1523 West Joppa Road, gracious and spacious as built in 1915, has evolved into all that today’s discerning buyer both desires and needs for 21st century living. It is one of a handful of distinctive properties on this cherished stretch of West Joppa Road. With space to live, work and play on 2.23 conserved acres, tasteful upgrades and additions are everywhere. Anticipate the relaxation that awaits as you stroll along the 70 foot long front porch. A bright foyer welcomes you in. Your first floor office is just steps away, as are the kitchen and adjacent great room. A charming breakfast room opens to the wrap around porch and has full views south and west. Living and dining rooms are what you would expect – beautifully appointed and ready for either formal or casual gatherings. Ten foot ceilings give you room to exhale. With a generous bedroom and full bath count come options. The expansive owner’s suite offers a luxurious bath, walk in closets and views north, south and east. A second bedroom is ensuite with access to a second story porch for alfresco activities. Two additional second floor bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath. Up to the third floor for three more rooms and an oversized full bath. Three fabulous storage closets complete the space – one used by the current owner as her “wrapping room”. The lower level walkout includes a nanny/in-law suite which can, and does, also serve as a home gym. A den and mudroom complete the finished areas, with abundant storage spaces still remaining. Outside, sweeping grounds have been thoughtfully designed and hardscaped with the aid of Bob Jackson Landscapes. Built in 2005, but anticipating today’s needs, is a two car heated garage with an ultra convenient studio apartment above. Built for flexibility, it can accommodate out of town guests, private yoga instruction, an art studio and so much more. Take a short stroll to the original 3 bay garage with space above and below. So many possibilities. Expand into all this property has to offer – and live happily ever after.
