Designated as 'Avalon' by the Baltimore County Final Landmarks List (No. 228/230), the current owners lovingly renovated the property which includes extensive hardscaping and naturalized landscaping. Winner of the 2008 Historic Landmark Preservation award, this remarkable, one-of-a-kind, secluded, custom built / restored, estate park property is seated high above the Patapsco Valley on top of a granite and quartz cliff, located in the historic Avalon area of southwest Baltimore County. Careful attention was paid to restoring many of the original elements of design to the home speaking to the era, with luxury upgrades that include granite and quartz countertops, tiled floors, stained glass and refinishing of the oak and pine floors. In contrast to the Colonial facade, the interiors showcase beamed high ceilings and Arts and Crafts/Mission detailing, most accomplished using 18th century repurposed materials. Granite steps and an iron gate welcome you to the west-facing main entrance, which overlooks Patapsco Valley for truly stunning sunsets. The delight of nature is constantly present with exotic birds, bald eagles and egrets which accompany the sweeping views of 15,000 acres of protected lands. Surrounded by water on three sides - the Patapsco River in front, and a private stream that wraps around the sides and back - the immediate views and access to the park make this a special retreat - a real nature lover's paradise!The granite and cedar shake 'Main House' includes 3,546 sq ft within two complete finished levels of living space, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a full footprint stone cellar, 2 stone wood burning fireplaces, and an open, unfinished attic.
