Want a Green Acres Dream Right Next to Park Avenue?
Welcome to 8370 Ball Rd … A 2-Acre Urban Oasis
Just Minutes from Urbana, Maryland
The chores… The stores! Fresh air… Time Square!
Remember the 1960’s show Green Acres? The show with a green-thumbed lawyer and his city-loving debutante wife who had to choose between two worlds – the luxury of city living versus the peace and quiet of country life. Of course, we know by the title of the show how the story turned out.
But if the show were set in 2017 Maryland instead of 1960’s Illinois, there would be no choice at all.
Because right down the road from the vibrant urban action of Urbana is a 3-Bedroom, 3-Bath home on a 2-acre lot that almost deserves its own zip code.
Yet, it’s just a 5-minute drive from Urbana: home of Lockheed Martin and 18,000 thriving businesses and a short drive from the booming, historical epicenter of Frederick, Maryland.
“Land Spreadin’ Out so Far & Wide!”
Just like Oliver Douglas dreamt of green acres and wide spaces when he left his city life behind, you’ll find all the peace and quiet you could imagine here.
Once you walk through the double doors on the rear of the house, you will be blown away by the massive size of the open plan kitchen, dining room and family room area. With so much space to gather, cook, eat and entertain, you’ll forget you’re just a short drive from downtown Frederick.
Instead, you’ll be living life the way you’ve always wanted – making 3-course meals for the family every night or hosting your entire extended family for a Thanksgiving Day feast.
2600 square feet inside, the home has not two…. but THREE levels!
On one side, the dining and kitchen area opens up to a family room. On the other is a large living room– both sides are open and filled with warm, natural light. To complete the main level is another bedroom or home office.
Then, just up four steps and to the right is the first master suite and second bedroom. Instead of a guest room, this home has its own guest level! After all, when you have such a large entertaining area, you know people are going to want to stay awhile?
Head up the stairs again, and you will find a 2nd master suite complete with a double walk-in closet, updated bath with a standing shower and a personal, master-suite rooftop deck.
Can you imagine having coffee on your 3rd floor deck in the morning? The guarantee of complete privacy and 2 acres of land between you and the next neighbor is sure to put your mind (and heart) at ease.
“Dah-ling I love you but give me Park Avenue!”
This home has a spacious layout any country-loving person could enjoy. But did we mention that it was renovated in 2017…from TOP to BOTTOM?
Every square inch of this city hideaway is both spacious and pleasing to the eye?
The main level kitchen is more than just open plan – it’s renovated with Oliver’s debutante wife in mind. Sleek, modern cabinets and a central island add an instant feel of luxury. Meanwhile, granite countertops, a subway tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances give it a 5-star hotel look.
Even Lisa Douglas would be happy cooking in this kitchen, wearing a fur coat and making the finest cocktails for her Manhattan visitors.
Also on the main level are sleek hardwood floors, freshly painted walls and recessed lighting. Ahhh, the finer things in life! Who said living on a large lot of land had to be unrefined?
Imagine hosting a wine and cheese night for your coworkers or friends. People will be peeking into room after room, imagining they were in your shoes and snapping Instagram pictures of themselves next to the exposed brick panels or sipping cocktails on your first floor deck.
It’s the kind of gossip Lisa Douglas would have thrived on.
Plus, with the shops of Urbana just minutes away, she would no doubt have plenty of time to pick up a few gorgeous conversational pieces in Urbana or head down to Westview Promenade in Frederick for some luxury furnishings.
Of course, she wouldn’t miss spending a day at a local spa in Urbana. A host has to look her best, after all.
Or, she could take the train from Frederick into D.C. for a weekend dose of the truly big city life. In a great commuter location, just off Route 355, even the Douglas’s could find some middle ground here. Also, the little Douglas’s would have a heyday at the local schools, which are among the top in the nation.
“I just adore a penthouse view.”
New York penthouses have nothing on the hidden gem of this Frederick home. Just a few steps away from the main entryway is a 19-foot x 17-foot detached studio that is finished from head to toe with fresh paint and plush carpeting.
Want a city feel without that D.C. drive? This is it.
This amazing space gives you the privacy and room to do what your heart desires. Call it a guest den, oversized office or recreation room. Call it what you want, but this space is one that both the Douglas’s would enjoy. Complete with its own heating and cooling systems, it’s a true 4-seasons space.
The Lisa Douglas of your family would find new ways to entertain her socialite friends here. Meanwhile, your family Oliver could create his own word working station or rustic man cave in this added space.
Talk about green acres! This 2-acre lot comes with both added land and added opportunities.
Not to mention everything in this home is brand NEW: new roof, new windows, new flooring, new countertops, decking, appliances and more. When you want to experience old-world peace and Manhattan-like luxury, you can’t get anything better than this.
“Green Acres, We are There!”
If you have been looking for a home that is both unique and completely remodeled with plenty of land just outside Urbana, you have likely been disappointed.
But look no further than 8370 Ball Road!
TOTALLY renovated with all the luxury trimmings, this home also provides more peace and quiet than a country soul could ask for. But, just minutes from both Urbana and Frederick, your vibrant city life is still within reach.
Priced similarly to the larger townhomes of Urbana, this home boasts of a unique floorplan…plus 2 + acres of land… a 3-car detached garage…AND a standalone building that can become anything your heart desires.
Tired of living on top of your neighbor with NO privacy? Experience Park Avenue living with Green Acres dreams.
8370 Ball Road is truly the place to be!
