13027 Beaver Dam Road, where two centuries collide to deliver a magnificent residence that sits upon 20 acres of natural beauty! The original home, a repurposed stone grist mill built in 1899, has a 2006 addition designed by Lawrence Link, Architect and Home Designer. Impossible to match the character of the original home, the addition depicts a contemporary and modern flair of the 21st century. The almost 6,000 square foot dwelling has four bedrooms, two full baths and two half baths. The separate cottage or guest quarters has an additional full bath, kitchenette, living room, bedroom, upper level deck and stone patio. The home’s two-story entryway will capture your attention as a bridge from the old to the new with exposed stone interior, wood ceiling, 8x8 ceramic tile floors, and windows nearly top to bottom. Proceed to the home’s contemporary addition and pass between a half bath and sizable laundry/pantry with an abundance of cabinet space. The space opens to a spectacular combination kitchen, dining and living room. Appreciate the wood ceiling and beams which visually separate the kitchen and dining from the living room. Eclectic design, the textures and warm brown colors of the wood in the kitchen are a beautiful contrast to the sleek silver of the stainless steel. A sense of warmth and peace can be felt in the living area with the cathedral ceiling, big windows and views of the outdoor sanctuary that surrounds the residence. The Scandinavian wood burning fireplace is a stunning feature and heating power-horse for the open floor plan. Return to the entryway and step back in time to the original home with hardwood floors throughout, original exposed beams and a fresh coat of paint on the plaster walls. The Butler’s pantry and living space the original structure affords are updated and charming without losing the original character of 18th century living. Access the second level from the original stairway or a grand stairway in the foyer. Find three bedrooms and an updated full bath in the original home. The owner's suite is in the addition. It is an open room with a cathedral ceiling and direct views of the moon and the stars at night through the vast windows. A personal retreat, the impressive primary bath has a large double vanity sink with enviable cabinetry, walk-in shower with bench and double shower heads, and separate water closet. The walk-through closet will not disappoint and returns you from the bathroom to the second level landing area. Adventure and respite from daily life await beyond the home’s interior. From enchanted stone-walled gardens where something is always in bloom to the pergola covered stamped concrete patio with stone wall surrounding, the outside features are unmatched. With twenty acres to explore you will find a path to a creek and wood surrounds that create a private and serene way of life. The additional structures on the property include a rustic feed station used for wood, a barn with access to electricity, a divine grotto to enjoy, an old stone outhouse ideal for storage, and a cottage/guest house. A convenient location in Baltimore County, located near Hunt Valley Towne Centre and thriving business centers, Oregon Ridge Park and Nature Center, and minutes to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. This home is one of a kind and offers a healthy balance of elegance, efficiency and simple beauty. This is a must see!!
