Situated in Crofton, one of Anne Arundel County’s most charming towns, boasting tree-lined streets and a family-friendly atmosphere, is a four-bedroom, brick-front Colonial home on the market for $635,000.

The house sits on a premium corner lot and backs to a golf course in the Tiers of Walden subdivision. It has a stately exterior with a two-car attached garage and tons of windows.

Hardwood flooring shines in the foyer and can be found throughout the main level, including the staircase. The center-hall floor plan features a study on one side of the foyer and the living room on the opposite side.

The study has French doors that can be closed off for working or reading in privacy. Across the foyer, the formal living room offers a great place for conversation and entertaining. It has a wide entryway leading directly into the formal dining room behind it.

Both rooms have detailed decorative molding. The dining room also has chair-rail molding and a rich mahogany accent wall. Dining room guests have the added benefit of a picturesque wooded view out of the rear window.

Nearby is a large kitchen and breakfast room that opens into the two-story family room. The kitchen has a center island with room for two or three stools. There also is plenty of counter and cabinet space.

The rear portion of the home is especially well-lit during the day, with plenty of natural sunshine gleaming through. The breakfast room has sliding glass doors that lead onto a large entertaining deck. In addition to the wood deck, the backyard also has a hot tub and is bordered by mature trees.

Back indoors, the only separation between the breakfast room and the 19-by-15-foot family room is a knee wall, which helps create one large space to enjoy.

The two-story family room is the highlight of the home and a central gathering spot for friends and family. It has two walls of two-story windows and an overlook from the second-floor sitting loft. The centerpiece of the room is a marble fireplace with a mantle to cozy up near on chilly evenings.

A nicely decorated power room with a pedestal sink rounds out the first level.

There are four bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the second floor. All of the upper-level rooms have plush off-white carpeting.

The sunny master suite boasts a cathedral ceiling with a trendy ceiling fan and light fixture and a walk-in closet.

White ceramic tile flooring offers a great contrast to the pale green walls in the private master bath. The bathroom is decked out with a generously sized soaking tub, a double-sink vanity and oversized windows.

The remaining bedrooms also are nicely sized and share a hall bathroom with a double sink.

Golf course and swimming pool memberships are available in this amenity-filled Walden community. Additional community features include a clubhouse, common grounds, jogging and walking paths, tennis courts and playgrounds.
