This gorgeous one-of-a-kind home sits on the largest lot in the Cattail Ridge community, located in the highly sought-after Cattail Creek area of Howard County. Nestled at the top of the hill in a quiet cul-de-sac, the lot features a beautifully landscaped lawn and garden, along with mature trees that line the property providing plenty of privacy. The circular driveway provides ample access to the 3-car garage, plus a generous amount of parking space for guests. The driveway is partially tree-lined with an in-ground basketball hoop tucked into the trees, as well as a custom natural archway through the trees leading to the sprawling backyard. When you enter the home into the two-story foyer lit by a chandelier you are first met with an elegant curved staircase and an abundance of natural light. Thanks to an open concept floor plan, clear sight-lines allow you to see the majority of the main floor from the front door. Wood floors flow throughout the entire main floor, except for in the sunken main sitting room which is carpeted. The main sitting room features a gas fireplace with a custom mantle from Europe, as well as floor to ceiling windows which bring in an abundance of natural light and beautiful views of nature. The main sitting room flows into the kitchen, which allows for easy entertaining. The gourmet kitchen is every chefs dream, with granite counter tops, an oversized island with seating so your guests can watch you cook, and a generous amount of cabinets and a walk-in pantry. Enjoy cooking with your gas cooktop, double wall oven and a third oven with speed-cook ability and microwave (Advantium Oven). Two eat-in kitchen areas and a formal dining room provide multiple choices for where to share delicious meals with your family and loved ones. Have a meal on the back deck or perhaps in the screened in gazebo, accessible using the door in the kitchen eat-in area. And, the deck has a staircase allowing access to the lower patio area and the rest of the back yard. On the main floor there is also a formal sitting room, a mudroom, a powder room, and an office. The office has an open flow with the rest of the main floor, but thanks to glass French doors it can also become a private oasis to work in. The office features custom built-ins, great for keeping organized, and a substantial desk area to work on. Head up to the second floor and take in the stunning views of nature from the grand, arched foyer window. The second floor holds 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, including the lavish main master bedroom and bathroom. From the spacious primary master bedroom admire Cattails rolling hills through the windows that line the entire wall of the room.
