Luxury, elegance and comfort are all words that could accurately describe this grand east-facing colonial sited on a three-acre knoll in the Bateman's Ridge neighborhood, just off historic Strawberry Hill Rd. The home boasts 13 spacious and gracious rooms throughout over 6,000 sq. ft. of living space and two finished levels and an au-pair suite/game room over the garage. No stone was left unturned and the needs of diverse lifestyles were questioned and answered with this 20 year-young estate.
The first floor includes a 26 x 17 sq. ft. open fireplaced living room, a formal 17 x 17 sq. ft. dining room with French doors to the south terrace, a breathtaking 23 x 17 sq. ft. sunroom with a cathedral ceiling and floor-to-ceiling architectural windows and a 18 x 13 sq. ft. home office with custom cabinetry and French doors.

The kitchen flows effortlessly into a welcoming 26 x 20 sq. ft. fireplaced family room with a vaulted cathedral ceiling.
