4 FOREST BLUFF COURT
OWINGS MILLS, Maryland, 21117 $1,224,900
Timeless form rooted in modernity, this spectacular yet comfortably sleek home was designed, inside and out, by Steven Harris, an internationally renowned and award-winning New York architect, professor and author, and his firm. Harris describes his concept for Forest Bluff as ~three sliding boxes.~ Every inch of this home was thoughtfully and geometrically designed with finishes that support the concept. The custom front door sets the stage. Inside, the open floor plan invites in light from a wall of windows shared by the living and dining rooms, as well as from skylights that march along the upper hall and roof line. Comfortable spaces are warmed with custom floating cabinetry, hidden drawers and hardwood floors, balanced with bluestone, glass and metal finishes. The living and entertaining options are endless. Casually dine around an eat-in cook~s kitchen with professional appliances, island, breakfast bar, table space, and of course light from several sources. The adjacent family room is wrapped in custom built-ins and a bluestone fireplace with bench seating. Several rooms have access or views to the cantilevered deck, including the main-level study with pocket doors and two walls of built-in desking to accommodate work and study while enjoying compelling exterior views. Front and back staircases carry you up to the master suite, three other en-suite bedrooms with custom built-ins, and a generously-sized laundry center. The lower level is also bathed in light from window walls and two atrium doors that lead to a walk-out backyard and vegetable garden. Currently, the recreation room and fifth bedroom are being used as an art studio as the natural light in each space is truly inspirational. The light feeding the adjacent exercise room is similarly stimulating. The lower level is completed by a sixth bedroom, a full bath and a flex room. Every room on every level offers natural light above grade, adding value to square footage as well as to the quality of living experience. When you are in these spaces, you know you have encountered something that goes far beyond the standard, center-hall colonial. This home is simply magical!
