home on a hill

It’s been a few months since we’ve updated you on the beautiful custom home built by the Marr team. This amazing 3,600 square foot Cape Cod was carefully positioned on a spacious lot in Union Bridge, Maryland to maximize the westward view of the Catoctin Mountains and the owner’s privacy. We’ve highlighted some of the most interesting features that you may want to consider when renovating your home or building new construction. This new home features:

  • 3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and 2 half baths
  • 3-car garage connected to the main house via a mudroom
  • Maintenance free exterior comprised of vinyl horizontal single lap siding and vinyl shake siding to create an antique look
