Superlative adjectives are everywhere in property listings. They cease to retain their meaning. If you tire of their ubiquity, let this property simply be described as The One. ***** Everything about this 80-acre country estate reveals its bespoke origin. Parcels in the Maryland countryside were scoured for a decade before this specific grouping was chosen and assembled. Absolute privacy was paramount, leading to a home that is invisible from the road. At almost 600’ high in the Belfast Valley, the views are arresting. They are without equal in this region – they are limitless. From the flower gardens right outside your doors - cultivated to attract certain species of butterflies - through the majesty of the Greco-Roman fountain - quenching the thirst of native birds – through the endless topography of gently rolling hills - in every color of sun-kissed green – in all directions – lies a veritable feast for your senses. You have never seen a vista this far-reaching, heard nature this deeply, or consumed the beauty of Maryland’s countryside quite like this. That’s why this property is called Grandview. (It is almost inconceivable that access to I-83 is less than three minutes away.) ***** The selection of the land was just the beginning of the curation process. Every aspect of the 9,000 square foot main home was custom-made. The region’s very best builder was brought to bear. The region’s best contractors, the best interior designers. Every cubic foot of this home was imagined with the most maniacal attention to detail, gathering the most lavish and exotic of materials from all corners of the world, and calling for the most creative inspiration and execution of the skilled craftsmen and artisans assembled - all to construct what is nothing short of a masterpiece. It is a fortress completely enshrouded in unique, absolute one-of-one luxury. And from its perch atop the grandest, natural spectacle in the Sparks countryside, a most profound sense of peace is yours. **** The property includes the ability to subdivide. It includes a charming Cottage (2BR/2BA, approx. 2,000 SF) for overflow family and friends and a Tenant House (3BR/2BA, approx. 2,000 SF) that is currently home to caretakers of the property. It includes a Barn Complex, with ample room for grand entertainment … or farm use … or all of the above. How you choose to enjoy this property is bounded only by your imagination. If you’re looking for more than your ‘typical’ lovely Maryland estate - if you’re looking to transcend adjectives - this is The One.
