An elegant estate home is for sale in the prestigious and secluded Greystone area of the capital. The home’s spacious kitchen and master suite have been updated.
The five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home sits amidst 2 acres along Greystone Place. The Greystone neighborhood is located just west of Bell Road near Monticello Drive.
“Greystone offers some of the finest homes in the Montgomery area,” said real estate agent Anna Kate Bowen. “Each house sits on 1-5 acres of land. Styles include gorgeous Mediterranean homes, Old World style with panoramic roof designs, and charming Georgian homes. All homes have been custom designed and offer many impressive features inside and out.
Construction at Greystone spans from around 1990 through the 2000s, Bowen added.
“Greystone is a popular location for professionals who work downtown and/or want a convenient address east of Montgomery but still have quick access to the bypass, Bell Road and I-85 for their morning commute,” Bowen said. “Greystone has grand estate homes and classic, impressive architecture with manicured lawns.”
The 4,490 square foot home and property at 6016 Greystone Place is on sale for $890,000. The house was built in 1989.
The kitchen update was spearheaded by internationally renowned interior designer Jimmy Sellars, Bowen said. “The kitchen features a copper hood, stone countertops, Wolf gas range with pot filler, Wolf double ovens, warming drawer and built-in ice maker,” she said, adding that d Other upgrades include a tongue-and-groove wood ceiling, stunning custom cabinetry, Chicago brick backsplash and floors, and custom breakfast bench seating. “The kitchen adjoins a nice side porch to enjoy morning coffee.
The master bathroom has also undergone a thorough update. “And new wood floors have been added to the master suite, guest suite and hallways,” Bowen said.
“It’s hard to find a house that has had a real kitchen renovation. Most homes are just updating countertops and appliances,” Bowen said. “But this renovation has really transformed the space. The owner wanted it to be a space to enjoy with his family on a daily basis, to have fun during the holidays and even to have leisurely breakfasts in the morning. We all spend so much time in the kitchen cooking and entertaining, it’s the best space in your home to invest in.
The interior also includes a fireplace, a spacious guest suite, a second floor bonus room, and an oversized two-car garage with a large laundry room.
Outside, the value of the property is increased by a circular driveway, fresh new landscaping and an irrigation system fed by a private well.
“A house of this quality could not be reproduced for the list price. Today’s construction costs are so high that just finding the perfect site to build on could cost almost a third of that list price,” Bowen said. “If you are looking for a nice home, with a quiet location, and want a neighborhood where all the homes are unique, with some privacy between you and your neighbors, but also want to be convenient to town, schools, shops and restaurants, Greystone is absolutely one of the best options in Montgomery County.”
