California Contemporary meets Mid-Century Modern for this sought after home just outside of the 'heart of Urbana' on 4.16 acres.
Escape to Everyday, Resort-Style Living Minutes Away from Urbana in an Excellent Commuter Location
If you have been searching for a unique home on acreage and still want to be near “Urbana,” then you have found paradise at 3530 Big Woods Road in Ijamsville.
This home embodies the concept of California Contemporary meeting mid-century modern style. Popularized at the end of the ‘60s, California Contemporary homes were situated on a wooded lot, had vaulted ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, and expansive windows, as you will find with this property.
Instead of the typical cookie-cutter homes that have gained popularity in recent years, this property provides a private, mature setting just minutes away from those overstacked neighborhoods. Enjoy living on over 4 acres while still being 5 minutes from 270 and the DC Metro Corridor or just 12 minutes to 70 and the Baltimore Corridor.
The home is move-in ready and complete with multiple recent upgrades, including a newer kitchen and bathrooms, fresh paint, a 2-year old oversized 4-car separate garage, recently replaced HVAC, water heater, and water pressure tank as well as a re-stained deck.
And with breathtaking views throughout the home, you’ll wake up every morning thinking you’ve been transported to a mountain lodge where you can ski and sip hot chocolate by the fire.
