I’m sure you’ve heard the song “Summertime…where the living is easy". Have YOU reached that time of life where the summer means never ending yard work, Fall is about raking and bagging all those leaves and then the nightmare of snow removal is looming on the horizon? Do you have that big house that needs constant maintenance, but you only live in 25% of it- BUT YOU DON’T WANT TO LEAVE HOWARD COUNTY?
Time to make your living easy!
Welcome Home to Waverly Mews. Only 3 years young, this exquisite, convenient "55 or better" condo shows like a model home. Bright and cherished, this lovely main level unit is steps from the pool, the delightful club-house and the well-equipped fitness center.
What the Sellers wanted you to know.
When we found our home at 2121 John Stuart Rd in Marriottsville MD we knew it was perfect for us. The “location “was one of the most important items on our “must have” list. Located near, but not too near, highways, we knew we could quickly access the sites and towns in and around Baltimore, DC and New York.
The convenience of condo living is the best kept secret: having the lawn and exterior structures maintained for us, was what we wanted. When we saw the model of our condo with a large, open concept living, kitchen, and dining area, we knew it would be perfect for our lifestyle. What we love about our home is the spacious floor plan. All the interior rooms are large and comfortable. We have generous storage areas, closets and cabinets. The rooms are flooded with light from the many windows and living on the ground floor provides us easy access to the ample parking. We love fixing dinner in our kitchen and nothing beats the pleasure of friends and family sitting at the counter while we entertain. We are not excluded from the conversation and yet dinner is always on time! Early mornings are treasured moments of either a cup of coffee sitting out on the patio enjoying the green space planted with wild flowers and tall trees or a pleasant walk along the many trails with our puppy. The paved walking path for Waverly Woods winds through beautiful tree canopies and provides views of deer and other wildlife. We meet so many of the neighbors and everyone is friendly and pleasant. We also appreciate the safety of the many street lamps and well-lit sidewalks. The front entry door requires a code providing additional security to condo residents, but we prefer the convenience of our patio entrance. The mailbox is steps away from the front door- also another place for an afternoon conversation. We wanted a fireplace for chilly winter days. So when selecting condo interiors we upgraded with an attractive gas fireplace and mantle surround. It was well worth the investment. We also selected upgraded carpeting to be sure the flooring was going to be comfortable and would last. We installed custom window coverings in every room, ceiling fans in living and bedrooms, had custom crown moldings installed in the main living room, custom window moldings in the bedrooms, and custom paint accents in the dining room and master bedroom. We also purchased a lovely custom light fixture for our dining room.
Our utility costs are remarkably low. BGE is around $90 per month. Our condo heat and cook top are gas (many other condos communities are electric) and the ceiling fans keep our cooling costs low.
Looking for a social life? This community really has it all. In our community we have many activities in which to participate. The pool and gym are gathering places for residents and yet another venue for meeting our neighbors. We receive bi-monthly newsletters keeping us informed about events in the Clubhouse. Activities include book club meetings, football watch parties, CPR classes, Toys for Tots charity drives, and groups for knitting, Bridge, Chess, biking, Second Monday Lunch and more. There is really something for everyone. The Waverly Woods “Lend A Hand Group” provides temporary assistance to any resident needing help. We are glad to be surrounded by such active and friendly neighbors and we really will miss them.
One of our priorities was being close to our family and especially our Grandchildren. They attend the fantastic Howard County Schools that are close by. In the summer they love coming to visit. Despite our Salt Water pool being ADULT ONLY (which is a huge feature to some of our neighbors), across Marriottsville Road a large Olympic size pool with splash pad and nearby playground are available to Condo residents and their families. That’s a big win in our opinion.
The area is outstanding. We are surrounded by all the conveniences we want, but in a beautiful wooded area set back from the rest of the world. The new “Turf Valley Towne Square” is fantastic and offers summer evening concerts and excellent dining options. Combined with Waverly Woods shopping and restaurants we are spoilt for choice. Some of our favorite restaurants within minutes of our home include Primos Pizza and Italian Food, The 620 Grill, Facci’s, Compadres Mexican Food, Rita’s, Dunkin Donuts, and Players Bar and Grill. The grocery store we predominantly use is Harris Teeter, but WEIS, like Harris Teeter, is only minutes away from our condo. If you like to golf you have the luxury of 2 exceptional golf courses to choose from too. A cheeky “Spa Day” at the Turf Valley Resort is always a delight and a wonderful way to celebrate pretty much anything.
We moved to Howard County after researching quality of living and crime statistics in the Baltimore area, the availability of doctors and medical facilities, and the age(s) of residents in and around Marriottsville. Veterinarian pet care is just minutes away and the elevated location of our condo eliminates any concerns about flooding. We were sold by what our research uncovered.
Finally, we value being near everything we could possibly need- BWI, Ellicott City (old and new), Columbia Mall, Baltimore, Washington DC, quaint and historic Frederick, “Philly”, Gettysburg, Annapolis Sykesville, Patapsco State Park, and the many museums and places of interest.
We hope you will be as HAPPY here as we have been.
