14 DECATUR AVE, ANNAPOLIS, MD 21403
The quintessential, over-sized Bay Ridge cottage with an open floor plan, classic nooks and crannies, and picture windows that provide charm and interest throughout. Two side entrances give guests a choice of entry - one entrance onto the outside entertainment deck and the other via the side porch access with large windows and skylights. Both entries take you into the first-floor great room with a spacious gourmet kitchen/dining and living area. Proceeding past the kitchen, you enter a separate en-suite bedroom and parlor/office area. The side staircase takes you to the large second floor that houses an open family room with wood burning stove and office nook, a master bedroom suite with walk-in closet and private access to the second floor open deck and a surprising architectural feature - a sleeping bed perfectly centered in the screened porch deck. Continuing upwards, the third floor boasts two dormered bedrooms with walk in closets, a full bath and middle room gathering space. And, most surprisingly, a ladder staircase to the renovated attic studio with 360-degree views of the Bay Ridge area. Oak flooring throughout the top three levels enhances the warmth and sunny nature of the home. A circular staircase curves down to the lower level which houses the second of two laundry areas and a large family room with a decorative fireplace off yet another en-suite bedroom. The large, flat back yard is perfect for cookouts, t-ball or Frisbee games and provides pets a special outside retreat. A separate shed with garage design houses landscaping and sports equipment and a bonus room on the second floor to be used as you choose.
