Monrovia Maryland is a sleepy little unincorporated area of Frederick County that offers a not-quite-country lifestyle with easy access to Urbana, New Market, and Mt. Airy.
4110 Lynn Burke Road in Monrovia was built in an era when homeowners valued space and privacy over the current trend of large houses on tiny lots. This gem of a home has over 2,200 square feet of perfectly finished living space on almost an acre of lush, shaded privacy. Best yet, it’s priced about $100,000 less than brand new homes in the area that sit on much smaller lots. – Offered at $419,900
Wow, talk about a lot of bang for your buck! Why pay $100k more for a house you’ll only use half of when you could have a perfectly sized home with a beautiful fenced backyard perfect for kids, pets, and parents alike? At this price point and with these amazing renovations, you’ll find only townhomes in nearby Urbana or Landsdale. Instead of living side-by-side with neighbors without a bit of privacy, you could have all this indoor and outdoor space at the same price.
This completely renovated split level home has it all – a wide open floor plan with a beautiful kitchen, two and a half bathrooms, four nicely sized bedrooms, lots of natural light, and plenty of living space. All of that with a beautiful lot, too? That’s something you wouldn’t find in a townhome, that’s for sure.
With a townhome, you would get curbside parking, or, at best, a tiny driveway and garage with parking for two or three cars. Guests will have to fight with everyone else to find those precious few visitor spots dotted around the complex.
With Lynn Burke, you get a beautiful driveway through mature trees leading up to your generously-sized two-car garage. You’ll have plenty of parking for your family, as well as your extended family and friends. Social gatherings will be a breeze!
With a townhome, all of your space is vertical which often leaves the entry way feeling cramped. You’ll most likely walk into a small foyer, if you’re lucky, or directly into your living space without a defined entryway.
With Lynn Burke, you’ll walk into a delightfully open split foyer with gleaming hardwood floors, beautiful wrought iron railing, and sight lines to both levels of your home.
Open concept main floor offers those highly sought-after wide open sight lines.
With a townhome, your main living area will be narrow with rooms stacked front-to-back. Often times, the middle of the living area feels darker with light from the front and back windows not quite reaching all the way through.
With Lynn Burke, the open concept main living area floods the entire space with light which creates an open, inviting feel. With the combined rooms, entertaining is a thing of beauty in this completely updated home.
Gorgeous, fully updated kitchen and dining area with access to the back deck.
With a townhome, kitchen space is at a premium. You’ll struggle to find enough storage space and preparing meals will be frustrating with the lack of counter space, as well.
With Lynn Burke, the beautifully updated kitchen has granite countertops with plenty of room for meal preparations. The storage space in this kitchen is to-die-for with cupboards for everything including a generous pantry for storing food, small appliances, serving dishes, and anything else you need. Stainless steel appliances and a beautiful backsplash take this kitchen over the top. The open floor plan also leaves a ton of space to add an island in the center. This kitchen has everything you need and want with plenty of room to grow, too!
Three bedrooms on the main floor with a fourth bedroom downstairs.
With a townhome, all your bedrooms will be on the upper floors. In order to accommodate this layout, the bedrooms are usually small and right on top of each other. Plus, imagine carrying your laundry from the bottom floor to the top floor of a three-level townhome. It’s exhausting just thinking about it!
With Lynn Burke, three generously sized bedrooms are right down the hallway from your main living area. The roomy master suite has its own full bathroom with all the updates you want. A large vanity and lots of light mean you’ll be able to get ready in the morning with total ease. Two additional bedrooms and a nicely updated full bath in the hall round out this floor.
A non-basement kind of basement with tons of natural light and functional space!
With a townhome, you’re often left to wonder what to do with the third floor that’s most often on the bottom level. It’s small with poor lighting, and sometimes it even houses the entry to your home. For that reason, you want it to look pretty, but also have real function.
With Lynn Burke, the amazing bottom floor is truly an expansion of your functional living space. A huge family room downstairs is the perfect place to set up comfy seating for your family’s main hangout spot. The elevation allows for full size windows so you get tons of natural light down here which makes it feel bright and lively, not like your typical basement. A nicely sized fourth bedroom is a nice option for growing teenagers or the perfect location for a guest room with a half bath located on this floor for convenience. A huge laundry room offers tons of storage options, too.
Room for kids to be kids without worrying about the mess.
Families with kids will absolutely love having this level. Imagine your kids having all their friends over for the night where they’ll have access to the family room for a camp-out on the floor, movie night, couch fort building, and all the other fun things kids get into, without making a mess of your main floor. While you’re serenely tucked away in your master suite curled up with a movie or a good book (or hanging out in the upstairs living room so you can keep an ear on what they’re doing), they can make all the noise they want downstairs. This is a fantastic floor plan for families!
Amazing outdoor space with a beautiful deck and a large, fenced backyard.
But the biggest difference between homes in this price point is the outdoor space.
With a townhome, you’ll have a tiny postage stamp-sized yard in the front and back without access between the two unless you’re lucky enough to find an end unit. You’re outdoor activities will be restricted not only by the size but also the lack of privacy. There’s very little room to garden, have pets, or to let your children play outside. Mowing what little grass you’ll have is difficult when you have to circle the entire block with the mower just to get from one yard to the other.
With Lynn Burke, you’ll have everything you need to enjoy an active outdoor life. The large front yard full of mature trees offers lots of shade which helps keep temperatures nice in the summertime, and your house sits back a nice way from the road. The huge, fenced backyard is ideal for families with kids and pets. You can relax on your large deck with stunning wrought iron railing while your kids swing on the swing set and your dog lounges in the sun. Mature trees lining the outskirts of your backyard offer lots of privacy, too. This is the kind of yard you want to live in as much as possible.
Incomparable value for a single family home at this price point in this area.
If you’ve been scouring the market for a single family home on nearly an acre that is move-in ready with all the updates but can’t find anything in your budget, then you simply must check out 4110 Lynn Burke. This home sparkles from top-to-bottom and won’t last long in this quick market.
