ATTENTION ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY AND VETS. This home has a VERY attractive ASSUMABLE VA loan that will save you $350 PER MONTH in your Mortgage payment if you qualify. 12 MINUTES FROM FORT MEADE- IT DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT!
It was “love at first sight” when we drove to 8900 Lincoln Street for the first time. We had seen homes in the Columbia area and they all felt small, old and had mostly unattractive lots. We couldn’t believe we could have a massive 2 car garage AND extra parking on the side. We had a dream to own an RV, which we could easily accommodate, but we added a functional shed instead. The back yard has been amazing, especially since we added the new fence. This beauty had space inside and out and an ideal location in a sleepy community. Everything we wanted.
WHAT THE SELLERS LOVE
The house is on a semi-private driveway, away from the road. It’s the perfect size for a growing family, with 4 great bedrooms (technically 5 bedrooms with the extra room in the basement), a finished basement and a huge back yard with a large deck attached to the house. What we love most about our home is the openness, and yet the cozy feeling. There is plenty of room for the kids to run around and play, and yet, we can all curl up together close in the living room to watch a movie. The kitchen is part of the living area and is not isolated from the rest of the house. We love to entertain and with this floorplan, no one is cutoff. We have enjoyed many wonderful evenings with lots of laughter. We really put a lot of thought and consideration into its design when we completely remodeled it a few years ago, but it truly is the “Heart of our Home”.

COMMUNITY AND AMENITIES
One of the things we love about living in Savage is the “small town” feeling. Savage is a hidden gem in Howard County. It’s quiet and almost a community unto itself, but it is so close to shopping, restaurants, and anything else that you might need. There are several community events throughout the year, like “trunk or treating” at the First Baptist Church for Halloween, the annual “Bollman Bridge lighting” and Savage tree lighting for Christmas, and the annual Savage Fest in the summer. Some of our favorite restaurants in the area are Ma’s Kettle (open only for lunch on weekdays) and the Ram’s Head Tavern, in the Savage Mill. Both are within walking distance. We are also close to many restaurants in Laurel and Columbia. The grocery store that we shop at most frequently is Weis Supermarket, which is only about a mile away. We are also close to Wegman’s, Aldi’s, Harris Teeter, Giant, and Costco. We moved to Howard County because of location and proximity to where we work at Fort Meade -We get to avoid most of the traffic. We truly hope the next owners enjoy this lovely home as much as we have- both of our children were born while we lived here and the ONLY reason we are relocating is because we want to be closer to our family in the mid-west.
