Every day cares seem to melt away as a peaceful ease sets in along the serene drive leading through Greenspring Valley Country Club. Set amidst a splendid 14.88 acre estate in prestigious Greenspring Valley, 3120 Golf Course Road was first named “Pen-Y-Bryn.” Purchased as part of three large parcels of land by Katherine W. Baldwin and included in the Maryland Historic Registry, this circa 1930 home was later owned by Henry Hecht who then sold the estate to Jacob W. Slagle in 1953. Built with unsurpassed old world craftsmanship, this extraordinary Georgian Revival stayed in the Slagle family for the next 33 years. On its nearly 15 acres of lush landscaping and parkland, this sumptuous estate offers seamless expansions, exquisite updates and meticulous preservation.
Private & secluded, an estate drive rounds the front of the house, dropping guests at the entry portico leading into the elegant Foyer with onyx fireplace, coffered ceiling & richly paneled walls. Adjoining the Foyer through pocket doors is the formal Living Room full of natural light with a fireplace and two sets of French doors leading to a covered terrace. Across the Foyer, a cozy Library offers built-in shelving, cabinetry and a lovely setting to read while warming next to the fire. Straight through the Foyer, a spacious Sun Room, awash in light sits adjacent a Gallery Hall leading to the formal Dining Room with marble fireplace, Breakfast Room and custom gourmet Kitchen. The large Kitchen flows gracefully through columns to the Family Room with vaulted ceiling, fireplace seating area, enormous box bay window with built-in banquette seating and access to the sunny bluestone Patio flowing to the covered terrace overlooking the pool complex and gardens. An Exercise Room, Butler’s Pantry, Laundry Room, Mud Room and attached 4-car Garage complete the Main Level.
On the Second Level through double doors, the expansive Master Bedroom Suite boasts a large Sitting Room leading to a private rooftop deck, luxurious Spa Bath with custom-fitted Dressing Room and an additional Bath with Steam Room and second Dressing Room. The Bedroom Hall widens to a Study with built-in roll top desks and custom cabinetry accommodating three en-suite Bedrooms. From this hall, guests are treated to a stunning Home Theater, completely custom crafted with Sitting Area, Lobby and ticket booth; a perfect setting for private viewings of blockbusters, both new and old.
Two Bedrooms, two Baths, a Sitting Room and a vintage Linen Room are found on the third floor. The Lower Level offers a large Recreation Room, Billiard Room, Game Room and “Pool House,” featuring two full Baths, a Kitchenette and laundry facilities. From the “Pool House” a curved garden staircase leads to the large heated Pool and surrounding Patios affording abundant entertaining possibilities. State of the Art upgrades & systems coupled with extraordinary craftsmanship and spectacular rolling manicured lawns create a modern yet timeless estate. Potential subdivision.
