest room has a doorway to a balcony overlooking the landscaped backyard. There are two more bedrooms on this floor which share a full bathroom. Up a flight of stairs to the third floor are two wood-paneled rooms which also share a full bathroom. Additionally, there is a bedroom on the basement level with its own private bathroom. The basement level features a large, wood-paneled recreation room with a wood-burning fireplace. On this level there is also a powder room and large storage space. The sizable utility room features a washer and dryer, built-in cabinets, and a tremendous amount of room for storage. Adjacent to this room is the 22’x20’ two car garage with automatic door openers. Outdoor living at its finest - For those who love outdoor living, this house is on more than a 1/2 acre of land, terraced in a way which provides total privacy in the backyard. Enjoy the outdoors from the screened porch off of the kitchen or the large, enclosed porch with a fireplace and access to a brick patio. Loving maintenance - The home has been lovingly maintained. The current owners installed a dual zoned LENNOX Unico air conditioning system, a Burnham High Efficiency MPO Boiler, 80 gallon water heater and upgraded the electrical system to 200 amps. The original three lifetime Buckingham slate roof received routine maintenance and the exterior shutters were all replaced with factory painted functional wood shutters. Who this house is great for! - Anyone who appreciates exquisite attention to design and craftsmanship. They really don’t make them like this anymore. About the neighborhood - University Park is a highly desirable neighborhood located along the Route One Corridor in Prince Georges County. The impressive tree canopy and visually-appealing, well-maintained houses are trademarks of the neighborhood which maintains a quiet small-town feel while, at the same time, being in easy reach of public transportation, shopping, restaurants and entertainment.
