A five-bedroom, 3½-bath home on the market in Crofton, Md., comes with all of the bells and whistles, including a lit

tle something for the man of the house - his own “man cave.”

A sign on the staircase leading to the basement proudly directs visitors to the lower-level haven, which is home to an open game room with a billiards table that will convey to the new owners and a smaller adjacent room with a bar with seating.

The house at 2451 Kemper Road in the Walden community is on the eighth hole of the Walden Golf Club in Crofton. It is on the market for $479,000.

The home has desirable features inside and out, including two bay windows, one above the other, on the front of the house and hardwood floors throughout the entire first level.

The 15-year-old home has been well-maintained and fashionably updated. In addition to hardwood flooring, the living room and dining room have elegant crown molding, and the dining room has chair-rail molding.

The living room is made bright by a sunny bay window, and the adjacent dining room leads to the kitchen.

Highlights of the eat-in kitchen include granite counters, a gas stove and plenty of cabinet space. The kitchen overlooks an open family room, which acts as a gathering hub for family and friends. The sun-drenched family room has upgraded Berber carpeting and a wood-burning fireplace to cozy up by on cold winter nights.

There are sliding glass doors in the kitchen and family room, and both sets of doors lead to a dramatic bilevel deck. This stunning outdoor space has built-in seating and overlooks the lush greens of the golf course directly behind it. The high deck also provides access to the fenced-in yard below.

The bathrooms are spread throughout the home’s three levels and include a main-level powder room with a pedestal sink, two full baths on the top level and the remaining full bath on the lower level.

The master bedroom takes up one end of the upper level and is made even more spacious thanks to a vaulted ceiling and a large, sunny bay window equal in size to the one in the living room. In addition, there are a walk-in closet and a master bath with a soaking tub and separate shower. Each of the remaining three upper-level bedrooms offers a good amount of space; they share a hall bath. The fifth bedroom is in the lower level.

This Anne Arundel County home is within easy commuting distance of Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis.
