A 5,000-square-foot house in Calvert County has the perfect blend of charm and sophistication. Winding streets leading up to the home showcase open rural spaces before turning into the neatly tucked-away neighborhood of Clairemont.

The brick exterior makes a grand first impression, but the interior is equally impressive and boasts four fireplaces spread out among three beautifully finished levels.

The house includes a detached, heated 32-by-40-foot garage.

Offered at $1,075,000, this Colonial-style home at 2913 Ann Way is three years old and sits on a 1-acre wooded lot in a quiet cul-de-sac.

A whole-house intercom system with a radio and integrated doorbell is one of the many convenient amenities found in the home.

An upscale entry door with sidelights and a transom ensures a sunlit reception area. Adding to the brightness is a Palladian window at the top of the two-story foyer.

This center foyer separates the formal rooms from one another with wide entryways leading into the dining room and living room. Both rooms have two half-moon windows and overlook the front grounds.

The living room is open on two sides. One entry leads from the foyer, and the other, a sculpted, columned open entry, leads toward the rear hall. Across from this second living room opening is a cozy study with double doors and picturesque outdoor scenery through the back windows.

Nearby, a sunroom anchors one end of the house and features a cathedral ceiling, two skylights and a stone floor-to-ceiling wood-burning fireplace. Berber carpeting helps turn the room into a comfortable space in which to relax and enjoy the panoramic wooded views.

Centrally located as the obvious gathering hub for family and guests, the two-story family room also has Berber carpeting and includes a gas fireplace surrounded by black marble.

The spacious family room has columns and flows into the breakfast area of the kitchen, with its ceramic tile floors.

Contemporary light fixtures hang stylishly above the kitchen table and center island. The two-level island doubles as cooktop and a breakfast bar. White appliances include a double oven, ice-maker refrigerator and built-in microwave.

A side door in the kitchen opens to the garage by way of a short walk across the driveway. French doors off the breakfast room open onto a 27-foot-by-16-foot deck that is a perfect private setting for summer entertaining and barbecues.

Two oak staircases lead to the second floor. The first is in the foyer, and the other is on the far end of the kitchen. At the top of the second level is a catwalk that looks down onto the foyer and family room.

Two bedrooms on each side of the hall maximize privacy and space. The master suite and guest room share the same side of the hall. Farther down are two other rooms with a full hall bath between them.

The master suite has a sitting area, fireplace and tray ceilings in the bedroom and bathroom. The master bath is one large open space bordered by a corner tub, his-and-hers sinks, a separate vanity area and a separate shower. A door in the bathroom leads to the walk-in closet with shelves.

Having two bedrooms on the opposite wing is an ideal situation for a family, providing bedrooms for the children and allowing the parents to be close while still enjoying their privacy. Three of the bedrooms are outfitted with ceiling fans.

The finished basement, with above-ground windows, adds to the living space.

The home’s fourth fireplace is in the basement, warming the recreation room. A set of black leather furniture, including a sofa, loveseat and recliner, will convey to the new owners. A table and four chairs also will convey.

A smaller room in the basement has two sets of double doors. This space easily can be used as a hobby room, home theater or play area for children.

The owners have set up an exercise room in the back of the basement. The lower level also comes with a walk-in closet for keeping games and other items neatly organized. Located here, too, are a laundry room and a walk-out exit to the flagstone patio.

The patio, located under the deck, offers a covered area for outside entertaining.

The home features a monitored security system on all three levels as well as outside perimeter security lighting.

To the side of the house, the detached garage has an independent security system. It provides more storage space in its own attic.

Additional features include an automatic irrigation system; satellite, cable and telephone connections throughout; and two-zone heating and cooling.
