This stately 4-bedroom home in University Park is a mesh of old and new

Kimberly A. Parker

The home at 3611 Milton Avenue was built in 2009, but it has a distinctly historical appeal. Listing agent Dan Rhodes of Compass calls the home’s design style “Jacobean Manor architecture” in his listing write-up. He said the style is “a twist on the true classical elements.”

“It’s not just your standard English Tudor,” Rhodes said, adding that the home has a traditionally English-looking exterior with some Italian elements like the rounded archways inside.

So if you’re looking for something stately and historic-looking but without the possible challenges of an older home, this four-bedroom, four-bathroom, three-half-bathroom home might be for you.

The home’s foyer boasts tall ceilings, natural light and a formal living room and dining room on either side. There’s a wet bar next to the dining room, an element many hosts will appreciate for the ease it adds to entertaining. If you step a few paces further into the home, you’ll find a striking, winding staircase that leads to the upper level.

The 7,297-square-foot home bears some elements with a historical feel — an elaborate fireplace mantle in the two-level family room, ironwork on the stairway rail and along the upstairs breezeway, plus molding throughout. The home’s family room has a fireplace, plus a built-in bookcase that houses a television.

The space is somewhat open to the kitchen — through large, arched doorways and a wall cutout between the kitchen sink and family room. The kitchen has a center island, plenty of counter space, built-in cabinets along the walls for storage and a contrasting warmer-toned wood cabinet that disguises the refrigerator. There’s a breakfast room set off to one side of the kitchen, accessible from the family room.

The primary suite and a guest suite are on the first level of the home. The primary suite has enough space for a sitting area, plus a bathroom with dual sinks and a separate bathtub and shower — all crafted in warm-toned wood. There is also a study on the downstairs level.

The two remaining bedrooms and two full bathrooms are on the second level. There’s also a playroom with a half-bathroom and an unfinished media room with another half-bathroom, according to the listing.

The home sits on 0.32 acres and has patio space, an outdoor fireplace, grill, refrigerator, ice machine and a half-bathroom for outdoor entertaining. There’s also a detached two-car garage with a full guest suite above.

The home is on the market for $5,500,000.
