Tired of looking at or living in cookie cutter homes? Take a look at this super energy efficient Acorn Deck house. The 4 bedroom, 3 bath home, which has a 1975 mid-century modern post-and-beam design was built in 1987 by a nuclear engineer who worked in the area. It features beautiful exposed Douglas fir beams and tongue-and-groove vaulted ceilings and is at home in the wooded landscape close to the Battle Creek and the Patuxent River. The company, still in existence as Acorn Deck House, describes the design this way: "Deck House offers an efficient post and beam building system with exposed structure, making a powerful statement of beauty, strength and function. Floor to ceiling glass frames connect with the natural environment to create a feeling of living in the outdoors. Interior spaces flow freely, accented by a rich combination of natural woods. Deck House is a quiet statement about one's own self-confidence - a home of relaxed elegance in perfect harmony with the natural world, inside and out."New roof, new 6 inch gutters, new super energy efficient Geothermal heating and cooling system, new super efficient water heater, new exterior paint, all LED lights,, very good condition, very large split-foyer home has "mid-century modern" style charm and lots of big picture windows. Several decorative concrete patios with a built in fireplace. Large updated kitchen, dining room (or office) and large living room with fireplace and triple sliders opening onto a large composite deck (with retractable cover) overlooking the attractive scenery, which includes a distant, but picturesque, view of the river in the distance. The bathrooms have been nicely updated and one has a skylight. The master bedroom also has a distant view of the river, and another bedroom has a view of the creek around the corner. Finished, walk-out lower level with full bath, bedroom, family room, storage areas, and a wood stove. A huge slider opens to a magnificent half circle concrete deck and well maintained garden area. The home sits up on top of a hill, but on a nice flat 1.79 acres set well back from the street and sided by old growth forest with open river views on the other side. The house is a gem in a very peaceful setting, with a nicely landscaped lot. The newly concrete lap sided detached 2 car garage has newer doors, electric, water, and a metal roof. The attached 2 car garage has newer doors and door openers. Close to the community boat pier and fishing pond. Bring your RV and boat as there is ample parking space off the detached garage and on the asphalt driveway for all your toys. Golf cart friendly too. 100 acres of common old growth timber wilderness area for camping, hiking the trails, fishing in the pond, or hunting for deer and turkey
