Making Memories in Bowie Colonial


Byline: Carisa Chappell, SPECIAL TO THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Rows of windows decoratively line the front of this home, inviting sunshine to flow freely throughout the four-bedroom Colonial on Jennings Mill Drive in Bowie.

The house was built in 2000 in the Collington Station community and offers many well-appointed features and amenities. It is being offered at $495,000.

Close to shopping and recreation, the neighborhood has its own community clubhouse with a swimming pool and tennis courts. The neighborhood also has walking paths, tot lots and is close to shopping and dining establishments.

The new owners will take delight in a mature plum tree in the front yard. Sidelights and a transom border the front door, which opens into the gracious foyer.

A fan light fixture and recessed lights accent the ceiling. Windows and sliding glass doors offer a family room view of the deck and well-manicured back yard.

The deck is bordered by several strategically placed trees and shrubs to help ensure privacy. Stairs on the deck lead down into the yard. The owners say they enjoy a comfortably sized yard without feeling overwhelmed when it comes to lawn care.

The family room is open to the kitchen with just a short wall separating it from the breakfast room. The sunny breakfast bay features floor-to-ceiling windows.

This kitchen's open design makes it easy to prepare meals and move around. The wood cabinets and white appliances go well together. There's also space above the cabinets to display collectibles or other decorative items.

Additional features in the kitchen include a double sink, pantry and white vinyl floors. There's also an entrance off the kitchen into the two-car garage.

Four spacious bedrooms occupy the second level.

Double doors open into the sumptuous owner's suite, where the owners created a cozy sitting area with a couch. A vaulted ceiling adds to the spacious feel of the room. …
