Like the majority of houses in Carroll County, MD, there is a basement. The finished basement space provides additional square footage that is not included in the 2148 square feet of living space.
Since the winters can be cold and the summers hot, the attached 2-car garage provides relief from the elements, and protects the vehicles parked inside. The additional paved parking pad provides plenty of parking for visitors and family.
Although it can't be seen from the road, there is also a patio to the rear of the house, perfect for relaxing, entertaining, and watching the abundance of area wildlife.
