This beautiful 4-bedroom, 4 1/2-bathroom ranch-style home truly impresses. It is situated on more than 25 acres of rolling green countryside filled with wildlife, a gorgeous stream and lots of opportunity for outdoor adventure. The property features large outdoor entertaining spaces with a tiered patio which spans the entire length of the house with multiple areas for entertaining. Included is a custom-built outdoor kitchen and built-in fire pit. It's a great opportunity to enjoy the sunset and the view from the patio and truly feel like it's vacation time. The space is also large enough to accommodate a pool, which would make it the complete retreat. 

Bringing the outdoors inside was an obvious goal of the designers. Anchoring the house, the sun-filled family room has soaring vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. These features extend into the kitchen and dining room. Towering windows allow for abundant natural light, and the view is perfect for spotting wildlife. A stone fireplace reaches to the ceiling in the family room, ideal for a winter day snuggled up in front of the fireplace watching the snow fall through those amazing windows. Warm and inviting, the beautiful wide-plank hickory flooring carries throughout the main living areas of this ranch-style home extending into the kitchen. Within the generous 6,400 square feet, you'll find a gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances including a double-wall oven and Wolf cook top with a pot-filler faucet. Three attached garages and three detached offer plenty of parking for vehicles both on and off road. 

This home is in the town of Myersville, a small, friendly community located just northwest of Frederick in the Middletown Valley. Here you'll find outdoor recreation, parks, Musket Ridge Golf Course, the Appalachian Trail, farmers' markets, endless views and a wonderful community.
