Fresh bright colors throughout, refinished gleaming hardwood floors, updated kitchen, Central AC and replacement windows. Private parking, but yet tons of street parking on the lovely wide street. A huge screened in porch offers "Summer Living" without the bugs. A finished basement could be anything you want it to be and has a half bath too. Good sized bedrooms upstairs. County schools (Westowne is almost brand new) and unbelievably convenient to down town Baltimore, BWI, Ellicott City and even Fort Meade. Catonsville is the best kept secret around-character, community and commerce. #LivingInCatonsville. You can have it all!
Here is what the sellers have to say.
When we found our wonderful Catonsville home at 5520 Medwick Garth we fell in love immediately; the quiet neighborhood felt just small enough to feel like a close, safe community, and the home was in great shape and clearly taken well care of by its previous owner. We wanted a home with character and this home was exactly what we were looking for. The hardwood floors and bright rooms within the home were also a draw. Having easy parking in the front and private parking in the back was an added bonus.
What we love about our home is the ample space and unique features. We especially enjoy the screened in porch and back patio area. During the spring, summer and fall we eat dinner on the porch. It feels like an oasis every day after coming home from work. The fans throughout the house are high quality and really decrease the energy use of the home. The easy-to-clean, updated windows are also a great energy saver and look crystal clear, bringing a lot of light into the house. We love how quiet and private the home is but with the sense of community as soon as we stepped out of our front door. We love the location of the home, as there is no traffic or parking problems, and yet we are so close to everything.
We completely renovated the kitchen with brand new appliances, flooring, opened up the wall between the kitchen and the dining room and added a full counter-height bar for more space. We repainted the cabinets. We updated the fixtures in the bathroom upstairs. We refinished hardwoods throughout the house and put in new flooring in the basement. We repainted the porch and garage/shed. We recently re-roofed the home and put in a new storm door.
Our utilities with BGE are very low with electric and gas together ranging from 60-90 per month. Water is very cheap in the county, only approximately $15 per quarter!
In Medwick Garth, the neighborhood is great for families of all ages. We enjoyed getting to know all of our neighbors and each year we helped with spring and summer neighborhood clean-up events on the weekends, as well as block parties each summer. We got to know our neighbors well and everyone shovels snow together in the winter and helps each other out.
Some of the things we love about living in Catonsville is that it is close to everything! Being close to the beltway was really nice for commuting and getting to fun weekend getaways easily. We loved the restaurants nearby (Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Japanese) and the easy access to lots of shopping on Rt. 40. Catonsville has great schools and an amazing weekend farmers market to get fresh food.
Some of our favorite restaurants in the area are Indian Delight which has fantastic Indian food, and a great lunch buffet and Catonsville Gourmet which has exceptional seafood and is ideal for any celebration! Black Kettle, in downtown Catonsville, serves delicious cocktails that could be created by top bartenders in any top city, along with great burgers and other food. We loved Hunan Taste, on Rt 40, which makes great authentic Chinese food too. T
The grocery store choices are incredible- from every direction within several minutes you have a Giant, a Safeway, multiple asian marts for cheap produce, and an Aldi on Rt 40. We moved to Baltimore County because of the great housing in a wonderful area that was convenient to the beltway and 95 for easy commuting. UMBC was also a strong draw for us as an employer that is just minutes away. Catonsville is a very attractive area for people to buy their first home, raise a family, and to settle in for a lifetime because it offers a small town feel with all of the conveniences and amenities you could ever ask for. In Catonsville you are close to great parks for hiking, biking, walking and running. You are also close to shopping, entertainment, great schools (elementary through college) and grocery stores.
