Lovingly-Cared For Mature 1-Acre Property with Park-Like Setting
Have you been wondering how you go back in time when people didn’t live on top of each other and had a more peaceful setting in their homes?
You won’t have to wait any longer!
This property is located on a mature 1-acre setting, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity for calm and tranquility. This lovingly-cared for custom home was built in 1984 when patriotism was at an all-time high. Homes were built for functionality, and you weren’t on top of your neighbors.
Reagan had just been re-elected, the Summer Olympics with athletes such as Carl Lewis and Mary Lou Retton took place in Los Angeles, and the Space Shuttle Discovery took its maiden voyage. Chrysler introduced the first vehicles now known as “minivans,” and well-known artists such as Bob Geldof, Phil Collins, and George Michael combined their efforts to form Band Aid to raise money for anti-famine efforts in Ethiopia.
It was also a time when some of the most memorable movies and TV shows were made that are still household names today. Think of racing to the movies to see blockbuster hits like Footloose, Ghostbusters, The Terminator, and The Karate Kid while Miami Vice, Airwolf, Murder She Wrote, and Hunter graced our TV screens for the first time.
The technology we know today was at its infancy as the first Apple MacIntosh was sold. People enjoyed a quieter, simpler life without the constant distractions we see today. It perfectly models the way this home was designed and also features plenty of recent upgrades including a new roof and siding in 2010.
If you have been looking for a home that has the best of both worlds, in a neighborhood, but not overcrowded with neighbors, then you need to check out 5105 Garland Court.
Plenty of Amenities In and Around Ijamsville
Located just 7 miles southeast of Frederick, Ijamsville started out as a mining town then transitioned into agriculture in the mid-1800s. Since then large quantities of land have been sold by farmers to turn it into a primarily residential suburb of the towns of Frederick, Baltimore, and Washington D.C.
Events such as wine festivals are held throughout the year and residents can enjoy unique dining choices year-round. Given the town’s proximity to nearby Frederick, you’re also not far away from other cultural events, antiques, museums, specialty shops, and art galleries.
Just about a mile away, you’ll find the Holly Hills Country Club. Members and guests can partake in a variety of activities due to the club’s 18-hole golf course, swimming pool, tennis courts, a summer camp for kids as well as a clubhouse for indoor gatherings.
The area is home to excellent schools that cover all grade levels. The nearby town of Urbana is rapidly growing and features plenty of new shops and restaurants. You’ll also love the home’s proximity to I-270 and I-70 for great commuter access.
Enjoy a Peaceful, Relaxing Setting from the Rear Deck
For the days when you prefer to stay close to home, you have the ideal setting for peace and relaxation right in your own backyard.
With a 1-acre wooded lot, you have plenty of mature landscaping to enjoy as you sit out on the rear deck. Since the sun sets in front of the house, the deck area stays cool and comfortable, especially for evening cookouts.
Take in the beautiful view with guests and a bottle of wine while you’re waiting for dinner to finish up in the oven. Or, enjoy a romantic night under the stars with loved ones.
Gather Friends & Family with Plenty of Living Space
You won’t run out of room for guests with both living and family rooms on the main floor. Every space is accented by wood trim, and hardwood floors throughout add that special touch to the home.
The living room sits in front of the home, and with abundant windows, you can take in the gorgeous park-like setting outside and enjoy natural light inside.
Curl up in front of the fire in the family room or hang out and watch major sports and TV events with the gang. The brick, gas fireplace offers ambiance even when not lit, especially given the surrounding built-in wood shelving.
It’s also a great room to take in the view with glass French doors that lead out to the rear deck.
Large Kitchen with Multiple Eating Area Options
Gather friends and family for the holidays or special occasions in the expansive separate dining room. Or, seat everyone in the eat-in area of the kitchen so that you can take advantage of the view from the massive bay window.
Extra seating is also available on at the recently upgraded granite countertop that wraps around the 21’ x 11’ kitchen while also providing ample workspace for culinary creations. With all the kitchen appliances upgraded between 2015 and 2016, you can whip up your favorite dishes with ease.
Spacious Owner’s Suite on Upper Level
A spacious 19’ x 14’ master bedroom awaits you on the upper level of the home. This leaves you with plenty of furniture and décor options as well as a quiet oasis after a hectic day at the office. With abundant light pouring in from the windows, you’ll also find it an excellent space for reading or catching up on email.
Numerous upgrades to the adjacent master bath in 2014 include granite and tile to make this the perfect addition to the owner’s suite. You’ll also love the convenience of having a separate tub and standalone shower.
Two nicely-sized additional bedrooms, one with built-in shelving, complete the upper level along with a full bath for family members and guests.
Additional Living Space Option on the Lower Level
Worried about needing additional living space down the road?
No need to worry with the massive unfinished basement on the lower level. Turn it into additional bedrooms, a recreation area, an exercise room or the ultimate home theater.
