Interior Features
Two laundry set ups. Wine cellar is really an old, walk-in safe. Saunda is inside one of the bathrooms. The walk-in closet is small, maybe 6'x6'. The workshop is in the full basement. About 1/4 of the basement has dirt floors. The house is steam heated, but each room has an individual heater/cooling window unit. Four of the bedrooms have fireplaces, as do the living room, library and dining room.

Views
From its 9 acres hilltop, the house overlooks the Greenspring Valley, about 20 minutes outside of Baltimore, Marlyand. The Greenspring Valley is reknown for the Greenspring Hunt Club (fox hunting), and beautiful estates of the Baltimore elite. It is three minutes from Rainbow Hall, the former home of General Douglass MacArthur, and right next to Villa Pace, the former home of the opera star Rosa Ponsell (who sang with Enrico Caruso). It is located on a street of 5-50 acre estates, only 20 minutes from downtown Baltimore.
